ok, now I’m a bit lost, lol. But basically without having to create a new theme file(s), the method I posted is the better one I think. Create a page with the right column, add the portfolio layout for how many columns you want, then each portfolio item you want, you create another page using the right column template and with that you can add your photos, content, anything you want. Just link to this page from the link button on the portfolio items. So in a sense, you will have one page that is your main portfolio layout of items, then the button links to a page that contains the subject matter of the portfolio item.
