Yet another contest

This is the first time that I saw a theme that I really want to have so pardon the very off-topic post. The very pleasing theme you see below is called Block Magazine Theme (currently on sale for $59 per download) which was designed by none other than WordPress Rockstar Adii.

Features of Block MagazineWordpress Theme

  • Magazine-style homepage layout, with various sub-page layouts for the single post, archives and static pages
  • Domtab integrated into the sidebar to display either Recent Articles, Popular Articles or Most Commented Articles
  • Seperate RSS 2.0 feeds for All Articles, Featured Articles and Comments
  • Easy-to-edit “About” section at the top of the sidebar (edit about.php)
  • 300 x 250 Advertisement Spot below the sidebar (edit ad300×250.php)

Block Magazine

What I like about the theme:

  • The DOM tab. It’s so clever because you can save a lot of valuable space instead of displaying all those items all at once.
  • Color. It’s a blue-theme site that’s actually eye candy.
  • Segregated content. It’s actually what I’m looking for in a theme for this blog in particular because of the set of Series posts I’m planning and have already started on.

I’ve noted that there seems to be an issue with the Dom Tab Firefox. Here’s a comparison:

It’s a minor issue which I think is caused by the Gecko Engine of Mozilla (decreasing the font size fixes the problem) so no worries on the theme itself.

Want it too? Here’s what you do:

      Yeah it looks cool! I wanted the Revolution theme earlier but my posts are wordy so it’ll be a complete waste. Anyway good luck to us…
