Today, we would like to give you an update on the current development and our plans for MH Themes in general, and especially our popular MH Magazine Theme.

MH Themes has been around for 11 years now, and over the years we have accumulated a large portfolio of magazine WordPress themes. Our themes are used by thousands of customers on various magazine and news websites.

MH Magazine and MH Newsdesk have become your two favorites. Therefore, after careful consideration, we have decided to discontinue the development of the remaining 8 themes. On the one hand, these themes were only sold a few times a year, on the other hand, we wanted to concentrate our resources on the two most used themes.

Tip: Since we have been asked several times whether these themes can still be downloaded, we have created a small bundle where you can buy all 8 themes together for a small one-time fee. You can then use them indefinitely and on as many websites as you like. You can find the Legacy Themes Bundle here.

We’re rebuilding MH Magazine from scratch!

Both of the themes mentioned earlier will continue to be maintained and receive updates. However, they were also created many years ago and the source code is no longer up-to-date. That’s why we made the decision to rebuild the MH Magazine theme from scratch.

A new code base not only allows us to make fixes more easily and quickly. It also gives us the opportunity to add new features and meet customer requirements even better. Due to the entirely different code, the new theme will not be available as an update to the existing themes, but as a separate new theme. Existing customers of MH Newsdesk & MH Magazine will have access to the new theme.

The rebuild of MH Magazine is currently in the 1st internal phase, where our development team is gathering feedback from project management and design.

Assuming everything works as planned, we will be able to release the new theme this (late) summer.

Do you want to test the new theme in advance?

We would also like to involve existing MH Themes customers in the development and are therefore planning a total of 2 feedback loops with you. The idea behind this is that we will provide you with access to a demo instance in advance, you can take a look at the new theme and then give us feedback, which we will then pass on directly to the theme development team.

Are you interested in taking a look at the new theme in advance and helping us with the development? If so, you are welcome to complete the form below, and we will invite you to the first test phase in good time. You are also welcome to send us your wishes for the new theme.

We hope that you have now been given a brief insight behind the scenes, and we can assure you that we are actively working on further development. We are also looking forward to presenting the new Magazine WordPress theme to you.

Until then, feel free to contact us at any time if you need support with our current WordPress Magazine Themes.
