When you are browsing the Imagine Limburg website, hopefully you not only enjoy the photographs, but also the design and user experience of the website. Well, at least that’s one of the targets to aim for! In this article I set out pro’s and con’s of the Rife Free Theme for WordPress and how it works in practice on Imagine Limburg.

A theme for photography

When I started with Imagine Limburg (IL), I struggled to find a clean, future-proof setup that had to become the foundation of the website. As IL is destined to become an image-heavy website, content management systems specific for photography (like the Koken CMS) were evaluated first. However I struggled to find a nice (and free) base theme to go with that.

Let me explain.

Normally we take a GPS device or (at least) a map with us when going on a hike, or day tour with our car. However sometimes we forget the GPS or simply don’t have a map of the region. In that case we look around at the place we start and most of the times (especially in well known, much visited (touristic) regions) we’ll find a large (wooden) signpost with a map. Very often such maps are placed in town squares, at car parks, along (hiking) trails, at cable railway stations or at mountain cabins for example.
