If you had any doubts that WordPress can’t be used as News or Magazine site then we cleared those in our last post and if you have any doubt that it can’t be run as a Photo blog, then we are going to clear that right now! In this post we want to feature some of the best Photo Blogging based themes for WordPress.
Just chose the theme which you want to use and go through their detailed instructions on how exactly you can use WordPress as a photo blog with that particular theme. Most of the themes prefer to use YAPB (Yet another photo blog) plugin and it’s best if you can already download that and install it on your WordPress.
Themes which can help you use WordPress as Photo blog:
1. Grain : It’s a fixed width photoblog theme and depends on the YAPB plugin. It works as a classic photoblog and doesn’t display the several images at one time. If you are interested in looking at how Grain looks like, then the photoblog of the developer is one nice example.
2. Photoblog themes by Taly : Taly has released 5 wonderful photo blog themes and are really wonderful to look at too. All the five themes are just awesome and I’m sure you’ll just fall in love with each of them.
3. Nishita : A theme dedicated to Brajeshwar’s Niece. With simple navigation controls and classic photoblog layout, it becomes the definite choice for simplistic theme lovers.
4. Monotone : Another gem from the Automattic (team behind WordPress). This photo blog theme automatically makes the background of the the theme to match the major color of the theme and thus gives a monotone look. So, every page may look different from another and that’s the beauty of this theme.
My blogging buddy, Ram has compiled a list of few WordPress themes which can help you run a Photo blog through WordPress.
