Welcome to the private homepage of Johannes Jarolim, Salzburg, Austria, Europe. Willkommen auf der privaten Homepage von Johannes Jarolim, Salzburg, Österreich.

Since there’s a growing community of YAPB-Users maintaining and posting on beautiful photoblogs, it was only a matter of time until the first YAPB-Ready WordPress themes would appear. Beside of creating some themes on my own (just need some time for that), my intention is to publish links to all available YAPB-ready-themes on this page:

YAPB Ready WordPress Themes


Author: Mac

Type: Classical photoblog, dark

The first released YAPB theme: Grain. A very nice classical photoblog theme with a homepage presenting the latest image. Does have an image-mosaic feature (like my one ;-) ). Very straight layout accenting the image and not distracting the visitors eye through graphical tinsel. I do highly recommend it.


Author: Fran Simó

Type: Base Theme, dark

The second theme i’ve found: The phT Theme from Fran Simó. According to the author it’s a base theme that you can take to develop your own style.


Author: Kim Nørgaard

Type: Classical photoblog, bright

The third theme in the collection: Monolit from Kim Nørgaard. I do like light and straight themes very much – A pitty it doesn’t support exif. Nevertheless a very nice theme for photographers. Thumbs up!

Type: Classical photoblog, dark

This one will get some attention for sure: Reflection by dave. Pro: Very nice and clear dark theme pimped up with stylish JavaScript reflections. Con: Doesn’t look exactly the same in IE as stated out on daves todo list. Maybe someone out there helping him with that small issue?

Type: Classical photoblog, light gray

A very straight and elegant photoblog theme: Elegance.  The theme is presenting the latest image in a modern web 2.0 style.

Type: Magazine style home, Classical photoblog single page

Fresh new idea to present photos: A magazine-style homepage featuring some images – If you click on them, you land on a classical photoblog page featuring the single image. I like that idea very much!

You have a YAPB-Ready-Theme?

Just drop a note to the forum or a comment to this page and i’ll include it in the list.
Please make sure to include the used version of YAPB with your templates .zip so users may even use it if i’d decide to implement big changes in newer versions.

Happy photoblogging!

    Since you are mentioning themes that use the plugin, you should make a not that the Grain theme doesn't work properly. It hasn't been updated for a few Wordpress versions, hence it doesn't display as it should. For instance it doesn't display images who are supposed to make rounded corners etc. There is no support for the theme either, as far as I can tell.

    I am using another theme which I don't see displayed here. Its called Phologgin'.

    We currently use elegant grunge theme for our blog but naturally have loads of pictures and wondered about your plugin. Is it plugin friendly for your YAPB plugin? Thank you.

    With upgrade to Wordpress 3.5, the RSS with embedded images seems to have broken. Anybody experiencing the same?

    This template / plugin might be interesting for me!
    I work on a new site, using the 2013 Orange Sequence theme. I have more or less finished it. The site has several pages, among which the static frontpage with an introduction and the posts page.

    The posts page is meant to be used by visitors who can upload their photos to my site. To achieve this I need an easy accessible image uploader for my visitors at the frontend of the website.

    This means I have two questions for you:
    a. Can YAPB do that for me?
    b. Is my theme (2013 Orange Sequence) YAPB ready?

    Ich bedanke mich im Voraus.
