    Hi,

    I have followed instructions to get the portfolio front page up to the ‘static front page’ option. From the drop down menus all I have is ‘about’ and not the portfolio/journal options as described. I am completely new to word press…please help!

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is: stylestarling.wordpress.com

    Hi there,

    I’m so sorry that I did not reply earlier to your question. I think you got your Front page set up by now, or? Please let me know, if you need further help and I will answer asap!

    Best, Ellen

    I have the same problem. I did everything it said in the activate portfolio page thingie, but I can’t choose the portfolio template from the static page menu. It just displays my pages. Is the template missing? I can’t activate the about page template either, I had to copy the css manually but the color is still missing. I am a total wordpress noob, just so you know ;)

    Hi @sundaymorningsattheriver,

    I think you might be in the wrong option box, could you check again inside your newly created Static Page for the Portfolio, if you can find the Page Template under “Page Attributes”?

    Hi Ellen, I was in the customize the them option box in the sidebar and I set it also on the static page I created. I can’t get the portfolio when I use that shortcode either on a page, and I don’t get the about page template to work either (I’ve been browsing forums and support pages for a long time). I think they just didn’t download or something. In the about page I was able to fix it with the custom css that you provided somewhere, but that is why it doesn’t have the color in the background. I can find the page template title in page attributes, but nothing happens when I activate it. This goes for both the portfolio as the about page. This is the site I am working on and I can officially launch it when I fix the portfolio thing, so I am really hoping we can fix this: http://sundaymorningsattheriverzine.wordpress.com Thank you.

    @sundaymorningsattheriver,

    I saw that you got the about page working with the template already. Chould you let me know the link to the new, empty static Portfolio page you created? Is page should have the Template “Portfolio” (you don’t need to include any shortcode). If you then choose this page as your static Front page in the customizer, you should be able to see your portfolio projects on the front page.

    Did you have a look at the support tutorial about setting up your Portfolio already?

    I hope my answer is helpful!
    Best, Ellen

    I think it had something to do with the fact that I was on wordpress.com instead of self hosting? I had the portfolio up yesterday but there was no grid. It probably has something to do with the jetpack plugin or whatever. I got a bit fed up so I am moving to self hosting, but that will take a while since they have to transfer my domainname. I have spend so much time on all the forums and tutorials Ellen. The portfolio was working, there was just no grid, and I bought this template for the grid.

    Hi there,
    I’m so very sorry that you had such trouble setting up the portfolio. If you want your website on a self-hosted WordPress site you will not be able to use the same theme you purchased on WordPress.com though!

    You can ask for a refund of your WordPress.com theme purchase within 30 days from your purchase date (see more details here) and then you would need to purchase the Onigiri theme version for self-hosted/WordPress.org websites directly from our Elmastudio website.

    I’m so sorry that there is no easier way. I hope my info is helpful, please let me know, if I can assist you any further!
    Best, Ellen
