Well if you are then you don’t have to worry because you are not alone knowing that there are also a lot individuals that own a blog site which experience the same problem as yours. Now the solution for this problem is the Gallery WordPress theme.
Gallery WordPress themes is a thematic child theme, yes you heard me right, this is designed is made by Chris Wallace. This WordPress themes isn’t exactly a new concept, but this is what I swear, that by the time you will see this theme you will be surely amazed. Go on reading this article, and I will discuss to you one by one the features of this theme and how to set it up as well as how to add content on your blog.
By the time you get the Gallery WordPress Themes, the first thing that you should know is on how to install it. You should always remember that this is a child theme and because it is a child theme then the first and the most important thing that you should do first is to upload both the parent theme and the child theme, to do this you have to download Thematic theme and extract the folder and then after upload it to your /wp-content/themes/ directory. Then after doing that first step, next is to download the Gallery, extract the folder again and upload it again in your /wp-content/themes/ directory. After doing all of the uploading task, you have to log-in now to your WordPress admin panel, look for the Appearance and find Themes and them activate the “”Gallery”” theme that you have recently uploaded.
After all the set up is done and found out that all is working well and functional, then now is the time to add content. But prior to this you should know first details about Thumbnail Sizing. I make it a point that you should know about this because Gallery WordPress Theme really depends heavily on thumbnail images that sizes 125 x 125, to make sure on the size you can go to WordPress options and set to the amount to of the thumbnail size that you require. For more additional control of images, you might want to know on using the Max Image Size Control plugin. By knowing this plugin and as well using it you won’t constantly resize the images and would allow you to let WordPress do the hard work for you. If ever you are making use of screenshots of web pages on your gallery items then I would suggest to you the ScreenGrab, it is an add-on intented for FireFox, which will definitely help you in is saving full-page screenshots very easily.
Finally we are now about to add a content by using this WordPress theme, due to popular demand, there is a post setting panel added in version 1.1 on this Gallery WordPress Theme, by doing this way you won’t have to mess around various custom fields.
