About Zen: Responsive, Slick, Minimal Portfolio
Zen is my first portfolio theme, after hanging a while with BuddyPress and such. And yes, I took the time to put up something special for all of you, my awesome customers.
This theme is responsive, slick, minimalist portfolio theme which will help you showcase your work in a clean and elegant fashion.
I took my time on this one, so it comes with a handful set of options, like: Responsive Layout, swift AJAX enhancement of Portfolio Items on the Homepage, Portfolio Items support for both Images, Slideshow & Embedded Videos, multiple Post Formats (Audio Self-Hosted, Video Embedded or Self-Hosted, Standard, Image) and more stuff which is waiting for you to discover.
You can edit the amount of items shown on homepage via Theme Options Panel. You can choose between sliding the items, or just show the desired amount without any sliding action. Everything is at your fingertips!
Go ahead, take it for a spin and see what this awesome portfolio theme is about.

Need theme support?
Jump into the comments section, or drop me a e-mail via my Profile. Tell me what you’ve dreamt last night, ask me your questions, I’m here to answer.
Do I have to memorize shortcodes?
No, you’ll never memorize shortcodes using our theme. We’re not a fan of 1000+ shortcodes. We’ve included shortcodes for Alerts, Buttons, Columns, Tabs, Toggles. We kept the rule of KISS (Keep it simple stupid). No, everything should be pretty easy for the user to use. Zen has a custom Shortcode Generator, which enables to preview the end result, while you’re crafting the shortcode. How about that? Everything is easy peasy!
We tried to make the adding of portfolio items, for the beloved artists here, a breeze. Videos and Images are supported in portfolio items. You can add extra details about your clients, to spice things up a bit. The Portfolio page is sortable out of the box, and you’ll love fiddling with the built in portfolio sorter from the backend. This way, you’ll always display what you want at the top of the portfolio page. That 3 year old item can now stand next to the freshly baked item now.
Unbranded White Label Admin
Zen is using an unbranded theme options panel, the kind of theme options you’ll love to show your clients : simple, yet effective. No unnecessary options included. We’ve kept it to the bare minimum.
Want Pricing Tables?
We do recommend the following plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pricetable/. It’s amazing, and free.
Want unlimited Sidebars?
There are many plugins out there for adding multi-sidebar support. A lot of developers just copy the plugins code into their themes to add the feature, but we think it’s best you use the plugin so that you receive update notifications and you always have the latest version. How about that mates? Here is one example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sidebar-generator/
We’ve got it all set up. Zen works on all major browsers as intended: Chrome, Safari, Opera, Firefox, IE9 . With the rise of HTML5 and CSS3 , it’s tough for older browsers to keep up with the trend. Basic IE8 support has been included. Oh, and by the way, you shouldn’t worry about IE8 too much, because Microsoft started making automatic updates to the IE browsers. Now that’s some great news!
Crafted (Coded) with love
And we mean it. We use some of the latest nifty techniques in HTML5 and CSS3 . We ensured that the theme provides outstanding search engine optimization, using proper coding standards. We understand we deliver our product to developers, so this theme is properly coded, no unneeded extra features you’ll never use and it’s probably one of the easiest to understand code you’ll ever find on Themeforest (and now we have customers which can back our affirmation). We provide a solid backbone for you to build upon, we offer just enough to get you started with your next project. Everything is straight forward and you’ll get used to the code in less time than you would’ve ever thought.
