I do remember and did check that thread. That was regarding a missing segment of code from an earlier version of a different theme, Epik, which predated the changeover to Genesis 2.0 and HTML5 activation. In that thread’s issue, the choice of category selection was missing in the admin panel.
BTW, I also checked to see that that particular code is present, plus more relating to the portfolio functions that came with Ally, in fact.
The issue here is different. It’s with portfolio page displaying full content rather than content limit and only since the activation of HTML5.
