About JRNY

JRNY is lightweight and simple yet big and bold. JRNY can be used as a photoblog-style WordPress theme for sharing your thoughts, videos, articles or audio. Of course, you could also use JRNY as a minimal portfolio to show off your latest work.


Full Height Homepage hero

Sidebar Drawer Menu/Widget System

Turn on text before hover

By default, the theme shows full images and then reveals the titles and details on hover, you can change this via the Theme Customizer to always show the text. The image darkens on hover so text is more readable. The best of both worlds!

Unique Touches

We’re sure you’ll love JRNY, but here are a few extras you may not have noticed…

Expandable page/post header


  • Simple and clean navigation overlay which also handles widgets
  • Full width inline images using the wide insert shortcode

Color Options

You can control colours for the entire theme using the beautifully simple WordPress Theme Customizer.
