Hi there!

Just installed Honest and I have a couple of questions:

1. How can I make the portfolio page my homepage?

2. Where do I edit the contact info shown on the expandable contact information area?

Hello,

1) Open ‘archive-work.php’ Add this at the top:
<?php
/*
Template Name: Portfolio
*/
?>
Now you`’ll be able to create a page that uses the Portfolio template and select that page as a static front page. Create a page Page -> Add new -> Select as template “Portfolio” -> Publish. Next: Settings -> Reading -> A static page -> Select the page you just created that uses the Portfolio template.

2) Edit the Footer-Contact page, or create it. Everything inside it will be put in the expandable footer contact section -> see documentation

Using the HTML template, and despite following the instructions I can’t seem to make the DARK theme work. Any insight here? Thanks!

(I’m not a profesional programmer, so apologies if this is super obvious.)

Hi, thanks for your purchase. You have to add

<link href="css/dark.css" rel="stylesheet">
in the <head>, after the “responsive.css” stylesheet. Make sure you have the dark.css file in the css folder.

Perfect, thank you!

Hello,

Just purchased this – its seems very nice! But I have 2 questions.

- I’m wondering how I can active the Slider on my home-page? Just as it was showed in the preview. I want my home page to be a static page, with the slider on it.

- How or where do I insert the contact-formula that will show, when my user are clicking on the ‘contact us’ button in the buttom of the site?

Thank you in advance, Kristina

Hello,

All your questions are covered in the documentation, but here’s a quick run down. We suggest you import the demo data and start from there. If you don’t want to do that however, in order to build a slider, go to ‘Honest Options’ in the admin section of WordPress. From there go to ‘Home Settings’, create your slider and save your changes. Next, create a Page, from ‘Pages’ (WordPress main admin menu) and assign it one of the homepage templates that features a slider (1,2 or 3). After this, you must go to ‘Settings’(main WordPress menu, just above ‘Hones Settings’) -> ‘Reading’ and select ‘Static Page’ as a front page display. From the associated drop down list select your newly created page and you will have the page that you just created, with the slider you made as your front page (this is WordPress normal stuff).

For the second question, create a Page and name it ‘footer-contact’. In this page you can insert whatever content you want, and it will show in the bottom of the page, in the expandable contact section.

Should you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

hello,

I’m working with the “work” section or portfolio/gallery section and i would like to know if i am able to have a project in more than one category?

Renascenthemes

Hi. Yes, you can assign more than one category to a project, as seen in the demo. Add the category names as classes, with spaces between them.

Default-user

could you show me an example of that?

Renascenthemes

Sure. On the main portfolio page, each project thumbnail is in a list element. Add the classes like in the following example:

<li class="mix all categroy1 category2 categroy3 group" />

Cool! Like it;

I love the design.

Hi,

The Previous/Next buttons don’t function in the Work section. It doesn’t work on the themforest preview page and also locally for both html and php version. Can you please advise on how to fix this?

Thanks VL

Renascenthemes

There is no “fix” as it is not broken. It’s a template, meaning the implementation of part of the functionality is up to you. It varies depending on weather you want to use a blogging platform like WordPress, an other CMS or build your own CMS.
