SimpleFolio: A Free Clean Portfolio WordPress Theme

Advertisement

Today we are glad to release a beautiful, simple and clean portfolio WordPress theme — SimpleFolio, designed by Omar E. Corrales1 and released for Smashing Magazine and its readers. SimpleFolio is a portfolio theme that includes a blog and a very extensive option page that allows you to exclude all your portfolio items from the blog page. It also includes a front page slider.

It has 2 different widget areas and threaded comments, and also supports paged comments and has 2 different page templates for advanced usage. The control of images is done from the post page.

Download the theme for free!

The theme is released under GPL. You can use it for all your projects for free and without any restrictions. You may modify the theme as you wish. Please link to this article if you want to spread the word.

Behind the design

As always, here are some insights from the designer:

I created this theme after getting tired of all the fancy design themes that are very popular now a days, this is a design for people that just need the job done without complicating them selfs. The best use can be either for just someone thats starting to blog or some artist that needs to expose there art.

Thank you, Omar. We appreciate your work and your good intentions!

    I just want to say thanks! This theme is amazing! I do wish you guys would add more customizability options like the K2 theme instead of having to have to play with the core HTML and CSS. Otherwise, it’s an amazing theme that by far surpasses K2 in terms of its basic look and feel. I am using it for two of my sites now. Thank you!

    I’m not sure what’s going on here, but the demo seems to take a very long time just to switch to things like “about,” “blog” etc. Could some Javascript be getting stuck in very long, unnecessary loops? I don’t think it is my internet connection. And I’m using Firefox 3.6.

    I like the look and feel of it.
    Unfortunately it’s not translatable. Which is something I’m definitely looking for in a Theme, pushed by Smashing.
    Kinda disappointing to me.

        Well, if someone happens to want to use the Theme in any other language than English, he/she would have to go alter all the templates of the theme by either translating them directly, or making them compatible with WordPress’ translation API.

        Other than that it is a nice piece of code!

        • 69

          Do you mean that the theme does not have .mo .po files included and that to translate you would need to edit every .php file and manually translate the English text inside them?

    Great posting. Personally I find this design is not well suited to be a portfolio design. In my professional years, I’ve found that when a client is looking at a portfolio.. they want to see all your work at a glance, and then dig deeper. In the portfolio above you have to click through to see all the work.

      I had the same issue – you can’t just upload the .zip like with some other themes. Unzip the theme on your computer and find the folder labeled simply simplefolio then upload that via FTP (i.e. NOT via WordPress) to your wp-content/themes folder. You’ll then find the theme in your WP dashboard ready to activate.

        Yo menos, tampoco veo las imágenes de la página principal por lo que estoy usando VSlider, un completo plugin que básicamente hace lo mismo. Y respecto a las imágenes del portfolio, si seleccionas “Select a category” y pones mostrar submenu, sale el menu y le das click, salen las páginas y todo incluso con paginación pero no salen lás imágenes ni el texto. Aún así no deja de ser un buen theme.

    The theme’s PHP code is licensed GPL, but the rest of it seems to be under a more restrictive license. Perhaps Smashing Magazine could look into that / ask for a relicense?

      You have to download and unzip the theme, not upload it directly as-downloaded, the zip contains more files then just the theme.

      Not every designer is a website designer, if you specialize in logo design, flyer design, or even illustration for posters, why should you need to learn how to design for the web? You want to show what you can do, and maybe what you can do is not website design

    This is probably the best portfolio theme, I’ve ever seen for WordPress! Beautiful work!
    Sadly, I have a little problem with it, because I want to use it on non-english blog and probably the Cufon can’t manage the cyrillic symbols. Sadly, I’m not good enough to make it work.

    Still, this is one of the best themes available! Keep up the good work and thanks a lot for sharing this masterpiece with us, SM and Omar!

    HI,

    I really like this theme but one problem i noticed is that the background on the blog in IE7 doesnt go all the way to the bottom of the content – where as it does in FF. Any ideas? It’s probably just a CSS glitch in IE.

    Other than that it looks awesome!

    Another tip:

    If you want the image slider on the home page to use the “exerpt” of your portfolio posts instead of using the first x number of characters from the post itself, open template-home.php, and change this:
    the_content_limit($text_count, ”)
    to this:
    the_excerpt()

      Jason,
      You might be having problem using the theme. Try this:
      Create a page called “Home” and use the “Home” template instead of the “Portfolio” template.
      That should do the trick.
      I’ve come up with the steps on using this theme too.

    Great theme. I’m doing some tweaking to make it work for my site, however I’m having an issue with the dropdown menus not showing in IE. When I make a sub page, the menu will show the nice dropdown in Firefox, but not IE. Also, in IE, the menu is just showing as standard text, not the cool javascript text rendering that shows in Firefox. Any fixes or workarounds for crappy Internet Explorer? Thanks.

