Creating a list
Most of the settings have defaults so you can create lists within just a few minutes.

Once a list is created you can edit it any time from Portfolio Manager -> Portfolio lists. You can also get the shortcode for a certain list there.

Add a list in your site – top

Once you have created a list you can add it everywhere in your site

  • In page/post content area (WYSIWYG editor)

Every list has a shortcode that can be found in the Portfolio Manager menu -> Portfolio lists. You can use the shortcode to add the list in a page/post content area. You can also add it in a template file by using the do_shortcode WordPress function.

The plugin comes with a widget that can be used to add any portfolio list in a sidebar.
