Hello Kriesi et al!
My client http://bit.ly/V4rm1L has been loving their site; it's been easy to navigate, manage on their own, and they've needed little support from me until now. Thank you for that!
However, they've added too much content to their site and with more than 50 portfolio items showing, it appears like this http://bit.ly/ZhlOcJ
So I went searching your great forum for some alternatives:
First I thought Paginating that front page might solve the problem. But it gives me a new one - no sort across the entire portfolio due to an ajax limitation.
But seeing as how the sort is crucial to my clients, I guess that's not a great solution.
If I limit the portfolio load to 52 items, the page loads ok, but means there are a great number of portfolio items that don't make the sort still.
I know I can add individual portfolio items in my Menu as a drop down, which is what I'll likely do, but isn't there another way?
How can a site like http://www.thestylejunkies.com get so many images to load without it killing their site? I know they're based on the theme SizeMttrs: http://themeforest.net/item/size-mttrs-responsive-portfolio/full_screen_preview/1559545
Can't wait to hear what y'all come up with!
