Setting up a page to use a magazine template is easy. You can use the same page template as many times as you want and display posts from different categories on each page.
Some templates will display posts from a single category and others will display posts from a number of different categories.
Each page template has a meta box that will appear below the main WYSIWYG editor panel. This meta box allows you to set up all of the options for the selected page template.
The links below (when finished) will show you how to setup several of the different magazine page templates.
