Product Description

Last update: Version 1.13.1 – August 23, 2013

A feature-rich, professional media and magazine theme. Max Mag is fully-responsive, retina-ready and includes unlimited color schemes, a “sticky” menu bar, a slider on each category page, 5 different ad units (including a wallpaper and mobile ad), a drag-and-drop homepage, 16 custom widgets, secondary feature headlines, SEO friendly and so much more!


Congrats, MVP Themes! I’ve just started using Max Mag and it’s by far the most wonderful and the simplest theme for an online magazine (coming from my experience, since this is my third purchase on ThemeForest). Coming with Theia Slider is just wonderful because I was planning to purchase it separately.

No coding skill necessary (I have none) – This is the first time I haven’t paid a third party for modifications.

I am amazed and very grateful for such wonderful work. Just wanted to lay back my feedback to you!

Keep up the good work, MVP Themes!
- claudiaico Rated 5 stars – Not only did the theme give all the functionality I was looking for in a new project, more importantly the support has been fantastic. Often replies have come fast and tickets have been reopened without question where issues weren’t 100% resolved. Would be more themes from this author in the future for this alone.
- GoodPropertyGuide I rate this theme and the developer 5 stars!
I just want to leave a comment and say that I’m very impressed with both this theme and the developer. I obviously don’t want to see a bunch of sites that are the same theme as mine so I never leave reviews but I can’t be quiet on this one. I had some issues NOT related to the theme but to the way my sites content is published and the developer was super faster with email support, I mean, within minutes I was getting replies and the solutions worked great!
I have purchased many themes over the years from various sites and companies and for the way that this theme looks to your audience i.e not a wordpress based site and for how much you can customize this site I must tip my hat to the developer. Great job! Many themes look nice but you must have at least an intermediate understanding of the core working of wordpress to make them work, that is not the case here, you simply drag, drop, select and hit save. Literally that’s all you do for 90% of the theme!

This is a brilliant theme, one of the best I have had the pleasure of installing. And whats more, the after sales service is second to none.- WarwickJones

I just want to say I am very happy with this theme, simple, fast loading, and intuitive. Congratulations to its creator and say you’ve done a great job, keep it up.- pototo

Let me first congratulate you and give an absolute 5 star rating to this theme. I find the theme exactly what I needed for my magazine website. The options are great and the ease of building home page was fantastic. I have HTML knowledge not PHP , but in this theme everything was so organized it was easy for me to make the necessary changes I wanted to make.- WebPixels

My problem has been solved so quickly.. I’m really happy with your support, it’s simply the best I ever had on Themeforest ! Thank’s again for your great theme and your effectiveness.- ALavocat

I’ll say that this is definitely the best out-of-the-box responsive, magazine style theme I’ve come across (and I’ve worked with dozens in the past few months alone).- jrcworth

Key Features

Responsive design – Max Mag adjusts its layout based on the device it is being viewed on. This means the theme’s content will be easy to read and easy to navigate whether it is being viewed on a desktop computer, a tablet or a mobile device.

Retina ready – The theme and its images look sharp and crisp on retina-ready devices!

Unlimited color schemes – Using Max Mag’s custom color picker, you are free to choose any color as the primary theme color, another for the main menu background color and one for the primary link color.

Slider on category pages – No more boring category pages with a list of the most recent posts. Max Mag gives you a slider to display your most recent posts on your category pages!

Post & Page Slideshows -Max Mag utilizes Theia Post Slider to give you dynamic slideshows in your posts and pages. Now, you can increase page views and ad impressions while providing excellent, organized content in a fluid slideshow. The slideshow comes with a set of options that includes the ability to reload the page with each slide to increase ad impressions.

“Sticky” menu bar – Max Mag comes with a “sticky” menu bar that will always stay at the top of your device window as you scroll down the page for quick and easy navigation.

5 different ad units – Max Mag takes full advantage of available ad space to give you 5 different ad units, including a rare wallpaper ad! The ad units include a 970×90 leaderboard ad (which can also be used as a 728×90 ad banner), a 320×50 mobile ad, a wallpaper ad, and unlimited 300×250 and 160×600 ads.

Drag-and-Drop Homepage – Create unlimited homepage layouts by dragging and dropping our custom widgets into the layout that gives your website the professional look and feel you are truly looking for.

15 Custom Widgets – From a custom carousel widget that displays your content prominently on the homepage to an optional homepage blog layout widget, Max Mag gives you the flexibility and ease of use to display your content the way you want it without altering any code.

Featured Headline – Most major news and magazine sites use shorter “teaser” headlines in their featured content section on the homepage. Max Mag gives you the same option to spruce up your featured items with a custom “teaser” headline.
