Nice first release.
I like the commenting, ratings, eye pleasing layout.
I read this article - http://magazine.joomla.org/topics/item/ ... ets-hacked
and I felt it was helpful.
Some things I didn't understand.
Only 18 articles and they were spread over 3 pages ? Seems like someone is overpaginating here.
I myself would put all 18 on one page.
Ten per page seems a minimum.
I'd certainly expect that all articles on pages 2 and 3 will receive alot less traffic.
Are all the good articles on page 1 ? Will authors rotate from a page 1 article to a page 2 or 3 article ?
I think you should put all articles on one page.
I felt the summaries were a bit short. It was hard to get a feel for what the article was about by the 20 word mark. It was also not enough to entice me to read it.
I find Engadget does a good job here.http://www.engadget.com/#latest
I think the Homepage needs a permanent link to the Magazine. If there is one, I didn't see it.
I also found the font size, like the entire Joomla website ... too small.
The magazine left me wanting a Blog, not a magazine.
