    Your WordPress Product

Im pleased to announce the release of my second free WordPress theme: Photum is an HTML5 responsive theme for a Photographers portfolio. I released this theme yesterday on my Photography Blog.

Technical Details

As I said, the theme is responsive using some javascript – the main portfolio page re-arranges depending on your browser size. The portfolio is handled by custom post types and there are extra taxonomies for the location of the photo and equipment used which can be set by the user. This information is displayed as an overlay on the individual photo pages.

The theme has a simple theme options panel which allows you to upload a logo and save tracking code.

The theme has two widget areas, the sidebar and the blog pages and uses the WordPress custom menu builder.

Full instructions to use the theme are online here.

I will try to provide support via the comments here but can’t guarantee my timely reponse, please also see the WordPress.org support forums. If you require custom WordPress work, please get in touch.

  1. Excellent Theme Oli. Looking forward to using it and playing with it :)

  2. Jonas Bergenudd

    nice theme. However I think the information box makes it difficult to see the whole image on the single image page…

  3. Peyman

    It’s  beautiful theme…

  4. Oli Amazing Theme, I like it a lot….Its nice and clean with a great layout nice work,


  5. Hi I like your theme, but are interested if you can get the hover effect used on the thumbnails in to another theme by using some plugin or regular code?

  6. Adrian

    Cool theme, but…I have a problem. No posts. Simply – posts are not shown on my homepage. Can’t get it to work…

    Oli, Amazing theme !

    But I’ve an error PHP :

    Parse error: parse error in C:wampwwwmywordpresswp-contentthemesPhotumloop.php on line 147 

    And this line appeared too :

    true, "label" => "Locations", "singular_label" => "Location", "rewrite" => true)); ?> true, "label" => "Equipments Used", "singular_label" => "Equipment Used", "rewrite" => true)); ?> 

    Do you have any solutions ?
    Thank you.
    Very beautiful theme…

      Hmm… First error : line 147.
      We must convert the file loop.php in DOS (line ending : CRLF).

      But the other bug…

    Really great theme, you’re helping lots of artists, i was wondering though, how to add those tumbnail “more images” at the bottom of your posts?

    Hello Oli Dale,

    It’s a great theme indeed.  I would like to know, how can i have the pagination at home page? And Instead of using custom post types, how can i make the blog display on home page ? Please kindly support. Thank you.

  10. not compatible with wordpress 3.5.1

  11. I have installed not compatible with wordpress 3.5.1 along with your template and images are not showing on my home page as instructed to. I hope this is not a problem with your template as I love it but obviously need it to work.

  12. when I try to view the preview or the actual page of a “photo” post, all I get is “Apologies, but the page you requested could not be found. Perhaps searching will help.”

    I followed the instructions on using the theme exactly.

    Oli loved the preview so much I downloaded it, will update on progress but would prefer not to publish site details as I’m doing this for my dad’s photography blog!

    Thanks mate

  14. I have shortlisted Photum for my next project. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Hi! i love your theme. But i encountered a problem here. When i visit the photo page that i added, it gave me a “Not Found

    Apologies, but the page you requested could not be found. Perhaps searching will help” error.

    Can I know where have i gone wrong?

    Thanks !

  16. solved! For the benefit of ppl who had encountered the same problem, go to your admin panel column, Setting -> Permalinks -> choose Default or Custom structure

  17. Great theme but doesn’t work right in wp 3.8.

  18. Edit file custompost.php so it has <?php not <? if you are having troubles with this theme

    true, “label” => “Locations”, “singular_label” => “Location”, “rewrite” => true));
    true, “label” => “Equipments Used”, “singular_label” => “Equipment Used”, “rewrite” => true));

  19. Hi and have a nice day admin i want thanks you about amazing theme i want theme for article can you do it for you with money

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘endif’ (T_ENDIF) in C:\xampp\apps\wordpress\htdocs\wp-content\themes\Photum\loop.php on line 147
