Setting up the Portfolio

Before we get to setting up the Portfolio Widget we have to setup the portfolio.

  • Install and activate Jetpack by WordPress.com.
  • Go to Jetpack > Settings.
  • Activate Custom Content Types.
  • Click on Configure. This will take you to Settings > Writing.
  • Scroll to the bottom. Look for Your Custom Content Types heading.
  • Check the Portfolio Projects option.
  • Once checked you should see the Portfolio post type in your admin sidebar.

Adding Projects

  • Input the title and content for your projects just as you would for blog posts.
  • Add the Project Types. (This is similar the Categories in Blog posts. ) The Project types are used for the Portfolio Filter in the Widget.
  • Add a Featured Image.
