New Theme: Ideation & Intent

It’s almost June and warm weather is spreading across many parts of the world like wildfire! What better time to get out of the house and explore new places? Before you leave, though, it would be a great idea to take your camera along to document the experience.

When you return and get the urge to share you photos with the world, there’s no better place to do it than right here on WordPress.com. We’ve put together a brand-new theme that will showcase your photographs in style!

Ideation & Intent, designed by Kevin Conboy, is our latest free theme and features beautiful typography, bright colors and clean lines. Your photos will get the royal treatment in the featured post area and custom image sidebar.

    Awesome! I love it. It’s great to see that WP.com has been catering to photographers of late, in terms of new themes and other features. I run a blog with my artwork on a self-hosted WP install, and I already had plans of migrating to WP.com If I do so, this theme is surely gonna be the one I use.

    Ideation & Intent – I even like the name of it. Alas, I only days ago changed my theme. People will think I’m schizophrenic if I do it tooooo often :) This one’s great for the photo bloggers out there – and there are MANY! I love, genuinely love, seeing the photo blogs having photos from other parts of the world. If I were one of them, I’d go for this. I swear, I don’t know how you guys think up so many DIFFERENT styles, but cheers.

    I think that maybe summer photos will match the theme’s bright colors.

    I’m already using it on my iPhotojourney.wordpress.com blog, I love it!!! Only the max posts shown (stated as 7) is not working properly. The theme shows all the posts.

      Hello! Glad to hear that you like the theme :) What you are experiencing is a result of our Infinite Scroll feature which allows posts to be automatically loaded as you scroll down the page. It saves your visitors from have to click links to get to the next page on your blog.

    I’m trying to build a family blog/scrapbook cataloging the progress on the log home we are building on a lake. I want to show everything from clearing the land, the construction and final finishes … docks, decks, etc. This theme would allow me to use one sidebar for collages as you’ve done here and the other for the feature photos. Also the third column on the right would track/archive the months it’s going to take to get the project done. Kudos!

    Yes!!! I switched to this new theme the day it was introduced. What a difference it makes regarding my story set-up and photos. In fact, I am more determined to shoot better photos after seeing how well they are displayed on this site. Thanks Michael Fields and WordPress for keeping our world fresh and moving forward.

    I’m using it on my travel blog http://travelingepic.com and it’s great! It took some work to start featuring photos. I was using LiveWriter for blogging and it wasn’t adding the images in a way that they were displayed well, so it took some work, but I’ve gotten lots of comments from friends they like the new theme and layout.

    Wonderful for photos, is it being used for blogs with a wider content like mine?

      Most of the blogs I have seen it used with are pretty photo-heavy, but that should not be a deterrent for blogs that contain mainly words. I checked out your site and it looks like you like to post poems. This theme could work really well for you. The picture above only shows the home page template. Once you click through to a post you will be able to see all of it’s content. Please see this demo page.

    It is really almost perfect theme for my photoblog! Font is very nice and readable BUT with problems – limited support for czech characters (ěščřžýáíéůúťďň / ĚŠČŘŽÝÁÍÉŮÚŤĎŇ … etc)?

    Love this theme and I really love what you titled it. Any pointers on loading pictures with writing? I click, new blog, write a little, insert pic, and repeat on the same blog. It looks great however, when I hit publish it smushes pictures side by side, moves my writing and basically scrambles everything!! What I want is simple, picture with a little writing under it..Thank you in advance for any advice!
