WordPress Theme Giveaway: Magazine3 Gameup (Update: 07.16.11 – Winners Announced)

Hey there.  Is your blog in need of a fresh, new look?  Do you want to spice up your  website and use a more professional looking theme as opposed to a standard blog theme?  Then look no further, Dragonblogger.com has teamed up with our good friends at Magazine3 to provide you with this great opportunity to score a GameUp WordPress theme license ($49 value) for free!

The GameUp theme is tailor made for a gaming community blog or site.  Many of the perks that come with this theme will keep your readers and community members engaged.  The news ticker, for example, is great for covering the latest news and conveying it quickly to your readers.  Especially when you don’t have the time to write up a post.  A great example of it’s awesome use would be to cover a convention such as E3.  With news flying around so quickly, it’s unrealistic to have posts done about everything as they happen, but with the news ticker, you can convey the news quickly and elaborate on a blog post later.    The next big convention is ComiCon.  Wouldn’t it be great to have this theme up by then?  Here are few more features that come with this wordpress theme:

  • Compatible with WP 3.0.2+
  • Widgetized Sidebar
  • Featured Gallery Section
  • Threaded Comments
  • Two Side Bars
  • Qjuery & TimThumb
  • And many more…

And setting it up is a breeze.  With the easy drag and drop edit menu, you can quickly customize the layout to fit your needs and you never have to worry about cropping your images to the correct size.  The GameUp theme will automatically crop your images using the TimThumb script to assure that your site will look it’s best with crisp images.  If you are still not convinced that this may be a theme for you, head on over to the GameUp theme page and view the demo to see it in action.  Once you do, you’ll want to enter this giveaway!
