I want to change the portfolio page and I wonder if there might be some plugin or other function that will be supported with the choices theme that will make my work a bit easier. Here is what I want to do do:
1) When a user clicks on a category, and no image will be available for that category, the user should see a default text like "no project available for this category".
2) When a user clicks on one of the portfolio items, I want to have small thumbnails under the main image, instead of the numberic_controls items under the image, so that the user can click on the thumbnail to select the image for the slider.
I found, that I can make these changes in \themes\childtheme\includes\loop-portfolio.php but I would like to know if there might be an easier way to replace the portfolio slider instead of programming it from scratch.
