Which portfolio theme most user friendly? (7 posts)

    I am having trouble finding a theme for a portfolio that is user friendly. I installed minimatica but have found it too difficult to use. I have now installed Portfolio Press; it says the teme options panel is included but when you go there it redirects you to install another plugin to operate the options. I want something simple, modern with really good instructional support. So far no luck. Looking for suggestions form portfolio users. Thanks

    Are you willing to pay for a premium theme that includes support or just after a free one?

    @premiumwp. Thanks for the reply; would consider paying as long as not too expensive to start with. We had thought it was better to go with free one at first but although think the free wp Minimatica and Portfolio Press look could they do not seem straightforward to use.

    I notice some premium wp themes you have to pay every month. I would prefer to look at sites that you pay an annual or one-off fee that includes all support, one to one preferably not just a forum. Sometimes I find you get no responses in forums, which slows things up ( except of course you have).

    If you don’t mind paying for a theme, there are some really nice, reasonably priced portfolio WordPress themes here.

    @premiumwp Had a look at premium thems;great choice; heard Thesis really powerful for seo etc; but also like look of Richwp themes, Woo Themes- don't know if they include seo and how good?

    Need something that includes options for displaying portfolios too
    Just want to be careful. Read where a few people were unhappy with Headway; some praising WOO and many keen on Thesis. Any take on whether Thesis would be alright for an artist portfolio, niche, monetized site.

    I am reluctant to purchase until I have researched them well enough.
