Zeen Magazine WordPress Theme for 2019

Zeen is a next generation magazine WordPress theme. You’ve literally never seen or used a magazine that looks or works like this before. Zeen can quickly be mastered by users of any skill level. Power your creative ideas and create a beautiful, silky-smooth and highly unique magazine, blog, newspaper, reviews site or even full blown WooCommerce shop.

Everything in Zeen was completely built from the ground up. This approach allowed the theme to embrace the very latest cutting-edge technologies around, undergo deep design explorations and re-think the established way of doing things. This has resulted in Zeen having incredible performance and is very likely the fastest theme of its kind ever made. Some Zeen demos score a perfect 100/100 score on GTMetrix (links to reports are further down) and the rest are all mid to high 90s. The theme is impressively flexible, intuitive and customisable. Best of all, you can create almost any magazine layout you can imagine without touching a single line of code. Users can become pro users in no time and it is so moldable that even savvy visitors will not be able to tell what theme is being used by simply looking at the site any more.

Zeen was designed by an experienced designer, coded by an experienced coder, optimised by an experienced SEO specialist and all to create an unbeatable product that can help you take your site to a whole new level. Codetipi also provides friendly and helpful customer support. No wonder Codetipi is the #1 rated Power Elite author on Themeforest.

Zeen for Magazines, Blogs, Newspapers or Review sites

Zeen’s groundbreaking design, flexibility and small learning curve make it perfect for sites of any size, from the biggest to the smallest. Zeen is the ideal WordPress theme for any magazine, blog, newspaper, personal diary, photo-stories, affiliate sites and even full-blown WooCommerce shops.

The Zeen demos can all be imported with one click and provides inspiration on how the theme could potentially be used on a site of any niche, including technology, food, videogames, minimal, personal, lifestyle and fashion. Features from the demos can all be mixed and matched too.

The Tipi Builder is truly an industry game-changer that will improve your workflow and increase the enjoyment you get from maintaining your site.

Zeen is an extremely powerful WordPress theme and has a huge amount of features. It is coded extremely cleanly and smartly, meaning it has amazing performance, and thanks to this, you will likely be able to reduce the number of plugins you have installed.

Plugins are not inherently bad, but the coding quality of free plugins varies and bad code can badly affect performance so it’s recommended that if Zeen has a particular feature, use that instead of plugins.

All of Zeen demos score very highly in website speed tests, in fact, multiple of the demos actually score a perfect 100/100 score – you can see Zeen speed reports here.

You can enter the text and the url of the text that appears next to the checkbox giving you complete control. If you find there is another location/element that could do with extra options, please open a ticket in support with the information.

Post Heart Like Count

If you enable the like functionality and a user clicks on the heart, the counter value for that post will increase by one. To stop users from voting multiple times, a cookie is used with the post ID, so the theme knows not to show the like functionality to that user for that post again.

    Hey Bulletorthechapstick (Great name!), Loving that you're loving it :) What kind of portfolio functionality are you thinking of exactly? Depending on your needs, could you not create gallery posts using one of the gallery designs to showcase imagery? Such as ? Codetipi

