Infowazz, Modern Viral Content Magazine Theme – Just another Your SUPER-powered WP Engine Multisite Install site

I suppose this theme is trying to cash in on the hype surrounding the site infowars (yuck!) but honestly, this theme looks nothing like the site with Alex Jones’ delusional, psychotic ramblings* but a name is a name and what’s in a name?

Created by a theme-maker called Mazda, Infowazz is a nice looking theme, I’d say.  The layout is clean, clear.  I like the promotional areas at the top, I think with the right images, this theme could really get some attention.  Blogging about or actually writing news of any kind, man the competition is high!  Celebrity gossip, breaking political events, weather reports and all of that, there are tons of sites dedicated to each one, so standing out can be a challenge.

Infowazz is responsive, it’s clean and clear in terms of layout, it’s flexible and well coded.  It’s only garnered 100 or so sales in the year it’s been out and the reviews are mixed at best, it gets a 4.2 overall rating.  Not great, but not the worst I’ve ever seen either.

* this is only my opinion.

Here’s what the developer, Mazda, says about the Infowazz WordPress theme:

InfoWazz is a WordPress theme that lets you write articles and blog posts with ease. It is fully responsive, retina ready and has many powerful features. We offer great support and friendly help!

The InfoWazz theme is excellent for a news, newspaper, magazine or publishing site. It uses the best clean SEO practices, and on top of that, it’s fast, simple, and easy to use. In addition, InfoWazz supports responsive Google Ads and AdSense.

InfoWazz theme is clean, flexible, retina ready and has a fully responsive design. InfoWazz theme is loaded with features, and has powerful customization options. Built with HTML5 & CSS3. It comes with free support on our support forum.

So, I checked out the reviews on Theme Forest, it looks like there are some issues regarding support for this theme.

Don’t purchase this theme if you expect any type of support. It will not happen. DO NOT pay for added support if you do purchase this theme.


So, buyer beware, this theme may not be long for this world.  Once you start losing people because you don’t support the theme, it’s a downward spiral into deletion territory.  Anyways, that’s Infowazz and I think for many, it could be a pretty solid choice for a magazine theme.  Though be prepared to support it yourself.

Mad Talent Designs – Infra, WordPress Beginner Friendly Reviews Magazine Theme

Infra, WordPress Beginner Friendly Reviews Magazine Theme WordPress Theme demo

Clean, Elegant, Infra.  I don’t know what that means, I mean I do, but I don’t…it doesn’t matter.  Ignore me.

Anyway, this theme is called Infra, it’s by Orange Themes, and it’s a simple little magazine theme with a twist…or orange!  Get it?! Infra bills itself as a very simple to use, very user friendly and easy to customize theme for beginners.  If you’re not too experienced with WordPress, customizing your own theme can be a bit of a chore.  But Infra uses the WordPress theme options panel to make that process a relative breeze.

Infra has a high res display, a ratings system for reviewing products.  It’s really an ideal reviews magazine or blog where reviewing products is a key component of what you have to offer the internet.

Simple design, clear navigation, Infra does a lot at a very reasonable price.  The support from Orange themes is solid, though this theme only receives a 4.0 rating from ThemeForest, which isn’t that high, to be honest.

All in all though, if you like the style, it may be worth the money.
