A portfolio is a collection of projects. It is also an excellent way to show your work to clients and prospects. SpicePress features filterable projects. This means that you can categorize the projects and allow your users to filter their view according to these categories. You can also choose the layout that best fits your requirements and that you find most appealing between three types of Portfolio templates: 2 column, 3 column, and 4 column.
To create your portfolio with SpicePress, follow these steps:
1. Create a Project Category (if you want to take advantage of the filtering features)
To create the categorized portfolio, you need to start by creating your project categories. These will display as filter tabs and allow your viewers to see your projects filtered by specific categories.
To do this, in your WP Admin Panel, head over to the Projects tab and click on Project categories. Here you will be able to add all opportune categories with which you wish to filter your projects (i.e. graphic design, photography, illustration, web design, and so on)
2. Create a Project
Now you need to create entries for each project, these, combined, will make up your portfolio. To start adding projects, in your WP Admin Panel go to the Portfolio tab and select Add New

- add a link (optional)
- choose if you wish the link to open in a new tab
- Add a description
- Now select the category/categories for your project.
