Download “Gallery”: A Free WordPress Theme


Just recently we asked1 you to let us know what theme you would like us to release next. Among numerous comments we found many request for a gallery-theme that could be particularly useful for portfolios and showcases. At the very same time Christopher Wallace32 has been designing an advanced gallery-WordPress-theme for the design community and Smashing Magazine’s audience. And today finally we are proud to release it – for free, of course.

Gallery WordPress Theme

Gallery is a beautiful, free, gallery-style Thematic child theme for WordPress, designed by Christopher Wallace32 especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers. It is extremely flexible and can be used as a starting point for design galleries and portfolios.


This theme can be seen in action on MixCSS.com5, which is being launched as a high-end design gallery that showcases the true power of the Gallery theme. You can subscribe to the RSS feed6 or check out the live site7, which acts as a demo for the Gallery theme.

As always, the template is completely free and may be used for any private or commercial project without any restrictions whatsoever.


Gallery is packed with loads of cool features like a jQuery slide hover effect on thumbnails, lazyloading for thumbnails (great if using a lot of thumbnails on one page), built-in social media links for each gallery item and seamless integration with the following plugins: WP-PostRatings9, BuySellAds plugin10, and Contact Form 711.


If you'd like an endless wall of thumbnails, LazyLoad allows you to show as many posts on the homepage as you'd like, allowing your users to scroll endlessly down the page without having to load hundreds of images right away. This effect mimics "endless scroll."


Gallery also supports WordPress 2.7 threaded comments for an elegant commenting experience.


Social media links allow you to save each gallery item to Delicious.com15 or post a link to the gallery page in your twitter feed. Social media icons provided by Rogie King16.



  • WordPress 2.7 compatible
  • Built on the Thematic framework
  • jQuery hover effects
  • 'Save to Delicious' link
  • 'Tweet This' link
  • Flexible footer widget area
  • WP-PostRatings integration
  • Contact Form 7 integration
  • BuySellAds plugin integration


To use the Gallery Theme, you will need to follow these installation instructions:

  1. Download the latest version18 of Thematic.
  2. Download the latest version19 of the Gallery WordPress theme.
  3. Unzip and upload both themes to your "wp-content/themes/" directory.
  4. In WordPress, go to "Appearance > Themes" and activate the "Gallery" theme.
  5. To change the number of items displayed on the home page, go to
    "Settings > Reading" and change "Blog pages show at most" to 28 (4
    rows) or 35 (5 rows) or more for the LazyLoad plugin to work its magic. LazyLoader will automatically delay loading of thumbnails that are out of the user's view.

Adding Gallery Items

To use the default options for the Gallery Theme, here are instructions for creating gallery entries:

  1. Create a thumbnail for each entry sized 125×125
  2. Create a full-sized image for each entry sized 500×375
  3. Upload both images to /wp-content/uploads or use the image uploader in WordPress to upload the images to the same folder
  4. Next, create a custom field called "thumbnail" and enter the
    location of the thumbnail file, for example
  5. You will need to create another custom field called "full-image" and enter the location of the full-size image in that field.
  6. You may also enter custom fields for "web-url" and "designer" if you want to add additional information to each entry.

Setting Up Star Ratings

  1. Install the WP-Post Ratings plugin20 from Activate both the plugin and the widgets.
  2. To switch the type of images to transparent .PNGs, open wp-content/plugins/wp-postratings/wp-postratings.php in a text editor and change the following lines (should be near the top of the document):

    ### Define Image Extension
    define('RATINGS_IMG_EXT', 'gif');
    //define('RATINGS_IMG_EXT', 'png');

    to match this:

    ### Define Image Extension
    //define('RATINGS_IMG_EXT', 'gif');
    define('RATINGS_IMG_EXT', 'png');

  3. Then upload that file back into the plugins folder.
  4. In your WordPress admin panel, click the Ratings > Options link on the left sidebar.
  5. The transparent .PNG stars should be selected by default.
  6. Under 'Ratings AJAX Style' change 'Show Loading Image With Text' to 'No' and 'Show Fading In And Fading Out Of Ratings' to 'No.'
  7. Click 'Save Changes.'
  8. Now click the 'Ratings Templates' on the left sidebar.
  9. Replace the text in the 'Ratings Vote Text' box with the following code:


  10. Replace the text in the 'Ratings Voted Text' with the following code:


  11. Click the 'Save' button.
  12. You should now see your star ratings show on the gallery single pages next to the title of the gallery item.

Adding Widgets to the Footer

  1. Make sure you activated the WP-Post Ratings widgets when you activated the plugin.
  2. In your WordPress Admin, click Widgets on the sidebar.
  3. From the drop-down box under 'Current Widgets' select '1st Subsidiary Aside' and click 'Show.'
  4. Drag the widgets you'd like to see shown in this area from left to right (Highest Rated, Most Rated, Recent Comments, etc.)
  5. Click 'Save.'
  6. You should now see your widgets in the footer.

Download the theme for free!


We express sincere gratitude to Christoper Wallace for his truly impressive work. Please let us know in the comments if this release meets your expectations. And if not, please let us know what we could improve in the upcoming releases!

    Brilliant! A few friends were looking for a WordPress based gallery and this theme might just be the answer; or at least the start to one. Think I’ll have to play with this later :)

    Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you so much!!! Really what I needed.

    so clean, simple and elegant. thanks!

    the best theme ever released on SM

    wow…it’s amazing for me, i hope i can make template like this.. ^_^

  13. 13

    Nice. Too bad it doesn’t have good color contrast in most places.

  14. 14

    a bit too black…. but very very nice theme! :)

  15. 15

    Incomplete theme – without notes on installation – crashes as such – Waste of time— :(

  16. 16

    Would be nice if the step by step installation instructions of the section “Adding Gallery Items” were more detailed as not everyone knows how to do some of them – me included :-)

  17. 17

    This comes very close to my own fan-tas-tic gallery theme… ;) I have to hurry up, I guess.

    A very nice one…kudos!

  18. 18

    Thanks – this is a wonderful new theme. Looks like something that should be included in the previous post on Ultimate Guide To Using WordPress For A Portfolio. Loke someone else said, I just wish I had more in my own portfolio to fill something like this up!

    Beautiful work!

    Woop woop! THIS is usefull! Thanks!

  20. 20

    Wow, great job guys. And Free! even better. Thanks for sharing.

  21. 21

    Hey great themes but i have a question… how do you change the title of the widgets for images? or instead of using the widget to manually add the codes? If someone can answer me this i’ll be grateful for the rest of my live!

    it has some interesting elements, and like most themes, you need to know your way around wordpress, css, php, etc to adapt it to your own needs – I really like the thumbnail roll-over effect.

  23. 23


  24. 24

    Nice theme, i love this theme ;)

  25. 25

    Wow, that’s a smashing theme for gallery!

  26. 26

    it’s amazing!

  27. 27

    Great! I am a bit surprised that there’s no automatic image sizing using timthumb or something, considering all excellent features. Adding Paypal or cart integrations would be icing on the cake.


  28. 28

    Nice theme;thanks:)

  29. 29

    Sweet, been looking for ideas to designing WordPress Gallery theme, and this one will definitely give me some more ideas.

    Thank you :)

    Awesome Awesome Awesome!
    Words escape me.

