AutoFocus+ Now Available


A new and vastly improved version of AutoFocus is now available at my professional design & devleopment site

Here’s a brief description:

In short, AutoFocus+ is a clean and simple WordPress theme developed for photographers looking to showcase their work. A slight departure from the original verision, AutoFocus+ takes things a bit further by providing stronger markup, better browser support, and Theme options that enable you to customize various elements of the theme without ever touching code. I’ve also ported over the back-end to Thematic, one of (if not) the strongest WordPress theming frameworks to date. That means AutoFocus+ and Thematic come together to make for a pretty slick theme that can be used for almost any type of site. There’s both a Free version and a Pro version($15) available which comes with tons of new and ever developing features.

Speaking of  features, here’s a few notable ones:

  1. 5 widgetized sidebar areas.
  2. Fully configurable color options through an admin options page.
  3. An optional EXIF data display.
  4. An optional Featured Posts section which pulls “sticky” posts and displays them front and center.
  5. Much improved CSS styles for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, & Internet Explorer (including the dreaded IE6!).
  6. An admin configurable logo option (Pro Version only).
  7. A per-post sliding Gallery (Pro Version only).
  8. And tons more…

I hope you like it!

    Autofocus theme is really great but I’m new in wordpress and blogs so I can’t figured out how it works this “optional Featured Posts section which pulls “sticky” posts and displays them front and center”
    I’ve already made a few pots “sticky” at publish settings but I can see just the last pots.

    Wow, this came out of nowhere :)
    Great update to an already great theme. Licensed the pro version and updated my photoblog today. Awesome functionality now, I love it.
    Just one thing I can’t seem to find in the code… where can I customize my RSS feed link to use my feedburner link?

      Hi Marc, There are many plugins that can do that for you without dealing with the code.

    Plugins, of course. I should have thought of that ;)
    Thanks for reminding Alan. All set now!

    I’ve bought the pro version of this, and it’s great.

    I don’t seem to get the images exported in the RSS feed though – can you confirm that it should…in which case it must be something I’ve done.

      Hi Mike,
      I’m not sure how well Feed Burner will play with AF+, which is what you seem to be using for your feed. I have some custom scripts for the feed and I’ve only made sure it works with the default WP feed.

      Images export just fine for me via feedburner. No issues here, they did also export fine via regular WP feed.

        I have deactivated all plugins and put the unmodified autofocus+ as the theme, just to make sure, and looking at the original feed ( there are no images in the feed.

        If I put a photo in the post (instead of just leaving it as attached), then the image shows up in the feed. Of course, I now get 2 images on my post page!

        The problem appears to be that whatever process displays an attached image on the page, does not publish to the RSS feed.

        I’m intrigued that others say it works for them. Can anyone shed some light on this?

          Just wanted to add Allan explained what I was doing wrong and I get images in my RSS now.

          It’s a great theme, and I’m really pleased with it.

    Saw you at WordCamp and I’ve loved this theme for a long time, didn’t know you were behind it.
