My site has several blog posts, but I like how the upScale portfolio can easily display posts on pages (columns with excerpt + image).
(1) Is there a way to easily set up the blog to be displayed like portfolio (or is that the whole purpose of portfolio)?
(2) If not, is there a way to convert blog posts into portfolio posts, or will I have to create entirely new portfolio posts (cut/paste content) and delete the blog posts?
(3) And if I do that, will I mess up inbound links or seo?
Thanks for the help, and tolerating me!
basically it’s possible to display normal posts like portfolio posts but you’d need to convert several templates. The portfolio uses template-portfolio.php whereas the posts use template-blog.php. You can try to copy the MAIN CONTAINER code from template-portfolio.php to template-blog.php but I’m not sure if the output needs additional styling, etc. I wouldn’t recommend this modification.
2) No – it’s not possible to convert custom post types to posts and vice versa – it ends up in a manual process.
