Myth, WordPress Photography Portfolio Grid Theme
Myth is a Gutenberg supported theme with a perfect five star rating. That’s just for starters. It’s also a WooCommerce theme, it’s got a great looking grid theme layout that gives you the flexibility to set up different grid looks for your home page, for categories pages and author archives. You’ll have full control over your featured images that help promote your posts and pages.
Creative, well organized and modern, Emily Nolan is a solid choice for photographers who want a WordPress theme with all the critical bells and whistles to make a really memorable website. You get a couple different color schemes, a dark version and a light version, helpful plugin support, clean and well documented code, simple, responsive design, full support for the most popular social media networks, image sliders and a lot more. Emily Nolan still has a perfect 5 star rating too, which is a great sign that the code, the support and the features are all up to snuff.
MF is one of the most highly respected themes ever made for WordPress. I had to double check, because last time I looked, MF still had a perfect rating of 5 stars. Looks like one person has finally decided to give it a 4 star rating, so it’s dropped all the way down to 4.99 overall. Not too bad. No matter what it’s rating is, MF is a premium quality theme that has a ton of flexibility, particularly for creative portfolios. That’s why it’s in this collection, after all. MF is a true multipurpose theme, it works with WooCommerce, it’s got dozens of premade demo styles to choose from and the developer will even install the MF theme for you if you want, which is a really cool feature for beginners.
