Read on to find out how to use this theme, along with my thoughts…
Setting It Up
The first step to installing the Slidefolio theme is just like installing any other WordPress theme. Download Slidefolio from the link above, extract and upload the “slidefolio” directory to your wp-content/themes/ directory, and activate.
After activating, you should have something like this:
Looking a little empty, so why don’t we start adding content?
Creating posts with built-in slideshows in the Slidefolio theme is surprisingly simple. Just upload one or a batch of photos to a post, and a slideshow is automatically created. Just to demonstrate, I decided to make this quick Screenr video.
Pretty cool, huh?
There is a simple theme options page which will allow you to upload an image logo to use (instead of the default text logo with your blog’s name)
Hope you all found this theme review useful. I haven’t seen the Slidefolio theme covered on any other blogs, so if you didn’t find it over at Nick’s blog, this is probably the first you’re hearing about it.
Is there a market for simple slideshow themes like this? I suppose it could also be used as a WordPress theme for photographers as well. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
