Is there a way to create a homepage that shows portfolio items in a full-width single column with parallax background (preferably pulling the featured image or something for the background), with the title/excerpt on top? And when clicked, will go to the single portfolio item page.
This is what I’m shooting for: http://goo.gl/cncal1
There’s gotta be a way with all the great Enfold layout editor options. Thanks!
You can build that with Color Sections and Title/Text/Icons elements, but i guess what you want is to have it dynamic so it gets the data from the portfolio items automatically, that is possible with a custom template (custom loop) and the do_shortcode function, but it would require some heavy custom coding, unfortunately that’s beyond the support scope we can offer.
Yea, I was basically wondering if there was a setting in the portfolio grid (maybe with a little CSS magic) that would give me full-width, clickable portfolio entries.
If I were to create a custom loop just for the homepage, which shortcode would you be calling for “do_shortcode”?
You would recreate the desired layout for a singular element on a different Page to get the generated shortcodes to use on the Loop(you can enable this to see the shortcodes).
I don’t really have to do anything with the avia shortcodes, though, right? I could just create a separate homepage loop for portfolio-items and style as necessary…?
Yes, you don’t have the modify the core files, some CSS adjusting may be necessary. I made an example template (cloned template-builder.php) you can use to start: https://gist.github.com/josueochoa/012bbe9c40389abbcabb (custom stuff should be around line 34).