    Brilliant work!

    another nice post and a good learning resource, however instructions are not complete, things like how to add subit a gallery link and how to add a new gallery are missing.

  32. 32

    Wow amazing thanks guys. Just what I need.

  33. 33

    I´m trying to figure out whats the problem, when i extracted and uploaded the two themes named above, wordpress says gallery theme is broken, doesnt have template or stylesheet, any suggestions?

    Guys, thanks for all the positive feedback and the questions regarding this theme! Just to add one thing, I am not the creator of CSS Remix, just The theme was inspired by a variety of design galleries but my main goal was to provide a free theme that builds upon the simplicity of sites like Card Observer and CSS Remix.

    I understand the installation instructions may not be tailored specifically to beginning WordPress users and will continue to improve the instructions for those who may have questions. Updated instructions and tutorials for using other plugins with Gallery will be available periodically at, so be sure to watch for those.

    If you need help adding Custom Fields in WordPress, this tutorial explains exactly what they are and how to add them to your posts.

    Again, thanks for all the comments!

  35. 35

    Thank you soooooooooooooooo much!!!!!
    I am running a showcase page for japanese descendant community related pages
    and this theme is EXACTLY what I was looking for.
    The other CSS gallery themes were getting too old.

    Thank you and Arigato. :)

  36. 36

    Hi, is it working actually? I downloaded it, tried to install it on wordpress 2.7 but it doesn’t work. It says:

    this theme is incomplete

  37. 37

    @Misspiggy: Did you follow the installation instructions? Gallery is a Thematic child theme, so you need Thematic as well.

  39. 39

    Great Theme, thanks for sharing such a nice theme


  40. 40

    LOL, why do people not test with deactivated javascript? And even better with a running ad-blocker. This is what I see:

    But I have to admin, nice looking when viewing in a totaly “free” environment.

  41. 41

    I’m the owner of and I did not make this theme nor do I support it in anyway. I would’ve appreciated a link in the post, though: it obviously isn’t original ;)

  42. 42

    I’d just like to also confirm that this breaks terribly in IE6. Otherwise, it’s nice.

  43. 43

    @John Mills It doesn’t look anything like yours other than the fact that it has a matrix of thumbnails on the page. How different can a collection of thumbnails really be?

  44. 44

    @Artur Kim

    Yes you’re totally right! I’m so sorry for my stupid question. Tnx for helping me out.

  45. 45

    one hell of a theme. nice job guys!

  46. 46

    Just recently we asked you to let us know….

    In this the asked link is mismatched…..
    so change it! :)

    linklerde sorun var galiba :S

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful gift.

    @Chris Wallace

    Thanks for mentioning as a main source of inspiration in your comment, but a link in the post would have been really awesome! :)

    WooooOt!! Thanks!

    Where is the Joomla theme? Joomla is a Open Source software that can do much more than WP.

    You’re welcome!

    May 4, 2009 1:31 pm

    looks pretty good, consider using timthumb to resize the images dynamically next time, also instead of using custom fields why not create a custom write panel –, those two things would make it way easier for the user managing the site

  54. 54

    It would be great if dashboard based tools for setting up thumbnail and full-image were part of this – or even a link to picnik or some other web based editing tool. Ideally, you could “press this” and edit the image (and generate the thumbnail) without leaving WordPress.

    Not bad at all though!

  55. 55

    I can not for the life of me get this them to work, and yes, I did download thematic along with it…

    May 4, 2009 3:21 pm

    @Chris Robinson Thanks for the suggestions, there will be future updates to the theme, so those may be added at some point.

    There are a few bugs that have been reported and will be fixed as well in upcoming releases.

  58. 58

    Great! But it doesn’t run with IE6… is there any solution? A Bug?
    Thank you very much!

  59. 59

    If I want to change the large image size, is that just done in the stylesheet under #content? Alot of my images are taller than wide. Great theme. Haven’t had any issues but I used it on a clean install of WP.

  60. 60

    Great theme thanks,

    Just uploaded this theme and WordPress says that the theme is missing a stylesheet and a template. Poop!

  63. 63

    I’m getting exactly the same problem as Lindsey.

  64. 64

    Wow, this is a great looking theme. The interior page designs and attention to detail are very impressive!

  65. 65

    Fantastic! This is everything I didn’t know I was looking for! Thank you for this totally gorgeous theme.

  66. 66

    Awesome, thanks!

  67. 67

    hi, the theme dont work for me, i miss “thematic” subfolder.
    Any idea ?

  68. 68


    This is a great theme. A couple of suggestions it would have been great if you had of used say tim thumb and then told the wordpress system to get the first image of each post.

    This way you only need otuplaod the images once and makes it easy to use.

  69. 69

    just the theme i’ve been looking for for weeks. thanks!

  70. 70

    Awesome. perfect for my portfolio

    May 4, 2009 10:51 pm

    Very nice of you to share this…. Thanks

  72. 72

    I know IE 6.0 isn’t the most popular browser but many companies still use it on their corporate machines. Not mention regular Internet users.
    This theme doesn’t look great in IE 6.0 – top navigation displays as a vertical list right aligned. And between each and every row of thumbs there is an empty space you can insert at least two extra rows in.
    Honestly I would feel embarrassed releasing product that wasn’t tested in IE 6.0.

  73. 73

    pagenavi would increase the usability of this template :)

  74. 74

    tnx for the theme

    i really like it,

    beautiful theme!

  77. 77

    hi, i have problem with adding gallery items
    is the custom field “full-image” correct ?? i cant get it working
    i had no problems with the thumbnail :]

  78. 78

    Al post are showing as NEW, does someone know how to change this?

  79. 79

    The theme looks really good, but misses a lot of points:
    – Adding content could be way easier (see comments above)
    – CSS could be more clean, also has some bugs (“new” flag not correctly showing in the first line)
    – On detail-pages the “next” and “prev” links break when the title is too long
    – I’ve never seen a theme that needed to download and add another theme to work, which is kind of strange

    There’s a lot of stuff to do yourself when you want to make it work good which could have been avoided with proper testing. Maybe you guys will release an update?

  80. 80

    Michael Murphy

    May 5, 2009 4:03 am

    I cant believe so many people are knocking this

    Its a first release, there bound to be bugs here and there etc

    The guys worked on this, put in his time and effort and gave it to us for free, should be grateful instead of putting the boot in…

    Great theme, thanks for sharing.

  84. 84

    Hi, Thanx for the sharing.. i really loves it, but can i ask something..
    why the custom field for “designer” isn’t working? what did i miss?

    Thanx before…

  85. 85

    Love this…

  86. 86

    Nice looking theme and as always thanks for sharing. However, I was expecting SM to be more selective, rather than releasing just another gallery or magazine theme.

  87. 87

    This is really good stuff. Was struggling with a custom WP installation to do the same thing. Will use this instead!

  88. 88

    For everyone interested, I will be releasing a new version with custom write panels, full IE6 compatibility, and bugfixes galore (the ‘new’ icons are fixed in the update, among other fixes). I will be testing the changes this evening and allow some people who have already implemented the theme to test it out before I release the new version. You can subscribe to all future theme updates here.

  89. 89

    Is anyone else having problems with full-image custom field as it wont show the full image? :(

  90. 90

    Do you have problem with instalation (this theme is incomplete) with missing Thematic? Just download and copy to wp-content/themes, then you see this great theme in admin.

