About This Theme

“Touchfolio” is a portfolio WordPress theme for artists, photographers and designers. It’s free, will be always free and there won’t be any premium version, this one is already premium.

Main goal of this project is to make all this bunch of flashy photography websites more mobile friendly, with focus on content and providing great user experience on majority of mobile devices.

Don’t forget to view this theme on your tablet, or phone.

Theme features

Gallery

  • Responsive layout down to mobile.
  • Super fast native-style touch navigation for supported devices. Swipe left and right to view project images. Swipe down and down to view projects (powered by RoyalSlider engine).
  • YouTube and Vimeo video support.
  • Deeplinking — link to any album from URL.
  • Three types of image scale types — fit to screen if image is larger, fill the screen and no scale (may be different for each album).
  • Custom album background color or pattern (may be different for each album).
  • Automatically preloads nearby images after current is loaded.
  • Unlimited number of galleries and photos per album, within reason, of course.
  • Add multiple gallery pages by category. For example, you can add to menu
    two pages — “Web” and “Print” with custom list of projects in each.
  • Simple and fast gallery management — upload, reorder, remove images.

Blog & Pages

  • Nothing special, all default elements, like headings, blockquotes, lists, images, captions are styled.
  • Threaded comments support, HTML5 inputs in reply form.

Advanced (mostly for devs)

  • Supported:
    • Desktop: Chrome, Opera, Safari, Firefox, IE 7+
    • Mobile: iOS, Android 2.2+, Opera Mobile (haven’t tested in all versions), Windows Phone 7+, Blackberry OS and even B&W Kindle Keyboard.
  • Hardware-accelerated CSS3 transitions with fallback (supports Firefox 10+ 3d transform). Auto disables on Google Chrome, because of stupid font-rendering bug.
  • Does not block zoom gesture on mobile devices.
  • Built with LESS CSS, processed and cached by wp-less. Extremely simple skinning.
  • Gallery API – documented public methods, callbacks, properties. Gallery can be resized and placed anywhere you want.
  • Gallery keeps only 5 images in browser at once time to save memory on weak mobile devices.
  • Fast page load speed — CSS files are merged, all controls are loaded using one sprite to minify http requests.
  • Works great with WP super cache.
  • Fully translatable.
