So far the support has been really good. Thanks for the quick responses!
My next mission is to insert recent portfolio entries into new pages. I know their has been shortcodes created, but the shortcode displays titles and dates (which I do not want to show-the images are too small and displayed vertically). What I am after exactly is seen in the Archive/sitemap template. If you scroll down half way it has 'The 8 latest Portfolio Entries'. Is there anyway I can extract that and insert it into new pages?
Will I need to create a new template?
