    hello

    once again, an amazing theme; thank you so much! it is quite prefect for my newest project; i have a couple of questions, though (trying to wrap my mind around the portfolio structure)

    i would like to display about 25 top level categories in my portfolio for a special event rental client, eg, ‘chair covers’, etc

    within ‘chair covers’ i would like to have some sub categories, eg, specialty, satin, plain, etc, each of which may only have 1 image, or several for different colours

    so, if i set ‘chair covers’ as one of the portfolio categories on the 1st page, when you click that is it possible to then show just the sub categories for ‘chair covers’ and hide the other 24 top level ones?

    also, once you click on a sub category, eg, ‘satin’, how do you add the related items to the page, please

    thanks so much!

    ok, so i sort of figured out the related items question, where it loads all other items that have the same parent category, but is there a way to include other items that are not associated with the same parent category as well? thanks again, jodi

    Hey,

    1) Sub portfolio pages are not supported at the moment. You can use redirection plugins to work around this problem (eg “chair covers” is a portfolio entry and if the user clicks on “read more” a redirection will bring him to another “chair covers” portfolio page). A popular plugin is: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/redirection/

    2) you can try to add tags support for portfolio items open up angularincludesadminregister-portfolio.php and replace:

    'show_in_nav_menus'=> false,

    with:

    'show_in_nav_menus'=> false,
    'taxonomies'=> array('post_tag'),

    Then open up includes/related-portfolio-posts.php and replace:

    $tags = wp_get_object_terms( $post->ID, 'portfolio_entries');

    with

    $tags = wp_get_post_tags( $post->ID, 'portfolio_entries');

    now you should be able to use tags instead of categories which is a more versatile solution imho.

    I hope it worked? I set the status to “resolved” for now.
