Updated: March 29, 2013!

A couple of weeks ago I received a “request for a future post” from Emma (didn’t provide a website with her request for me to credit) asking for a new WordPress theme gallery.   This time, her request was for a portfolio WordPress theme gallery.

Although I can’t always fulfill every request I get, this gallery is one that I think will benefit a large number of people, so I’ve decided to throw one together!   The top half will be free portfolio themes and the second half will be premium portfolio themes which are available to purchase.  I’ve also included a feature list whenever one was available.

Over time, I intend to update this post as both types of portfolio themes become available.   If you know of one that you think should be included on this list, please let us know!

    Looks like somebody forget to renew dailywp.com :D

    Also, the links to the Modularity theme are all broken on my end. I always thought that was a paid one however.

  2. WyldKard says:

    Any themes that cater to non-graphical portfolios, such as for musicians?

  3. cnmoody says:

    a lot of the links were broken for me. i wanted to try some of these out too…

  4. Kyle Eslick says:

    Hmmm, I checked most of them in the past week and they worked fine, but I’ll check into it.

    If you find specific ones that are broken, please leave them with your comment so I can get them updated/removed.

  5. CMS Themes says:

    Excellent choices mate. Evid and Cassiopeia got my vote :)

  6. EmmaB says:

    Thanks for taking the time to fulfill my request, Kyle!

    I am currently using the Snapshot theme for a gallery blog that I have but I was still looking for one to use with my portfolio blog.

  7. Kyle Eslick says:

    @ Emma – No problem. I figured others were probably also looking for something like this, so it was worth the effort!

  8. SuperMario290 says:

    I use the portfoliopress theme on my personal portfolio, and I think it’s the best free portfolio theme out there.

  9. Phil says:

    Does anyone know where I can get the Portfolio Theme from Dailywp.com? The link is broken and I can’t find anything on google, only a turkish version, but also can’t speak turkish ;)

  10. Kyle Eslick says:

    I went through and pulled out the DailyWP theme because it appears the domain isn’t even registered anymore.

    After removing all the broken links there seems to be a very limited version of free portfolio themes available :(

  11. Catnip says:

    Dailywp.com seems to be back up & running, and there’s a link on their front page to a Portfolio theme, although it isn’t free.

  12. Taufiq Hasan says:
