Creating a portfolio page

Portfolio page can be created in three ways:

  1. Archive page for portfolio items
  2. Using Portfolio Page template
  3. Using WPBakery Page Builder widget Portfolio Items

Second and third options provide control on items you want to display and categorize the way you want.

To have a portfolio functionality for your theme you should have the Portfolio Post Type plugin activated, make sure you have already installed it.


Archive page

Portfolio archive page will display all portfolio items by default. This is not a page and can’t be modified, it inherits all the options set in Theme Options > Portfolio Settings

To access portfolio archive page simply add /portfolio in the end of your site URL (unless you have changed this in custom portfolio prefix) for example:


Portfolio Page template

  1. Go to Pages and click Add New or edit an existing page
  2. Select Portfolio Page template from Page Attributes metabox

Portfolio Settings tab will show in Parameters and Options, there you can overwrite settings set in Theme Options only for that page.

It supports numbered and endless pagination types.


Portfolio Items from WPBakery Page Builder widget

  1. Go to Pages and click Add New or edit an existing page
  2. Select Portfolio Items widget
  3. Apply your parameters for titles, query, layout display and pagination
    • Settings set here will overwrite those from Theme Options
  4. Click Save Changes

Portfolio Items VC widget does not support numbered pagination (only endless loader)
