Shoutbox Magazine

Shoutbox is a minimal Magazine and Blog Theme, that uses a very elegant Featured Slider for news presentation. It is built on one of the most flexible WordPress Themes on Themeforest. With the help of a dynamic Template Builder you can create stunning page layouts without any coding knowledge.

Yet if you are a developer eager to create your own PHP files the theme supports you as well with a very structured folder and file system. It has a unique built in slideshow manager (no plugins needed), supports both self hosted videos as well as vimeo, youtube, etc and comes with a content importer for faster setup.

    I just checked it out and its a really cool template, but i have a little issue with it, in the slider were you have the images and videos, i noticed that if you decide to play a video on the slider, it not possible because the slider keeps moving and you wont be able to watch the video on the slider.

    I’m currently using your Newscast theme. How difficult would it be for me to switch to the Shoutbox theme?

    In the past, when I have switched themes, there has been at least a two days of work to get the new theme to work with my older posts. Would that happen with this switch or are they pretty compatible?

    Hi, I was looking for more info about the theme Coalition on Themeforest but I can not see any here or in the forum. Is it very new or very old or where can I get support if I buy the theme? Looks like what I need.

    There are so many WordPress themes around. Is it advisable to use a free one? What are the limitations when you use a free theme?
