    hello! I’m considering using this theme for my portfolio but I was eondering if it’s possible to add a slideshow? like once the featured image clicked that leads to the page explaining the work with several pictures. I would like them to be in a slideshow and not under each others. it’s a feature that’s possible with the Fukasawa theme that I’m also considering…

    Is it possible for the feature image of blog posts to appear as if it were a portfolio page?

    The video is outdated, and i’m stuck at "Edit Pages". What do I do from here? I don’t have an "Portfolio Page" option, only "About" and "Contacts"?

    I could use some help. Since I got WordPress I’ve never had a portfolio option visible in my menu. No matter what theme I have installed. Any ideas?

    Is there a way to move the tiles after making the project? Also, can you change the tile size? I don’t like how all of my tiles are small and not in the order I need them to be.

    I really like this theme. One problem I have is that I can only show 7 projects on my portfolio page, everything more than 7 will go to next page. It won’t create a infinity scroll like they showed in the demo.

    Working with Blask on WordPress.org, I would like to get the portfolio feature. Would I have to add the code to use this or is there another way to make this available for the projects I have? I have Jetpack and Portfolio appears in the dashboard column, but I can’t create the multi-column grid.
    Thanks.

    Hello Patrick. I have started following your steps however after I post a project, there is no portfolio tab in menu, except for Home and About. Do you know how to add it?

    Hi, I have a question. In the Blask Theme live demo, when you click on a project to go to its page, it shows the Project Type next to the post, e.g "Posted in App Design". However, when I assign Project Types to my projects, they do not show up in the post itself. Tags on the other hand do, and I guess I could just use them as a replacement, but I’d really like to see Project Types instead like in the live demo. Not sure what’s going on, any help please?

    Hi Patrick, great video! I am currently using the blask theme, and was wondering if I can use the ecommerce plug in if I upgrade to the premium. I love the blask design but am trying to sell things on the site. If you know anything about this it’d be a huge help and I would really appreciate it! I am new to this world!

    Hi Patrick,

    Thanks for the tutorial. The black box that appears when hovering over an image on the front page; is there any css code to switch it off? I’d rather have it without, hope it’s possible!

    Hi Patrick,
    First of all, I want to say thanks! This helped me make a neat portfolio easily. My only problem is, can I make 2 separate portfolios? I want one for my projects and one for the reviews I make. If you want to see the problem, go to nishatblagh.wordpress.com and go to the 2 other pages I’ve made.

    Hi Patrick. One final question. Do you know whether it’s possible to have specific number of posts in the homepage (portfolio page)? They way it is now, I always get a different layout every time I post a project (even if I backdate them). Thank you in advance

    Thanks!! You just save me so much time trying to make the theme working and loking perfect!!

    Hi,

    Thanks for this tutorial! Very helpful.

    I still have a question about the portfolio pages. Is there a way to change the order of the projects/portfolio images on the "home"page?

    Cheers

    is there a way to restrict the number of grid columns for the portfolio page?

  35. Klara Belle May 29, 2017 at 12:28 am - Reply

    Hi Patrick. Great tutorial. I did experience one issue however, and I’m hoping you may be able to help. When I go to ‘pages’ there is no ‘portfolio page’ option as per your tutorial. Despite trying several things I was unable to add/locate this option. As such, I was unable to continue with the rest of the tutorial. Are you able to help please? You mentioned in a response below that it may need to be activated. If that is the case can you please explain how this is done? Thanks so much!
