Magnific a Stunning CMS Theme for WordPress

WordPress was originally intended for bloggers only and it rapidly gained momentum. Today WordPress in not only the most popular blogging platform, but it is also invading other publishing areas with great success. It is quite common today to see business website (typically referred to as CMS), shops, community/member sites etc. build using WordPress. Even traditional magazine publishing is possible and worth considering. Over the years the WordPress multiuser publishing and CMS capabilities have improved significantly and it has grown into a mature, very user friendly and powerful publishing platform. In this review I have looked at the Magnific CMS theme from WPZOOM – a good choice for building a website with WordPress.
