I know you've answered this before, but I am unable to follow the answers. In one frustrating thread, the guy was running into the same problems i am and then wrote, "Oh, I finally got it. Thanks" without sharing his epiphany. I figure if I start my own thread at least I can ask questions until I get it.
Like many, I want to have a main Portfolio page that has 4 images on it that when you click on each one you are taken to its corresponding gallery page. Right now via the menu I see my 4 dropdown gallery pages under my Portfolio main page, but I'd also like to have the main Portfolio page have 4 image buttons (a piece of art I made that is a representative photo with the gallery title on it) where someone could click on each one and be taken to its gallery (instead of what looks like just a single post page). This is what I seem to be seeing on the Demo Portfolio page—or am I seeing something different?
I cannot figure how to have the click-through go to the right place, except by uploading my four main images directly into the Portfolio page, and making sure their url clicks through to the corresponding gallery page. That doesn't look right, and judging by the demo it isn't. Then I tried uploading a bunch of items in a Portfolio category, with the button image being the last item, but no images showed up at all on my designated Portfolio page, even after choosing the category in the Portfolio Theme Options.
I guess I'm confused about Portfolios, items, and uploads and galleries. Is there one place I can go to read about all that? I would put a screenshot here of what result I'm looking for but don't see a way to do that. I've spent many hours on this now, getting close but then frustrated.
Thanks for any help.
