There aren’t a lot of Divi child themes that are designed specifically for magazines, but there are a lot of child themes that are great for building magazines. Blogs are similar to magazines in that they produce content and present it with the most recent content first. The differences between blogs and magazines are sometimes blurred.

Where magazines differ the most is the articles are usually placed under categories on the homepage. This can easily be accomplished with Divi blog modules by displaying multiple modules selecting a single category for each one. Sometimes they just have the category labeled so it’s easy to see. This makes their designs either interchangeable or easy to modify for use with either type of website.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at 12 Divi child themes that can be used to create amazing online magazines.
