Phototastic: A Premium Photography WordPress Theme

ThemeSnack — our sister site — announced the availability of Phototastic, a new premium WordPress theme for photographers, designers, illustrators and any other creative people wanting to show off their work in a highly visual way.  Phototastic’s sleek and modern design allows users to showcase their work on a beautiful, interactive canvas.


Photostatic is a dark photo-centric theme with many built-in plugins and customizations.  The dark canvas of the theme’s layout allows users to feature their photos and portfolio items in a way that accentuates the unique colors of the images.  Phototastic also provides a generous amount of features including a dynamic featured slider, visual dropdowns, beautiful gallery views, informative detail view, contact form styling and a custom admin panel.

You can customize anything from the logo to choosing a highlight color with a hex color picker. There are also two category template styles to choose from: a blog style and a gallery style.

    Will you fix the permalink issue with this theme? If you run any permalink structure but the default category views will not display content. I think working with pretty permalinks is a must must for any modern wp theme.

    Looks awesome. I’d love to see an answer to the comment before mine… I also use pretty permalinks, and this would definitely be a deciding factor in purchasing this theme! Thanks.

    I bought this theme today and was very excited to start populating my new site with posts and images when I realised that none of the lightbox, colorbox plugins seem to work properly. Colorbox works but disables the home page featured slide show when enabled. Please get back to me regarding this issue because this doesn’t quite qualify as a premium theme if thumbnails link to images directly! Very disappointed!

    Just purchased this theme and have all kind of problems with it probably related to permalinks. Can’t recommend it.

    Can’t get the gallery images to display, any ideas?

    I haven’t touched the code ever and suddenly this week I get this error message:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /home/content/b/k/a/bkatec/html/wp-content/themes/phototastic_theme/footer.php on line 176
