Once it is enabled, you will see the Portfolio added as an item in the left-hand menu.

You can immediately see from the Portfolio sub-menu that it looks very similar to how you might add new Pages or Posts. For Portfolio, you will be creating new Projects.  Projects are similar to Pages or Posts.


Just like Pages and Posts can be assigned to Categories, Portfolio can be assigned to Project Types.  And you can also assign Project Tags to Projects.

Conclusion: WordPress Portfolio Not Useful

I played around with WordPress Portfolio but I didn’t find it particularly useful.  Hence I am not bothering to write up a detailed how-to tutorial on WordPress Portfolio.  It is all very simplistic but not the most intuitive.  And the output layout – well, there is nothing special.

You can refer to the reference section below.  There are some useful articles and videos for anyone interested to give this a go and want to set up their WordPress Portfolio.
