Tagged: portfolio layout
Hi, I am using Modern Portfolio but it doesn't seem to have a Template > Portfolio Layout for the interior pages. How do I add one? Thanks.http://cameriseberries.com/category/varieties/
It doesn't have a separate page - it thinks you're going to show all your portfolio pieces on the home page, in the Portfolio section.
Now. A caveat. What follows is Addled Momma's ADHD-Friendly Automated Archive Method (because while I have a lot of passions, taxonomies are NOT on the list). So please feel free to extrapolate.
Start by defining a category called Portfolio (or something berry-related, in your case. You could have several: Berry Decadent Desserts, Berry Good Fun for Kids (a page of craft and cooking activities, from using the berries as dye in tie-dying shirts to making berry sundaes?) Berry Nutritious Breakfasts (sorry - there's an ad writer in my chair trying to get the developer to shut up.)
Since Genesis gives us a place for a title and intro copy on the Add New/Edit Category page, you can just use those Category archive pages (not to be confused with the Genesis archive page that looks like a site map) as your variously named pages.
To be clear, you will not be going to Pages/All Pages/Add New and choosing a template from the dropdown in the sidebar on the right. In fact, you won't be physically adding pages at all.
All you'll do is pull out the dropdown under Posts and choose Categories, then start adding new ones. When you build your menus, use those categories as your links - not pages, since you won't have any.
From here, your options depend on two factors:
1. how comfortable you are with CSS and php -
2. how different you want those pages to look from the default,
You can do some stuff on the Genesis Theme Settings page - about halfway down.
You can do more with CSS and body classes, if you want each category to look different.
And if you really want to get funky, the actual template file that generates these category files is index.php, in the Genesis parent folder.
get_stylesheet_directory() if you know what I mean. 😉 You'll want to copy that file from the genesis folder to the modern-portfolio-pro folder, then make your changes.
Sharing the good news about the wonders of modern CSS and the split-step. Either one should get you moving fast. 😀
