Is Epik fully compatible with Genesis Portfolio Pro? I’ve set up a couple of test portfolio pages according to the plugin’s instructions. However, the content on the individual pages doesn’t go to the full width of the content area. There’s also a sidebar that I can’t get rid of because there’s no Layout Settings on the Portfolio Items pages. Here’s what it looks like (click one of the portfolio items to view):
The Category page looks fine, but the Portfolio Items don’t seem to work properly with this theme.
I understand that Epik uses blog posts and blog categories as a Portfolio option. Our site already has blog categories, so I don’t want to mix up categories and deal with workarounds. That’s why I loaded Genesis Portfolio Pro. It employs specific portfolio functionality. The only problem is that I can’t seem to control the look of those items (although the Categories allow for Layout Settings; and yes, I did check Screen Options on the Portfolio Items pages).
I was under the impression that this would work since Epik is compatible with the Genesis Framework. Is there a glitch that I’m not aware of? I’ve got two sites that I want to add portfolios to. They use your Epik and Imagery themes. The portfolio feature is pretty important to me, so I really need it to work. If it turns out that there’s a better plugin that works with these themes, please let me know.
Thanks. 🙂February 28, 2018 at 4:31 pm #22478
It should work fine, but if the Portfolio plugin you’re using has the same class names as the Portfolio that comes with the Theme, then that might be where the issue is coming, visually.
I created the Portfolio feature for my themes back around 2011, and the Genesis Portfolio plugin was created several years after that I believe. So if you use the plugin, then you’ll probably have to remove or comment out the default CSS code that comes with the theme so the Plugin doesn’t use the styles for its code.
Edit: Yep, that’s what it is. Look in your style.css file around line 2937 and remove or comment out the Portfolio CSS code. Here’s what it looks like now – https://i.imgur.com/hBqKOaK.png
Here’s what it will look like when you remove the CSS – https://i.imgur.com/cGpvRpL.png
BTW, you can still use the portfolio that comes with the theme if you wanted to. You can display specific categories on certain pages by following the tutorials here – http://appfinite.com/tutorials/ …..However, if you prefer to have Portfolio Post types, then you should use the plugin instead.February 28, 2018 at 4:40 pm #22479
Let me know if that works.February 28, 2018 at 7:49 pm #22482
Bless you Wes! I’ll get on this right away. Thanks so much! ??
One other question: how do I get rid of the sidebars on the Portfolio Items pages? The items don’t have the Layout controls that normal posts/pages have.
Thanks again!February 28, 2018 at 8:44 pm #22484
Yep, it works fine. I just need to get rid of the sidebar (Layout Settings are missing, but just on the Portfolio Item pages).March 1, 2018 at 7:03 pm #22486
I’m not sure about the Sidebar/Layout Settings, I haven’t used the plugin myself.
Do they have documentation or a support forum? If so, I would check there as they would know much better than I would on this one. I’ve never used it and have no idea how it’s setup just yet.
