Tinkering with Flat theme

Use custom field in portfolio

1. Add following to functions.php

add_action('init', 'schoolie_init');
function schoolie_init() {
add_post_type_support( 'zee_portfolio', 'custom-fields' );

2. Add a custom field demo_url to the portfolio posts

3. Locate \wp-content\themes\flat-theme\lib\shotcodes.php

Locate following lines:

<a class="preview btn btn-danger" href="<?php echo $img_src; ?>" rel="prettyPhoto"><i class="icon-eye-open"></i></a>


<a class="preview btn btn-danger" title="<?php echo $value->post_title; ?>" href="<?php echo $img_src; ?>" rel="prettyPhoto"><i class="icon-eye-open"></i></a>

Replace the above lines with:

<a class="preview btn btn-danger" href="<?php echo get_post_meta( $value->ID, 'demo_url', true ); ?> " target="_blank"><i class="icon-eye-open"></i></a>


Fix the Breadcrumbs to work properly

Inside file \themes\flat-theme\lib\breadcrumbs.php


    <a href="<?php home_url(); ?>" class="breadcrumb_home"><?php esc_html_e('Home',ZEETEXTDOMAIN) ?></a>


    <a href="<?php echo home_url(); ?>" class="breadcrumb_home"><?php esc_html_e('Home',ZEETEXTDOMAIN) ?></a>

    Hello @Vajra.

    Just checked your site, and breadcrumbs seem to be working fine. (Clicking on “Home” on the breadcrumb redirects to the home page. This wasn’t working originally.)

    Isn’t that what you are trying to achieve?

    Hi Bruno: I am not aware about the comments problem with Flat theme, unfortunately. So yeah I don’t have a fix for it.
