How to Add New Portfolio Posts

This article refers to WPZOOM Portfolio

Once you’ve learned how to create the Portfolio section in previous article, it’s time to populate your gallery with some posts.

Create a New Portfolio Post

Portfolio posts can be added from the Portfolio menu in the Dashboard:

Please make sure that you are not using other plugins that register Portfolio posts in your WordPress site.

Usually, the following plugins also include a Portfolio Post Type:

Jetpack – this plugin also includes a feature that can register a Portfolio post type in your WordPress site, but since this is not needed by Inspiro theme, just disable it from Jetpack Settings, by searching for “Portfolio”.

Using a plugin like Post Type Switcher you can easily convert your existing Portfolio posts to work with Inspiro Portfolio posts.

When creating a new post, make sure to assign an existing or a new Category (Portfolios) to it and to set a Featured Image, which will be visible in the Portfolio block.

In the editor you can insert blocks with text, images, galleries, videos, etc.

[PRO] Video Lightbox in the Portfolio Block

You can attach a YouTube/Vimeo or self-hosted video to each Portfolio post in the Video Settings area:

In the Self Hosted File option you can upload a MP4 video or insert a direct link to a video file hosted somewhere else.

Recommendations for Self-hosted Video Files:
1. Video format must be MP4 with the h.264 encoding. You can resize/convert it using Handbrake.
2. We recommended to keep your video file size small (5-20MB) to load fast enough on 3G/4G connections

In YouTube/Vimeo option insert the public URL of the Video you want to display in the lightbox feature.

When viewing the Portfolio block in a page, a video icon will appear when hovering portfolio posts with a video lightbox:

If you don’t see this icon, make sure that the Lightbox feature is enabled in the Portfolio block:
