I am having problems creating a presentable portfolio in WordPress. I am struggling to get the Portfolio Grid that my theme comes with to display my content as I want to see it. Images are often a different scale than expected, they’re also have different proportions making the images appear warped. This is theme I am using: https://themeforest.net/item/blanco-creative-resume-portfolio/20348420
• I want to be able to create & display projects containing multiple text content next to them.
• I’d also like to know how to make Portfolio grid on my homepage made of thumbnails, that when clicked on can take the visitor to their respective project.
These “projects” could be in a portfolio, a post or page. I am open to suggestions to achieve the above.
But, you’ve already got a theme for your site. So, in your case, the best course of action is going to be to reach out to the creator of the theme for support:
Ask them why you’re experiencing issues with images appearing at different sizes and such.
If you don’t get the kind of support you need, you can still reach out to the experts at Codeable and get help: https://www.wp101.com/help/
Of course, you could always choose a different theme, but that can be challenging if you’ve already spent a great deal of time setting up the one you have.
Still, I think in the long-term, you’ll be much better served by a proper theme created by a company like Studiopress, rather than one from the thousands of individuals who sell themes on Themeforest/Envato Market, but offer sketchy support.
Hope this helps!
Thanks Shawn thats helpful.
Are there any other businesses you would also recommend for Themes?
• At this moment in time price is quite important to me
• As is suitability for a artist designers resume/portfolio site
Would recommend a good page builder?
• I’ve been using WP Bakery but it seems quite limited (maybe its just cos of the theme).
• Divi looks really cool and intuitive but carries a scary price tag
Thank you 🙂
You bet! We’ve got a list of several theme companies we highly recommend on our “Products we ❤️” page:
As for page builders, I recommend you look at Elementor and Beaver Builder. Those are the two biggest players, and most likely to adapt to the changes in the new, Gutenberg Block Editor era. The next phase of Gutenberg, which will be under development during 2019, is to add layout blocks. That could greatly affect page builders. But today, I’d recommend you look at one of those two plugins.
Hope this helps!
