Hi, I am a newbie with just a cursory knowledge of HTML and CSS, and strongly prefer a plugin rather than coding solution.
I started my site out in Balance about 6 weeks ago, and recently decided to move to Executive Pro. I finally got slider working close to the way I wanted it. However, when I moved to configuring Portfolio (one of the reasons I chose Exec Pro), it turns out there is a different approach than Balance with a new Portfolio type. Balance just uses posts to create the Portfolio page.
I want the simple solution of Balance where I can capture thumbnails and titles in a grid from Posts. Specifically, I want to create a page like this, which was generated from all posts within a category: http://meditatingentrepreneur.com/entrepreneurs/.
BTW - my test site is http://theaccidentalentrepreneurs.com/ .
Feedback and a straightforward plugin from which I can generate a portfolio page like Balance, would be most welcome.http://meditatingentrepreneur.com/
Read this. Brad has a tutorial that may help you which is based off Balance.
Love coffee, chocolate and my Bella!
Thank you. I am not new to computing or even programming (last time I programmed was 35 years ago in Pascal), However, I am still too much a newbie to CSS/PHP/HTML and the WordPress file structure to completely understand the tutorial and what must be obvious to most. (eg even "Gist" which I assume lets you copy and paste code is new). In reading through tutorial and comments, there is too much I don't 100% understand to feel comfortable.
Also, I know enough to know that before I do anything, I should back up files properly. I don't yet know how to do that -- I assume you have to access files directly through FTP and back up. I'm just hesitant to do anything without a system or without sufficient time.
(Any recommendations for coming up to speed with WordPress fundamentals mentioned above welcome).
Maybe eventually, a simple solution will emerge so I can just list a grid of photos and titles that link to respective posts.
Therefore, for now I think I'll just make the "entrepreneur" tab a blog with a link to the category, and stick in "Read More's" in each post .
Thanks for responding
