The Publication WordPress theme is a free theme from Automattic – the makers of WordPress. Targeted at magazine publications (you might have guessed from the name), it’s large featured images, multiple sidebars, and infinite scroll make it a great way to present large amounts of information in a clean, user-friendly manner.
- Large featured image give a premium feel to the theme.
- Like all Automattic themes, the code has near-perfect markup, is well documented, and cleanly written.
- CSS wizardry uses the calc function to create a large header image, that isn’t removed from the article markup – better semantics mean better SEO.
- No frills beyond what you see. While it looks like a premium theme, it really just shows off the core features of WordPress.
- If you don’t have large images, you’re probably not going to love the way this blog looks.
