    Hi.

    I love the Ubud theme. I’m also new to WordPress.com I have some questions….

    1. Above my images on the portfolio page there is the word “Archive”. How do you delete this?

    2. As I roll over an image, the image lightens but the type does not appear on the image but near the top of the page – on top of the page title.

    3. I have three images uploaded as Portfolio feature graphics. Also, I have selected the 4 column theme grid. Two images are stacked on the left side and one on the right side bottom. Nothing in the middle.

    4. The portfolio page doesnt show up on the main index page. Instead, I have to click on “Overview” then it takes me to the index page but with a /portfolio

    Sorry for all the questions. I love the theme but having some technical questions.

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

    Hi,
    thanks so much for your feedback, I’m happy that you like the Ubud theme! Regarding your questions:

    1. The Ubud theme is not prepared for the WordPress.com portfolio feature, but instead you can just include all your projects right into blog posts and then add categories to your projects to filter them in the main menu.

    2. Again I think the problem here is that you are using the portfolio feature, instead of “normal” posts. If you use a “Featured Image” in a regular post, the image will show up as the preview image, like you can see it in the Ubud live demo.

    3. As I mentioned in the first answer, for Ubud you would just need to use the default post feature, instead if the Portfolio to add your projects (you can deactivate comments i the posts, if you like).

    4. For Ubud you can just leave the standard blog as your front page and the post will show up with featured images (if you have set them). I’m sorry for the confusion with the Portfolio feature, the Portfolio format is a very new in WordPress.com and Ubud was created before this feature existed. So therefore Ubud uses posts, but in my opinion will also work great as a portfolio theme.

    I hope I could answer all your questions and help you out. Please let me know, if you have any additional questions.
    Best, Ellen

    Thanks! It works! I love it.

    One question. After looking at the live demo I notice a series of links at the top (food, travels, city life, etc). Each of these links also has grid of images generated from post feature images. How do you do that? When I create new pages it only shows the content I placed – not a grid of images.

    Hi,
    great, it works now! Regarding the main navigation, you can just add categories into your navigation (like I did with “Travels” etc. in the live demo) by using the custom menu feature under Appearance / Menus.

    This way you will receive a collection of all posts in this category.
    Best, Ellen
