While this blog runs on MovableType, I’ve had a few people ask if my Photography section was a blog and if the theme was available.
The photography section is run with MovableType, and the template is not that easy to export. With that I created a simple WordPress theme based upon it. It’s a unique horizontal scrolling blog used to feature photos. In my case I have a Flickr account, but I wanted to draw attention to just a few of my photos, hence the sub-blog.
The theme is very basic, it doesn’t offer comments or many other blog functions…it’s mostly meant to use WordPress as a simple CMS to manage the display of some photos.
The easiest thing I’ve found to do is copy/paste the Flickr embed code for the image in the body of the post. The width of each picture element is designed for the medium size photo (usually 500 pixels wide).
Since you can’t run multiple blogs off a single WordPress install you’ll need to create a separate directory/install for a photo gallery. Of course you’re free to hack around with this, edit the styles, etc. Enjoy!
