I’m working with the Levitation theme. I need to create many portfolio pages for my site. The documentation included with my purchase illustrates this capability: “New and a very unique feature is the option to set up as many portfolios as you want. Just choose a new page and display the same or other categories of your choice.” Once I reach 9 portfolios, however, I can’t create anymore. Please advise.January 13, 2011 at 4:03 pm #39021
yes I’m sorry. It’s a limitation of Levitations framework. You can only create 9 portfolio pages. Themes like Display since Version 2.0, CleanCut, Habitat and Avisio have a newer framework which doesn’t have this drawback anymore. Maybe Kriesi updates Levitation too but I’m not aware of any upcoming updates at the moment.February 14, 2011 at 8:34 pm #39022
Is there *any* way around this? I have a couple weeks sunk into building a new site with this theme, only to run into this problem today when I am almost finished (I need 10 portfolios). This is deeply disappointing.
Funnily enough I’m not really interested in starting over with a new theme. HOWEVER- *if* I were to switch, which theme is closest to Levitation on the back end (in terms of the way it uses posts, categories, pages, sidebars, etc)?February 15, 2011 at 10:23 am #39023
I’m sorry to say that there is no way around the 9 portfolio limit. When the template / framework was designed it wasn’t considered that a user would need more than 9 portfolios and the codebase limits what could be done to adjust this.
In the end, the framework had a major update before the release of Display and CleanCut which don’t have this limitation.
The latest themes (Avisio / Cleancut / Habitat) are all very similar in the backend / options available – which one you’d pick would depend on which design / homepage and pages layout you prefer. I’ll talk to Kriesi to see if there’s anything we can do to help you get a replacement theme.

Update: Please contact Kriesi through this Contact form (please include a link to this topic) and we’ll work something out :)

I bought Avisio and Display yesterday- the basic structure of Display is similar, but the formatting in terms of thumbnail sizes, etc., is way off. Avisio uses custom post types, so I’d have a lot of copying and pasting to do, and the formatting is way off there too. I had done a fair bit of styling and customization on Levitation. There are bunch of little annoying differences, like the way Display doesn’t by default let you link to a page, which I’m going to have to put back in manually. I’m running into a hard deadline and this has really pretty much ruined my week.
This 9 portfolio limit needs to be advertised in flashing text when you buy this theme.
