Recently I’ve been getting a lot of questions on what theme I am using on my wordpress blog. I figure I would put something together again and give you guys my current experience since the last time I blogged about them. You can read that posted here Review: ProPhoto 3 Blog v3 Theme.
ProPhoto Blogs is what I am using. Of course there are many other themes out there. and I am sure they are great. Personally I like ProPhoto Blogs a lot. It’s clean; Easy to navigate. Some might say it looks like what everyone else are using. Well, I will say this. I rather the viewer be familiar with a theme they’ve seen, and know their way around then something that will take them years to find the link to check out the gallery. As a regular surfer, I dont like to spend more then 10 seconds to locate a link or trying to figure out a way to get to the next page. I’ve seen some bad ones out there.
I got a $10 off ProPhoto Blogs discount code JOHNLO864 for you to use.
When I decided to use www.john-lo.com as a blog site for 2010. I wanted to look somewhat different then when I had my blog at http://www.johnlophotography.com/blog (I was using the DWF Photographer Theme). I had a few photog friends, including my good bubby William Eng, who was using the theme/template from ProPhoto Blogs. I really like what I saw and the features that came with to help make the site easier to post, edit, upload, and blah blah blah. I might be good at created website and coding back in the days. Right now, I just don’t have the free time to do it anymore. Anyway, just so happen when I was thinking about using them, they announced the release of Version 3. After doing a quick research and saw the demo and photos few days after the release. I am now a happy ProPhoto Blogs user. YAY!! So far I only ran into one problem with the contact page. It kept telling me “Not Found” after the submit button is press. I didn’t really look into it much. Didn’t bother contacting Prophoto blogs or my web hosting. (I think its my web hosting problem) I just didn’t have the time. So I hurry and put on my thinking cap on and created a contact page instead of using the one from Prophoto blogs. I wonder how many inquiries I’ve lost because of it?!?! Oh well.
The layout is pretty much the default that came with the template. I did make some changed with the colors so it would go with my style, mood and my logo.
If you are interested using them, please use my discount code. You will get $10 off.
The discount code for the ProPhoto Blogs is JOHNLO864
Here’s a little vid clip from ProPhoto Blogs.
. Fact: if your REAL name isn’t John Lo, then why are you using JohnLo Photography as your business name? I just don’t get it.
