Each portfolio item you create also generates a corresponding Portfolio Single Post page. The single post page is the full portfolio post and associated content such as featured images, project details, Project URL text, Copyright URL text, etc. In this article, we’ll be explaining all the relevant sections in a single post page and how you to configure it to your preference. If you’d like to display all your portfolio items on a single page, you can use the Portfolio Element. You can see a demo of our Portfolio Single Post page here.
Upload Featured Images
- Featured Image Box – For each post you create you can upload one or more featured images (the default is 5). Avada provides Featured Image Boxes in the post editing page and this is where you upload your portfolio or project Featured Image/s.
- Featured Image Slideshow – If you upload more than one featured image Avada generates a featured image slideshow on the single post page. View a sample here.
- Number Of Featured Image Boxes – By default you can upload 5 featured images per post, however that can be changed globally by going to Theme Options > Slideshows > Post Slideshow Images and increasing/decreasing the number (min. 1 – max. 30).
Featured Image Dimensions
The ‘Featured Image Dimensions’ option (Image width and height) is located in the Fusion Page Options > Portfolio section of the posts page. Values are set in pixels or percentage, ex: 100% or 100px. Or Use “auto” for automatic resizing if you added either width or height.
How To Upload A Youtube/Vimeo Video
Step 1 – Go to the ‘Portfolio’ tab on your WordPress admin sidebar and clicking ‘Add New’ to add a new post.
Step 2 – Give your portfolio post a title and add your content as normal.
Step 3 – In the Fusion Page Options box, switch to the ‘Portfolio’ tab, then find the ‘Video Embed Code’ option.
Step 5 – Click ‘Save Draft’ or ‘Publish’.
Selecting The Column Width Layout
Each Portfolio post you create allows you to set the width of the Featured Image’s column. This option is called the ‘Width (Content Columns for Featured Image)’ option and you can set it to be Full Width or Half Width. You can also set the entire Portfolio post to display 100% of the browser width.
These options are located in Fusion Page Options > Portfolio section of the posts page.
- Default – This is the global value that is set in Fusion Theme Options > Portfolio > Portfolio Single Post > Featured Image Column Size
- Half Width – This option lets you set the Featured Image column on the left side of the screen, and the Project Description and Details column on the right side. View an example of a Half Width layout here.
- Full Width – This option lets you set the Featured Image to display full width on top of the page, and the Project Description and Details below it in two columns. View an example of a Full Width layout here.
- 100% Width Page – This option lets you display the entire Portfolio Single Post page in 100% of the browser width. View an example of a 100% Width layout here.
The Project Details section contains meta information relating to the project. For Full Width layouts, the Project Details are placed in a sidebar next to the Project Description. For Half Width layouts, they’re displayed below the Project Description. Avada allows information to be added to the Project Details section. See below for each type of information you can add.
- Categories – Categories are pre-defined taxonomies used to sort and group content into different sections and making it easier for the user to filter and select the relevant portfolio items they prefer to view. On the right side of the page, you’ll find the ‘Categories’ box. Here you can add unique portfolio categories to the post and posts can be assigned to one or more categories. For example, Web Development, Web Design etc. You can also access and edit Categories from the Portfolio > Portfolio Categories tab on your WordPress admin sidebar.
- Skills – This is meta information you create to help further define your portfolio posts. On the right side of the page, you’ll find the ‘Skills’ box. Here you can add unique skill tags to the post. For example, HTML, PHP, Illustration. Each skills tag is a meta link that your viewer can click to view similar type of portfolio posts. You can also access and edit Skills from the Portfolio > Skills tab on your WordPress admin sidebar.
These Project Detail options are located in the Fusion Page Options > Portfolio tab.
- Project URL & URL Text – This option lets you insert a Custom URL and text for the project. This is perfect for when you have an external link to show the viewer, or an internal link to another page or post of your site.
- Copyright URL & URL Text – This option lets you insert a Custom URL and text for the Project Copyright. This can be useful for a project that might have been a collaboration with another person or company.
