The first thing to understand about setting up a portfolio is that the portfolio is a custom post type in Avada, in the same way the blog or FAQ is. So, setting up a Portfolio requires you to create Portfolio items, and then you display them on your site in various ways, by using the Portfolio Element, much like we create individual blog posts and then use the Blog Element to display them on our pages.
The Portfolio Custom Post Type is similar to the ‘Post’ Post Type in WordPress. It gathers your portfolio items together and provides options for Categories, Skills, and Tags, which allow for further filtering and sorting down the track. Categories and Skills can also be customized with language files if you want to have your own personalized headings.
The Portfolio Custom Post Type and the Portfolio Element, together with the Avada Theme Options and the Avada Page Options, offer an enormously wide range of choices, to give you a multitude of ways you can set up a Portfolio on your Avada site.
