Sobe was inspired by the popularity of one of my other themes, Pachyderm. I wanted to create a theme with a similar look and feel in a more updated style. The color palette was drawn from a trip to South Beach, Miami–hence, the theme name.
Adding widgets turns Sobe’s single-column layout into a two-column format; Sobe also supports a site logo upload with the Jetpack plugin. Get aquainted with Sobe by visiting the demo site or take it for a spin by downloading it from the theme repo.
Two fresh photoblogging themes crafted by Automattic’s Thomas Guillot are now available to download in the WordPress.org theme directory.
Boardwalk features an unconventional horizontal-scrolling blog stream and large portrait-oriented featured images, as seen on the demo site. A child theme of Boardwalk, Cubic showcases square featured images in a large grid layout. Check out the demo site to see how the theme makes the most of strong photos.
