    It’s beautiful portfolio theme with such great features for graphic or photo display. It even has a site logo and social links menu. If I ever do an art blog I’ll choose this theme.

    Can we put a different theme on each page?


  39. Pati Montero

    Absolutely gorgeous theme! And the fact that you are able to set your own logo makes it feel like it’s really yours.

    However (mmm… sorry for that), there’s a small bug. When you resize the browser’s window, at some point you can see the menu overlapping the logo.

    I made a screenshot to give you a better idea. I hope this illustrates it.

    Thanks! I just love it. 🙂


  40. Den Lykkelige Amateur

    What a lovely and clean theme, with just enough quirkiness to give it some extra zing! Well done, it really filled a need for those blogs who need something special that they haven’t found in other themes. Well done. 🙂

    It looks amazing.

    Clean, nice and very expressive.

    Is this theme compatible with the WordAds program?


  44. NW Frame of Mind

    I’ve been looking for a new theme for months and absolutely love Sketch! It’s active on my blog now and I can’t wait to start working with it more tonight to set up a portfolio page and my social media icons. Thanks Caroline!

    Hi Caroline,

    I love your theme, but I have a number of questions about it:

    1) How do you get your menu to be fully visible like in your example and not under a button that just says “Menu?”

    2) How do you get your sidebar to dissappear, like in your example?

    3) How do you get a large featured image with smaller images beneath it, like in your example?




    • Caroline Moore

      Howdy Josh!

      1) The Menu button will automatically appear for screen sizes less than 1280px wide
      2) Go to Appearance → Widgets in your Dashboard to remove any widgets from the sidebar area, and it will automatically display your content full width
      3) You can find out how to set up the Portfolio page template and the slider on the Theme Showcase page.

      I hope this helps, and that you’ll enjoy the theme!

    I want to know how to have social links. Help me! Could you explain a way to do this?

    Does the theme support a tagline under the blog name? I’ve been using it on a second blog since it literally appeared on the WordPress theme page and I love it! Nice design!


  50. Clara Ray Rusinek Klein

    Re Caroline’s comment earlier: 1) The Menu button will automatically appear for screen sizes less than 1280px wide

    So for anything bigger than 1280 the menu items would just appear in a straight line one after the other with no menu button, and the menu button would just disappear? I’ve been trying to get them in a straight line without the menu button but I really couldn’t.

    Just want to make sure.


  51. Kellie

    Already switched! Really lovely theme. I’m wondering how you set your demo to partial or paged feeds though as it isn’t working for me via Dashboard>Settings>Reading. Oh. And can visitors comment or like projects in the portfolio?
