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.

Theme developers take note:
If you have a photoblog and choose a theme like Cubic your site shouldn’t look like this.
Thanks for the bug report, Matt :). We’ve implemented a fallback for featured images in Cubic to help with its initial display.
Can someone tell me how to properly pronounce Thomas’ last name “Guillot”?
I am making a short screencast about this post and these two themes and want to say it correctly;)
Hey Adam – it’s pronounced kind of like Toe-MAH Ghee-OWE. “Ghee” like the Indian clarified butter. The “s” in Thomas is not pronounced. Let me know if that helps. 🙂
By the way, that’s really cool – could you link to the screencast when you’re done? Thank you!
Sure thing Kathryn, hoping to get it up later today.
I love both of these themes so much!
Here’s a video walkthrough of Boardwalk and Cubic and why we think they’re a great fit for our users.
