Fhi-zin, free AJAX Wordpress theme template for Portfolio and Photography
October 28th, 2008
Fhi-zin is one of the best Wordpress themes for Portfolio and Photography websites on the web, and with its unique design it doesn’t even look like a Wordpress website ! On top of that, its completely driven by an AJAX engine, is Googlefriendly, SEO-optimised and capable of attaching an unlimited amount of images on each post.
Fhi-zin will most likely be used for portfolio sites and photography galleries which will use Wordpress as a CMS-system. The possibility of attaching an unlimited amount of high-resolution images to each post can be used to create a separate gallery from each post in your Wordpress site, which you can group in the standard Wordpress categories. There is no maximum dimension size for these images, but if you pick large dimensions some users may have problems viewing the images since they dont fit on their screen. If you keep the dimensions smaller than 1000×700 things should be fine :)
Apart from the unlimited images, you can define external links and downloadable files for each post too. There is a live demo available for you, and the theme is up for download on Wordpress.org.
When the theme is activated, there will be an information page available in your Wordpress administration. This can be very usefull for adding images and links. If you still have some questions or remarks, please post them here.
For all users who want scrollbars in the post/page content text, I’ve made a modified theme which includes scrollbars. You can download it here. If you already uploaded the Fhi-zin theme, you just need to replace the files “style.css”, “single.php” and “js/main.js”.
Please beware that if you use this theme it is provided as-is and I won’t provide any support nor do bug fixes if there are any. The theme was released two years ago, I’ve put a lot of time and effort in this theme since but do not longer have the time to continue. When I have more time I’ll do my best to create a better Fhi-zin theme for WordPress and Drupal.
Comments from the release time are no longer visible because the page was getting too long (400+ comments). Caused browser crashes.
A lot of people remove the copyright notice and then ask for help, it’s pretty demotivating for us developers if we see people are stealing our work and claiming it as their own. Please don’t do that :)
- To put text on the home page: select the ‘home’ theme for your page.
- Small images are not showing up: retype the custom fields key, do not copy. There’s an issue with the charset on some computers, the ‘x’ in the key is a different character when copied. This confuses WordPress and it won’t see your image.
