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.

Behind the design Link

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!

    Gibt es Möglichkeiten das Template “freizukaufen”? Heißt kein Copyright? Jeder weiß das Fremdwerbung, bzw. fremde Copyrights in Portfolios ziemlich schlecht zur Geltung kommen!

    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 think the demonstrationpage isn’t slow because of the template, its the server. My demopage is as fast as usually http://soyludico.de/wordpress/

    Question: Why does the portfoliopage donnot work? :/
