The Portfolio is a page that displays a set of posts by category or all categories, depending on what you choose.
The first thing to do is create some Posts. When you create your Post, add a title, some content and make sure to upload a Featured Image (optional). The Featured Image that you upload will be shown as a thumbnail on the Portfolio page in line with your other posts (take a look at the demo for an example).
To get your portfolio page setup, first go to your Genesis Theme Settings page – http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=genesis. If you scroll near the bottom of the page you will see “Portfolio Page Settings”. This is where you can configure the necessary settings for your portfolio.
Next, you will need to create the page that you would like the Portfolio to be displayed on. After you have added a title and content, make sure and select the Portfolio template which can be found on the right hand side of the page editor.
Click publish and you’re done! You can click the “View Page” button to see the results.
Currently, the portfolio options allow you to select all categories or one specific category to be displayed. However, if you need multiple portfolios that show one specific, or multiple specific categories, you can learn how to do that here – http://appfinite.com/tutorials/how-to-create-multiple-portfolios/
Most of our themes use “prettyPhoto” which is a popular lightbox clone made with jquery. PrettyPhoto can be found here at this link –http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/…ightbox-clone/. This is already setup and configured to work properly with your theme. If you would like to make additional customizations like changing the theme styles of the plugin, adding effects, or more, you can visit their site for more details and tutorials.
