After a month of preview Obox Design has released mag.Press, a new WordPress magazine theme. According to David Perel of Obox mag.Press will serve as the framework, or base theme, for future theme releases from Obox. The new theme features multiple home page widgets and a new video widget, but the most notable new feature is the OCMX Typography Manager. Perel explains:
When creating this theme the item that topped our list was the word ‘customizability’. This theme had to be easy to modify not only from a coding stand point but also from the control panel.
This lead to a comprehensive rethink of our font and color styling is managed in a WordPress Theme.
The new Typography Manager allows you to set the size and color for the fonts across the theme. See the demo video for this particular feature just after the jump.
Thanks to Obox we have a copy of mag.Press to give away in the comments. What I want to know (aside from your thoughts on the theme, of course!) is whether you think the Typography Manager is a big step forward for themes. Do you think we’ll see other themes adopting something similar? Most engaging comment wins the theme, so get to it!