    Hi Chris! I just rated Zeen 5 stars, and the only reason for that is... because I can't rate it 6, 7 or even 10 stars lol Zeen is AMAZING! I was mind-blown by the videos before purchasing it, but this is the first time I buy a theme and discover that there's even more possibilities than I believed it had, actually. Congratulations and thank you so much for creating this! (If you are thinking about buying Zeen and came to check the comments: it is 100% worth the money). I have some questions: 1. My progress bar looks "thinner" than it does on your demos, like you can see here: I looked everywhere and could not find where to make it thicker. Can you help me out? I want it to look exactly like the demos. Also, a suggestion: it would be great if it's color was the post category color! ;) 2. I already used force regenerate thumbnails and emptied my cache with Autoptmize and W3, but some pictures look weird on both mobile and desktop, as you can see here: and here: . What do you suggest to solve this problem? 3. The only place google ads display correctly is on my sidebar. it looks like this everywhere else: I'm using Tipi Builder, the Ads block. 4. How can I change the "load more" button color? 5. I'm using Grid Mix D. If I put it edge to edge, it cut's off the byline, but I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if it's a glitch. Also, I decided to use some gradient overlay on it. But it only shows when I'm in Tipi Builder mode. If I publish, nothing has changed once I refresh the page. If I go back to Tipi Builder, it's there like I wanted. 6. Stylish Articles Widget: is there a way to put the title inside the image like you have here? I believe it's a different widget but asking doesn't hurt lol Also, can I have dates shown for one specific category, which is my "news" category, but hidden for the rest? And last question: can I make thumbnails have the same size? Because mine look like this: 7. How can I change the "purchase" icon that appears on sticky menu bar on a review post? I review restaurants, so my "purchase" links are actually a "book now" link. I tried to put a font awesome icon on Let's Review options but it's not appearing on the affiliate button. 8. I could not find the strings to translate the "share/tweet" buttons. I translated every share word on Poedit but could not find the word "tweet" and the "share" word I found definitely was not for those buttons. Is there a way to do it? Once again, thank you so so sooooo much for the best theme ever!

    Hey Fparonetto, Wow, thank you so much for the amazing words, really happy to hear you're enjoying it :) 1- The progress bar is the same thickness as the main menu's bottom bar thickness, do you have it set to 0 by any chance? 2- Oh that looks weird indeed, they are such small thumbnails that you should 100% have a thumbnail that fits nicely there, could you open a ticket at and include the url where that is visible to check it out? 3- Ah that is because due to changes in Theme requirements and for security, to store a Javascript ad (such as that), you need to use this free plugin: to create a shortcode version of the ad. Then simply paste the shortcode in the relevant places it will work as expected. The other bonus of this method is that if you ever want to change that ad, you simply change it in the shortcode options and it will automatically update in every location where you used that shortcode. 4- A new option to change that easily has been added in v1.0.7 update. In Theme Options > Global Options > Global Colors: Load More Background color option :) 5- Could you please include more info about this in the ticket to investigate (include url where it's visible). 6- That one you see in the demo is actually not a widget, it's a Tipi Builder Block (Slider) :) To hide dates you need some clever CSS as that's so specific:

    .byline { display: none; }
    .category-news .byline { display: inline-block; }
    and replace the "news" bit with the slugname of your category, And those thumbnails are not right, I think something went wrong with your regeneration because that is not normal. 7- Please can you include the link in the ticket too. 8- Those are actually from the .po files in Zeen Engine plugin, are you translating to Portuguese? If something is incomplete, could you please then send the updates ones over to include them in the theme? This way you don't have to upload them after every update. Thanks again! Codetipi

    I just opened my ticket there, thank you! 1- Yep that's what I did. All good now! :D 2- Sent it on the ticket 3- Like a charm! Thank you! :D 4- Ok! Waiting for v1.0.7 update, then! 5- Sent it on the ticket 6- Oh I thought it was a sidebar with widgets. It all makes sense now lol I'm gonna try it later. Thank you! 7- Sent it on the ticket 8- Oh I did not realize it was the plugin, I was just trying to translate the theme. Gonna translate the engine and I'll send the translated version to you later so you can include on your files and maybe help more costumers too. Thank you!

    Quick question: I have some pages I built with page builder. Now I want to add page headers to them, like the one you have here: I put the image I want but for some reason they are not displaying. Do they only work on regular (non-pagebuilder) pages? How can I have an image header with page title if they are build with page builder?

    Ah yes those headers are for non-builder pages, as they are completely different in how they work. Can't you simply use the Image Tipi Block? Or the Call To Action block (to put a title on) instead?

    Hi, I think that availability of additional documentation on theme's customization would be helpful. It's perhaps the weakest issue on my opinion. For example: I would like to have the drop down menus being vertical and not horizontal, because all the menu items can't fit in the available space. On the dropdown menus is not an option to customize it as vertical. Any guidance? Thanks. Rogerio

    I have a problem with the english version of my homepage! 1) I created my site in my first language, all ok! 2) I set the homepage using tags, all ok...the homepage work correctly. 3) Then I started translating the single articles in English, all ok! I translated all using WPML and all the articles in english are ok. 4) Then I set new tags for the english content. For example, I have HomepageIT for the italian version and I use it on italian articles that I want to show on the italian homepage AND I have HomepageEN for the english version and I want to use it on english articles that I want to show on the english homepage. BUT when I try to setup the english homepage via tipibuilder the content dissapear when I select tha Tags as source option. And I see that there are, for example 5 articles with a specific tag. Can you help me?

