Hi dalkarls, those kind of themplates are the most popular here at Themeforest, the keyword to find them is “wordpress masonry grid portfolio”. Try it your self and find the one you love most. :D.

Just have in mind: most of this kind of gridded themes, will only let you use this layout with a Custom Post Type, and not with regular posts, and maybe you’ll need to present not only the picture, but also text.

Before buying, make all the questions you can have to the author.

Thanks netjmt! After a while I figured out that the keyword was “masonry” and I belive I have found some that are to my liking!

Currently this is the one that I’m most keen on buying, but the pop up still isnt as nice as the photographers portfolios that I linked above

I have sent the authors a mail yesterday but no response, I guees it takes a cople of days for them to reply. I just want to know how easy it is to get rid of the arrows from the “pop up” view that shows on each side of the image.

Thanks for your reply :)

Oh, is very easy indeed. Those little arrows are transparent .pngs file you can replace when making your own in Photoshop for example or looking for “png arrows” on google. If you want o customize your themes a little more, I recommend you to take some CSS tutorials in lynda.com or codecademy.com. It won’t take you more than a day to learn it and some weeks to master it and your life will feel more complete! Trust me!! hehe.

Also, for CSS changes and previews on your themes, Firefox + Firebug extension is a must. You can view some Firebug 5 minute short videos on Youtube.

best of lucks with your new site!

Cool. Final words and recommendations. Assuming you’re in Windows:

-Xampp or Wamp for installing Wordpress locally. (Then, the ‘Duplicator’ wp plugin to take this installation online).

-Notepad++ to make changes to code (it will give you nice colors to the css syntax).

-FileZilla to edit files via FTP (making Notepad++ the default file editor in options).

-Don’t use Chrome + Firebug, because it has much less features than the Firefox version.

-Also, install “Firepicker” addon, to add Color Selection to Firebug.

That’s all I can remember right now! Good luck! :)
