  1. Hi – Thanks that is a first class tutorial. Is there a tutorial that would show you how to float right new panels of information on a page that could be added ( like a ecommerce or shop websites page layout )´╗┐

  2. I'm SLOWLY learning PHP. I know I prefer to learn it than turn to 101 plugins to solve my problems (though there are times you don't need to reinvent the wheel)…

    I found this generator for Custom Post Types [┬áhttp://www.weareo3.com/wordpress-custom-post-type-generator/ ] real handy as I can see the code and the correlations my choices have…

    Do you know how I'd go about doing the Custom Fields in code? I am sure that plugs into my Functions as well; while the plugin you use here looks slick, I'd like to start down the rabbit trail that leads to me learning it myself. Can you push me in the right direction?´╗┐

  3. Great tutorial. Can and How can I use this to build Multiple Portfolios? I Want to have 1 Main Portfolio Page that sows all the images for different Portfolio categories and to be able to select a category.

    What Do I mean?
    The "Main Portfolio" Page  will have the top section
    The following Filters:
    Art, Music, Health, Movies
    The 3 images that link to 3 Portfolio categories (3 peoples portfolios):
    1 Maria 2 Lukas 2 Sam

    Below that will have all of the images and links to all 3 portfolios.

    The I like to have 3 "Sub Portfolios pages" for:
    1 Maria 2 Lukas 2 Sam
    and each will have its own "Filters Selection":
    Art, Music, Health, Movies

    How can this be done?´╗┐
