BlogFolio WordPress Photography Theme

Today we have a new free WordPress theme that was designed for photographers who want to show off their work on a blog-style site. The theme shows thumbnails on the home page for a portfolio style approach, but the thumbnails represent blog posts so you can share text along with your photos.

Theme features include:

  • 3 color schemes
  • Upload your own logo, or just display the site title in text
  • Widget-ready sidebar

BlogFolio is an ideal choice for photographers who want to maintain a blog to put their work on display, and for those who want a free theme with some customizable options. You’ll have your choice of color schemes, a customizable navigation menu, and the option to upload your own logo.

    Hi Steven

    I’m using IE 10 – It would seem to be the compatability option in IE. If enabled the menu is fine, however when compatability is de-selected the menu drops behind the photo box.

    The firefox issue is OK now.

    It’s not a major issue, I’m guessing it mainly affects older versions of IE .

    Very pleased with theme, keep up the excellent work

    What a lovely theme, thank you for providing it for free.
    Can i ask a quick question.

    In IE when i click the photo menu the category list shows only the top category, the others seem to drop behind the image.
    Also in firefox the first two categories line up next to each other rather than above/below.

    Could you give me some direction on how to fix these please.
    Thank you

    Is something wrong with the PDF download link? Can’t seem to get it to work properly.

    • Steven Snell, July 23, 2012

      Hi Ell,
      There doesn’t seem to be a problem with the PDF download. What problem are you having? Are you getting an error message when you click the download link (if so, what message)? Or are you not able to open the PDF after it is downloaded?
