Everything in Zeen was completely built from the ground up.
This approach allowed the theme to embrace the very latest
cutting-edge technologies around, undergo deep design explorations
and re-think the established way of doing things. This has resulted
in Zeen having incredible performance and is very likely the
fastest theme of its kind ever made. Some Zeen demos score a
perfect 100/100 score on GTMetrix (links to reports are further
down) and the rest are all mid to high 90s. The theme is
impressively flexible, intuitive and customisable. Best of all, you
can create almost any magazine layout you can imagine without
touching a single line of code. Users can become pro users in no
time and it is so moldable that even savvy visitors will not be
able to tell what theme is being used by simply looking at the site
Zeen was designed by an experienced designer, coded by an
experienced coder, optimised by an experienced SEO specialist and
all to create an unbeatable product that can help you take your
site to a whole new level. Codetipi also provides friendly and
helpful customer support. No wonder Codetipi is the #1 rated Power
Elite author on Themeforest.
Zeen for Magazines, Blogs, Newspapers or Review sites
groundbreaking design, flexibility and small learning curve make it
perfect for sites of any size, from the biggest to the smallest.
Zeen is the ideal WordPress theme for any magazine, blog,
newspaper, personal diary, photo-stories, affiliate sites and even
full-blown WooCommerce shops.
The Zeen demos can all be imported with one click and provides
inspiration on how the theme could potentially be used on a site of
any niche, including technology, food, videogames, minimal,
personal, lifestyle and fashion. Features from the demos can all be
mixed and matched too.
