    as you can see from the pic, the point file goes out from the floor based AP, goes horizontally and then back to the AP.

    And all of my portals besides this one is only showing the skybox.

    You have an areaportal leak. Basically, turn off everything except world geometry (displacements aren't world geometry) and try to fly from one side of an areaportal to the other without passing through a world brush or another areaportal. If you find a way, block it off with a brush or an areaportal.

    but shouldn't the point file go through any holes?

    Yes it should. Sometimes it fails for no apparent reason. Try resizing the areaportal brush to fit perfectly to the hole, while keeping it very thin (~16 units wide) ?

    looks like it was a func_breakable piece of the floor. I got rid of the portal and everything seems to be fine now.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Only "world brushes" block vis. If you want to keep your areaportal, make a new one near the func_breakable to avoid leak.
