This tutorial shows how to work with Portfolio page in WordPress. Portfolio page can also be called Works, Products, Gallery etc.

Manage portfolio content

In order to edit portfolio page please log in to WordPress administration panel and go to Portfolio section

Portfolio section looks like posts. Each item in the portfolio can be modified as simple WordPress post.

Items in Portfolio section can be placed into different categories.

To add new item to the portfolio go to Portfolio > Add New. Input item title and content. Also assign it to some Portfolio category

To create a Portfolio item thumbnail please use the Featured Image section at the item editing page.

Upload image and click Use as Featured

If you want to activate lightbox you need to use custom fields section. Add new custom field with the name lightbox-url. Into the custom field Value section input the link to the lightbox image

Portfolio page layout

Working with the WordPress theme you may have noticed that Portfolio page content can be displayed in several columns: 1 column, 2 columns 3 and 4 columns. Portfolio page layout can be controlled through the page settings.

In WordPress admin panel go to Pages and select portfolio page you want to edit. Then in the right column select desired page template

    Since the “featured image” is automatically shown at the top of it’s page, I sometimes want to link the image to a URL. But I don’t seem to have that ability. How can I assign a featured image to a page (for either portfolio or blog pages), without it showing up on the page? Or if it must be on the page, how can I link the featured image to a URL??

    Depending on your template you can hide the featured image through CSS or edit the portfolio/blog page templates from the wp-content/themes/theme###/ directory and remove the featured image output/assign link to it.

      Unfortunately, it’s impossible without additional template customization.

    We had an event on our portfolio page over the weekend, and now I’d like to remove it from public sight, but want to keep on-file (archives). Do I change Published status, Visibility status, Move to Trash, or something else? Pls advise…thanks!