  91. 91

    Chris Wallace

    May 5, 2009 3:36 pm

    Make sure you upload BOTH themes before you try to activate the Gallery theme.

  92. 92

    @Lindsey (Comment #62) — I was having the same problem with WordPress saying that the theme is missing a stylesheet and a template. This was on top of a fresh install of WP 2.7.1 made by my webhost (Dreamhost). But DH seems to have some things “tweaked” in their installation. So, I removed their installation and did one fresh from the download of WP 2.7.1 straight from After that WP recognized Gallery and Thematic properly. :)

  93. 93

    Cool! Thx. Any chance you’d release a white version of the theme?

  94. 94

    May 5, 2009 9:24 pm

    Just to let everyone know, I’ve released version 1.1 of the Gallery theme version 1.1 of the Gallery theme. If you were experiencing problems loading new gallery items, having trouble with IE6, or saw some issues with the ‘NEW’ icons, this release fixes/helps all of those issues.

    @Chris Wallace

    I just switched to version 1.1 but the ‘New’ icons still are cut off on top … In my admin it says I have theme 1.1 so …

    I also can’t find this to make the ratings work:
    “In your WordPress admin panel, click the Ratings > Options link on the left sidebar.”

    I just installed WP on my hosting and it’s the first time I am working with it.

    Hi guys

    Uploaded new version, working perfect other than 2 things.

    Parent category needs to be able to have more than 1 child category


    for some reason all my thumbnails have the red new image above them instead of just the first 3, anyone know how i fix this?


  104. 104

    Cool theme

  105. 105

    Excellent theme. Thank you so much. Downloaded, copied it to my webspace, activated it. Running. No idea why some have problems here.

    Anyway… is there a way to randomize the order of the thumbnails on the main page? So when I reload the page it’s in a different order?

    PS: The custom field name needs to be named designed-by and not designer. Well it can be designer, if one changes the source :D

    Thank you for this great theme!

  106. 106

    How to remove – Search, Pages, Categories Archives in my About pages ?

  107. 107

    How to take away from the left side Search, Pages, Categories, Archives in the new pages in the site, which are maded by me? Like Submit, About etc. Those menus are in every of them.

  108. 108

    The people that are getting the stylesheet errors arent uploading the correct folder heirachy

    Download “Gallery”
    Unzip it and then you have a folder called “Gallery 1.1.1″
    Inside that folder is a folder called “Gallery” this the folder you need to upload to wp-content/themes

    Same goes for thematic

    I had this issue and realised what i had done.

    For people having problems with full-image

    make sure your value in custom field has the first / at the beginning, i also had this issue

    so it should be:


    rather than


    Hope this helps!

  109. 109

    I am very new to wordpress and I am no programmer so …

    When you klick on a thumbnail you go a the detailed page with the big picture. Is it possible to insert more than one picture? In that way you can show like several pages of a website or whatever you like to show …

  110. 110

    My thumbnail is not appearing.
    Appears as broken image.
    Somebody help me?


    Thank you!

  111. 111

    I’m an instant fan! I’ve set the theme up on a fractal art website and it rocks. Just one BIG problem: the “full-image” custom field doesn’t give me anything to display. Instead of the empty frame, I get a tiny black square in the top LH corner. HELLLLLPPPP!!!

    And the installation instructions are great – can’t think why anyone’s moaning!

    I’m getting this crazy message at the top of each post after you click on a thumbnail.

    “Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /nfs/c03/h03/mnt/52869/domains/ on line 7

    Warning: file_get_contents( [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /nfs/c03/h03/mnt/52869/domains/ on line 7″

    What does that mean? What do I need to do to fix it?

    • 113

      because of your hosting server….something in theyr settings…

      default allow_url_fopen is OFF…must be set to ON

      hope that helps

  113. 114

    I’m sorry but it is completely effing ridiculous for SMASHING MAG AND CHRIS WALLACE to put out a theme with virtually no instructions. Sure, i got mine working, but i shouldn’t have to look at the coding to figure simple things out like how to get the “Designed by” function to work (why do the instructions say to put in “designer”? it doesn’t work… are yall on drugs or was it just a late night when posting this???)!!!!!

    THIS EFFORT IS SUB PAR! It’s a great looking theme THAT DOESN’T WORK OUT OF THE BOX! Common, it’s like having a hot girlfriend with NO VAG! SAME DIFFERENCE!! NO ONE WANTS THAT!!!


  114. 115

    Excellent!!!! Love it!!!! It would have been a little bit more easier if the instruction were more explicit. But anyways thank you very much for the contribution. I am already using it and it works perfectly, but i was wondering if i can have a regular blog inside mi page.??

  115. 116


    Your thumbnail points to×125.jpg. Seems the image is not existing or doesn’t have enough rights? (chmod)

    I got detailed instructions via RSS feed (well I think it was detailed enough). The thing about the custom field “designer”… well.. was probably (what else???) just a mistake.

    I mean why freakin out… it’s a free theme and no one urges you to use it. If you (or someone else) don’t like it… don’t use it. If it’s too difficult, the person should read some WP books and check the theme source files. Takes 2 minutes to check them… :-)

    I placed gallery file in themes folder.. but im getting below error

    “The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

    Name Description
    Gallery, a Thematic child theme Template is missing. “

  118. 119


    Did you upload both theme files before activating the gallery theme?

  119. 120


    The path of the image was wrong.

    Thanks for your hard work on this and making free for all, this is very well made.

  121. 122

    Is there an FAQ for the theme? I am just getting annoyed that the jQuery hover effects are not working and I have a feeling it’s due to the last theme I had that was super annoying. Everything else is fine but that…… *shrug

  122. 123

    Thank you so much for this theme. I have a bunch of ideas what to do with this gallery template.

  123. 124

    Thank you so much for this amazing wordpress theme. It inspired me to build a gallery of Twitter Applications named TweeterApps. I agree it was a bit hard to get everything working correct (plugins, theme, lack of information about Thematic. But if you use WordPress you should be able to figure it out. I have been using WordPress since 2006 and it just keepts getting easier and easier.

    Thanks again! Really like this theme and integration (once it works)!

  124. 125

    Totally not freaking out. Im just saying that from a business perspective, I know Smashing Mag and Chris are both better than putting out halfway finished products. Maybe everyone else is all like, oh so what the new buttons are chopped off… its free.. well guess what? thats not my style. I love smashing mag and i come back because they consistently put out great material, great content, and they listen to their visitors. Im a business owner. I would have never put this theme out until it was fully tested and ready to go. If i was running smashing mag, i would be pissed off that this theme was released with instructions for functions that are WRONG. Of course mistakes do happen, but the theme is just not ready to be distributed, imho. So why put it out earlier than necessary??? Since when is that ok on a Top level design mag? Smashing Mag is better than that, and that is what makes them a great resource. I have a right to my opinion. some will agree and some wont. either way, this is my $.02 and im sure smashing mag and chris are both professional enough to take realistic constructive criticism.

    1. The theme is free of charge. Your complaints are like being given a free $100 bill with a rip in the corner. It’s still free, right? It still pays for stuff, right? Sure it does, so sit down and shut up.

    2. I have already released updates for the bugs that were reported. I’d say a two-day turnaround on bugfixes and premium-level enhancements is pretty good, even for a paid app or theme.

