WordPress, the currently fastest growing CMS software, is now associated with Many famous blogs, news outlets, Knowledge-base sites, music sites, Fortune 500 companies. In start touted as Bloggers favoring website creation Platform has now become News and Magazine website’s Best choice. We as group of Bloggers have evolved with wordpress and have used some of the Free themes or templates to build our Blogs but search was not easy as we literally searched thousand of themes (WordPress has Millions of Free themes to offer!!). Magazine or News based free wordpress themes are easily available but most of them lack in Features to offer.

So to ease the pain of New wordpress enthusiasts, we have tried to sort the best New News/ Magazine themes  for you. Our Criteria to List themes were

  1. Clean Look
  2. Easy to Customize
  3. SEO Friendly
  4. Banner Ads (To be specific in Header, For god sake, if you want to earn some bucks with your blogging, Header banner ads are Must!!), i simply can not compromise with Header banner ads.

Except Hueman Other Templates are new and recently released so that your website will have a New Look 


What Can be expected from the Creator of Best Free Magazine theme(Hueman) at, another Gem!!

The instant you see the template, you will instantly recognize the ‘Hueman’ Look in this new Template, but let me break it for you it is way more advanced than ‘Hueman’.

A detailed and polished magazine theme with a premium taste. Positioned to the left of the screen, it gives a unique look with large social buttons.


With a carousel and clear design, the articles you feature in Enspire will stand out. A great theme for a blog or magazine.

Another Wonder for Alex, one can say he has artistic eye. His themes are super clean, easy to customize,SEO Friendly( I can vouch for that). How can this theme is for Free and want to test support you will get at Alxmedia just use their Free or Premium themes? You will be amazingly surprised. You may find me little biased but you will know if you had used his themes.

3.MH Edition lite


MH themes  are known for quality Magazine templates but their free versions Really lack in features and i think this is where their New entry MH Edition lite out shines their other free themes. For me Feature to add banner ad in Header worked immensely.

This magazine theme can transform your current WordPress website into a powerful and yet lightweight online magazine or dynamic news website with a nice flat design. Benefit from a fully responsive layout which is suitable for all modern mobile devices and browsers.
