Updated: March 12, 2014

As I mentioned in a previous post, one of the things WordPress Hacks is most known for is our WordPress theme galleries. Because of this, we have worked really hard to maintain them by both adding new themes as they are released, as well as removing older themes that are either outdated, are no longer available, or are no longer supported by their authors.

One of the most common requests I get via our contact form is to break apart our galleries into more of a niche focused display of WordPress themes. Because we aim to serve, this post will be the first of a three part series breaking down the premium WordPress themes available. Next we will be going through our free galleries and looking for more helpful ways to display those as well.

This first WordPress gallery was designed to feature some of the best News and Magazine Premium WordPress themes currently available for purchase. I included both styles because the lines are kind of blurred between the two and I didn’t want any debate over which category each one falls under. Themes are not listed in any particular order and I have included any listed features with the theme whenever it was possible.
