    Hi. I’ve been working with this template for a few days and it’s great. I’ve made a few minor tweaks – mainly to the single portfolio layout and reducing the size of the slideshow. I wonder if any of you were available for some freelance support. I’m only needed to have some of the stuff done that is over my head. This is the link:

    If you head to one of the client pages – you’ll see my tweaks. I am looking to have the slideshow made into a portrait one, without affecting all the other slideshows or the main portfolio page. I’ve also degraded the responsiveness on that single portfolio with my tweaks. I am happy to pay for this support. If you are available, could you meal me at (Email address hidden if logged out)

    Many thanks.

    Hello,

    We are happy to help right here in the forum. Can you be more clear about making the slideshow portrait? Do you have any reference site with the same slideshow that you want? :)

    Regards,

    Hello Ismael,

    Thank you for your reply and I honestly don’t mind paying for some support, as this is a larger customisation that is required. Either way, I am very grateful for your time and support.

    This is my existing page:

    http://www.ckproductions.co.uk/main/portfolio-item/micky-flanagan/

    All I’ve done to create this is added the following code to the quick css:

    Code:

    body.single-portfolio .container .eight.units {
    float: right;
    width: 290px;
    }
    body.single-portfolio .container .four.units {
    margin-left: 0;
    width: 610px;
    }

    As you can see, the portfolio slideshow images are small and still in landscape. I’d like to make this page look something like this:

    http://www.ckproductions.co.uk/main/testimage1.jpg

    With that image down the left being a slideshow. However, i don’t want this to affect the layout of this page:

    http://www.ckproductions.co.uk/main/portfolio/ – which I’m happy with (other than some of the pictures being too short.

    Or to not affect the home page slideshow:

    http://www.ckproductions.co.uk/main/

    I have thought of a couple of ways of doing this. I could adjust the template not to include the featured images slideshow and just have normal right-sidebar pages with custom sidebars for each post. and a separate slider in the custom sidebar. this would work, but i don’t know how to make custom sidebars for each post.

    Equally i wonder if i could create dynamic templates for each post perhaps?

    I’m wondering if there is a more simple solution. The additions to additions above to my quick css mean that the page is not not on a fluid responsive grid like before – please try making the browser window small on this page to see:

    http://www.ckproductions.co.uk/main/portfolio-item/micky-flanagan/

    Do you have any suggestions as to how i could achieve the same look as the jpg and also have the portfolio main page not overly affected?

    I’d appreciate any help you can give me on this. it the last thing I need to do before finalising the content and launching.

    The template is great too. thanks.

    Hi Sam,

    There are a couple simple quick things you could do with the current changes you have made.

    One, is to just use full portrait images for the main image. The slideshow on the individual page will adapt to the height so doing this would give you the look of your testimage1.jpg but it will mean your main Client page will have the tall portrait aspect thumbnails instead of the smaller landscape style. If they are all the same height, this could look very nice with the way you’ve change the individual portfolio page.

    Second, is to use a smaller image for the initial image in your slideshow which will keep the Meet Our artists page looking the same as now but then add the portrait as the second image of your slideshow.

    Regards,

    HI Devin,

    Thanks for the advice. I’ve decided to exactly as you suggest and just use longer pictures. The portfolio page actually looks quite smart in portrait form. I wonder if you could tell me how to get my single client page now to act responsively – my quick css changes seem to have broken it.

    Many thanks,

    Did anyone get to see how i make my single portfolio page responsive – as asked above. Any help would be really welcome. Cheers, Sam

    Hi Sam,

    You will probably need to add some new css for the specific media queries. Open up the layout.css file and search for #Media Queries .

    This is what handles the variations for the different screen sizes. You can either add them here or just copy the @media querie to your custom.css and keep everything in contained.

    It looks like you may only need to add some new rules/fixes for the tablet portrait and landscape size and possibly remove the float:right you changed for the ” body.single-portfolio .container .eight.units “.

    Regards,

    Devin
