Update – Extra theme has been launched – Read the detailed review here

My main aim is to write posts for people who want to make money from web designing and without learning web languages. I always try to explore all possible resources those are eye-catching and highly profitable for those who want to earn money from web design business.

You would listen about drag and drop layout builder themes and plugins  used to create custom static homepage designs using WordPress. But when it comes to create a dynamic layout with automatically changing content, it doesn’t remain so easy. For example Visual Composer includes some dynamic modules such as Post grid, Post scroller; but when we add these modules to our page, these modules generate content with unpleasant look. The content generated by these modules are so awful that we have to remove it immediately from our layout. To make this content nice we need to work hard to apply custom CSS to the content generated.

What we need in a Magazine style drag and drop builder theme

The biggest requirement of a magazine style theme is the modules that can display posts from custom categories in different styling including “post scroller” module. With a drag and drop theme we can rearrange widgets anywhere on the page and it is a highly appealing feature for web designers who need to create different magazine style layouts for different News websites.

Even I am waiting for Extra theme. I will adopt this theme for Webcusp. I was afraid if the price of Elegant Themes membership would be hiked after launch of this robust theme that is why I purchased the membership to save me from probable price hike in future.
