[resolved] [closed] WPExplorer Adapt theme 404 errors for portfolio display (27 posts)

    Hello,

    I am currently using the Adapt theme (http://wpexplorer.me/demo.php?theme=adapt) for my WP site under local environment. It's a really nice theme, however I am running into some issues.

    The theme comes with a portfolio plugin which allows one to add your projects for showcase, and will be displayed on the homepage but as a different section from posts.

    According to the theme's demo, when you click on a portfolio thumbnail, you will be led to the portfolio page (which is like a post). However, I get the 404 error instead. Also, the Portfolio menu link on top should link to a page with all projects from the different categories displayed, but again, I got an 404 error as well.

    Anyone has any idea what is going wrong? I tried looking at the template files, but since I am not php-trained so it's kinda overwhelming.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm sorry but as your chosen theme's download is behind a Twitter wall, you may need to seek support from the theme's developer directly.

    I tried but apparently there is no forums and I cannot locate the author's email.

    Would it be Ok if I send the theme files over for testing? Since it is a free theme, I think it should be fine. The twitter wall is just to let user follow them and tweet about the download...

    I'm no expert, but am working with this theme as well. Have you created a portfolio page? So made a page and selected the portfolio template? Have you created portfolio posts?

    I have some portfolio dummy posts. I tried create a custom link (in the demo, I noticed that the portfolio posts/pages generally have /portfolio directories) but it didn't work - 404 as well.

    I don't think I have tried creating the page though. Can you elaborate on the part on how to create the page and select the portfolio template? Thanks

    In the wordpress backend click pages > new page.
    Under 'page attributes' under 'template' select 'portfolio'.
    Then click 'publish' and view the page. You should see your portfolio page there.

    The page works! But now I have another problem: When you click on a portfolio post, the image slider just display the arrows without the images. :(

    hi designtrial,

    Sorry I didn't see your post earlier.

    To make the slider work in the homepage, add the images (set as featured) you want to show in the admin sidebar menu item call HP Slides (one image per entry). You can add a short caption in the description box, but even though it says h2 tag can be used, it doesn't work very well on my side.

    As for having image sliders in your posts, create a new portfolio item (look at the menu for it) and upload the images to create a gallery. For the portfolio item to display a thumbnail, use the set featured image function.

    Note that the featured image function is available up till WP 3.3.2 though.

    Hope this helps. :)

    Hey tom_sawyer,

    I checked the themes php and you have to use a featured image in the highlights post before it will activate the title as a link.

    As for the 404 issues. It seems re saving your permalinks will help with the portfolio and highlight posts displaying 404.

    I too have the adapt theme and none of images are showing even though I have uploaded several images via the "Set Featured Image" link. I can see the images in the Media Library but when I select image and click the "Insert selected images" button the window refreshes and the checked image is no longer checked. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    You can only have one featured image... so you have to upload or go to that image and select "use as featured image". If your trying to use multiple images in the portfolio, upload your images in that portfolio post and just select one as featured. You don't insert them they just have to be in the gallery to show in the portfolio slider.

    Thanks, Vauxite, that worked. Since this thread is about Adapt do know why every time I place an image in the images folder and link to it via the style.css doc I get a "Failed to load given URL" in Firebug. I know the path is correct. I've even placed an absolute url in the link but to know avail.

    Scratch that last question. Figured it out as I'm figuring out all this as I go. Thanks again.

    Resaving your permalinks is indeed the solution with the portfolio and highlight posts displaying 404.

    Can anybody explain to me what's ment by resaving your permalinks? I'm having the same troubles as you regarding the portfolio posts and the 404 error. Updating the page does not work and edit and accept the permanent link doesn't either.
    Thanks!

    Hi Frederik, did you happen to figure this out? I am having the same issue and do not know how to resave permalinks? Thanks!

    When we say re save permalinks that just means go to settings, then permalinks and just click "save changes" without changing anything.

    AWesome thanks that helped!

    In case you know the answer, I have another question about Adapt's Portfolio that I have been struggling.

    When a portfolio item is clicked the page it links to inlcudes the "featured image" at the top, and the rest of what I put in the post to the right of this image. I have included videos and pictures in these Portfolio item posts, so this does not work at all.

    I know you need a featured image for the Portfolio item to display on the main Portfolio page, but is there a way the image does not have to remain once you click on it?

    here is what I am talking about:

    Thanks for any suggestions, I'm quite new at this :)

    Hi yall! I'm also having an Adapt theme issue that was touched on above. When I click on portfolio images, I see slider arrows but no image loads.

    http://laloojewelry.com/collection/

    I have made some progress from the helpful comments above. For example, I did not have the images loaded into a gallery, and adding a gallery to the portfolio page solved my problem of the organizational categories not being shown on the 'collection' tab.

    A secondary issue I am having since I added the gallery to the 'collection' page is that when I create a portfolio, it shows up on the home page under 'recent work' below the slider but does not show up on the collection page.

    This is my first site and I started building it a week ago, so I'm sure this is a novice mistake. To be clear about what steps I have taken so far (as I'm sure one of them is incorrect):

    1. I uploaded 180 jewelry pics to media, and then made individual portfolios featuring the corresponding images. The four most recent portfolios showed up on the home page. When I went to the 'collection' page, the items were shown with the correct names, but the categories were not shown on top of the portfolio. When an image was clicked, the new page showed a slider without an image.

    2. I read this post. Added a gallery to the 'collections' page. Because I could not use images already uploaded in 'media', I uploaded the same 180 pics into the gallery. The categories at the top of the page appeared (hooray!). However, no image loaded when a portfolio image was clicked, just arrows.

    3. I created a new portfolio as a test, with an image from 'media' that was uploaded to create the gallery (instead of an image uploaded before the gallery was created). The new portfolio appears on the home page under 'recent work' but does not appear in the gallery. The pictures on the 'collection' page still do not show an image between the arrows when clicked.

    3. I updated permalinks. No changes.

    Any advice? Thanks so much in advance - I will be so happy to figure this out!

    (And if anyone is feeling EXTRA generous with their time, I would love to be pointed in the right direction to change the black name blocks over each portfolio item on the 'collection' page from black block/white text to clear block/black text as it currently looks a bit harsh on top of the jewelry.)

    Thanks Esmi, I am crossing my fingers that the uber-helpful members who have given their advice above might also shed some light on what I've encountered.
