Meet Viral, Our New & Modern Magazine Theme

Customize the theme through the Theme Designer

When we designed Viral, we wanted it to reflect Blogger and its simplicity, and journalism that puts content first, not a complicated looking news theme that look so radical. Viral is in between; modern enough to be a news site but still flexible enough to be a personal blog for you to write a story.

As a Magazine theme, Viral comes with many features and customization options to make you stand out from the crowd, of course without making it hard to use. Here's the breakdown:

1. Flexible Featured Post and Popular Post widgets

Both are based on the native Blogger's widget that we customized to accommodate the content area. By this, you can move the widget to any area on the Layout that supports an unlimited number of widget. For example, moving the Popular Post widget to the "Hero" area, below the navigation, will automatically transform its look to Slideshow (Carousel).

Drag and drop the Popular Post gadget to any location

2. Dedicated Area for AdSense

Synchronizing AdSense can be easily done from your blog's dashboard without the need to understand code. For that, Viral provides 3 special areas for AdSense that had been selected well to get the perfect balance between AdSense and content. This means you can generate revenue from advertisements without downgrading reader's experience – and the most important thing is, without violating Google's ad placement policies.

3. Integrated Contact Form

Viral comes with an integrated contact form that can be easily added by simply creating a "Page". That's how you add a contact form like a boss.

4. Article summary and Video format

Viral allows you to add a short description for each article that can be used to briefly introduce and describe a topic before going to the main article. This feature can also be used as a meta description for Google to crawl.

Viral automatically generates YouTube video thumbnail in the best possible quality along with responsive video frame that can adapt to the size of the screen. Publishing a post under "video" will automatically add the YouTube icon next to the thumbnail. Adding video to an article has never been this easy!

5. Custom Social Sharing Buttons

The sharing buttons are placed just after the headline and at the end of the post to ensure that reader won't miss the moment to share.

6. Smart customization Options

Using the handy color and font pickers in the Theme Designer, you can tweak the look of your site in real-time — all changes will reflect live in front of you. Now that's a feature!


Viral is based on the new framework that brings all the must-have features. This includes the new comment form UI, ability to show/hide gadget on the Layout page, responsive design, retina ready, and many more.

Viral Blogger theme isn't exclusively made for viral site only. Whether you're into fashion, food, automotive, sport or even blog, Viral can adapt perfectly.