    Just noticed something and I'm not sure if it's intended or an issue with my images specifically, but the above header block / top of site block in a grid of 4 is pulling 390x390px square images (as far as I could inspect) but the actual size of the squares displayed are 480x480px, which is making them blurry. I did see that there's a list of sizes in the a tag, but can't tell if it's only using the smaller version and scaling it up. Not sure if there's a fix for that, or at least a way to have it scale down from a sharper looking version to make it appear less blurry.

    Hey Ianskate, Thanks for choosing Zeen, hope you're enjoying it :) Yeah they are set to be 390x390, because 4 x 390 is almost 1600px. Screens much bigger than this are usually High DPI screens, so they would actually automatically load a bigger thumbnail and look sharp. If they aren't Retina, then it will load 390px because at the same time you also need to remember non-retina smaller screens (laptops), so for example 1280px screens that aren't Retina won't be loading bigger than needed images. In short, it's all about balance, it isn't possible to get the perfect thumbnail sizes for every size screen as there are so many out there :) Codetipi

    Hi! presales questions: 1. Is there any demo more standard blog/magazine format without bigger images? 2. Maybe you can add a little feature to enable/disable an option to show pinterest/tumblr share icons in any media image on the posts? many people like to share concret image on pinterest and this can provide extra traffic. 3. Tipi builder works fine for posts too, or is more oriented to pages only? If is used tipi builder in posts, can provoke loading slowness? 4. About advertising, this them add options to manage in different ways the ads depends on the resolution of the device of the visitor? I like to use Adsense with specific dimensions for desktop and other dimensions for mobile. Thanks!

    Hey Kek0, Thanks for checking out Zeen :) 1- Most demos do indeed showcase big imagery, however, you 100% can use smaller images everywhere. I think a demo showing smaller images is a great suggestion and will be looked at. However, if you do get the theme before then, you can definitely build a site like that. For example, there is an option to adjust the site width, so you could start by making it more narrow if you want to. Then you could simply build your homepage using the Tipi Builder and creating a layout with smaller images outputting. Finally, inside posts/pages, you can select featured image styles and layout options that use smaller images and if you want a big image, you set that one to be bigger - it's all up to you :) 2- You can install a free plugin to show a Pinterest share icon over images, so yeah you can do that too. 3- The Tipi Builder can not be used on posts. Because of the direction of WordPress (Gutenberg), it was decided to make Zeen extra future-proof by letting WordPress' new builder control posts and the Tipi Builder controls homepage/category/tags/landing pages/etc, as even though Gutenberg's long-term plan is to also do these things, the truth is it will likely never allow you to create layouts as advanced or beautiful as the Tipi Builder, because of the fragmented approach it will always have. For posts, Zeen comes with powerful post options system that allow you to set how your featured image + post layout + special header choice for this post, allowing you to create unique and beautiful posts. 4- Themes are not allowed to manipulate ads (despite what others may claim), and the correct way to abide by AdSense terms is to use the AdSense responsive ad feature, this will allow you to have different sizes that adapt to the screen, you can do it like this: Hope this helps :) Codetipi

I'm a bit surprised that isn't an option already... I'm finding it a bit difficult to customize with my own CSS as it is right now. Is this something that could be added soon?

    Hi! I have a question about ads. What ad formats do codetipi support? Html, plain graphic, adsense? Is it possible to rotate different ad formats in one block?

