Looking for a theme that will allow a viewer to filter blog entries by category.

Hoping to find something that looks similar to the common filtering done by quicksand or isotope for portfolios.

It would be used to help provide focus for visitors. This site will cover a diverse set of products/services. Users coming for “Product A” might not have any interest in “Service B”. It is easy to filter the portfolio, but I cannot find anything that can filter the blogs entries in the same way.

Of course, clicking on a category list would accomplish the same thing, but it does not look as clean or engaging as the effects produced from filtering a portfolio using quicksand or isotope.

I’d recommend using the Isotope plugin, its the newer more advanced version of Masonry done by the same guy.

It’s not done by the same guy. It is only inspired by Quicksand, but the author is totally different. And yes, it’s much better. It’s more complex and the main strong point is that it doesn’t clone all the elements on the page, like Quicksand does. It also contains a lot of methords and properties, more than the other. So overall, Isotope is better.

It requires a commercial license to be used in commercial projects, but the price is quite low and you can use it unlimited times after you buy it..

Thanks…

But I am not trying to decide which to use…

I am trying to find a theme that already achieves the effect.

We don’t have the time or the skills to do the coding ourselves (at least not yet).

You misunderstood. It’s done by the same guy – the author of Isotope and Masonry.

The OP didn’t ask about Masonry and Isotope.. He asked about Quicksand and Isotope.. And these two are not the same thing, and don’t have the same author..

Guys! Did you read what he said? :D

I’m afraid I don’t know any theme by heart that has a filterable blog, only portfolio. But you could always set up your blog up by using the portfolio. Avada lets you have a filder and you can easily change the portfolio slug to a slug of your choice.
Maybe someone else knows a theme that already has a filterable blog tho.

Good luck!

@RubenBristian, yes, I know. My answer was about @contempoinc’s message. Isotope is good, probably the best plugin available.

On topic:
@kopyrite, I don’t think that you will find something similar on themeforest(or is hard to find), Isotope/Quicksand is used mainly for portfolios and it will filter only element from a single page. So if you want a theme that can filter blog posts you must create yourself with ajax. Of course is possible to combine ajax with Isotope. Or create an Infinte Scroll. http://isotope.metafizzy.co/demos/infinite-scroll.html
