New Themes: Sidespied and Chronicle

Today, we have two great themes for you. Chronicle is a premium magazine theme and Sidespied is a portfolio-focused free theme.

We have two great themes for you today: one free and one premium.



Chronicle is a premium magazine theme by Pro Theme Design with three optional widget areas, featured posts, and a large homepage slider. Chronicle offers lots of options for creating interesting, immersive websites  —  perfect for sites with lots of categories and content.



Sidespied, designed in-house by yours truly, is portfolio-focused and based on the popular Espied theme. This theme focuses on your image content making it stand out no matter what device your audience is using. Not only does it take full advantage of the new portfolio custom post type, it also looks great being used on a blog.

    Sidespied would make a great portfolio theme! I might have to try it.

    Sidespied is very nice, I think I may try it later on, thanks for presenting these themes to us :D

    Cool theme I may need to check this out!

    I like Chronicle! Can it be customized to include only 2 or 3 columns rather than 4? I don’t see this addressed on the theme page. Thanks!

    I am curious about Sidespied. My blog does not have many pictures and videos. I was more concerned about how it displays on mobile devices. This seems to fit the bill. I have to try it out. Thanks

    Affff, again, free themes go on bad. You want to obligate bloggers to accept potfolios’ themes. Portfolios are fully of bugs, mislaid, horrible. Again, I thought I’d open this link and find a good and free theme, after so much time.

      We do our best to offer a range of different free themes and we’re constantly adding to them. Sidespied also works well for just a blog, having the portfolio is optional.

    I had asked before: whe don’t you state in your new post announcements wheter they are premium or free.

  14. The Machinist

    Ηello! Great themes both of them. But we need more free themes with slider. :)

  15. niemolens

    As to my earliet reply, I am sorry for my oversight, it is all there, you do mention Premium and protfolio base Free themes.

    I have a short story blog that does not use pics and I find all WordPress themes very biased towards images. At present I use Manifest, which is good for text but not the best. I find both these themes very smart but I would really like something more ‘text-y’ in nature.

    The only issue I have found with sidespied is all the dead space on the right with the free version. I really liked it for my photography page but with the menu button on the upper left and all the space on the right it just didn’t work for me.

    I really really love the SideSpied theme, I’m using it at: – looks good & works the way I want. BUT! There’s a problem with the portfolio shortcode – it doesn’t appear to be working correctly for a front page with only featured images – I keep getting on the front page a non-necessary error message: “Your Portfolio Archive currently has no entries. You can start creating them on your dashboard.” How can I get rid of this? … thanks for any info you can give me on this …

  19. karensfotoblog

    I found the answer by searching the forums – must leave out the portfolio shortcode altogether, then the front page display works right. My new blog looks great! – and I really like SideSpied, it gives me the functionality I was hoping for.

    I like two themes, very nice
    And how can I be a member of this team? That means I can do theme design, How can I work with you? How is this achieved? Please guide me.
