Quick question. I’m an independent archivist trying to build a basic personal website, but I want my portfolio to include pdf files such as my thesis and other academic publications. Is there a way to add pdf files here? So far, no theme can do that for me, and I’m a bit out of luck…

Hi Rebecca,

Actually most themes can do that for you, it just takes a bit more work to do it. So for example you would upload the PDF file either directly to your ftp server, or through the WP Media upload, and then you would grab that link and actually send somebody to that link when clicking an image.

With Dash you won’t be able to do that with the actual “Portfolio” shortcode (the one with the images and the page links), but you’ll be able to fit it in right below.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hey, I just want to say thanks for making this theme. This theme is awesome, and it works perfectly with what I’m doing. I have 5 major website sections, as well as the blogging area on the main URL, but I’m using this theme for episodes, movies, and series listings.

I was wondering though if you planned on upgrading it too Wordpress 3.9.1. I uploaded an archived file of Wordpress 3.7 via FTP, and successfully installed your theme, but I decided to go ahead and try upgrading my core files to the most recent version of Wordpress.org. It still works great, although I’m still a little worried about hackers being able to do something, etc.

I regularly make back-ups of my databases, so this isn’t a huge concern for me, but I was just wondering. The other issue of course is compatibility issues.

Hi Sethlayton,

There was a reason why we haven’t issued an update for Dash when WP 3.9.1 went out, and that’s because it came with nothing new, so the theme’s as compatible with it as it was with any WP. You’ve certainly got nothing to worry about, and worry not, we haven’t dropped support for Dash and will issue updates as soon as any bug is found or as soon as any new software is launched which needs additional code.

Thanks!

Hi, just thought you’d like to know the live preview is failing for your DASH card. shows up as:

Not Found

The requested URL /Dash_HTML/index-blur.html was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Hope you get it fixed

Hi Katw,

Thanks so much for the notice. We’re moving hosts and due to the lack of professionalism Hostgator is showing, we’re encountering a few problems, but it should be fixed in the next few hours.

Cheers
