AutoFocus: A Free Photographers WordPress Theme

AutoFocus WordPress Theme

After a few small GPL issues and some bug fixes, AutoFocus is here! It’s a derivative of Futurosity Aperio Prototype by Robert Ellis. It is designed specifically for photographers looking for a simple and elegant way to display their work online but can also be used as a regular blog. Here’s a short feature list:

  • Images are automatically placed into posts which means you can forget about Custom Fields!
  • Psuedo-Image protection. All of the images are protected from download with an invisible layer of HTML that prevents users from Right Clicking and Saving the image directly. Similar to how flickr does it.
  • 2 Front page layouts. Photo Layout (home.php) and Blog Layout (index.php)

View the Demo, Download, or visit the Theme Page for more info.

    Thanks for the great theme – it looks great!

    I’d like to know how I can remove the meta data information on a post page?

    Hi Allan,

    I-d like to know if it-s possibile to put a button at the end of the page, where one can submit a comment, to go directly to the top…

    Thanks for the great theme!
    Having a small problem.. the thumbnail for the latest post on the home page (first one on the home page) is not aligning with the second post thumbnail.
    Any idea how I could fix that?

    LOVE this theme. I am, however, wondering if you can tell me how to create a sidebar for my links on the site. I see on the wordpress editor options for these, but they do not seem to interact with your theme. What am I doing wrong?

      Hi Shelly,
      It’s all described in the instructions.

    Me again..
    I know you do support customizing..
    I am trying to make the content div wider… it is currently set at 600px correct?
    Would you please just let me know the nave of the css line that controls that?


  7. Posted Jun 29, 2009 at 6:38 pm | Permalink

    I’m thinking to use WP theme for making pages that will be used for Artists. Do you think that customization can be easy done for the novice guys?

    Thanks for this great theme. I really appreciate!

    Hi Allan,

    Firstly can I say a massive THANK YOU ! This is such an elegant theme and as a first time user of WP – this has massively saved my life !

    I have recently started a one photo a day project and your theme has made it all possible – thanks again.

    I have one small problem – EXIF data. Almost all of my posts do not show the EXIF data link, whiolst a handful do. I can’t fathom why this is. Again this may be my naivity with WP – one creating a post I am insert and image and uploading directly from the Browse tool and inserting an image directly to the post. There no text or anything – just the image.

    Can you explain to me how the EXIF link is populated and why it shows on some posts but not others ?


    • Posted Oct 11, 2009 at 1:10 pm | Permalink

      Thanks Alistair,
      Can you send me a link where the EXIF link isn’t working?

    Caroline B,
    When you add an image to the post it automatically creates a custom field with the image source. If you add the image, publish the post, then remove the image from the post it should only show one image. That’s what I did, but I’m sure there is a more concrete way to fix this.

  12. Posted Oct 13, 2009 at 3:38 am | Permalink

    Not sure if this is still looked apon as a support section.

    But I’m trying to customise the theme a bit, and I want to change the number of items displayed in a category, at the moment it is linked to the Settings>Reading>Blog post page number, which is fine for the frontpage where I display only 3 items, but on the category pages I want it to display 10 or so.
    Any idea on how I can go about un-linking this function?

    First.. wonderful theme.
    Works perfectly in Firefox and worked around most of the IE issues except one and it’s making me crazy.
    The next and previous arrows are not in the right place on the single image page. (the don’t show up at all on the home page, but I’ll use pagenavi for now.). Is there a little trick to aligning those arrows around the image in IE (7&8)

    Hey, the front of the Autofocus blog looks great on my iPod, but the photos on a regular browser (safari/firefox) don’t format to the window. What am I doing wrong?

  15. Posted Nov 10, 2009 at 12:43 pm | Permalink

    I’m having trouble modifying the theme editor when trying to remove the meta/efix data from each posted image. I do not want to feature this. can you help me understand what and how to remove.
    Thank you,

    I explain, with photos, exactly how to easily activate or to make the sidebar widgets appear beside posts in the Autofocus WordPress theme in my blog entry here:

    I hope this helps.
