Photography Core



Photographers simply want to have a nice portfolio with WordPress, with a beautiful theme, possibly linked to Lightroom, without spending too much time on the technical details. This is why Photography Core was made. It is possible to switch between any theme using the Photography Core and everything will still work, automatically. No need to work on the new theme every time. Everything in this plugin is light, efficient, but try to cover every part required by most photography websites.

There arent many downloads or reviews because this plugin is actually part of the architecture of themes, so its probably not a plugin you would like just to download by itself. But you could, and develop your own theme on it.

  • Shortcodes (the same as for the Gutenberg Blocks)
  • Seamless integration with WP/LR Sync (Lightroom)
  • Works with Polylang
