I am not sure if I am not seeing the wood for the trees, but inserting a gallery to my frontpage has got me stumped. I also cannot seem to find the “our works” template, which I thought looked really good and could have been used as a gallery I had hoped.
I installed Envira & tried with Huge IT but no luck. I inserted the Envira shortcode into a text row but the obvious happened… I have the shortcode displayed in the section on the frontpage.
I am a WP beginner - I managed until now but I am majorly stuck with this
Any help is much appreciated!
Thanks a lot!
The “Our works” is using portfolio widgets, have you try to use it? You can check the tutorial here https://athemes.com/documentation/sydney/#portfolio
Thanks for offering advice, Awan… but still, I am stuck.How do I install the portfolio plugin or paste the shortcode? I am completely confused by the tutorial section. I read about adding shortcode to text row to be able to create a gallery- as I mentioned I have Envira installed as well but I don’t understand how to create a (ideally) masonry gallery row on my frontpage. I think I’ve been trying to solve this for too many hours so I can’t think of the solution. Can you help?
Please make sure that you install the portfolio plugin from this page https://athemes.com/documentation/sydney/#portfolio
The portfolio widget are using featured image when displaying the thumbnail image, so when you create a portfolio item, you have to upload a featured image also.
Then to display the portfolio widget to the front page, you can use Text widget to put the portfolio shortcode.
Let me know how it goes.
