widgetized home page features a hover effect that ups the opacity on images, which are otherwise dimmed. Modern Portfolio also includes a landing page template, something that’s becoming a basic feature of StudioPress themes. The theme reflects the current design emphasis of StudioPress: wide spacing and large, clean typography.
In December of 2013, StudioPress refreshed Modern Portfolio with the new Modern Portfolio Pro, adding support for HTML5 markup and an additional widget area. If you’re looking to activate Modern Portfolio on a new site or freshen an existing site running this theme, be sure to check out Modern Portfolio Pro.
Introduced on 2/13/13, Modern Portfolio is a 2 column theme with 3 layout options. Three of the 6 standard Genesis layout options have been removed to simplify content creation. Beyond the WordPress standards of custom menus and threaded comments, Modern Portfolio also supports custom headers, custom backgrounds, and Google web fonts (specifically, Lato and Merriweather). The selected fonts and weights add about 140 Kb to the site’s page weight, which is a lot for typography.
Here are all of the widget areas for the Modern Portfolio theme:
