New Theme: Modularity Lite

Grab your extra-large images and check out today’s new theme, Modularity Lite. If you want a photo blog or portfolio site our one-hundredth theme might be the perfect thing for you. Let’s take a look at it.

The Modularity Lite Theme

If you’re attaching large images (950 pixels by 425 pixels and up) to your posts you can turn on the optional home page slideshow in Appearance → Theme Options. Modularity Lite grabs the first large image attachment from your most recent posts and turns them into a dynamic, full-width slideshow.

Also available from the Theme Options page: a welcome message you can enable on the home page just above the slideshow and a checkbox for making Modularity Lite a full-width, no-sidebar theme.

Modularity Lite Theme Options

We’ve also made sure that Modularity Lite is really customizable. There’s a Custom Header (950 pixels by 200 pixels), Custom Background, and a fully-widgetized footer at the bottom of every page. Check out the Modularity Lite demo and take a closer look.

Designed by Graph Paper Press, Modularity Lite is now available for WordPress.com and, for self-hosted WordPress.org sites, from the WordPress.org Themes Directory.

    Now this i like! This will work like gangbusters for a unique ‘Business picture blog’ I’ve been ruminating on. Soon, with your help, I’ll rule the world of ‘Graphic Business Pictures for Education in Zimbabwe’. Ok, so maybe it’s a small niche, but still!

    Thanks for making it possible!

    I really like the slide shows. I would like to see more of those. Are older themes typically updated? I like Vigilance which I am using and would love to see updates to it as opposed to switching around.

      We do indeed update older themes (Vigilance has customizable menus now, for example) but header slideshows will probably remain a theme-specific feature. That said, if you like slideshows you should check out our new slideshow shortcode for sharing photos in a post.

    I love darker colored themes as they’re easier on the eyes and take less energy to display. My current theme (Motion) is very nice except that it doesn’t have a large photo header like this.
