Customization Options

The shortcode will display projects in different ways, depending on how you use the optional attributes to customize the portfolio layout.
By default, projects of all types are shown by date in ascending order, organized into two columns with visible project types, tags, and an excerpt of the project’s content.
You can customize the way the projects are shown, by adding attributes to your shortcode.
