Review : Pinboard WordPress Theme from Themify is a pinterest style blog theme made of dynamic featured grid layout as you may have seen on Pinterest profile board. You must have seen many other blog templates in the market like tumblr style themes, traditional themes but what sets Pinboard theme apart from them is dynamic grid layout. Let me explain you what is it exactly, well having responsive WordPress blogging theme with dynamic grid can adjust on small mobile screens or big desktop PC screens. At the same time it automatically add / remove number of grid columns according to layout. For e.g. it may only display 1 or 2 featured columns for small screens and on tablet wide screen it may display 4 or more screens. Hence readers are always given best content browsing experience while coming from any devices.
Pinboard Installation Process : Well, setup process for this professional Pinterest WordPress template is same as you would setup all other themes. Still if you are new to WordPress then you must know how to setup it. Either you can upload theme archive file from FTP to Themes folder located under WP-Content, this is a bit lengthy process and not used most of the time. Second way is to upload theme from WordPress dashboard which is easy, just access WP sidebar menu options and find Appearance > Themes. From these areas you will find option to browse theme from your PC and once it is uploaded you will see theme in the current themes list. Now it’s time to hit Activate button and your website will be running with the selected theme.
