The release of Galleria, a gallery child theme of Hybrid

As the WordPress community grows, so does the amount of available themes. Galleria is a gallery-style child theme for WordPress built on the Hybird theme framework. Originally, this theme was created by Chirs Wallace for the Thematic theme framework and released at Smashing Magazine.

So I am really exited to announce another theme release from WPCult and Frosty Web Designs. A few days back I came across this post at Smashing Magazine.

Just recently we asked you to let us know what theme you would like us to release next. Among numerous comments we found many request for a gallery-theme that could be particularly useful for portfolios and showcases. At the very same time Christopher Wallace has been designing an advanced gallery-WordPress-theme for the design community and Smashing Magazine’s audience. And today finally we are proud to release it – for free, of course.

Well, I really liked this theme, and while I am a big fan of the Thematic theme, I know there are many out there whom love Hybrid. Hybrid is Justin Tadlocks theme framework, which can be downloaded for free at http://themehybrid.com/themes/hybrid.

Just an FYI, this site is running hybrid as a parent theme. :)

So…

I contacted Chris, and told him of this theme port I was going to be doing. After a few days of modifications, bug fixes and styling, the theme is ready for public release.

While Galleria shares a few qualities with his sibling, the differences are notable in the style, color and layout throughout the theme, including the theme options.
