— Free Portfolio WordPress Theme


You’ve poured your heart and soul into creating something amazing. But people won’t know about it unless you share it. York makes that easy with a free portfolio WordPress theme that gets out of the way.

Ready for WordPress 5.0

We like to push the boundaries of what makes a WordPress theme capable. And with the release of WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg, the new WordPress block editor, we couldn’t be more excited for the evolution of creating rich content in WordPress.

That’s why we’ve already invested in making York Lite a Gutenberg WordPress theme that empowers folks to publish on a whole different level. York Lite 100% supports the upcoming WordPress Block Editor, Gutenberg.

Get noticed

Your work will shine thanks to York’s minimal design touches that help you stand out from the crowd. With nothing to distract from your portfolio, you’re free to tell the story however you want: in words, images, or even video.

Show off your creativity

York’s grid layout means your portfolio always looks great, whether you have one item or hundreds. And if you go Pro, the built-in lazy loading gives you have the freedom to add as many gallery images as you want while keeping the browsing experience lightning fast.

  • Mobile responsive grid
  • Retina image support
  • Lazy loading built in (Pro)
  • Smooth infinite scrolling (Pro)

Go live in minutes

We know you’d rather be focused on creating than spending time on your portfolio. That’s why we designed York to be lightweight and super easy to customize.

And with York Pro, it becomes even more customizable.

Want to go Pro?

Give York a try, and if you like it – upgrade to Pro. When you go Pro, you will have instant access to powerhouse features to level-up your portfolio game.

You’ll be able to easily create stunning lightbox galleries within just a few clicks, display gorgeous full-width captions and ultimately land more gigs.

York Pro has an attention-grabbing footer that will generate more leads for you than ever before. Combine that with an effective subscribe widget and you have the perfect recipe for gaining more clients.

York Pro takes everything that’s great about the York Lite and gives you even more power with easy access to 600+ Google fonts, customizable color pickers, a prominent call-to-action footer that will land you more clients, a touch-enabled lightbox gallery that looks great on every device, and so much more!
