A portfolio is a set of pictures (such as drawings or photographs) usually bound in book form or loose in a folder.

The guideline below about the Portfolio List widget will get you to walk in the right way to use the widget developed by Element Pack. 

Moreover, I’ll show you the way in different phases of how you can insert & use the widget to design layout for the content (text, image, and video, etc.)  you want to work with and style as well. 

To Insert Widget

Inserting widget, it is just a matter of drag and dropping. Before inserting the widget, you’ve to make sure, you’ve activated 3rd party plugin ‘Portfolio’ and added items. As you see in the screenshot above.

Content Tab

Using the content tab, you’ll be able to make a layout of a particular part of a website. And in this regard, some handy sections in the tab will assist you a lot.


Here, you’ll find two controls Horizontal Layout and Pagination. If you, with the default vertical layout, want to get a Horizontal Layout, Just go to the Content Tab >Horizontal Layout.

After selecting the Horizontal Layout, you’ll be provided Columns controls. From there, you can set columns (two, three, four) and also you can set the Pagination.


This section works for setting the source location of data that you need to display by the reference like Author, Categories, Tags, and Formats. The references can be different in accordance with the source location. Read more
