New Theme: Museum

As you have learned during New Media Production class, WordPress Themes become outdated with technology changes happening frequently. So, a good rule of thumb is to change Themes from time to time to have the latest technology capabilities at your finger tips. This may need to be done every one to two years. Here is a new theme to showcase photographs, drawings or illustrations.

We’re excited to introduce Museum, a new free theme!

Created by WordPress.com’s own Kelly Dwan and Mel Choyce, Museum is crafted to showcase your best photographs, drawings, or illustrations. Featuring elegant, museum-inspired typography and ample room for your images, Museum pays special attention to category and media attachment pages to help your collections shine. Image posts are organized into collections by adding them to the same category so you can proudly show them off. Media attachment pages are also designed with care, displaying all of your media’s details in a thoughtful manner and allowing you to link to individual attachment pages with pride. Check out an example!

Learn more about Museum at the Theme Showcase, or preview it by going to Appearance → Themes.
