Kernel – Premium WordPress Blog & Magazine Theme Review

KERNEL is Premium WordPress Theme that will work either for Magazine or News portals.

KERNEL has 3 news blocks on the homepage (7 post, 5 post and 9 posts news blocks), a gallery page with two different styles (Default gallery and Fancybox Gallery), a Blog page with 2 styles (“News and posts with big images” and “News and posts with small images”) and 3 sliders (Blog, Homepage and Breaking News slider). Redesigning KERNEL is extremely easy (no more hard-coded design). With the newest Orange Themes Control Panel, KERNEL makes editing/adding/changing all settings extremely easy; that’s why KERNEL is your best choice for Magazine or News Portals.