    Hey Aviory, Thanks for checking out Zeen :) You can use any ad you want. All the ad locations (loads of them) in the theme are a simple input option where you input your code. If you have a complex ad (such as Javascript or similar) then you should install this free plugin: to create a shortcode from your ad code, and then you just paste that shortcode everywhere. This method is more secure and also means that in the future if you want to change the ad in all those locations, you simply update the shortcode code (otherwise you have to go manually edit all the locations!). And the ad locations are all automatic too, so as an example, inside the posts you can set an ad to appear automatically at the top/bottom/middle of the article content. You simply enter your code in the Theme options, and then the ad will appear in the relevant location in all your posts. And by the way, the auto-middle location option is the most recommended one, as users who see it are reading the article so are more likely to see + click :) Hope this helps. Codetipi

    Hi, the theme looks very interesting and I think i will buy it! :) I have a few questions before: 1. Does it have some prepared different sliders with nice effects for features posts for home page? 2. Can you mix effects and elements from different demos? 3. Is it possible to change hover effect? Right now I see it's mostly "zoom-in", can you change it for something else, like highlighting or something like that? 4. For the single post pages, can you change the width of the text content? 5. Tech-Demo layout in single post view also supports text on the left and widgets area on the right? 6. Is it possible to also disable/enable blocks only for Tablet view? 7. Is it easy to change font colors, link colors, font sizes & styles in different elements? 8. The only settings you can change were shown in Tibi buiilder video? Or it has also settings specifically for this theme? For example general settings, styles, headers, footers etc. ? 9. - can you add link for the background ad? 10. In this demo also on Opera browser, when you scroll down there is a few pixels gap between top-bar and top border of the browser 11. There is also a white gap on the right side 12. Is it possible in this demo at the top of the homepage to add more space above top-bar? To make the add in the bg more visible Thank you in advance :)

    Hey Kiko91, Thank you very much for checking out Zeen :) 1- Yeah, there are currently four sliders in the Tipi Builder, check out this demo showing the Slider of 1 with the full-screen option enabled: You can have sliders of 1/2/3/4 posts, and the one of 1 has a parallax sliding effect (on the demo above), the others scroll normally as you'd expect. 2- Yeah, all demos were created with theme options, so you can mix and match different parts of them all! 3- Yes definitely, check this video out which shows the theme options. It shows the grid options and you'll see the hover option in action. Grids/Sliders/Other posts can all be set to hover/not hover: 4- Yes, articles have loads of different layouts, each post can be different. If you look at various posts from the first demo, you'll see posts use different layouts. One that isn't shown too much is the extra-wide content (same width as main menu) with no sidebar. 5- Yeah, you can have any articles any way you want by individually setting the option inside the post. 6- No that isn't possible yet, but very likely going to be possible in a future theme update ;) 7- and 8- Check out the video in #3 and you can see for yourself how easy it is ;) 9- Yes, you can add a link to the background very easily. As it's just a demo and not a real ad I didn't set one :) 10- Ah yes, that is a bug in the Chromium engine (Opera uses same engine as Chrome), and it was fixed in their very latest version, need to wait for Opera to update and hopefully include the fix. 11- Can you share a screenshot of this one please? 12- Yes, I manually set the amount of spacing there for the ad, so you can set anything you want if you have a bigger ad. I hope this helps :) Codetipi

    Hi guys, so I've been playing with the theme and notice few things I wasnt aware of before. - It seems that Tipi Builder is only available for pages ? Why can't we also have it for posts ? I need to be able to fully customize my posts as well. - Inside Tipi builder, you have a Custom block, where we can add any codes. The problem is that it is stripping the codes, even simple HTML doesnt work. It's necessary to have a block where we can add anything we want (Adsense, html and other...) I also have more specific issues that I added to Tipi Support. Let me know! Thanks

    Hey Cyrilstyle, Sure thing: 1- The Tipi Builder is for pages/categories/tags/custom taxonomies. Posts was an idea in the early days, but because of Gutenberg (WordPress 5.0), it was better to let Gutenberg take care of the posts + with Zeen's theme options to create beautiful posts. Tipi Builder can take care of the rest. Gutenberg eventually will also do Homepages, but the truth is that is far away from now and even when it comes, it won't be able to create the layouts the Tipi Builder was made to do, so this is why Zeen and Tipi Builder have ended up how they are now :) 2- In the Custom Block you can use custom code, but for security reasons it has to be via a shortcode. You can do it with this free plugin: Set your ad code there and then paste the shortcode into the custom code block. And sure thing, see you in the support system. Hope this helps! Codetipi

