  • Hi – I would like to use the Portfolio to display hair products.
    See: http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?page_id=3664

    I want to create links from each product in a category (for example each “Curl’n” product) to go to a page specific about Curl’n products (http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?page_id=3731)

    Is this possible? Or is there a better way to do this?

    I really want to use the “Portfolio” function because I like the masory grid and how the photos move when you hover.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Melinda

    Hi Melinda,

    yes, you can do that, you can add links to the categories in the menu or in the content, please take a look at this post here:

    http://7theme.net/faqs/can-add-category-menu/

    Thanks for the explanation. Here is what the new page looks like: http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?project-type=curln-promise

    I don’t like how it looks. Just a list of large photos. And I cannot add any text or additional content to the page.

    I tried adding a link in the Portfolio item itself on the right side under “Project Options”, but I don’t see where that link actually goes or shows up.

    Thanks,
    Melinda

    Hi,

    sorry, it seems there is a problem with the settings, because normally there should be a grid like on the “grid portfolio” template. We will fix this and provide an update.

    The link in project options is only visible if you set the client, please take a look at this entry here, we’ve set the link to google and set “Google” as client:

    http://web-rockstars.com/cut/?portfolio=wedding-updo

    Thanks.

    I am thinking I might just create a new page and use a Gallery, for example:
    http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?page_id=3731

    This way I can add text to the top, then add the products I want on that page. I hope that makes sense. If I use the Category page from the Menu, I cannot add any additional text to it (or I don’t know how). http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?project-type=curln-promise

    A related question – on the wording on the Portfolio items:
    Client
    Works

    Is it possible to change how those read? For example, I would rather they say
    Client = For More Information
    Works = Product

    Also, when you click on the portfolio item, it takes you to a “slider” of some sort. Where do I change that so it formats differently and the date is not visible?

    Thanks again,

    Yes, you are right, you cannot add additional text to the taxonomy pages, so it makes sense to solve it with a gallery.

    Is it possible to change how those read? For example, I would rather they say
    Client = For More Information
    Works = Product

    Yes, you can change this. Just open the file “sevenleague” in the folder “languages” and change the text.

    The slider in the portfolio will show all attached images to the portfolio entry, to add new images in the slider just edit the portfolio entry, click the “add media” button above the editor, upload the images and after uploading, just close the pop up window and save the post. WordPress will attach the images to this project and display them in the slider.

    If you want to hide the “Created: “+date, please go to WP admin -> Appearance -> Theme Options -> General -> Extra CSS Content and add this:

    .portfolio-single-details .work-details-p {
    display:none;
    }

    Thank you.

    1 – I need to figure out how to update the sevenleague file (thorugh FTP?).

    2 – I added the CSS code and it took away all of the details, not just the date? Maybe I misunderstood? Maybe it is better this way …. that way I don’t have to do item #1 above.

    3 – How do I get certain types of clients to show in a grid? For example, this shortcode:
    [client_grid columns=”3″]

    Can I change it to something like [client_grid columns=”3″ type=”logo”] to get it just to show the clients with the category of logo? I tried it and it did not work, but am I close to customizing the shortcode? For Portfolio there is a shortcode builder, but I don’t see on for Clients.

    Thanks for your help,
    Melinda

    Hi,

    1. Yes, the best way is with FTP, just upload the files and overwrite the existing files.

    2. Sorry, my fault, replace this

    .portfolio-single-details .work-details-p {
    display:none;
    }

    with this:

    .portfolio-single-details .work-date {
    display:none;
    }

    3. This is not included in the theme, but if you want, you can open the file “posttype-client.php” in the sevenleague folder, and replace line 351:

    $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => $items, 'post_type'=>'clients','post_status' => 'publish');

    with this:

    $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => $items, 'post_type'=>'clients','post_status' => 'publish' , 'clients-type' => $type);

    Then you can use the >> Type=”logo” << part in the shortcode

    Thank you for all of your help thus far. We are getting VERY close to taking this website live and I have a couple other questions.

    1 – As you can see, I added ALOT (and still have 10+ to add) of product photos.
    http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?page_id=3664

    Is it possible to have all of the products on 1 page (instead of 7), so that when you click on a category, they show properly (right now they only show the ones on that particular page? Or, will having all of the products on 1 page cause the page to load too slow?

    2 – I’ve done some more thinking about what happens when you click on a product name (text) from the Product page http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?page_id=3664. It would be better if when you click it takes you to the appropriate subpage for that category. How can I make this happen for each product image? Where would I edit that link? Meaning, for all of the pink “Curl’n” products, I would want them to go to this page: http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?page_id=3731 when you click on the text of the product name. Is this possible?

    Thank you again for all of your help.

    Hi,

    1. You can set the number of items when you edit the page, click the “Group template” tab in the settings box below the editor and insert i.e. 100 for ‘items’.

    2. Hm, you can do that only with massive changes in the php file of the template. Why dont you add manually the links to the page? I think thats the easiest way to do that…

    Thank you for your help. I now have all products showing on one page.

    Sorry if this is a silly question. I don’t know where to add the links manually. Is it to each product (ie each portfolio item). If so, where/how?

    Thanks again,
    Melinda

    Hi Melinda,

    here is a tutorial how you can add categories to the menu:

    http://7theme.net/faqs/can-add-categories-taxonomies-wordpress-menu/

    Thanks, but I am not trying to add categories to the menu.

    I need to know how to make a link from the portfolio items to a page. Specifically, when you click on the text/caption of a portfolio item on this page http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?page_id=3664 I need it to link to the respective category page that I have created. I hope that makes sense.

    Melinda

    In addition to my last question from 4/3/15, can you tell me how to adjust the photos on the blog page. If I add a Featured Image, it is HUGE on the blog preview page. How can I make it smaller?

    Thanks,
    Melinda

    Hi Melinda,

    I know what you mean on this page:

    http://cl.phinneymassage.com/?page_id=3664

    But if you want to link to the category you have to change the PHP files, because normally the portfolio entries link to their single entries. Do you know how to edit PHP files?

    Blog Page Image

    You can try this: Go to WP Admin -> Appearance -> Theme Options -> General -> Extra CSS Content and add this:

    .index-item-img img, .category-item-img img {
    width:auto!important;
    }

    This code should solve the problem.
