I decided to use Black Canvas to build a site for an artist who works with glass (www.frankzika.com
) because the thumbnails appeared to offer an elegant, visual sub-navigation system for viewing individual examples of his work within two separate categories, Architectural and Sculptural. However, after building the site, I discovered that although the thumbnails for each category appear along the bottom of the page when the user first selects the category from the drop-down menu (under "Portfolio"), once the user clicked on any thumbnail in that category, all the category-specific thumbnails were replaced with thumbnails from all categories (in this case, from both Architectural and Sculptural categories in order of the most recently posted).
What I would like to have happen here is to maintain the thumbnails from the current posts/current photos for the selected category (i.e., have the thumbnails work as a sub-navigation tool within the selected category) and never have the option of seeing all the recent posts/recent photos, which happens now when the user clicks on any of the thumbnails in, say, the Architectural category. Currently, clicking on any of the thumbnails in the Architectural category (which were the first photos/posts I posted) results in the most recent photos/posts posted (which are in the Sculptural category). I want the user to be able to use the thumbnails as a sub-navigation tool within the category and, if they want to check out the other category, they go to the primary nav bar, select the alternate category, and have the same inter-category click-ability.
Thanks for help with this. It appears to be a loop issue linked to recent.php (and other files?).
