Article written by the awesome Team Excess on the 29 Aug 2010

It’s no surprise that so many people are using Obox for their Wordpress templates these days, the Hout Bay boys are killing it! I’ve been using Obox for…well forever, 2oceansvibe Radio are using Obox, Cape Town Girl…everyone loves some Obox. For those of you wanting to start a photography blog, Photolist is the latest from Obox and it is once again, some more awesomeness. Let’s check the beast out:

The Home Page

On the home page, I really dig the slider at the top, where you can scroll through some selected galleries, ones that you may want to feature prominently on the site.


So you click through to a set of photos, and that brings you to a page where you can click individual photos, and they are enlarged at the top of the gallery, like this:

Very, very cool! If I were a photographer (Not to say I’m not!) I’d be using this theme right away. No messing about with these free themes that some people use, what is this, home school? Photolist is perfect for photographers wanting to offer an online gallery for their work, without paying some ridiculous price for web design.

I use Obox for a couple of reasons:

  • Design. I find some theme designs too ‘perfect’ shall we say. Almost too clinical. Obox themes have a certain flair and alternative feel to them, focusing on minimalism a lot of the time. I always feel that content is what makes a blog, and this is true on all blogs. Obox just package that content in a very streamlined look that I love. And all their themes are compatible with all modern web browsers.
  • Price. $30 for two Obox themes? You cannot go wrong.
  • Support. The support from Obox is amazing, post a question to the forums, and the guys will get back to you quickly, with the right answers. I’ve never had a hassle with Obox.
  • Themes for people who just want to publish. Whenever I chat to people, they assume that I know everything about how a website works. The truth is, I have no idea! Obox themes are for people who want to publish content quickly and easily. You don’t have to delve into the code to install Google Analytics or your logo. Adding and removing adverts is made simple, and can be done by anyone. I’ve had people ask me how their themes work (Bought from other companies, Studio Press being an example) and some of these themes are a nightmare to try and figure out. Not with Obox. Everything is simple and straight forward, leaving you with time to blog, not browse through code and manuals on how your theme works.

So if you’re looking to start a blog, or are just looking for a fresh new theme, then have a look at Obox themes. And take advantage of their 2 for 1 offer, two themes for the price of one. That’s 2 themes for $30!
