WordPress Theme for the next big magazine website and rising publishers – Hades

Hades is an exceptional Wordpress Theme built for the rising publisher. A large content slider in the homepage, beautiful navigation, excellent spacing while retaining its responsive abilities. Typography is state of the art while use of icons are good as well. Social network sharing, a large footer – along with a nice focus on your articles – Hades is a pure delight.

Built for the up and coming publisher. For the next big magazine website. For the promising online journalist. These are words that come to mind at first glance of the awesome Hades WordPress theme. Fully responsive, means that your website will look good in all devices and any resolution.

Content-rich Layout

What I especially like is the homepage. One might expect that “busy” look when it comes to an online magazine – but Hades had somehow managed to contain your information in a way that is pleasing to the eye. A strong content slider that houses your featured articles sits above the fold. Other articles are arranged in a somewhat random fashion – with alternating grid based style right below the slideshow.


Notice the sharing icons right at the very top of the header – this was a nice touch. I especially like the scrolling “Breaking” news bar – which is a good way of presenting “activity” in your home page. Note that random layout I mentioned earlier? Below shows the categories varying from large thumbnails, to four smaller ones – very well done.


Inner Pages

Once an article is clicked – the single post page is as rich as the famed home page. I am in awe with the amount of details put in to this theme. You see the first letter of each article is styled with a rounded black background? How about the star-rating system along with the sharing buttons?


Post content styles are good, sidebar and extra thick footer – all nicely done.

The Next Big WordPress Magazine site

They say that content is king – yes that still stands 100 percent true. But strong web design to partner with that content is a combination built to power the next big magazine site. Hades is simple, centers around your content and beautiful. I won’t be surprised reading the next Techcrunch or Gizmodo in a theme such as this one.
