Showing off your work or press mentions on a WordPress website turns out to be a challenging task. The task is even more difficult if you want to show off more than just images. In this article, I present 3 easy options to display portfolios. And I even made an example site to demonstrate the 3 methods explained here.
First, let’s take a look at the kinds of content that you may want to showcase on your website:
Images are the most common type of portfolio content to show off photos, artwork, drawings and infographics.
Videos are great for videographers or if you were featured in a video interview.
Links to external sites – if you were interviewed or contributed an article to a high profile website, a link accompanied by a short excerpt or screenshot is a great way to present that content.
Documents – Essays, news clippings, stuff in PDF format; or presentations and slide decks are also portfolio-worthy
Article – Sometimes the best way to present your work is by telling a story through a case study or blog post. With this format you can combine the different kinds of content above for a rich and engaging portfolio entry.
