Since I abandoned my one-page design years ago I’ve powered my site with WordPress. A lot of other people have too, and WordPress sites have evolved to look the same, with a platform that is slightly bloated.
Those problems led me to believe that other people probably felt the same way that I did, so I created Futch for me, and them/you. Cruise around the demo site site to see. It’s a photo blog format, with a minimalist focus (no comments). I’m really proud of the image gallery integration, using WordPress’ default Add Media option. It lays things out really well. Here’s a link to a demo page that has tons of images, but the layout was all done within WordPress. There are no dependent plugins involved, just some suggested WordPress settings (mostly media sizes – bigger is better). That stuff is explained here.
Futch is available in my Shop and on Creative Market for $25 (license for 1 site).