    3. It is extremely rude and unprofessional of such a big-time business owner such as yourself to rip on something that was offered free to the SM community. It reflects extremely poorly upon you as a person and a professional. You should learn to respect others and the effort they put into the things they love. Doing so will enable you to truly understand the core values every business should operate under.

      2. I have already released updates for the bugs that were reported. I’d say a two-day turnaround on bugfixes and premium-level enhancements is pretty good, even for a paid app or theme.


      I purchased the wordpress gallery PRO from Themeforest, but it doesn’t show more than 7 categories. Chris hasn’t responded in months, and this theme has now been removed from Themeforest.

      Don’t buy anything from Themeforest, you get no support whatsoever.

  126. 128

    Hey Chris – this is ace! Just uploaded it last night and it’s dead simple to use.

    There’s just one thing I’m confused about and I wonder if you can help. When I click on one of the categories I don’t get any of the thumbnails. Instead, the individual posts just seem to be all over the page.


    Is there a setting or widget somewhere that I haven’t activated?

    Thanks for your time.

  127. 129

    Very useful theme! Thank you, Chris and SM! Excellent work!

  128. 130

    Jon you are ridiculous!
    Great Theme guys, thank you for your efforts!!

  129. 131

    Love it. Great work Chris :) Will definitely keep an eye on the updates and will use it as soon as the opportunity arises!


  130. 132

    @Chris Wallace
    You are completely right. A two day turnaround is great. And honestly, rereading my first post, i think it sounded rude, and I apologize to you, smashing mag, and the SM community for that.

    Look man, I’m not ripping you, your product, or what you love. Don’t take offense. I am not bashing this product nor am i bashing you. I was only making one point: as a developer/designer/business person, you should always strive to put out the best material possible and not rush things. The main point i wanted to make was “why put the theme out highly unfinished or without a final “proofread”, especially when a site like Smashing Mag is presenting it? I don’t see why that would be a problem or taken as rude. its not about being a “big time” business owner. 1) i’m not “big time” by any means. 2) its about my right to give constructive criticism. 3) Without constructive criticism like mine, you wouldn’t rethink giving your next free theme a heavier “proofread” the way you will now that i have rattled things up. And thats really a good thing. So if smashing mag isnt going to push you to proof your themes, I’m going to do it. It will only help the design community in the long run. And besides, how can any of us improve our work if we don’t hear from real customers with real opinions? Please note that the last portions of both of my posts made valid points reflecting my opinion that you are a great designer and that smashing mag is a great resource. Cheesy as it sounds, i have an “accountability partner” who is a business colleague, and yes, we call each other out when we slack, even a little bit. And yes, at first it always sounds rude. But you know what, its constructive, it never ends on a bad note, and it always pushes us both to make better decisions moving forward. Of course, i could have worded my posts better, and your reply post made me realize that. So in that respect, i will definitely rethink the way i word future posts. But my basic message was that you are a great designer and are better than putting out an unfinished, and what seemed to be an untested product. Why? Because its true. You have incredible talent. No way around that. I cant make themes like that. So i definitely am not bashing you or ripping on your product, or passion in any way. I know it may have sounded rude, but in the long run, its the feedback like mine that pushes people like you to improve the products you offer. So if i came across flat-out rude in my posts, MY DEEPEST APOLOGIES. What i’m taking away from this experience, and from your reply post, is that i can get my point across in a more professional and respectful manner in the future. So thanks for bringing that to light.
    Take care Chris.

  131. 133

    Great theme!
    I have a tiny issue but it doesn’t affect the overall running of the theme. On the bottom left hand corner, there is “Error on page” which is alittle annoying.

    I need some advice, when you click on a gallery image and it goes to that post, I want to insert another gallery of 4 images.. Any possible tips please?

    Overall, I dont have any other problems with this, saved me thousands of £££! :D
    Thank youuu!

  132. 134

    i test in XAMPP with the last update version of this themes,but i just have some problums:the 125*125 and the big image doesn’t show ,the small one just shows the title of post,and the big image shows the links,neither show images

  133. 135

    hello i love the theme im using it but i have a problem , i want to change the {
    margin-top:-25; to make it more -35 but i cant find it anywhere .

  134. 136

    very nice skin!I like it very much!

  135. 137

    Cheers Smashing,

    Just installed it on my domain, onmediadesign dot co dot uk in about five minutes just to test it out and I have had no problems. I’m just a designer and have managed to set this up perfectly fine on what is provided above.

    Keep up the good work guys.

  136. 138

    Nice, thank you.

  137. 139

    WOW! This is the best wordpress theme. I have been waiting for this type of theme for one years. Thank you very much.

  138. 140

    Great looking theme! I noticed there is no love for portrait pictures. It scales portrait pictures to be 500×375 (vs 375×500). Is there a way to add a custom field or something to allow for both landscape & portrait pictures?



  139. 141

    after one year I found that perfect theme for my photoblog. thx!

  140. 142

    Thanks for this great theme
    but i have one problem,

    I am unable to add widgets to “1st Subsidiary Aside”
    every time i try to do that, it is installing the widget in “Primary Aside”

    also in my requirement there are different users who will be uploading the gallery, so is there a way that i can enable search / categorization according to person

  141. 143

    Yo, great theme for a portfolio but i have a little problem…

    What i have to change in the Style sheet to make the footer the same size as the header and on center??

  142. 144

    How do I show the sidebar on the right side?

  146. 148

    Thank You! Great Template

  147. 149

    Y doesnt the search work with your template??
    do i have to tweak anything??

  148. 150

    Amazing. Simply beautiful. Truly “Ninja-Tastic!”

    For those with issues trying to figure out the theme…seriously. These guys obviously put in a shit load of time developing this…it won’t kill you to take some time to work it out.

    Thanks again!!!!

  149. 151

    I’m having the same problem as Lucky 11 Studios (post 112), could it have something to do with my custom permalinks? Any ideas?

  150. 152

    love this design! i’ve been looking for something like this for my site for awhile. thank you! instructions were good and i got everything up right. the only question i have is how did mix css put up their advertisement above their posts? i would like to be able to do the same as well.

    thanks again!!!!

  151. 153

    nice theme gallery

  152. 154

    Hi Chris! F* nice template I LOVE I! :D

    Is it possible to insert flash, even maybe a flash movie, instead of the Full Image?

  153. 155


    Got a problem, when I go into Themes I get this error (Broken Error):

    Template is missing
    Stylesheet is missing.
    Gallery, a Thematic child theme Template is missing.

    Havent seen this error before, just downloaded today.

    Anyone know whats the matter, or how to fix it?


  154. 156

    For the “new” picture problem open functions.php . Line 75 you can see 3*86400 . This is the time for 3 days in seconds. You have just to modify this 3*86400 .

  155. 157

    If you need a custom logo designed for this theme for your site let me know. I can do this for you for $5. You can look at the sample at . You can email me to “vasanth at comegrab dot com”

  156. 158

    Great looking theme! I am a little disappointed about the appearance in IE6. I can’t stand IE6.

  157. 159

    Great theme – we added it our list of Premium Free Themes! With some imagination someone could turn this into a great looking site!

