How to Add a Beautiful, Functional Portfolio to a WordPress Website



Setting Up a Beautiful Portfolio Using Envira Gallery

If you’ve ever found yourself in a pickle and wondered how you can add a portfolio to an existing site, one that doesn’t have a premade portfolio included, you’re going to want to take a peek at this guide I just found.  It’s probably one of the best, most comprehensive guides I’ve seen to how to make this happen.

If you would like to add a portfolio to an existing WordPress website, you have quite a number of different options. We are going to go over several of the most popular ways to add a portfolio, and talk about some of the things that you might want to avoid. Of course, if you have a WordPress theme that already offers pre-made portfolio or image gallery, you are in luck. But, many themes don’t offer pre-made portfolios, so you are stuck at a bit of a crossroads. You could always switch to a theme that already offers a portfolio, but that can result in lost traffic and that is certainly something that we want to avoid it.

If you are just getting started and haven’t selected a theme yet, we do have a collection of WordPress portfolio themes that might be of interest to you. These themes are real time savers, they have built-in portfolios and a lot of different designs that can make your content look great.

Most of these themes offer all of the features and functionality that premium plugins like Envira offer, although generally they don’t have quite the amount of flexibility and features. But, they can be a very good option for people who are a little bit budget-conscious. For $60, you can get a theme with an outstanding and flexible portfolio. Some of these premium image Gallery plugins like Envira Gallery, can cost over $100. Of course, the free versions are free and if you only need a very simple portfolio, they can work just perfectly.

However, if you have an existing blog and want to add a portfolio to it, this guide will walk you through the process.

So, in this article, we will highlight wanted tried-and-true method for adding a portfolio to your WordPress site that doesn’t break anything, doesn’t slow your site down and doesn’t cause headaches in terms of SEO.

Hopefully they’re going to keep that site updated.
