    Greetings! So, we’re working on adding portfolios to the site. At this point, I’m not sure if we should be using a portfolio vs a gallery, but this is what we’re doing:

    1) We have *disabled* the Portfolio in the theme options. This means the portfolio won’t appear on any site page, automatically.

    2) We have manually created some projects in the ‘Portfolio’ section. We have three projects created and when I view the “Portfolio” page (i.e. www.{mysite}.com/portfolio/) I see the featured images for my projects and links to each portfolio. The links work and the featured images appear just fine

    3) When we view an individual portfolio, the content appears as expected.

    My questions:

    1) When viewing the “Portfolio” page, the page header reads “ARCHIVES: PROJECTS”. That text appears in a <div> with “section-title” as a class. Below that, the text “Portfolio Items” appears. Is there any way to control the text that appears at the top of the “Portfolio” page?

    2) Is there any way to control the order in which the portfolio items appear on the “Portfolio” page?

    3) Are we using portfolios correctly? Should we be creating galleries instead?

    Thanks in advance!

    @tomdkat: Hello there,
    1. To change that
    Go to => Appearance => Customize => Essential Content Types Plugin Options => Portfolio => Edit Portfolio Archive Title and Portfolio Archive Content and Publish. However, due to a little bug this option doesn’t seem to be working. The issue will be fixed and an update should be released by tomorrow.

    2. To change the order of the posts you will need to change the published date of the post. The latest posts are shown at the top in a descending order.

    3. Well, that depends on how you want to use it. You can display the Portfolio section like a gallery in the homepage and then use the
    www.{mysite}.com/portfolio/ link as a More Post button below in the gallery.

    Let me know if this helps you out!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha
