This module will let you add two different types of content, portfolio projects and testimonials. These are a bit like pages as they stand outside the chronological flow of post. But they can also be organised with Types and tags. Finally they can be displayed on a page via a shortcode.

Activate Jetpack plugin, if not already activated Dashboard->Plugins

Activate the ‘Custom Content Types’ Module- Dashboard->Jetpack-> Settings

Enable Portfolio Projects and/or Testimonials in Dashboard-> Settings -Writing.

Set up a page to display the projects.

You add a project in the same way as a post or a page. Featured Images are important if you are going to display al grid of your projects using the shortcode.

Here is a an example of using the shortcode.
