Traveler is a theme designed for people who want to keep a visual diary of their travels. The homepage and archive pages are designed to be quickly scannable so that readers can easily see what the site is about. The post pages are kept intentionally simple to keep people looking at your photos and reading about your journeys.

Full Featured

From the huge header image (comes with three images to choose from – or upload your own), through the custom background, and the widgetized footer – Traveler has all the features you need to customise the theme to work the way you want it to.

Flexible

Whilst Traveler was designed for travel bloggers and diarists – it’s equally comfortable being used as a digital scrapbook or a portfolio.

Your Design, Everywhere

Traveler has been designed to look good on all devices – from desktop computers and laptops, through smartphones and tablets (Android and iOS). Traveler looks awesome everywhere. This is especially useful if you’re travelling and only have your mobile device to hand!

Single Column Layout

The posts and pages on a Traveler site use a single column layout. This brings the focus entirely onto your content and stops people from wandering off elsewhere giving your posts and pages 100% of their attention.

Related Posts

Traveler includes related posts after every post on the site. These are selected from recent posts in the same category and are designed to give your readers somewhere else to go once they finish reading the current post.

Custom Sidebars

Traveler has a custom sidebar in the footer – allowing you to structure content exactly as you wish. This sidebar will display on all pages – as long as there’s some widgets to display. If you remove the widgets then the sidebar will hide entirely.

Quick Specs (all measurements in pixels):

  1. At full width the main column width is 810.
  2. Please keep in mind that this theme is responsive, which means that it changes size as the browser is resized.
  3. The post thumbnails (on the homepage) are 400 pixels wide and will scale the height proportionally.
  4. All featured Images are generated from the same initial image so make sure to keep the focus of the image in the center as the surrounding content may be cropped.

Featured Images

Traveler supports thumbnail images on blog posts. These are known as featured images. To use featured images, what you need to do is edit the post you want to add the featured image to – and then find the box labelled ‘Featured Image’. Click the link titled ‘Set featured image’ and then either select the image or upload a new one using the options provided. Once selected press ‘Set featured image’, then update your post and you’re done. It sounds more long winded than it is – I promise :)

Custom Menus

Traveler has 2 menus available. By default the top menu displays your websites pages and the lower menu displays your websites categories.

You can customise the top menu using the WordPress custom menu functionality. To find out more about how to change the menus you can read the wordpress.com custom menu documentation.

The lower menu is always set to display categories and will display the top 12 categories, sorted by the number of posts in each category.

Custom Header

The background image at the top of every page is controlled with the WordPress custom header functionality. Traveller requires quite a large image since it is shown very big on the homepage of the site.

Because of the way the site is designed it’s likely that some of the header image will be hidden. As such you should ensure important elements like logos are in the middle of the header image. This will make sure they have the greatest chance of being displayed properly.

Footer Widgets

Traveller features a single sidebar – located in the footer. There’s information on the administration of sidebars available here.
