Tripod Colorful Professional Photography WordPress Theme

Tripod was one of the first grid themes I ever reviewed and it’s still going incredibly strong!

Tripod is a premium quality theme for building an incredible grid portfolio site.  That’s what you get right off the bat, but you really need to delve deeper into Tripod to find everything that this template does well.  But Tripod is more than just an incredible WordPress portfolio theme, this is a great personal blog WordPress template too.

Rapidly closing in on 7000 sales on ThemeForest, Tripod has accumulated a solid rating of 4.28 overall, which puts it squarely in the above average level.

You can use the template builder to display any content type you wish on any page: category posts, tags, banners, team groups, testimonials, latest or featured post, widgets, even individual posts.  For each added element you can choose how to display your content: carousel, filter, load more button or pagination and sort the content by date, likes, number of views, etc. You can also choose your layout: full width or with sidebar and enable the mosaic, grid, thumbnail or list-view.  The template builder is also available for each post / page so you can add elements on your individual posts following the same rules as for template builder.  When you initially install the theme, you will already have 3 default templates in your list:

  • Mainpage that is assigned for your Main page layout.  Default that is assigned for your Archives by date, Post format, Post type, Attachment, Author, Categories,Tags, Search layouts, etc.
  • Posts that is assigned for your Pages, Posts and Gallery Layout

Each template is comprised of the following areas: Header, Content and Footer.  Each of these areas contains several so-called elements: Logo, Main menu, Log in menu, Slideshow, Widgets and more.  Thus, the general rule for Templates is to divide content in areas and add desired elements in custom places at user´s will.

You can have multiple blog layouts: grid view, thumbnails view, mosaic or list view and choose between the image resize method: resize or crop.  You can use the narrow or large port-view layout by simply ticking the corresponding setting from backend.  Not the least, you can add background images for individual posts or for the whole site.  The theme comes with several predefined background patterns, as well.

Enable the “Like” feature to let users easily access ‘favorite’ posts and raise their rating. When a certain post reaches the limit of 50 likes it will become hot. The like limit can be changed from backend while the number of likes for all posts can be randomly generated.

So, that’s what Tripod is all about.  What say you?  Is this a theme you’re considering?  I can recommend it for all creative portfolio purposes without reservation or hesitation.
