Ready-Made WordPress Photography Blog + Support

BlogResponsivefreelancerPortfoliophotographyphotographerDark

This is a ready-made WordPress photography blog, not a premium demo theme.

This blog is suitable for photography bloggers, where you can present your work and also blog about your passion in a professional way!

Everything's Already Set Up

The WordPress photography blog already has everything installed, configured, and optimized:

  • WordPress;
  • Theme;
  • Plugins that include security, SEO, performance, and more;
  • Design improvements.

The only thing remaining is to change several domain-specific features (e.g. titles, email) pointed out in my guide, and to replace the dummy content with your own content. I'll send you the guide once you've purchased the plan.

Theme

For this blog, I used a free theme called Photo Journal, which is specially designed for photographers. The theme is created by Catch Themes, which is a well-reviewed and well-established WordPress development studio.

The theme allows you to set up portfolios, testimonials, services, featured content, and more.

You can upgrade the theme anytime for even more features.

The theme has good documentation and also comes with free support on its support forum!

Plugins

Multiple plugins are installed and configured. The plugins handle things like spam, security, performance, SEO, and more!

  • Yoast SEO - Optimizes your blog for search engines (e.g. Google);
  • iThemes Security - secures your blog;
  • W3 Total Cache - a caching plugin that improves your site's performance/loading time;
  • WP Smush - compresses your image automatically on upload to further improve the blog's performance/loading time. It also offers a lazy loading feature;
  • WPForms Lite - a drag-and-drop form builder used for the Contact page;
  • WP Revisions Control - limits the number of revisions that WordPress saves in the database, preventing bloat;
  • Spam Destroyer - a very simple, yet very good anti-spam plugin;
  • Redirection - used to redirect URLs, preventing broken links that can affect user experience and SEO;
  • UpdraftPlus - creates backups manually or automatically;
  • myStickymenu - makes the menu sticky, making it available to readers while they scroll up and down;
  • Q2W3 Fixed Widget - makes a widget sticky, making it available to readers while they scroll up and down;
  • Cookie Notice for GDPR - adds a cookie notice at the top or bottom of your blog, letting E.U. readers know that your blog uses cookies;
  • Remove Footer Credit - used to edit the copyright footer;
  • Simple Lightbox - allows visitors to open images in a lightbox, making it easier to browse through them;
  • MC4WP: Mailchimp for WordPress - adds a subscription form on your blog based on the Mailchimp emailing service;
  • Add Admin CSS - lets you add custom CSS code for the admin area. Used it to fix a bug;
  • Catch Gallery - an in-house plugin that allows you to add three different types of layouts (in addition to the default layout provided by WordPress – Thumbnail Grid) for your galleries: tiled mosaic, square tiles, circles;
  • Catch Breadcrumb - an in-house plugin that lets you display breadcrumb navigation on your site;
  • Essential Content Types - an in-house plugin that allows you to feature content through different content/post types on your blog (e.g. Portfolio);
  • Social Gallery and Widget - an in-house plugin that allows you to display your Instagram feed directly on your blog via widget or shortcode. You can also show your Instagram feed in a post or page;
  • To Top - an in-house plugin that allows the visitors to easily scroll back to the top of the page.

The theme also recommends using other plugins that they developed, such as Catch IDs or Catch Infinite Scroll, but they are currently deleted. If you think one of them will be useful, you can install them from the theme's notification box found in the admin dashboard.

Improvements and Fixes

Added some CSS code to:

  • center-align Instagram embeds;
  • change the contact form's button color;
  • fix a bug where the editor was using the theme's dark background.