  158. 160

    does anybody know how to have the thumbnails created automatically seems like an unneccasarry to have to create both a thumbnail and featured picture. Other themes such as Idomagz gallery do the resizing automatically. If it would resize automatically this would be a great theme and I would use it across my network.

    Really like the theme, so much in fact, I created a version of this theme to work with the Hybrid framework, Galleria

  160. 162

    I’m having the same problem as Lucky 11 Studios (post 112) and Kate (post 149). Any ideas yet?

  161. 163

    Big thanks for a great theme!

    I have an issue with child categories, i cannot find a way to style the dropdown list?
    I would like a horizontal-styled list with my child categories under the navigation bar..

    Anyone have any clues how to solve this?

    Thanks again, really great work!

  162. 164

    Well i went through a few of the comments here and i have to say : It was pretty easy installation, doesn’t require any instructions i think. Why are you complaining ? And on top of it, if a client had comissioned this to me i would have charged him loads and we are getting it for free.

    And lastly whats the big deal even if you had to do a bit of look around at least you learnt something on your own. Just reminds me we are all becoming so lazy nowadays we expect everything to be spoonfed. Not trying to be personal or anything but lets just appreciate life.

  163. 165

    Installation and implementation has gone off without a hitch for me. I’ve already heavily customized it’s graphics and .css.
    I’m not a php expert by any means so my questions are these…

    1. Can I add the sidebar widgets to the posts page somehow? Either that or get rid of the sidebar completely. If so, how?
    2. I need post tags displayed in the post. (prepended with “Available in”) I found the code that should’ve done it and pasted it in but it didn’t work right for some reason.
    3. All of my posts have commenting disabled and it’d be nice to fill that space below the large image with the post’s text or additional images. Is this possible? If so, how?
    4. Is there a way to rearrange the order of the categories display in the header?

  164. 166

    …same problem as as Lucky 11 Studios (post 112) and Kate (post 149) and Jessica (post 160). Anyone know what’s goin on?

  165. 167

    help. i cant activate theme.

    there are missing files..

  166. 168

    nice templates :D

    I figured out my problem… for you others that had the same issue—just delete the line that has “ blah, blah, blah…” out of the code and then it works fine. No biggie. I love this design. Great work Chris!

    ONLY complaint I have is not being able to have portrait pictures on the posts. They all have to be horizontal. :-( Boo…. Not great for my rock posters.

  169. 171

    This is a great theme. I used it to make a gallery of sport logos. I update it daily so that’s why I called it sportlogoday and one square is one sport logo. Thank you for this! It’s really beautiful.

  170. 172

    this is a rocker ;D

    the gallery items displaying using custom field can be replaced by get the image plugin by Justin Tadlock”. Now everything is automated.

  176. 178

    Very nice! Except for one thing. If you use subcategories the menu doesn’t work that smoothly.

  177. 179

    Re. Jon (May 6th, 2009, 6:25 pm)

    I have never installed WordPress or worked with it in any way, shape or form and got this working beautifully in under an hour. Great work, Chris. This write-up is plenty detailed. Don’t be discouraged by what some type. What you’re doing is helping all of us.

  178. 180
  179. 181

    Chris thank you again for such an amazing theme!! It is much appreciated!! Can you or anyone help implement a paypal/shopping cart feature into this? Any input would be helpful, thanks!

  180. 182

    I am getting the error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_page_menu() in /home/a4066518/public_html/wp-content/themes/thematic/library/extensions/hooks-filters.php on line 62

    What is the likely cause of this?

  181. 183

    @lucky 11 Studios

    Thanks a bunch. I was wondering what was going on. Works now.

  182. 184

    This is exactly what i was looking for to show my portfolio (artworks & photos)

    but the thing is, all my stuff is hosted on FlickR.

    Is there any way to integrate this with a FlickR set ?

    It’s a nice theme.

    By the way, I love the texture you’ve used on the background. May I use it for my own project? It’s perfect for my portfolio I’m working on.

    @Jon (comment 113), I agree they do need to bundle decent instructions but it takes a lazy person to know another. Your grammar is terrible. ;-)

  184. 186

    I agree with Lucky 11 Studios:

    I’m getting this crazy message at the top of each post after you click on a thumbnail.
    “Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /nfs/c03/h03/mnt/52869/domains/ on line 7

    Warning: file_get_contents( [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /nfs/c03/h03/mnt/52869/domains/ on line 7″

    What does that mean? What do I need to do to fix it?

    • 187

      because of your hosting server….something in theyr settings…

      default allow_url_fopen is OFF…must be set to ON …hope it helps

      • 188

        i have the same problem but dosen’t really work :s how can i do? i’m lost

        I did it: put on the default value and i recreat but not still working …

  185. 189

    I like this theme!

  186. 190

    loving the theme!

    wondering if there is a way to prevent / remove the “new” icon/tag displaying on new posts?


  187. 191

    Great theme! Would you give us the ability to upload our own logo / banner image through an admin panel as Commune

  188. 192

    Great app, incredibly useful for me as a designer who spent a lot of precious time hand crafting my own gallery pages.

    The drop down sub-categories don’t seem to come out right though. They seem to end up behind the images. Is this something that you are looking at fixing?

    Anyhow, thanks again for your efforts

    Finally! This is what I have been looking for over the last 25 millions years.
    only one problem, is there a way you can have a standard blog page as well, that would be absolutely perfect for me.
    Thanks in advance.

  190. 194

    GREAT theme.

    How do I activate the Social Media links (Bookmark This/Tweet This) for the posts?

    Also, any ideas about replacing the image in the artwork-container with video?

  191. 195

    Chris, this is quite possibly one of the nicest themes that I’ve seen released for WordPress and the fact that it was made freely available only adds to its overall value. This is certainly worthy of a premium WordPress Theme label :).

    As for those complaining, it’s best to read all comments, instructions and try things out on your own — not just upload and expect everything to fall into place exactly the way you want it to. Get used to WordPress, read up a bit and then if you’re still having an issue, ask for help nicely instead of completely bashing the release and the author/designer.

    I know of premium wordpress themes that were released with a cost upwards of $50-$80 for a license and their initial release had so many issues, didn’t work in areas, failed validation and so forth, yet you didn’t see multiple comments about the poor quality. Customers instead asked the author/designer to fix them and waited patiently.

    Considering the first initial bug-fix release was in 2 days, I’d say that’s damn good support for a free release.

    Keep up the wonderful work, Chris. I’d love to personally see a few color variations if you have the time, perhaps even a different home page layout. Just a few suggestions when you have some free time to spare and feel like adding even more value to a product that already shines!

    – Michael

  192. 196

    I want to use this theme for my portfolio and I have it working fine. However, I’d like the images in the posts to link to the final original image. It would be nice if they opened in a lightbox style too, but I don’t know how to achieve this. Help would be appreciated.

  193. 197

    Fantastic theme! I have two requests:

    1) That the theme allow for horizontal drop-downs. Right now 2nd, 3rd, etc level categories drop down vertically behind the square boxes, there is space for them to just slide across just beneath the upper nav.

    2) The 500 x 375 image requirement distorts to match the design height and width of the main image. Is there a way to simply show the original image without it scaling and distorting when there is not a perfect crop/resize to 500 x 375?

    Thanks, and once again great work!!

  194. 198


    Open up /Gallery/single.php in your favorite text editor and delete

    width=”500″ height=”375″

    from lines 42 and 44.

