we are happy users of the eunoia-theme on the modepalast-website (http://modepalast.com). The designers get introduced by the portfolio-function. For random order of the portfolio items, I put the code-snippet from to the function.php.
As 100 Designers are too much on one page on mobile devices, we split them into 4 pages – and there is the problem. Every time someone, for example, switches from page 1 to page 2, the items get ordered again. So if someone is looking for a specific designer and scrolls through the 4 pages, there is the big chance, that the designer doesn’t show up.
