    These are the best magazine themes I have ever see. Which do you suggest for a political news website?

  2. I think, Weekly is the best for that.

  3. Mokany says:

    Which of these magazine themes are mobile friendly?

    • It think nearly all of them, but you can use plugins to make them working with mobile devices.

  4. Levira says:

    Very nice looking premium magazine style wordpress themes here. What do you think about the free ones? Are they good?

    • There are some pretty good looking ones, but many of them are badly coded for SEO. If you can make the changes for SEO, they can be good, as well.