    That should prevent images from being stretched to fit the 500×375 window.

    • 199

      I couldn’t find in Gallery/single.php;

      width=”500″ height=”375″

      (from lines 42 and 44.)

      I’m trying to set the size to iPhone size (320 x 480)
      Is it in Thematic theme or Gallery theme? Thanks in advance!

  195. 200


    Thanks! Greatly appreciated!

    Now, on to solve the horizontal slideouts… :)

  196. 201


    Thank you for the image info. It was worth looking through 194 comments to find your answer!

  197. 202

    how can i add the thumbnail information window box what i mean by that is the pop up information bar when your mouse scrolls over the thumbnail can anyone help me???

    love this theme :)


  198. 203

    Can anyone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me how to get the logo area (when clicked) to go to a different URL than the root? I know its something in the header, and then subsequently related to “thematic_header()” and functions.php

    I am totally stuck. Since I am using the gallery in a directory within my main site, I would like the logo at the top left to go back to the main site instead of to the grid gallery index.


  199. 204

    Just a pity. I was going to use it but it doesn’t work that well with the Internet Explorer.

  200. 205

    Beautiful theme, but unfortunately there are problems with viewing it in internet explorer 8!
    Are there any fixes for this?

  201. 206

    I need help! Theme works in all areas except on the front page. The image areas seem to be broken. Any help would be much appreciated! Here’s the site: Link

  204. 209

    I really request only one thing; the ability to change the dimensions of the thumbnails and large images. If this could be done, your theme would be PERFECT.

    Other than that, your theme is excellent and is a joy to use!


  205. 210

    @Brian – I’m with you on the portrait format issue – about half of my shots are taken in portrait and slicing off half an image to fit is a shame. Otherwise a superb theme.

    uhm… someone can tell me why in my home page the theme seems “broken” and in the single categories pages the theme works well? o_O

    ty in advance (and thanks to SM and chris wallace)

  211. 216

    Whoa, so much responses. Hope nobody asked such stuff, i will ask now..
    Can you make something like a GUI for importing thumbnauls? It wold be nice. I saw some Woo – Themes are using GUIs for custom fields, so you don’t need to edit the custom fields yourself. Would be a nice feature…

  212. 217

    I have been using this theme for a while (and love it) but once I upgraded to the next version when you hover over the thumbs they no longer slide up to show the title.

    Any help on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

    I am currently using Child Theme 1.1.1.

    Thank you in advance

  213. 218

    I have installed it and works great! Thanks!

    One question though. It only shows 10 images “post” thumbnail and creates another page. Is there any way I can change the amount of post thumbnails on a page, or is this something I am missing completely?


  214. 220

    can this be used on wordpress free? i need help bout that. ty

  215. 221

    Will this theme work for latest wordpress 2.8.1?!
    If so then I will use it!

    Thanks for a nice theme and for any answer to my question!

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to add WP “pages” onto the bar next to “posts” so that it’s more prominent on the overall site (as opposed to the top right). Can anybody help me? I’m new to this and would love you forever and ever.

  227. 233

    How do you make the thumbnails bigger than 125×125?

    i am having a tough time figuring this out. it’s a great theme, but 125×125 thumbnails won’t work for me, they need to be bigger for what i am doing.

  228. 234

    would have been so much better (and usable) if this was a stand alone theme. The fact its a sub-theme makes it useless. I would love to see someone make this a stand alone theme.

  229. 235

    Hi Chris,
    I’m interested in whether its possible to add adverts/html into my header, such as a skype button. There are plugins called hooks i’ve tried but these seem to push down the background so are pretty useless.

    Would it be possibe for example to add images that are links to other websites within the css. I’ve tried adding php tags in the functions sheet, but I assume I shouldn’t really mess with this. Website =

    Hope too hear from you soon

    Hi Chris

  238. 244

    Absolutely LOVE this theme. Perfect for my portfolio.

    Matt, anything you want to update can be found in the CSS file.

  239. 245

  245. 251

    After spending some (way too much) time on google, I found a solution to the file_get_contents issue:

    1) Create a file in the wordpress install directory named ‘php.ini’.
    2) Paste the following text inside of the file & then save it.

    allow_url_fopen = On
    allow_url_include = On

    Hope it helps.

    Is there a way to re-size the homepage images/screenshots to a bit larger size? If so how can this be done?

  247. 253

    Am I the only one missing the PSD ?
    Uselsss without it.

  248. 254

    @Roby, what PSD? what are you trying to modify?
    @Jonathan. Go to Media Settings and adjust the values for the thumbnail, medium and large image sizes.
    @Narley Fabricio, in a new post, scroll down to the Post Video Options. You can enter video URL, dimensions and embeded code.
    @Matt, try taking a look style.css, for #page-nav li a the default colour is #BBBBBB, visiteda:visited {color:#FFFFFF; and for hover a:hover { color: #ddd
    @Judi, there are plenty of Captchas available, search via Add New Plugin in WordPress Admin.

  249. 255

    @ Jonathon, Sorry, I did not post a complete response, I have now added a tutorial to change thumbnail image sizes which can be found at look forward to any responses.

  250. 256

    @Narcis, check out the functions.php for Gallery and look for the following code.
    <a href="" title="Share on Twitter">Tweet This

  251. 257

    @Narcis, Sorry, the code got stripped out during posting, but you should be able to find it.

  252. 258

    Thank you

    Hello, nice theme, really nice!!!

    I have a question, how can I create a new category?
    I’m trying from the main menu, but nothing appears at all.

    Am I doing something wrong?

  259. 268

    Hi, I’d like to use this theme but when I add a category it still says “No categories” and there are no thumbs showing, only the direct link to the post works, not the thumb…
    Any ideas?

    thanks, nice theme. i just want to know how to use buysellads widget on multiple places same as on the demo site. i hav added the widget on indextop section but then m not been able to ad the same widget on single page. i can use the widget only once.
    please help

  263. 272

    Hi, I cannot find a place to change the footer with my own details. At “widgets” I found a lot of “sidebar” or something like that, but “index bottom” does not make such a footer, separated from the images, where I can drag my “last comments” and so on …

    Where can I put my own widgets to appear as “footer”?


  264. 273

    I’ve found it:
    the footer text can be changed in the thematic option page, and widgets can be put in the “1st subsidiary aside”.

  265. 274

    Hi all, thanks a lot for this theme, i can’t find the way to put a video instead of the full size image…

  331. 355

    Thanks for such a great and flexible theme. I have warped it quite a bit because it’s so workable. Still a few bugs to work out, especially on the single post but I am getting there.

  332. 356

    Such a great theme, such a huge shame that there’s absolutely no support for it. Chris hasn’t responded to any of the queries in his forums for months and they’re now full of spammy stuff.

    Smashingmag, any chance of similar themes that are supported?

  333. 357

  337. 361

    Hi – great theme and I appreciate the fact it’s a giveaway. I’ve set up a site and after 5 hours of uploading images/configuring pages and posts the logo disappeared (!) and I don’t know how to get it back. Anyone else experience the same?

  338. 362

    The theme is a really great, but i have been failing, trying to customize it. The footer is not three column, but rather one column, any widget you add to the secondary subsidiary aside and the third subsidiary aside are added below the first aside in the left most footer column. Also the primary aside and the second aside do not work for the post pages. There is just a blank space. You can check it out at

    Any help in fixing these two issues is greatly appreciated

  339. 363

    How add I more images at post, below the big one?

