Disable feature for portfolio sub-pages 7.1

Recommended Posts

I have been building a new portfolio site in 7.1 using a portfolio page as my homepage. Intially I thought this was a great feature, but it now appears it is missing some basic functionality – specifically, the option to disable/hide the portfolio sub-pages. Firstly, without this functionality it is not possible to build a sub-page in the background and make it live when you are happy with it – it is immediately live, which is surely no one would want (other page types have a disable function to keep them invisible from site vistors). Secondly, a disable/hide function would allow you to create a portfolio with lots of pages, and then select which ones to display in the main portfolio page – meaning you could keep your portfolio fresh by swapping projects in and out very easily. Without this functionality, the only option is to delete and then rebuild the sub-pages, which is very time consuming!

Has anyone else come up against this issue and perhaps come up with a solution? And could anyone who wants this functionality please email customer support to request it – they will only prioritise it if enough people ask.

If you share link to portfolio page & which sub page you want to hide, we can check easier.

We solved some similar problems.

I have stopped working with portfolio for several reasons:
- As you say, it's either live or delete. No ability to hide the item.
- There is a limit of max 40 items. (I discovered that the hard way after importing 40 cases, after that you will be stuck and you are forced to delete a portfolio item if you want to add a new)
- Changing item order only works if you move it up 1 spot at the time. If you try two, all other items will rearrange

I also experienced this issue, with subpages changing order seemingly at random...

I also don't understand why certain settings have to affect portfolios site-wide. For example the cropping ratio – it appears you can't have one portfolio on your site cropped to 1:1 and another cropped 3:2. Clearly consistency of presentation has been prioritised which makes sense, but being able to override certain controls without the use of custom CSS would be useful.

I'm running in the same issue... I have portfolio pages that I want to hide, but there is no way of doing this other than deleting it.

In the meantime, if you share link to your site, I can give the code to hide sub pages

I'm running into this too trying to set the number of columns to be different for each portfolio page. I building a site with 3 different portfolio pages. I'd like fore each one to have a different number of columns. Does anyone know of a way to do this while we wait for a possible future update?
