Down Under WordPress Theme

5.0 Avg. Rating [1 Vote]

Down Under was made to be unique. The designer decided he wanted to make something very different from all the other WordPress themes. One thing that makes this theme stand out is the way the post summaries are shown on the homepage. A photo can be uploaded with each post that is automatically cropped and resized to service as each summary frames itself. Something else unique is the menu which sticks to the bottom of the page and remains present no matter how far you scroll. This theme is geared toward photographers and is especially well suited for photoblogging.