  340. 364

    I need help. I added this theme added my two sets of photos to the uploads section like it says, thumbs and fullsize.. I made a new page and added two new custom fields along with the location of the files. and tried to test that before I did all 40 new custom fields per image.. and it doesn’t show. Any ideas? Website is help please. email me so i can see thanks.!

  346. 372

    Great theme, really enjoying playing with it and using it to learn WP (I’m new to this). I’d like to be able to use more than one big picture in a post, have multiples and text tat spans the width of the screen. Can this be done?

  347. 373


    WordPress 2.9.1 tells me that the “gallery” theme is broken and the template is missing… HELP please!


  348. 375

    Excellent theme. Is there a way to change the default text ‘Select Category’ in the category drop down menu widget? Also, if peeps are using imbedded videos instead of the ‘big’ picture in posts could we some examples.

  349. 376

    i cant find the answer 2 or 3 already asked: It only shows 10 images “post” thumbnail and creates another page. Is there any way I can change the amount of post thumbnails on a page? thanks by advance

    • 377

      @adminbdu69 Are you referring to Settings>Reading>Blog pages show at most? If so, WordPress defaults at 10 posts I believe. You can change it there.
      If not, plz excuse my ignorance.

      • 378

        THANKS so much Ogrila!!!!! it was simple but i tried for 3 days to find the solution. You are my rescuer. Once again thank you.

  350. 379

If i do use this where can i donate some money to you? also, in between the navbar at the top and the thumbnails, is it possible to insert a flash player to flick through images?? like this -> – also, is there a section to insert ads anywhere in this theme?? – also, do you have another site to view the demo? (this demo link isn’t working) cheers mate

    a problem is with parent category
    if I add a category in a parent cat .. the child link is under that category link which is tooooo bad :s

  359. 388

    I love this template/theme! I have used it many times and have recently gone back to it because of the newest release. (1.2)

    I have a question though; how can I make the thumbnails keep their original quality and not stretch?
    At your demo site ( the thumbs look very even and proportionate.

    Here is my site that I am having the trouble on
    Even when I make a 125×125 thumb, it always stretches (view my site for an example).
    Please help, and thanks.

  360. 389

    Lovely idea this theme, but my eyes glaze over at:

    1: Create a thumbnail for each entry sized 125×125

    I have to make a thumbnail and full size for EVERY post???

    What is the WP Post thumbnail for then?

    Terence Conran’s wife once said: “Life’s too short to stuff a mushroom”, well it’s too short to be making thumbnails for WP posts too.

    Also, this happens on the post pages:

    Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /…myserverpath/wp-content/themes/gallery/functions.php on line 131

    Warning: file_get_contents( [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /…myserverpath/wp-content/themes/gallery/functions.php on line 131

  361. 390

    to bad I can’t use php coding for sidebars for the left and right and have those thumbnails in the middle!

  362. 391

    First off, thanks for the amazing theme!

    I have been using WP for years but never really used widgets before. I followed the directions as far as adding the widgets I want to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd subsidiary aside. So I added two widgets to each, which should have given me 3 columns containing 2 widgets each. For some reason it is displaying only 2 columns and is adding 3 to each. So all of the widgets are showing, yet not in the correct format. I have double checked numerous times and I have them added correctly in the widget area but it is not displaying the way that I have them added.

    Any ideas? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

  363. 392

    hey there,

    was wondering is there a way to turn this theme in to a ecommerce site?

    Is there a way to have the WP-Post Ratings stats show up under each 125×125 logo on the gallery home page?


  368. 397

    This theme breaks in older version of IE.. Shows no transparency also.. I think it needs a revision.

  369. 398

    Love the theme. Is there a way to exclude a category of posts (ie, blog posts) from appearing on the home page? I’d like to create a blog to go with this theme (I’m a writer) but can’t find an easy way to do it.

  370. 399

    Further to my last post, I decided to see if I could automate the thumbnails etc. with the new Post Thumbnail feature. I could and I did. Mr Wallace, I can’t seem to find any way to contact you about this!

  371. 401

    RSS Feeds.

    My sight relies heavily on RSS feeds, however, the images being pulled from the feed are not being inserted into the thumbnail container. I do not have a lot of experience coding for php so i am not really sure what to edit. Does anyone have an idea what might be the issue?

  372. 402

    I have great problem with categories and parent category at the header. It doenst work. Can you help me? Jana

  373. 403

    Good ol’ IE – pages a bit messed up, but overall a great theme

  374. 404

    Indeed a very nice theme. SImple and effective. However a small doubt. I can´t find where to change the order of my posts by it’s date of creation…

    Can someone help me with thaT?


  375. 405

    why this post still here can’t work this theme.

    rawi rai

  376. 406

    I love this theme… love it! When working with the social media links, here’s a few things I found that might be helpful for others.

    1. To make the automatic links appear on your posts, you must supply a url (likely the url of the post) in the “Website URL” field for your post.

    2. If you want to change the appearance of the auto links (ie. re-arrange, remove some), edit lines 149 – 156 of the functions.php file. Remember to back up your files before you start editing them!

    3. There’s a whole set of 32 icons included in /images/icons/. I wanted to also include a basic “Follow us” link in the footer of my site that used the Twitter and Facebook icons. So I added the “Text” widget to the 1st Subsidiary Aside and created an unordered list like this:

    <ul class=”meta”>
    <li class=”twitter” style=”padding:5px 0 5px 24px”><a href=”>Twitter</a></li>
    <li class=”facebook” style=”padding:5px 0 5px 24px”><a href=”>Facebook</a></li>

    I also created a facebook class in style.css after line 134:

    background: url(“images/icons/facebook.png”) no-repeat left center

    You could do this for as many icons/links as you need.

    I can’t post thumbnails of my pictures… I upload the photo, and then the 125X125 thumb, and then the photo appears but the thumb doesn’t. All my thumbs are like there is no thumb at all.

    My blog is:

    Please help me!

    • 408

      You should put the 125×125 image as featured image of your post, that’s how it worked for me.

      • 409

        “You should put the 125×125 image as featured image of your post, that’s how it worked for me.”

        What do you mean by “as featured”? I uploaded the image and paste the link in that special place… what else should I do?

        • 410

          I was having this same problem and searched for hours trying to find a solution. However, I could never find one. So i decided to try and find a solution myself.

          I believe I have found one, at least it worked for me.

          You have to open the file “loop-thumbnail.php” and change some code.

          Look for the following “$custom_thumb = get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘thumbnail’, true);” it should be on or around line 26.

          Then look for “if( $thumbnail ):” which should be the next segment of code on or around line 28)

          It appeared to me that the variable name is incorrect, so simply do the following:

          Change “$thumbnail” on line 28 to “$custom_thumb” (the variable define on line 26) and it will work.


    • 411

      You may not have the required PHP module installed (image magik or similar). This is required to display thumbs.

  378. 412

    I am adding images and the thumbnails are showing 1 per row? ??? please help

  379. 413

    Kim! I am having the same issue! All my posts on my portfolio page are loading in one weird diagonal column. I’ve come a long way customizing this theme, and I’d appreciate ANY help on making my gallery page look like the sample, instead of this:

    I’m a young guy out of school, and I need this site to help me find work. Please help.

