Portage is a spinoff of the Atticus Finch theme I originally designed for use on my WordPress blogs. Because of my dissatisfaction with WordPress and the block editor, I stopped developing it for some time. After transitioning to ClassicPress, I decided to continue developing it, but changed the name to "Portage" to avoid confusion.

A "portage" is the act of carrying a boat between navigable waters, in this case between the upstream trip I was making with WordPress and the downstream trip I am making with ClassicPress. It seemed appropriate. (It is also the name of the city I live in, which I very much enjoy living in.)

For more information about Atticus Finch please go to


  1. In your admin panel, go to Appearance -> Themes and click the 'Add New' button.
  2. Upload the zip file.

Demo Site

You can view this theme in action here.

You can install this theme on your own (non-production) site by logging in via the command line, navigating to the wp-content/themes directory and executing the following command:

git clone

The theme will then appear in your list of available themes.

To check for updates, log in via the command line, and navigate to the wp-content/themes/portage directory and execute the following command:

git fetch

If the project has not been updated, that command will not ouput anything. If the project has been updated, git will begin displaying what has changed, a page at a time. If you don't want to review that, press q to quit.

You can update your installation by executing the following command:

git pull

Again, please do not install this theme on production sites.

This theme was never fully debugged before I took it live on my own sites. I've slowly been working through both transitioning to Portage and getting rid of bugs. Check the issues page for items I'm in the process of working through. I may also make some notes in the wiki. —Cheers
