Hello there. I am running the SquareOne theme with my site and I am having trouble with the Ultra Portfolio plug in. I know this is a third party plug in, but I’m only reaching out because after talking with the plug in creator, it appears it’s the theme that is not allowing the plug in to work properly. They said it is “some sort of jquery loading issue that is not recognizing the file properly”. When I use the sample genesis theme, the plug in works fine. With SquareOne, the category filtering doesn’t work and the masonry grid doesn’t line up properly.
Please let me know if there is anything you can do or if there is a direction you can point me in.

Thanks, I’ll check it out once again to see what’s going on.September 8, 2016 at 9:14 pm #19377
Ok, check your site I just got it working. I commented out the jquery code at the bottom of the front-page.php file since that appears to be where the conflict is coming from.September 9, 2016 at 9:41 am #19380
You’re the man!
Thanks so much.

Hi Wes. Now that the plug in works, the background images are not covering again and the font size for the front page 5 and 7 sections just got really big.
Is there a different photo gallery plug in that you would recommend to work well with your theme?

We’ve used Envira Gallery for four of our websites. I used to use Nextgen but it had problems..big issues (unrelated to the theme)..you can read up on the reviews.
Envira has a free and a paid version. I love it, as I can do slide shows, galleries, or masonry presentations. Check it out. I got the Full with unlimited lifetime…and since I am using it on several sites, the customers paid for it. It has a lot of “add on” features.
They have a .css add on as well to let you customize each gallery.
I found it to be easy to use, and quite stable. I had one issue with the “deep linking” add on, and their support was almost immediate.
PS your site is very nice.September 10, 2016 at 11:15 am #19394
@david I haven’t really used any other Portfolio plugins so I wouldn’t know at the moment. However, I bet we could override the code that effects the Background Images and Font sizes if you still wanted to use it.September 12, 2016 at 12:38 am #19399
I tried the Envira plug-in that Andy recommended and it doesn’t even display on the homescreen. It displays on a test page though. Is there anything we can do to make it work, or what was the work around you were talking about with the code effecting the background images and font sizes with my original plug in?
Thanks for your help.

@david, yeah they have code in their CSS that changes the default background images, font sizes etc, but we should be able to override it by adding in our own code…..Of course we could also add the code
!importantto the parts of the style.css of the theme that is affected so the Theme’s code is what is being used (verses the plugin’s code).
Do they not have an option that disables their CSS in their settings? Some plugins have this option (like WooCommerce for example) where they allow you to remove their CSS so you can use your own. If they do, then nothing would need to be done since everything is already setup in the Theme. If not, then you’d have to find out each part of the page that the Plugin affects/changes in order to know what needs to be changed back to the original style.
