Creating a New Portfolio Project

This theme uses a custom post type called Projects to help you manage your portfolio. To add a new portfolio piece, select Add New under Projects in the left hand menu. Use the main text editor on the Project edit page to insert images, videos, text or other media. You can also use the Page Builder to create unique layouts for your single project pages.

To categorize your projects, you can assign Skills to them. The Skills box is located in the right column.

Project Options

When creating or editing a project, you will notice a Project Options box below the editor. Here you can set several options to customize the way your project behaves and appears.

  • Featured Image Size: set the size of the project featured image as it will appear in masonry layouts.
  • Lightbox Image: set an image that will appear in a lighbox when this project is clicked in a lightbox enabled portfolio widget.
  • Lightbox Video: set a video that will appear in a lighbox when this project is clicked in a lightbox enabled portfolio widget.

On the Bramble Portfolio widget settings screen, there are a number of options that allow you to configure your Portfolio display and give it a style of your own. Once you are finished configuring the widget, click the Done button and then Save/Update the page.

Keep in mind that the Portfolio Widget is designed to only be used within the Page Builder environment. It’s not recommended to place it within a sidebar.
