Portfolio Theme Options

30/05/2019

There is a range of both global and local options for the various parts of the Portfolio system. Here, let’s look at the various global options that affect the Portfolio.

General Portfolio Options

Firstly, the General Portfolio Options are located at Avada > Theme Options > Portfolio > General Portfolio, from the WordPress dashboard. These options deal almost exclusively with portfolio archive page settings. Archive pages are the automatically generated pages you get when you click on a Portfolio Category, Skill, or Tag on the front end. These archive pages display according to the options chosen here. See the Portfolio Archives & Filters documentation for more information on this.

  • Portfolio Archive Layout –  Controls the layout for the portfolio archive pages. Choose between Grid or Masonry.

  • Portfolio Archive Featured Image Size –  Controls if the featured image size is fixed (cropped) or auto (full image ratio) for portfolio archive pages. Choose between Fixed or Auto. Note: ‘Fixed’ will use a uniform image size generated by the theme. ‘Auto’ will use the image’s natural size and scale according to your layout in proportion with itself.

  • Portfolio Archive Number of Columns –  Controls the number of columns per row for portfolio archive pages. With Carousel layout, this specifies the maximum amount of columns. This ranges from 1 – 6. Note: Masonry layout does not work with 1 column.
