Patio

A beautiful photo-centric theme

patio-featured

Photobloggers rejoice
Or anyone who’s fond of featured image
For a theme which presents your image beautifully

The Origin

Patio is planned to be my fifth theme in the repository. It is designed and developed in March – April 2015. I planned to submit at least six themes in 2015. This is my third theme in 2015.

The Goals

Patio is made with these goals in mind:

  1. As my other themes, it should “just works” and looks great on various screen size (responsive).
  2. I want a different take on photo-centric / photoblog theme. Most themes went with square / pinterest-like approach. Patio should offer a different, fresh, and better approach.
  3. Patio makes skimming content easy and fun. It should be a visual amusement.
  4. It should work well with WP-IG, plugin for syncing your Instagram photos with your WordPress sites. I want to use Patio on my own blog and I use WP-IG.

Plugin Compatibilities

Patio works nicely with these plugins:

  1. Jetpack’s Infinite Scroll & Site Logo. If you have footer widgets, Infinite Scroll is automatically set to click-to-load mode. If you don’t have footer widgets, Infinite Scroll is automatically set to auto-load mode. It adapts with your site settings.
  2. Civil Footnotes
  3. Subtitles
  4. WP-IG

Patio supports footer widgets. It will automatically divide its column width based on number of footer widgets you use. So if you only want two column widgets, you'll have it displayed properly

    Hi,
    how can increase the size of the logo? (Jetpack Site Logo)
    I would like to know if you abandoned this theme, and if you continue to update it.
    Thank you
