    Hi All

    I have followed the instructions for setting up a “Portfolio” in Minimum Theme on both a sandbox and active instance.
    I have “saved” Permalinks settings. I have also contacted Support Team and have no solution to why the Portfolio is not working. I suspect, operator error, but the instructions are not rocket science. Please Help!

    Software Running:
    WP 3.6.1
    Genesis 2.0.1
    Minimum Pro 3.0 Installed

    Supporting Information:

    The “portfolio archive page” that should exist: http://www.lexpose.ch/portfolio
    I create two test portfolio posts per the instructions: http://www.lexpose.ch/portfolio/test-1 and
    /test-2-2 Each “post” has an image in the body, one set as featured and text in the body

    Thanks in advance for whatever insight you can provide.

    Did you create a Page, select the Portfolio template, Save and then try it out?

    Hi Anitac

    No, I did not create a page because the “Portfolio” is a custom_post_type thus not required per my understanding of CPTs and the instructions.

    I suspect the problem has to do with issues regarding “flushing” my permalinks after changing the theme. A 404 error seems to be a common issue with CPTs when changing themes.

    I tried “re-saving” the settings as the instructions indicated and other discussions I read suggest. Unfortunately, nothing is working. I hesitate to “force a flush (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/flush_rewrite_rules) because I am not a coder and I’ve no idea how to do this correctly or if it is even the “root cause”.

    The support group would like full Admin access to my site: but before I go to that extreme, I was hoping someone here could help me troubleshoot. This was never suppose to be so difficult *sigh*

    With the support of Studiopress Technical Team, we narrowed down the problem I was having to a plugin. The culprit: “GetMeCooking Recipe Template”. Once we turned it off, Voila! Everything operational. The latest version of the plugin (1.25) resolved an interference with correctly registering custom post type permalink rewrites.

    Once again, I am reminded that PLUGINS, however stable they may seem to be or however long you may have been successfully using them, can wreck havoc on a new Theme installation. Turning off plugins before a new Installation is probably the appropriate protocol … Now I know!

    Thank you to Anitac from cre8tivediva for her kind support as I was struggling to understand the issue.