  380. 414

    Yeah, I had to deactivate and go to another theme… seems to be after the update.

  381. 417

    Yeaah, i have the same problem with brains, the thumbnails displaying in one column, and they are un-alligned.

    Where can i find and download Thematic 0.9.5, it’s nothing anywhere :(

    Need help here, but i love the theme :)

  382. 418

    still same problem. I guess I need to find a new theme, such a shame though cos its a really nice one.

  383. 419


    November 3, 2010 2:24 pm

    For people having problems with the hover function not working properly, and thumbnail misalignment (only 1 per row), you need to add the following to the Gallery theme functions.php file:


    them everything works perfectly :D

    • 420

      I’ve changed the functions.php file as described but it doesn’t fix the issue.

      Is there a special place to add the code?
      I’ve placed it straight at the beginning …

      // Gallery Child Theme Functions

      // Bug fix – one thumbnail per row
      // end bug fix

      function childtheme_menu_args($args) {

      • 421

        Sorry for the bad rating KrentistTheDentist …

        It works.
        You need to add it in the child’s theme functions.php file …


  384. 422

    Yep.. seems to be broken

  385. 423


    don’t work…?

  386. 425

    Update killed the look of my theme with thumbnail misalignment. I added the code but nothing happens. Where exactly do i add the code. I placed it in the child’s theme functions.php but i get the same loook.

  387. 426

    Check your quotes, make sure they’re “apostrophes”, the one usually found below the double quotes key:


    I’m not sure if the above will print correctly in this page, but don’t use the open-quote/close-quote combination. Use the one you always use when writing I’m.

    It works on the homepage, but in the single pages the comments section is too far below the post.

  388. 427


    Any idea on how to add a twitter widget?


  389. 428

    Still does not work. Where can i get the older version of Thematic?

  390. 429

    this sucks!!! the thumbnails are all aligned vertically and somewhat staggered. I want them to be side by side like the example theme! Please help! the solution above did NOT work.

    • 430

      That’s exactly the same problem I have right now.. I suspect the error comes from the CSS codes.

  391. 431

    Hi there… Have a question… How I can add the search function on main page? big thanks in advance

  392. 432

    I finally got it to work. Thanks

  393. 433

    Hey K3J Designs, how did you do to fix your problem? You tried the Lalo Marquez solution?

  394. 435

    Hi Again … just askin where I can find the header.php in gallery theme … to add a search box or give me a solution to add search box into main page … :D big thanks in advance

  395. 436

    Many many thanks, still an advanced modern theme!

  396. 437

    Thank you very beautiful.

  397. 438

    Thank you once for the theme, and thank you a hundred times for the fixing of that problem with the alignment of the thumnails.

    Love you all.

  398. 439

    it’s my first website, so I’m really new to this… is there a way for me to changethe header ( the word “GALLERY” + the green icon) and replace this with an image (my company logo)? Thanks!

    • 440

      OK, I replaced the logo.png by my logo, and it worked… but it is very small (same size as the original logo, of course… that makes sense!!).

      I wanted my logo to take up much more space, at least until the RSS logo for the width and bigger also for the height… like a lot og blogs at the top, the header is quite big…

      Can I do the same with this template? Do you know where I can modify these values (width and height of header) in the code? What does this correspond to in the code?


      • 441

        Yay! I found it!! It’s in the Stylesheet, under “#blog-title a” –> width and height

        it’s the first time I change code, this is fun!!

  399. 442

    For those of you who want to change the full size image, go to functions.php and look for this line:

    <img src="ID, ‘full-image’)){echo get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘full-image’, $single = true);}else{echo ‘/wp-content/themes/gallery/images/full-image-default.jpg';} ?>” alt=”ID, ‘web-url’, $single = true); ?>”/>

    and replace with:

    <img src="ID, ‘full-image’)){echo get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘full-image’, $single = true);}else{echo ‘/wp-content/themes/gallery/images/full-image-default.jpg';} ?>” width=”500″ height=”375″ alt=”ID, ‘web-url’, $single = true); ?>”/>

    Change the width and height to whatever you want.

  400. 443


    for me the solution does not work either. Could you help me please to make the theme work with wordpress 3?

    thanks in advance!

  401. 444

    Thank you very much.

    but please : How i can add “DOWNLOADED TIMES”, i mean like this: ( Downloaded 301 Times ).

    Thank you.

  402. 445


    use ” instead of ‘ . Place the above in Theme Functions/function.php, in the beggining of the file.

    it works like a charm ;-)

  403. 446

    Anyone know how to customize something similar to this on the regular account? I already have a host and blogger. Just joined WP to play around with the features and see if I like it better or not. This is the exact setup I’m looking for, but WP won’t let me upload themes unless I pay for a hosting service?!?!?!?! Any thoughts on how to achieve a similar look in regular If not, a similar look in BLOGGER (doubtful). :)

    Please let me know. Thank you!!!!!! :)

    @Judi, there are plenty of Captchas available, search via Add New Plugin in WordPress Admin.

    Hi all. can anyone help me about this theme.

    this is the link. I have a problem. as you can see there is a gap/space between the image and the article. can you help me to enlarge the article width to fill the blank space..

    pleaseee help me…

  416. 460 is where you are taken to download the latest version via link above, you can’t download it from there. Go to the theme web site and it’s not a free theme it’s $50.00. You might want to advise folks this is no longer a free theme…..

  417. 461

    Wow, great collection! I will be using foreword thinking, It works pretty good so far. Its worth the money! i wass thinking of findin someoane to program a blog for me but it seems easyer to use one of these. they look verry nice and simple.

    Will these themes work on my blog perfectly?

  418. 462

    I installed this theme and it logged me out of the admin area. It also won’t let me log back in. Anyone else have this problem? How do you fix this?

  419. 463

    I wanted to know how to make the gallery display Category “thumbnails” on the main page, instead of recent posts.

  420. 464

    For anyone still having problems with the theme, I pulled the repository of thematic and updated it to version 0.9.5.

    If you still need it, I uploaded it on my site. Here’s the link:

    If anyone wants to mirror it too, don’t hesitate to. :)
    Also, you will notice there’s a .svn folder in there. That’s Subversion’s version-control folder. It will help you if you want to update to another revision/version, but first you will need to have TortoiseSVN, or an alternative to it first. Of course, when you’re uploading it to your wordpress website, you’re free to delete it.

    And last, you will notice how WordPress will instantly notice you about an update, when you upload it. It will tell you to download the latest thematic version, which wouldn’t be what you want exactly, since you’ve down-graded to this one. Just putting it out there, so you don’t go and press the button without thinking or reading, as soon as you see “Update”. :D

  421. 465

    I found a way to fix the footer dark background !
    go to the theme css editor on the admin pannel, and search for it:

    margin-top: 0;
    height: 30px;
    padding: 20px 0;

    change the height to w.e you want, i made it 440, but you can try 100%, idk, i suck with coding. good luck guys, great theme!

  422. 466

    “The plugin does not have a valid header.”

    Installation should look like the above phrase.
    WordPress 3.2 is being used.

    I would like to know what the reason is.

  423. 467

    I love this theme, but I made some changes and now the thumbnail rollovers don’t work where the name appears below the image. Has anyone run into this before?
