This is a follow up post to a video I made some time ago about a fantastic website called HorizontalWP.com. It’s a premium WordPress theme website run by Greg Ponchak and devoted entirely to minimal and functional horizontal WordPress themes.
Greg was kind enough to send me a demo version of one of his themes. It’s called the FLSCR theme and in this video I take you through the ins and outs of the theme from installation to end usage. It is one of the most user-friendly themes I’ve come across in quite some time.
As with most of Greg’s themes, FLSCR is best suited to a simple portfolio. It would work well for a photographer, graphic designer, painter or any other creative person looking for a clean blank canvas to showcase their work on. For the demo site in the video, I made use of a series of snapshots I took on a recent trip to Rapa Nui (aka Easter Island).
What I like the most about this theme is the way it automates the image and text processing. Images of all sizes can be uploaded and the theme will resize them to an optimum size. Any text that appears as overlays on the images including links, titles and caption text will change colour according to the tone of the background image. If it’s a dark background, you’ll see light text and vice-versa.
All in all, it was a real pleasure to work with this theme and I strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a simple portfolio solution. My thanks once more to Greg Ponchak at HorizontalWP.com for providing me with a demo copy of the FLSCR theme.