    I am able to fix the breadcrumb though; got the code from http://www.catswhocode.com/blog/how-to-breadcrumb-function-for-wordpress

    2nd question still remain unsolved, How do i have a blog style for a specific link on NAV (say, Blog) it mostly shows the date, author and comments? I have a link “blog” which is using “default template” but the Blog page does’t show the date and other information and blog posts are not lined up in the Blog page.

    I like this one, this is the kind of clean theme I am looking. I might be using it on my blog:
    submitopresto.com/web/ so thank you for pointing this one up.

    Keep up the good work SmashMag folks! I really appreciate your resources.

    Best,

    I’m having 2 issues with this template

    1. When adding widgets to the my homepage under the featured posts, I have found that I can unfortunately only add 3 widgets, anymore and the 4 widgets goes to the wrong place.
    Check out this picture of it: http://i48.tinypic.com/2a5ngpv.jpg

    I’ve seen on another persons website (http://www.samirkamble.com/) who is using the same theme that they have it set up properly I was wondering if you can tell me what I’m doing wrong.

    2. I have my site set up with the featured posts working properly, I was wondering though is there a way to have it so when a featured post is clicked (from the homepage) it comes up as a normal blog post instead of taking up the entire page cutting off widgets on the right side and the comment section at the bottom?

    SimpleFolio is a Free WordPress Theme with Premium-Quality features and design. You won’t find many free portfolio themes quite like this one.Overall this theme is really great. Plus, it is a really nice start for web designers looking to create something similar, as it already includes an options panel and it is really simple to customize.

    Thanks for the awesome theme! I frequently look at Smashing for new WP themes and I’ve seen the SimpleFolio post here several times, but I always thought it wasn’t really what I was looking for. But then the other day I looked a little closer and tried out the demo – turns out it’s exactly what I was looking for!

    The setup was a little tricky as the readme is pretty sparse but the forums helped a little. Anyway, I can’t thank you guys enough and I’m a huge (long time!) fan of Smashing Magazine. My site with SimpleFolio: http://www.rocket5project.com

      Make sure you upload the /simplefolio folder in the theme directory of your server.

      Unzip the the downloaded package on your local system first, before uploading.

      As a feedback to Omar and SM, I think the hierarchy of theme folders could be reworked or the users should be prompted before downloading.

      Thanks for a great theme, btw!

    I’m not a WordPress template developer, but it would seem to me that an upgrade to WordPress shouldn’t break a template.

    In the case of the SimpleFolio Theme, did it break because the developer didn’t follow rules or guidelines when developing the template?

    It’s great that there are knowledgeable people quick to post a fix when something breaks. With this template, would be a bit more hesitant to press the upgrade button so quickly.

      Hi DJ,

      the error is because the .zip does not contain the theme files at root level.
      Instead they are in a subfolder.
      Solution:

      download the zip and extract
      goto the subfolder with the theme files and create a new .zip
      upload the new .zip to your wordpress install and off you go.

    Not sure if anyone still needs this info…but it helped me:

    The sub-menu will not show on hover for the home page (I think the portfolio page as well) because of a bad jquery file in the template js folder. Simply update the file with the updated script and voila, it works.

    It looks like this theme is not compatible with upcoming WordPress version 3.2 which is in beta version.

    Please fix it. :-)

    does anyone know how to add phone number on top right corner? I can add a phone number by editing style.css and header.php but I wanted it to be in line with the wrapper and not all the way to the right.

    align to the right makes the phone number goes all the way to the right while adding a margin doesn’t look good when viewing it in different resolution. float right doesn’t work as well, any ideas? thank you

        @Tobias
        To fix the slider you need to do the following:

        In the dashboard, select in the left menu » Appearances » Editor » Page Template (template-home.php)

        then change:

        `$category = get_option(‘sf_portfolio_category’);`

        to:

        `$category = sf_get_category_id(get_option(‘sf_portfolio_category’));`

        and change:

        `$my_query = new WP_Query(‘showposts=’.$slide_count.’&category_name=’.$category);`

        to:

        `$my_query = new WP_Query(‘showposts=’.$slide_count.’&cat=’.$category);`

        This will get the slider displaying correctly again.

    Really nice work! Just wondering if it is possible you can make several portfolio pages? Like one who shows post from “web” category and the other page shows post from “print” category. Is it possible to send the name of the category into $category ? How would that be done?

    Thank you!

    Yes sorry there seems to be a mistake, the theme does not come with a contact form. But it does come with the styles for you to add any contact form plugin.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    I had the same issue – you can’t just upload the .zip like with some other themes. Unzip the theme on your computer and find the folder labeled simply simplefolio then upload that via FTP (i.e. NOT via WordPress) to your wp-content/themes folder. You’ll then find the theme in your WP dashboard ready to activate.
