I have held off asking for help on this for a while, hoping that I would find the answer for myself, but things have gotten quite desperate now. I hope I can explain this properly:
I am building myself a website that will contain both my Portfolio and a Blog. The address is:
The Portfolio and Blog Items are stored as posts, with some PHP to work out which is which and display a different template to each.
The portfolio page has 5 subpages.
¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦
Websites Games Interactive Banners Clients
These pages all share the same template which contains Code that displays all the posts contained within the category that matches the pages name. This part works fine, and I even managed to get the subnav to render correctly.
It happens the moment I try to click on one of the Individual Portfolio links. It displays fine, but the nav and subnav falls apart. The breadcrumb also goes wrong (though i have hacked that so it works for now, not ideal:-().
I am guessing the reason is because I am technically not within the Portfolio folder anymore, even though the url displays perfectly.
Is there a way of telling these posts that they belong to a certain page so the structure remains intact?
Could I create pages of the same name as the posts and somehow link to them through the category list display? (e.g. instead of it loading the post up, it loads a page up that contains the single post). This sounds like it would double effort and I would love to avoid this if possible.
I hope that made sense, its been driving my crazy for a long time now, I have searched high and low for examples of other portfolio sites set up like mine, but none seem to have more than 2 levels.
From a Usability point of view I would love to get this working dynamically and avoid hacks, but I am getting pretty desperate, any help is really appreciated,
