Pine, a free minimalist WordPress portfolio theme

This WordPress portfolio theme Pine was created as a way for freelancers, designers and small agencies to showcase their work and skills through an elegant and functional blog.

Bootstrap framework

To keep theme functionality from drastically changing with the screen size, we’ve used our experience in the RWD (Responsive Web Design) area. In order to implement RWD, we’ve used the Bootstrap framework.


Offcanvas navigation is hidden outside of viewport and when activated it opens with a slide in effect. And just like with our fist WordPress theme you can add multilevel navigation.


Post formats

Post formats make it possible for you to change the appearance of the each article on your blog. Pine currently supports: Aside, Image, Video, Quote, Link and Standard post formats.


Dark/light single post header

Single post header in Pine theme changes depending on the brightness of the image used as a featured image. If your image is bright, then a dark overlay appears over it with a light text and the other way round. Let’s hope that this feature will make it easier for you to choose images.


Jetpack portfolio post type

In order to use this feature within Jetpack you must enable Custom Content Types modules and then enable Portfolio post type. You can find the instructions here:



The customizer lets you change theme options with the current preview of your changes. If you like the changes, you can save and publish them – if you don’t, then just discard them and forget they were ever been made. The Pine WordPress portfolio theme offers default sections such as Background, Menus, Widgets and Front Page but also additional sections such as Header, Footer, Colors and Layouts.


In the Header section you can change the Site Title/Logo and Tagline.



In this section we’ve enabled adding, changing and erasing social icons.



Inside the Colour section you can find 6 colours that represent colour schemes and by choosing one of them, you can change the colour shades of your theme.



Just like the name of the section says, you can change the layout for each type of page. You can choose between One column, Left sidebar + Main column and Main column + Right sidebar.
