Linking Portfolio image to a Page not to a blog post

Hi there
I installed your theme yesterday and it’s great. I am having trouble with the following: I have installed a portfolio on the home page using jetpack. When you click on the images though they send you to a blog post type page and I just want a plain static page with a gallery that one can click on. I create a page and tried to past the url into the portfolio top section but that is not working.
My site is : http://debendern.com
The example I have been working with is: http://debendern.com/portfolio/http-debendern-com-btc-pipeline-page/
The other images only link to empty pages for now
Basically I want my portfolio projects to look like pages, or ideally I would like to build a page myself. No date, no weird layout (for now there is lots of white at the top of the page)
Any help would be great! And if this is more of a jetpack issue please let me know!
Best
Sam

Hi,

Let me clarify,

  1. You entered the “Custom Portfolio Link” in the portfolio edit screen,
  2. And in this page http://debendern.com/portfolio/ when you hover or click the portfolio item you want the link to the link you set on the appropirate portfolio section?

If so, it seems a bug in the theme, I already reported this to the developers, to fix it use this Child theme, http://take.ms/2YxjT it will solve the issue.

Let us know,

Thanks,

Hi
Thanks for your answer.
Unfortunately I have no idea what you mean when you say instal the child theme… I had a look on the wordpress site to figure out what a child theme means and it seems that I have to make changes to the CSS but I have no idea how to do that…
I tried using the file you sent me as a new theme but I just get an error message when I try to upload it as a new theme. See images of screenshots I have included
What should I do? I really like the theme and do not want to go to the trouble of downloading a new one especially after all the trouble I put in to building a site using this one… am happy to try to make the changes but I have no idea where to begin…although I have tried everything I can. Can someone at colorlib walk me through this?

As I said I donwloaded the child theme you sent me but when I try to upload the various files as a new theme this is what I get:

I tried to download the child theme a second time as i thought there was an error and this is what happens:

Moreover now when I press on the picture for Baku-Tbilissi-Pipeline in the portfolio section of the home page I get sent to a link that says that drafts cannot be previewed. The project is not saved as a draft however but as published.

Finally I have now realised there is another problem, which I only noticed after my first support request, which is when I or anyone else goes to the site on a mobile device a screen with writing comes up and people have to press on “view full site” in order to get to the site with images and the homepage. Is this a theme issue or a wordpress issues?

Many thanks and really looking forward to your reply so that I can start getting the site out there and market it asap!
Best regards

Hi,

Child theme is not another theme, you can read more about it here: Child Themes « WordPress Codex it is just another theme that will extend the parent theme’s functionality, so that without altering any code of the parent theme we can extend its functionality. Hope this helps.

Try download the child theme from here: Monosnap or http://take.ms/2YxjT

Let us know,

Thanks,
