Antenna by DesignOrbital is a cool elegant WordPress theme suitable for Magazine and blogs. The structure of Antenna WordPress Theme is different than other magazine themes in-terms of homepage design. The theme will not highlight big range of categories on homepage that just look like junky or useless page. But instead designers have used update section to display all new posts on homepage just like a blog. Moreover you can highlight category in two ways, either by placing them on the menu-bar drop-down list and with sidebar category widgets. The color shades are not used every where to maintain clean look of the website which may further improve readability.

The news posting theme uses excerpt mode to highlight newly released blog articles on the homepage and archive pages. But still it gives you freedom to select taxonomies to display on featured mode, words to include in excerpt box, size of thumbnail etc. Once you specify your preference it will take care of all the specified settings and you will feel much more convenient with auto thumbnail producer. Antenna will use first image of every post to create thumbnails, thanks to the DesignOrbital members to provide such an excellent feature. All features are powerful enough to atomizing most of the process, especially to lower the burden of bloggers.
Design & Navigation of Antenna WordPress Theme :
The thumbnail of every latest featured post will be shifted on the left side and information on the right side, with enough space to maintain clean design. A category post carousel included in the theme package, it can be useful to highlight posts from the best / popular category. The thumbnail will display little big featured image on the blog sidebar, this way you can target more attention from the visitors and make them visit those posts. “Load More” button is displayed to access more posts from the previous pages, this feature is a best replacement to the old “Pagination button”. Though it is optional, so if you still prefer to use buttons for pagination then you can change your preference from options page.
