See it at fashioncow.com. This is a big multi-looped magazine theme. It is all custom WordPress, with a lot of plugins. The owner of the site, prolific fashion blogger Tanya Wilson, wanted a site that would compete with high end fashion sites like Fabsugar.com, and Elle.com.
The multiple loops were satisfying to code. No post appears twice on the page, and the blogger has a lot of control over what posts appear where. There are two sliders, one on top, labeled Today’s Obsessions, and one on the bottom called Designer’s Lookbook. There are many image sizes and formats, to give the site some variety. A custom function allows the Section Headers, like “Today’s Obsessions” to be changed in the Admin.
The whole theme runs on just three templates: a front page, a single-post, and an archive template. These three files all share the same header and footer.
