If you want a template that has magazine features but is still suitable for personal blogs, the template that I will review this time is for you.
I still categorize this wordpress theme into the personal blog category, but there are additional features like online magazine. Introducing, the name wp theme is bloggingbox made by mythemeshop.
I have used this theme on the online magazine project site. Because it feels inappropriate and does not match the content of the site, I replace it with bimber wp theme. Bloggingbox still displays the taste of personal blogs even though there are some elements that make it look like online magazine.
Well, I will review one by one part of the bloggingbox wp theme. For the record, this is a premium theme from mythemeshop. You can buy it for USD $ 35. The features in it are worth the money you spend.
In the header section, there are three elements that you can pay attention to, namely 2 navigation menus and carousel content regulation capabilities. The thing that makes it unique is this part of the carousel, at least in my opinion.
You can insert this shifted carousel with the most interesting content so that visitors can read quickly.
Then at the very top, there is a place to insert the logo. You can make a website logo according to your needs and insert it there. The main menu must be placed on the side of the menu to be seen by the reader.
Then on the second navigation that is under the carousel, can be used to lay trending topics. We know, on social media often discussing a particular topic, you can apply it to your personal blog. Trending topics can be in the form of posts that are widely commented on by blog readers.
To display trending topics in that section, you can use the WP plugin. Please search on Google
2. Main Content
There are not many elements to compile bloggingbox, so I categorize and mind the mother with a personal blog template. We have arrived at main content. This is where all your content will be replaced from the latest to the oldest.
Even so, there are two choices for visitors. The latest and former content is the most widely read by visitors. This template will calculate how much content is read, the results will be displayed on the most popular post tab.
Actually, bloggingbox has two options for displaying main content, namely Grid and list. You can find this configuration in the wordpress customizer section.
3. Subscribe Form
After visitors blog at the bottom, they will find a subscription form, visitors can register their e-mail address so they can get the latest updates.
In order to display the subscribe form, you must install additional plugins that are also provided by mythemeshop. This plugin can be installed for free, it is possible to join the sales package.
In my opinion, the subscribe form display is quite interesting and makes visitors and addresses. The attractive appearance of the subscribe form can indeed be a magnet for prospective new subscribers.
Not much can be discussed in the footer section. In this footer you can add at least 4 widgets, which you can fill in the text that explains you and your blog. You can also add social media.
Bloggingbox has at least 11 Widgets that you can match your needs. But to use the widget, you must install several plug-ins. I think if you want to install the plugin, it will add to the server load. It’s better if it’s not needed, there’s no need to install the plug-in.
That’s my review of the mythemeshop template, namely bloggingbox. Hopefully you who want to build a personal blog but want a more futuristic show, can choose bloggingbox.
The price offered is quite cheap, only about $ 35 USD for a lifetime payment with a free update offer forever.
