Gird Portfolio custimization

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys,


Hope all is grand. Have a quick question about the Grid Portfolio plugin, wonderful as it is!


I am working on a site, and am looking to add a number of custom fields to the content format, and which will automatically draw through to the Grid Portfolio portfolio layout and then the page itself. So, looking to make a 'child' of the plugin for this.


Site is www.wlfn.org


As you see from the landing page is a film network blog / site, where film makers can load up their short films! I am trying to add Custom fields "directors name; length of film; and so on" to the hover section but can't for the life of me find the right section to adapt. At the moment it would show the films title.... and can see how that's pulled through.


Have created the fields on the template page! 


Any advice or pointers would be appreciated. Am using the plugin Advanced Custom Fields to create them (had a look through pagelines but could not see anything similar).


Am a keen but novice PHP beginner....

I have moved this to the correct support forum. 

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

<p>Hey Tim,</p>


<p>I can add some action hooks to the next release if you think that would be helpful. Are you comfortable adding content via hooks ?</p>

Hi Adam,


thanks for the reply. I think custom hooks so that specific content (custom fields) can be captured and displayed would be great in the next release.


Am slowly understanding the use of hooks and less coding in Pagelines. Any pointers or advice for me, to say display a custom field of the 'directors name of the film' below the films title on the gird portfolio page (www.wlfn.org). Or point me towards good documentation.


I am also trying to display certain information about the film in a specific way (say in its own widget) in the right-handside bar when they click through to the film.


Let me know your thoughts and thanks for the help.


best wishes

      Can anyone guide me please?
      I would like to learn how to achieve custom fields and going to give ACF plugin a try.  I have watched all the videos and read the documentation and all is good except I can find the template files for the pages and posts.  I believe I should be looking for the file single.php but what about posts?  Is the reason I can't find them because I am using a framework? Pagelines Framework?  How can I add my custom fields to the templates on Pagelines Framework?
      Any guidance would be appreciated please.

      I am using PL5 as well as Advanced Custom Fields (AFC) to help add meta data to individual posts on our blog. However, where I am getting stuck is how to display the meta data on the actual public post page (frontend). For example, if we have posts that have a subject matter of plants then there are custom fields that the client fills out such as "Scientific Name", "Region", etc. I have used ACF before to display this meta data onto the loops section as well as in Revolution Slider or Essential Grid. However, I am not sure if there is a way to have this metadata display on the actual post page. Can you point me in the right direction? I am using a child theme so I wasn't sure if that meant I had to edit the functions.php file or if there was some other workaround that you knew of.
      Thanks so much!

      We are building a Custom Post Type with Custom Fields and Custom Taxonomies.
      The only thing we dont understand is how to embed the Custom Fields including header tags and stuff in the Postloop (now we use a text-box below the postloop section but also SEO wise this is not best pratice).
      So we thought to copy the dms Postloop section to our child theme and rename this, to add an extra Postloop section to our theme. Is this the way?
      What exactly to adjust in those 3 files class.posts.php, section.php and style.less (at this point we know how to change the thumb LOL) and where to add the Custom Fields shortcodes?

      I got messages from my Sucuri plugin that Boxes, and Grid Portfolio are getting updated by someone other than myself. They were being changed from private to published posts. Here is the message from Sucuri:
      Subject: Post Update
      Login Info:
      Time: April 10, 2015 8:39 am
      Website Info:
      Site: http://piepho.com
      IP Address:
      Boxes (private to published); identifier: 1965; name: Responsive &amp; Mobile
      The Grid Portfolio developer responded to my email inquiry as follows:
      "the section that I built on then v2 of PlatformPro was done in a very typical manner using the PageLines methods available from the core theme. Any security holes would be in the framework as a whole a not specifically to Grid Portfolio."
      Can you please tell me if this is a security issue, and if so, what can be done about it. 
      Thanks very much,

      I found that I'm unable to create and save custom field groups with WP Types when Single Bits is installed and active.
      I'm not sure if it interferes with any other functionality, but there's definitely an issue with custom field groups.
      When I deactivate Single Bits, I'm able to create custom field groups.
      Custom fields appear to be fully functioning after creating them and reactivating Single Bits, so that's good.
