Magazine templates always fascinate me, today's template makes me filled with joy, a premium magazine template built for blogger and not ported from wordpress like the Zinmag series. The Bmagazine premium blogger template has been built by a fellow countryman Nitesh Kothari.
Its a difficult template to describe and by far the most feature rich template that I have come across for blogger. Nitesh has done a massive job, he also uses this template for his own website.
A small section above the blog title makes way for a date display, a single line to update your visitor list, a RSS subscribe for comments and post, a neat bunch of Home, About, Contact etc links with nice icons.
Next comes the blog title with space for a big leader board advertisement to fit in there on the right. We then come to a multi level drop down, possible to have category - sub category - sub sub category - sub sub sub category, although it does take a little while to load.
The next section is divided into three columns, a popular post widget with a rss link again, an about me section with a lovely hover on image effect, the third one is a subscribe to this blog section.
Under this in the main column you have two more sections where you can add widgets and then the posts start complete with a read more function, though theres no link leading to the full post forcing users to click on the headline, which some may not know.
The social bookmark icons are integrated at the top rather than the bottom, though there is a neat comments icon. Under the headline is the author and post stamp at the bottom of the mini post are the labels.
The sidebar starts off with three ad boxes, has a single column section and then splits into two unequal sections. Then we come to the footer once again is feature rich.
