How to create a magazine like front page

When you have activated MH Magazine lite WordPress Theme for the first time, the theme will display your articles in default blog style. To display the content on your front page in magazine style, you’ll need to create a static front page first and assign the built-in “Homepage” template to your front page. For more information, please have a look at this tutorial: How to set a Static Front Page in WordPress.

After you have set a static front page for your website and have assigned the “Homepage” template to your static front page, you can navigate to “Appearance => Widgets” in your WordPress dashboard and place widgets like “MH Slider” and “MH Custom Posts” into the widget locations “Home 1″ until “Home 5″ on your front page (see screenshot). In case you need more help on how to use widgets in WordPress, please read this tutorial: WordPress Widgets.
