I’m looking for minimal designed gridbased gallery without sidebars, but the gallery should be the last blog entries itself: A simple grid of preview (thumbnail) images, which open in a lightbox (like a pop-up to the post ?). Closing the lightbox (post) will return to the current position in the gallery/blog.
Sorry, I’m german and my english is kinda limited…I hope you get the point ?
Are there any blog themes close to common galleries-plugins ?
I don’t like to use a gallery plugin and I don’t need all the special effects of nowadays themes, just a modern fast blog to present my images. And like I said, even no menu or sidebar is required, header and footer would be perfectly adequate.
Any help would be great, many thanks in advance.
Just use default WordPress theme.
The default 23,22,21 themes don’t come with pop-up posts…
You can modify the theme pages to add the popup on default or consider installing a Popup plugin or use Elementor ( Pro )
Thank you for the hints!
Unfortunately, I have no real coding experience and I was not very satisfied with the popup-plugin. Currently there is no spare money to buy and try an elementor abo, too. I was hoping to pay for a simple theme that works straight out of the box or at least with no bigger modifications, but WP is just not meant to be a gallery and galleries-plugins are not made for a very large amount of images and frequent image-sharing…
I wonder why nobody else misses this feature, as it would help orientation / navigation in any blog. However, if anybody knows a grid based theme with pop-up postpages or any other good navigation for one massive large gallery. Please let me know, even if this thread turns very old. I’ll receive a mail and notice it
There may be some themes out there but you need to check/test all of them one by one.
Most of the blogs using “breadcrumb” for navigation. This could be the reason
