Hi! Thanks so much for creating this awesome theme! I’ve been customizing it and had a question about the blog page set up. Ideally, I’d love the blog to show a number of the full blog posts with numbered links at the bottom to past and previous posts. Similar to this blog: http://www.michellegardella.com/blog/?page_id=6282

Is there anyway to have this functionality with Fineliner? Thank you so much!

The blog list page will only display the excerpt by default. In order to change that, you would need to a bit change the code in “index.php” file. Please find this:

if ( trim( $post_excerpt) != '' ) {
                                echo wp_kses_post( $post_excerpt );
                            } else {
                                the_excerpt();
                            }

And change it to:

the_content();

This should helps!

You’re welcome! Glad I could help! :)

Hello again :)

I had another question that hopefully you could help with…is it all possible to have the portfolio items link directly to a single blog post? I am adding lots of images to a blog post and it would be double work to add them to a gallery or by adding separate image items on a portfolio page. I would love to directly link to the blog post so it’s much easier to add more items in the future.

Thanks again so much!

Hello!

Unfortunately there is no option for that. Since the portfolio and blog post are different post types so they have their own single page by default.

I am not sure whether any other third party plugins out there could do as your requirements. You can try google using keywords like “portfolio plugin wordpress”.

I had tried another plugin which I decided not to go with and I ended up breaking the code somewhere when I deleted it – I had to start over :(

I ended up creating a separate page without the filtering option of the Portfolio page but changed the css to create similar rollover effects for the images. From there, I’ll link the grid of images directly to their respective blog posts. So in one way, it’s kind of good there isn’t that option as it took me quite some time to figure out the css haha :) Thanks again so much for your response to my questions! I can’t wait to get this template live!
