How to use the Portfolio Posts.
Portfolio posts will create a /portfolio directory for these posts only. They keep things separate from normal posts and pages.
Add a Portfolio Post
Goto Portfolio → Add New
As with normal Posts / Pages, add a title and then content if required.
Individual vs Attached Media
You can use Portfolio Post types in two ways.
Each Portfolio Post can act as an individual gallery slide e.g. an image. See below for more information.
You can control each slide specifically with timeout options for Stage, embed Vimeo/YouTube videos etc.
Slow method if you require to add a vast amount of images.
Each Portfolio Post can act as a host to many images/media by attaching the media to that Portfolio Post Category. See Attached Media for more information.
A very fast method of adding a vast amount of images/media to a Gallery.
Limited control of individual slides e.g. Only Title and Description can be modified via WordPress → Media.
Individual – Image
Set an image using the Set Featured Image option.
Individual – Video
To add a video – enter the URL of your video. This can be a YouTue,Vimeo or locally hosted video ( locally hosted requires JW Player setup).
Select the Embed Video Type and a Gallery Slide Timeout (set to the length of the video plus add a couple of seconds for buffering).
Fine tune your slide by selecting from the Additional Settings panel and individual Gallery options.
Add to Portfolio Category
As with normal Posts, create and add the Portfolio Post to a category and publish the post.
