Add A Portfolio To Your WP Website With Portfolio Post Type Plugin

This is the first of a video series on WordPress portfolio plugins.

I inaugurate the series with the free Portfolio Post Type plugin by Devin Price and Gary Jones.

Steps In Building Your Portfolio Page

In the video below, I show how to use the Portfolio Post Type plugin on a Twenty Twelve child theme.

The portfolio items will be displayed using a tiled grid layout. Clicking on each item lands the user on the single portfolio item page.

The steps I present in the video are:

  1. Creating the child theme using the latest recommended practice
  2. Adding and activating the Portfolio Post Type plugin
  3. Creating the menu link to the portfolio page
  4. Adding portfolio items
  5. Creating a specialized template for the portfolio archive page and the single portfolio item page
  6. Styling the portfolio template pages
  7. Including and initializing the JavaScript Masonry plugin.

Let’s begin!
