Jerry’s note: Portal is not entirely a magazine-style WP theme but it’s just too beautiful to be ignored. Portal’s theme layout is highly customizable so theoretically you can build any sort of sites with this theme. The theme comes with 6 pre-designed layout templates – which I think it’s a huge plus for those who are too lazy to customize their site theme.
