Shades of Gray

(6 votes, average rating: 4.67 out of 5)


Shades of Gray is one of my favorite WordPress themes. Its dark background and relatively wide blog area make it perfect for photography or travel blogs and websites. I made it for my travel blog, then I decided to release it here for everybody who needs an elegant photography site or online portfolio. Like all other themes here, it is made with HTML5. The layout has a fixed width, it doesn’t change with the screen size.

Basic features:

  • Customizable background: yes (just upload your background image from the WordPress admin dashboard)
  • Sidebar widgets: yes
  • Footer widgets: yes (three positions)
  • Custom menus: yes (one position, replacing the default WordPress menu)
  • Threaded comments: yes
  • Drop-down menu: yes
  • Colors: dark, shades of gray with blue accents

Premium features (included in the free theme):

  • On-page SEO properly done, so you have better chances to rank for relevant keywords and get more traffic to your website
  • Thumbnails on front page and in the “Latest Articles” sidebar widget (if selected as featured images when writing your posts)
  • Custom-styled image gallery (the default light gray border has been replaced with the custom style of the theme)
  • Bigger images are automatically scaled down to fit the blog post area