    Thank you for your answer: But I need to be able to customize posts as much as possible not just pages! It was one of main reasons I purchased the theme :( 1- So if I cannot have Tipi Builder in Post then I still need Visual Composer! Otherwise how can you have fully custom posts (not the Zeen pre-designed layouts!) I dont have Guttenberg, dont want to install it now and it's not enough powerful for me. Is it an option we could have in the future? Would be great to have the option in the Customizing > Posts - to choose to activate Tipi Builder for posts! 2- I dont understand why it is called Custom code ? You are telling me that to just add simple HMTL like

    Title here
    or just DIVs like
    or JS I need to install the plugin and then create a shortcode everytime ?? 3- It is a bit unclear how to customize the categories layout with Tipi builder? (Nothing to been seen on the category edit pages) Let me know Thanks!

    You're welcome! 1- Can I ask what kind of layouts are you building for your posts? You can definitely use VC if you want to use it for posts, but if you show me show examples of what you need to build, maybe I can think of a better/future-proof solution. 2- Ah no, shortcodes are only for ad code which use special code such as JavaScript, basic HTML such as divs should work fine. But just a by the way, center wouldn't work because that element is now obsolete and shouldn't be used anymore: To center an element you could use

    text here
    But it sounds like you're arranging actual text content here, is that so? If so, why not use the Text + headings block, you can use the toolbar inside of it to easily center/bold/italic/links/etc in there. 3- Oh right, simply go edit your category in Posts > Categories and you should see a big Tipi Builder button to launch it in there. Hope this helps. Codetipi

    Ok, thank you for your answer: 1- The layouts are fully customs and always different depending on the type of article, so I cannot show you examples. Now, problems: when I have a VC post, in the infinite scroll post, the theme is not reading it well and shows the codes ( see here I noticed it showing the VC codes as well on the category page: I can hide it with the More tag, not ideal, but then you cannot access the post (the more tag links doesnt seem to work there) - It would be great if the infinite scroll post shows the full VC layout on next post. Best will be if there's a way to deactivate the more tag functionality? 2- Ok, if it is just the Ads codes and it doesnt strip the HTML then it is fine :) 3- Yes, that is where I went, looked everywhere, it wasnt there, but now it is! Great option :) Let me know, thanks!

    You're welcome! 1- Ah VC scripts need to re-loaded with each infinite scroll, this is possible, but we need to identify the scripts it uses. Can you please ask the VC people the following: "I am loading posts content via ajax, but it appears broken. What files (I need exact the filepath within the plugin) from VC need to be reloaded after the ajax to display them properly?" And report back the answer, then I can show you how to do that. 2- :) 3- Great to hear, enjoy :) Codetipi

    OK guys, thank you! So as far as VC issue with Ajax, you will definitely have other users that will have the issue. Here's what the VC support is saying: "It is required to use WPBMap::addAllMappedShortcodes(); function in the template before do_shortcode method if it is outptut via ajax." Let me know when you have a chance. THank you!

    Sure thing, but please mention the plugin you used in the ticket. Try using the one made by Automattic (they made WordPress, so kind of considered the "official" one). :)

    I switched to this AMP plugin: Google now says my page is valid. Plus I can now insert Google Adsense Auto Amp Ads.

    Hi, is there a way to make a whole column sticky? I mean, I have 2 objects on the column, and as it is right now If I both set on sticky they overlap. Thanks!

    Hey Aldebaran9, Thanks for choosing Zeen, hope you're enjoying using it. Currently if they are separate blocks inside the column, then the block you assign the sticky value to only will be sticky (the last one usually). I'm afraid it isn't possible to make the entire column sticky, as currently only a sidebar block can contain multiple elements (widgets) and make them all be sticky. Codetipi

    Hey Leemarr, Ah you're 100% right, captions should be showing there. It's already been fixed and images with normal captions will automatically show them in those galleries from the next theme update. Thanks for reporting! Codetipi
