    Hi, I’m Víctor García, a web designer and a WordPress fan, like you. I have created a Portfolio Theme powered by WordPress. It may be helpful for those who want to create a portfolio. You can see the tutorial at WPESP - WordPress Themes or the demo at Portfolio - WPESP Theme.

    I hope it can help some of you.

    Looks very nice. :-)

    In the "view casework" page you might have a spelling mistake. "previews" should be "previous" I believe.

    Also I would put "view website" above the next and previous links or maybe separate them from the menu, but that is just personal taste.

    Otherwise looks beautiful. Nice layout.

    Mucho thanks man, awesome!

    It took me 5 days to get it. I read through the thing dozens and dozens of times. No offense, but with so many people asking the same questions, perhaps you could adjust the "tutorials" a little to help people on their way.

    Granted, learned a heck of a lot in the process.

    Here's a tip to everyone having problems getting the 'about' and 'contact' pages working, which is also what I had the most trouble getting to work. Click on 'Pages' in your dashboard, then click on edit. Select the 'about' page to edit it (create an about page if necessary) and under the Attribute on the right, change the Template to the default template. That's what I did and now its looks like the demo.

    Now I just need to figure out how to get the form working... ;)

    Hi quantumryan,
    If you had learned a lot in the process, probably is not a very bad idea don´t have all the info at the tutorial.

    The tip do you have explained, have an other way to do too. Check the index.php.

    Sorry for my bad English ;)

    Wassup everybody,

    First of all, I would like to thank Víctor García for creating this theme and making it free, which is good. It saves a lot of time when you dont have to search for a premium theme hosted somewhere on the internet.

    I downloaded WPESP theme straight away as I saw it, but when I dropped it to my wp-content/themes/ directory and activated through Admin Panel it seemed to be kinda empty. Well, it was empty, despite 6 test posts.

    No worries everybody, it's all working now and I've got the steps that you need do to make it work. It took me quite some time (tutorial at wpesp.com isn't worth to be called tutorial), so I'm going to share it with you in order to save your time.

    So I go:

    1. Navigate to Categories in your Admin Panel and make a new one called Work. After you do so, create another one called Featured and under Category Parent select category you created a second ago - Work. All of your works are going to be posted under Work category and only the chosen ones under Featured. Thats simple.

    2. Go and write few test posts under Work and Featured categories and don't forget to fill up Portfolio Post Settings which is bellow the writing area at your New Post screen. Thumb Panel Image and Panel Image will be resized automatically so it's all good.

    If you checked your website now, you should probably see that it's working. Well, not yet. Try to click on any post you want and im sure that you'll see an empty page. Am I right? Damn yeah. To avoid this, you need to:

    3. Click on Categories at your Admin Panel and move your mouse over Work category in order to edit it (press Edit). Well, stop right there. Now look at the address bar and you should see long url with the ending of something like this:


    You can clearly see, that my Work category ID is 27, not 3 like it's set by default in index.php.

    What you need to do now is open Index.php file for editing and find line 7 in which you can see

    elseif( in_category(3) ) :.

    That 3 in there is by default and is no good for most of us, unless you have a fresh install of wordpress. So change number 3 to YOUR Work category ID and save it.

    Visit your page, it should be working as a charm now.

    P.S. English aint my national language, so pardon for any mistakes I did. Just wanted to help you out there, fellas.

    Peace out,

    I'm having trouble getting the contact form to display. I downloaded the cformsII plugin and activated it. I created the Contact Us page and corrected the cforms.php code as described in the tutorial. I also changed the cat_ID to the correct number for the contact us page. Any ideas of what I'm missing?

    It didn't work for me at first, then I did all the stuff you mentioned and also edited permalink to contact-us through Admin Panel. Still it looked pretty messy, so I removed all the Contact page and edited it to be a link to my blog, since I'm going to put my contacts in About page.

    Try to do as much editing as you can, since it gives you some individual look and feel.

    Can someone help me figure out how to do a couple of things?

    1) I want to only display work in the category "Featured" in the Coda slider but still have all the work in all the categories displayed below.

    2) I would like to create other subcategories (ie, Print, Web, Video, etc) and separate the thumbnails below the Coda slider into their respective categories....

    Any idea? I'v tried so many things and I'm not getting anywhere...

    Thanks for the tips on this theme. They really help. It's a great theme.

    One thing that I can't get to work is adding the "New" to some of my posts. Do I take care of that with a tag or another category? I've tried both and neither seem to work.

    Thanks for any tips in advance.

    Hi all,

    Just a warning: be aware that this theme contains Google Analytics tracking code. This means that the owner of that account can check the statistics of every website that has this theme installed.

    To remove the tracking code, do the following:

    1. Open the footer.php file in the wpesp-portfolio theme folder
    2. Scroll down to the bottom and select the following code:
      <script type="text/javascript">$(document).ready(function(){$.getScript('http://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js',function(){if (typeof(_gat) == 'object'){var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker('UA-6031180-2');pageTracker._initData();pageTracker._trackPageView();} });});</script>
    3. Delete it :))

    I left a comment onthe theme author´s blog 3 weeks ago about this issue, but it was never published.

    Anyway, it´s a great theme, so don´t let this stop you from using it!!

    Agreed. I've tried to edit the theme's php files..with no luck. I need to set up my portfolio for an award next week.

    Having the same as everyone else but guide by Justafa was v helpful and I got that bit working - thanx:)

    I'm now looking to create a section/page for each categories so that I can divide my work into categoies that show on different pages and that you can navigate to via the menu. I can see that MMMLabs has done this nicely, where each category is listed in the menu and you can select the category of work you want to see.

    - can anyone tell me how this is done??

    i would like to know how to get the about and contact pages working as well...i've tried everything listed here (though I have very little CSS experience so maybe I'm missing something).

    I've installed the cform plugin, activated it, set the about settings to 'theme default' and checked that all the code in the php files matches what's in the tutorial...

    To get contact and about pages working you have to alter the code of index.php and footer.php (to fix the footer links as well). I also did the same with header.php to be dead-sure it's right.

    so open up the php file and find a corresponding section
    for example in index.php link to contact section looks like this:

    elseif(is_page(contact-us)) : // Page Contact
    include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/contact.php');

    link however isn't failsafe this way cause its adressed only partially (thats why it works for some without altering). to correct this replace 'contact-us' with array(4,'contact-us','contact-us'). This will link to the page ID (to check it go to the pages section in wp-admin and check URL on 'view')title and slug as well.

    also in header.php i changed this:
    <li><a <?php if ( is_page('about') ) { ?> class="active"<?php } ?> href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/about" title="Go to the About page">ABOUT<small>Professional Life</small></a></li>

    to this:

    <li><a <?php if ( is_page(array(2,'about','about')) ) { ?> class="active"<?php } ?> href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/?page_id=2" title="Go to the About page">ABOUT<small>Professional Life</small></a></li>

    same for the footer.php file. I'm not really sure which part makes it work or maybe its the whole (it's probably the last part with changing '/about to /?page_id=2'), but im happy as it is and won't mess around anymore :p

    now trying to get the contact form to work :p

    hope this helps
