Portfolio Press
Set only 1 portfolio cat to show on static home p (4 posts)

    I have a static home page set up that displays the portfolio. However, I was wondering if I could make this home page only display images from ONE portfolio category (or tag, even). For example, I could set up categories for Featured, Illustration, Design, etc... but only have the items from "Featured" show up on the front page, and then use the other categories within my menu system.

    I have art I'd like to put on my site, but not have those pieces be the first thing people see when they visit...

    Any ideas?

    Change the Post Dates to re-arrange the order...

    Thanks, theunartist. However, the changing the order wasn't exactly what I was trying to achieve.

    I wanted to be able to stop folks from being able to click "older posts" to see my back dated stuff that might not fit with what I'm trying to show them on the front page. Basically, I'd like to have 9 images curated for the front featured items, and then anything that falls into a different category only be accessible via the menus.

    So, it might be a neat/usefull feature if you were able to limit your front page to only display a certain category. In the mean time, though, I did just find a bit of a work around for anyone who is interested.

    In the content-portfolio.php file, there is a line with this code towards the end:

    <?php portfoliopress_content_nav(); ?>

    if you delete that, it will remove the "older posts" link from the portfolio pages. Which means, I can back date my stuff like you suggested, and anything over 9 won't show. Then I can just categorize those posts and make them accessible through my menu. Done deal. Which is perfect since I don't really want to have more than 9 pieces in any given portfolio category anyway!

    I was a little worried that it might remove the "older posts" link from the blog archives... but it did not!

    I should also note that this does not remove the nav from the individual post pages either... which is good and bad.

    Good because I want folks to be able to navigate from the individual post pages... but bad because they CAN keep navigating back into the back dated stuff.

    Although, even from a categorized portfolio page, they can still click on an image, then navigate the post pages in this way.

    Oh well.

    Now I'm off to see if I can figure out how to get the post page nav to the top of the image instead of the bottom...
