How to add items to your portfolio

All of our themes feature built-in portfolio functionality to make it easy to showcase your work.

To add a new item to your portfolio, hover over Portfolio in the left-hand menu of WordPress and click on Add New.

This will take you to the Add Portfolio Page which looks very similar to the classic WordPress editor.

Adding an item to your portfolio is just like adding a blog post. Start by giving it a title and then add any content you wish using the content editor. We highly recommend assigning a featured image to your portfolio items as these will be displayed on the portfolio page.

Just as with blog posts, you can create categories and assign them to your portfolio items. These categories are separate to the categories you have set up for your blog.

When you have finished creating your portfolio item and you are ready to share it with the world, click on Publish.

Once you have added some items to your portfolio, you can view them by going to https://YOUR-DOMAIN.com/portfolio. When you click on an item on this page you will be taken to the relevant page in your portfolio.

Why can’t I see the portfolio page?

Firstly, check to make sure you don’t already have a page or blog post on your website that has the  /portfolio permalink as this could be causing the issue.

If you still cannot see the Portfolio page, you may need to reset your permalinks.

To do this, hover over Settings in the left-hand menu of WordPress and click on Permalinks.

Once on the Permalinks page, do not change any of the settings on this page. Instead, scroll to the bottom of this page and click Save Changes.

This action will reset the permalinks and you should now be able to view the Portfolio page.
