Portfolio Layout

    I must be missing something here, because I cannot find a way to have a category set up as a Portfolio without getting some weird site effects. I see that any options for the layout of the Portfolio only apply to Pages, yet when setting up a “portfolio” you are asked which Category and if it should be excluded from the main page.

    So when I set a category as being “portfolio” then use my custom menu to navigate to that “portfolio” category, it defaults to no side bar four posts across. Which I could live with, but when you click on an individual post to read more about it, there is a ton of back-end junk that suddenly shows at the top of the post. Stuff like this, for example:

    GRAPHIC CONTENT / PACKAGING snapFB: s:248:”a:1:{i:0;a:8:{s:4:”doFB”;s:1:”1″;s:8:”PostType”;s:1:”A”;s:10:”AttachPost”;s:1:”1″;s:10:”SNAPformat”;s:0:””;s:11:”isPrePosted”;s:1:”1″;s:8:”isPosted”;s:1:”1″;s:4:”pgID”;s:31:”100005193571342_123757474474038″;s:5:”pDate”;s:19:”2013-03-13 12:31:39″;}}”; snapEdIT: 1 snapTR: s:532:”a:1:{i:0;a:8:{s:4:”doTR”;s:1:”1″;s:11:”SNAPTformat”;s:0:””;s:12:”apTRPostType”;s:1:”I”;s:10:”SNAPformat”;s:302:”

    Einstok Beer, an excellent Icelandic export. I love the simple, bold color palate, and the well-considered typography. I’ve been to Iceland once, if being in the airport counts. It was quite green.

    “;s:11:”isPrePosted”;s:1:”1″;s:8:”isPosted”;s:1:”1″;s:4:”pgID”;i:45263798819;s:5:”pDate”;s:19:”2013-03-13 12:31:46″;}}”; snapImportedComments: snapTW: s:233:”a:1:{i:0;a:7:{s:4:”doTW”;s:1:”1″;s:10:”SNAPformat”;s:23:”%TITLE% – %SURL% %CATS%”;s:8:”attchImg”;s:1:”1″;s:11:”isPrePosted”;s:1:”1″;s:8:”isPosted”;s:1:”1″;s:4:”pgID”;s:18:”311816892471971841″;s:5:”pDate”;s:19:”2013-03-13 12:31:55″;}}”; snap_isAutoPosted: 1

    Then the post shows normally below all that stuff. My question is, is there a way to have a category be the portfolio and still control the display without having to make a page to display all of these categories in? Or does the portfolio option only work specific to a page, and not a category of posts?

    Thanks for your help! You have an amazing skill at creating beautiful web page layouts!

    You can configure the number of columns in theme options or use a custom template. The content on single posts looks like a var_dump and is not added by the theme. Check to see if a plugin is not generating it.


    I didn’t see a way to configure just the Portfolio designated Category under Theme Options, but I did find another way to do what I needed – which was to exclude one category from the home page. I’m not sure why the var_dump only occurred on the category posts designated as Portfolio, but by removing that designation the back-end code went away.

    Thanks for your help!
