SimpleFolio: A Free Clean Portfolio WordPress Theme

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! Link

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 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!
