I downloaded Magazine Basic because it had a good rating but quickly found that due to some sloppy coding, I had to fix a problem with an extra </div> in "index.php," the right sidebar ended up in the footer.
The solution to the problem was offered by another user of the teme on the support forum. The developer never weighed in.
My client then discovered another bug in the theme. If the theme options are set to a right and left sidebar, the right sidebar again ends up in the footer if there are more than 3 posts on the blog page. I reported this to the theme developer over a week ago and have yet to hear back. I may end up having to find another theme for my client.
Update: August 7, 2015: theme developer updated the theme on August 7. Update broke the child theme. Again, the theme developer is missing from the support forum.
