Jumbo Content: Portfolios

Your theme comes with a Portfolio post type for showcasing showreels, design, art, photos or any body of work that can be represented with images or video. Portfolio items can be arranged by logical categories similar to "albums" that help viewers filter results on your portfolio page. Each Portfolio post is intended to showcase a single project or body of work . For example, a graphic designer may have one post for an advertising project which displays a featured image of the finished product, and several additional images of the work as used on posters, magazine ads, or photos showing the process of making the art. For photographers, your portfolio posts may only have one image per post, which is then assigned to a common category such as Landscapes, Fashion, etc.

Themes with a portfolio slider may not support featured videos on single portfolios.

  2. Enter the category name and click Add Category

Additional Tips

You may have additional images for a single portfolio such as photos showing a different angle or detail
How these images display in your theme depends on the theme’s design. Many of our themes create a slider if multiple images are uploaded to the post, otherwise they will be shown in a list.
