Portfolio

Another professional widget in Kata is called Portfolio that allows you to create and showcase a sample of your works on different pages like an album.

The portfolio feature functions like a post, so the first thing you need to do is going to your WordPress dashboard and defining a category and post for it. Then we can use it from the editor page in Elementor.

You will need to do the following to add a Portfolio item.

  1. Click on “Add Portfolio Item”
  2. Choose a title for your Portfolio item
  3. Add more information if needed
  4. Here you can assign and add the category
  5. Here you can add tags similar to how posts work
  6. And finally, you can set your preferred image
  7. Save your progress by clicking on Publish

To add a category to a Portfolio item, you can navigate to the Portfolio Category option in the Portfolio sub-menu.

Tags can also be added in a similar manner as discussed above.

After adding your new item, setting up the category and tags for it, it’s time to create our Portfolio using Elementor.

Find the element you’re looking for by searching for the keyword “Portfolio” in the search bar and select it.
