brand new user - ILLUSTRATR theme - can my portfolios be my static home page

  1. Hi! Brand new to this. Id like my static home page to be my portfolio page, is that possible (insert question mark - mine dont work)

    Also, cant find my pages..or portfolio...just a blank page:
    http://chimerajewels.wordpress.com

    Thanks guys!

    The blog I need help with is chimerajewels.wordpress.com.

  2. Your portfolio is here
    http://chimerajewels.wordpress.com/portfolio/

    You should also be able to find your pages the same way, by adding /nameofpage to the end of your base URL

  3. Also, looks like there are alot of questions about how to make it your static home page. I'm wondering the same thing, too, so hopefully someone will help us out. ;)

  4. Here's what I found - and it worked!

    Portfolio Page Template
    This template will display your portfolio and allow you to set your portfolio as your site’s home page.

    When you first activate Illustratr, your posts will display in a traditional blog format. If you would like to show your portfolio projects on the front page of your site (like Illustratr‘s demo site), just follow these instructions:

    Create or edit a page, and assign it to the “Portfolio Page Template” from the “Page Attributes” module.
    Go to Settings → Reading and set “Front page displays” to “A static page.”
    Select your portfolio page as the “Front page,” and then choose another page as the “Posts page,” (to display your blog posts).

    By default, page title and content will appear. You can hide them if you prefer by going to Appearance → Customize → Theme Options and check “Hide title and content on Portfolio Page Template” option.

You must log in to post.
