Adding a Portfolio Item

The Portfolio menu option on the left is where you add portfolio items. To add a new portfolio item, select the Portfolio > Add New option from the left hand WordPress menu. There are lots of portfolio options that you can set on a per-item basis, these include meta information such as client/sub-title/external link, and also display options for the main detail. You can set both thumbnail and detail media independently.

Once you’ve added your portfolio, you can display them on any page using any of the Portfolio Page Builder assets.

NOTE: DO NOT set the posts page in Settings > Reading, as this will force your page to show the archive layout, and not follow your created page.
