I just purchased the Swank theme and sure is having problems understanding this Portfolio business. I like the homepage layout a lot and that is one reason I purchased. But I am not quite getting the Portfolio. I saw the tutorial and all.
Are the portfolio posts separate from regular posts. Can the two be linked somehow?
Also, the Genesis Design Palette Pro plugin – cannot find it in the plugins (I see DPP with Google fonts and other stuff).
The Portfolio is a custom post type, which means that it is neither a regular post or a page. This means that it won’t automatically update like a blog, and will not display on your blog page.
Before creating your portfolio, go to Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks > save your settings.
Then, to create your first Portfolio post, go to Dashboard > Portfolio > Add New. Create a portfolio post; add a featured image. Publish. You portfolio is now published, and the URL will be in the format of http://yoursiteurl/portfolio
The Genesis Design Palette Pro (which is not used in the demo with the Swank theme), is available here: https://genesisdesignpro.com/
Oh wow! Quick reply! So whatever I post in the portfolio will not show up as a post? You mean I have to do two separate posts? One for regular and the other for the portfolio?
If you want something to appear in your Portfolio, and your blog, you would either need to create a separate portfolio post, or create a portfolio post with a custom redirect URL to your blog post.
I haven’t heard of anyone wanting to do that, and it could probably hurt your SEO if you do that with all your posts. I guess it just depends on what you were intending to use the Portfolio for.
