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.
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.
