Number of Recent Projects displaying on homepage

  • Hello! I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong here. I have the number of recent projects to display set to 5, but it’s displaying all of them. Is there a way to make this work? Or do I have to nix my idea that I can use the project function for our team pages as well?

    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

  • Hi,

    That setting only applies to the page that is using the home page template. It appears that your home page is using the portfolio page template which will show all projects.

  • Thanks for that answer. I see the issue now. However, when I set the page type for my “home” page to “Home” it removes the portfolio navigation from the top. That defeats the purpose of having multiple portfolios because no one can access them. Is there a work around for that?


  • You’re welcome.

    The portfolio project type filter navigation is for filtering projects that are on the page. So if the projects that are visible on your home page only have one project type, the filter will not be visible.

  • Interesting. I do have two types in the 5 books currently displayed there, but the “To the Rescue” type only shows up when I up the number displayed to 6, and it brings in the “crew” staff page. Why wouldn’t it include at least the To The Rescue type?

  • What is the other type? When I do a view source of that page, I’m only seeing that “Boned every which way” and “the necronaut” have a type associated with them. That is “to the rescue”. The other 3 projects do not have a type assigned to them. Can you double check your admin to make sure that those other 3 do have a project type?

  • Super helpful. I wasn’t thinking about the types correctly. Now I’ve added “Spaceboy Books” type, which will cover our standard books, and To The Rescue covers our charitable books.

    I wish there were a way to create a portfolio page for the staff, but it doesn’t appear possible… unless you have an idea?

    Thank you

  • Glad you got it working.

    I’m afraid projects are meant for portfolio items. I can’t think of a work around. However, if you are just wanting a grid layout for your staff, you could create columns on a standard page. Here is an article that explains how:

    Advanced HTML

  • Heck, one more since I’m curious. Is there a way to remove the limit on number of portfolio projects featured on the home page?

  • You can set the number of projects in the Customizer.

  • Right. I see that. But it says “max 15”. I’m wondering if there’s a way to remove that max?

    Thank you again.

  • Also, wondering if there’s a way to include mobile-only CSS to make the project images display a little smaller, rather than using the whole screen.

    Thank you again in advance. I apologize for taking up for your time, and thank you for the great theme.

  • We’ll look into the possibility of increasing that limit. It might take a day or two to make the change and get it approved.

    This CSS will make the projects smaller on mobile:

    @media screen and (max-width: 700px) {
       #projects {
          max-width: 300px;
          margin: 0 auto;
  • Thank you! The mobile display looks great now, with a little negative space to scroll without jumping to another page!

    Thank you for looking into increasing that limit as well! I really appreciate the help you’ve offered me. This theme is great, and your service is exceptional!

    I’ll look forward to your future reply.

  • You’re welcome.

    I’ve increased the project limit to 30. It might take a few hours for the change to show up in your customizer.

  • Thank you very much!

    If we get to 30 books, I’ll probably ask how to up it again, but that’s a bridge to cross later on.

    Thanks again.

  • You could also try using the portfolio page template for your home page. It does not have a limit.

  • Oh, duh. So, setting the “home” page to the portfolio template does exactly what I was looking for? Thank you. I figured it would screw with the homepage widgets or something. Thank you for all of your help, again, and again. :D

  • You’re welcome.
