    Actually solved the problem. But I have a bigger one, as I need 2 separate portfolios both with their own categories. Is it possible?

    Cheers,
    Anna

    Hi Anna,

    Glad to hear you were able to get the slideshow sorted.

    It’s not possible to have two portfolios unfortunately. You can however add two different category pages to your menu and they’ll each display as shown in the category template in the demo here: https://photographerdemo.wordpress.com/category/category/.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Rebecca,

    In that case I need try out the category pages. However, I don’t have it in my templates. How can I get one, I understood the theme should include one?

    Hi Sauli,

    The category page template works differently than a normal page template. You will create a new category under Posts > Categories and then add this category to your menu. If you navigate to Menu > Add New Items, one of the options should be a category.

    Thanks!

    Hi Rebecca,

    Everything else sorted out. I only need to find out a way to have the site in 2 languages. What are my options?

    Hi Anna,

    Glad to hear you got everything sorted for the above. In terms of multi-lingual sites, you can view your options for this on WP.com here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/set-up-a-multilingual-blog/.

    Thank you!

    Hi

    How do I change the order of the images in a slide show?

    I know how to insert new images & I can find the library of images “uploaded to that page” but I don’t see where or how the order of the slide show images are determined.

    Hi Gail,

    The images are displayed in the order they are uploaded from most recent to the oldest published. The only way to re-order the images at this point is to ensure you have them uploaded in the order you want when you first create a slideshow.

    Thank you,

    Rebecca

    artistsincahoots – a guide to editing a gallery or slideshow is here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/gallery/#editing-a-gallery-or-slideshow

    If you need more help with a WordPress.com slideshow, could you please post in the general Themes forums with a link to the post or page that has the slideshow you need help with?

    https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/themes

    If you’re referring instead to something specific to the theme, could you provide the link here and the theme developer will have a look.

    Thank you Rebecca So to recap, if I want to add one but have it come up first, then I have to delete them all and then reload them in the order I want?

    Hi Gail,

    You may be able to drag and drop the images to the order you want them to show in the Gallery section as shown in the tutorial Kathryn referred to above, however this isn’t always respected and something we’ll be working on updating in the theme to make it easier to work with. In the meantime, it is a question of re-doing the slideshow so it can display in the order of your choice.

    Thank you,

    Rebecca

    I’ll check out the tutorials referenced by Kathryn.

    I had already tried dragging and dropping the individual images into a different order in the gallery, and that didn’t work. It’d be great if you could enable that function.

    Thank you for being attentive to these issues. It’s a very nice theme.

    Glad to help Gail! :) I’ll definitely pass that on to our developers.

    Let us know if we can help with anything else.

    Thanks!
