Continuum – Magazine HTML Theme
Content Is King
This is the HTML version of the very popular Continuum WordPress Magazine Theme. Continuum was designed and built by a die-hard blogger who has used magazine-style templates for 5+ years. It is best used for newspaper and magazine blogs, but because of all of the custom templates, layouts, pre-built CSS styled elements, and color schemes, it can be molded into whatever kind of site you want, like a portfolio site for example. Continuum features a robust, professional grid-based article layout (with 4 unique variations) to display your posts, and has the added bonus of being jQuery enhanced, featuring 5 different jQuery content sliders (with 3 unique featured slider variations). It’s 100% valid XHTML with intuitive and clean code that is indented, spaced, and well-commented throughout.
Continuum is great for Magazine & News blogs, Gaming sites, Movie & Music review blogs, product review sites like Cnet.com, portfolio sites, personal blogs, and book review blogs.
Engineered for the pros. Crafted for the up-and-comers. Made for you.
