Tripod – Professional WordPress Photography Theme
Tripod is a responsive drag-and-drop layout builder WordPress theme intended to power professional photographer’s blogs or sites coming with complex image gallery options.
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 a 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 Mainpage layout
Default that is assigned for your Archives by date, Post format, Post type, Attachment, Author, Categories,Tags, Search layouts, etc.
Posts that are 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, Login menu, Slideshow, Widgets, etc
Thus, the general rule for Templates is to divide content into areas and add desired elements in custom places at the user´s will.
Multiple layouts – Timeline view, list view, grid view, masonry view, thumbnail view
You can have multiple blog layouts: grid view, thumbnails view, mosaic, or list view, and choose between the image resize method: resize or crop.
