Once you have installed the extension, a new backend module Portfolio will appear in the Content section. This is the place where you manage all portfolios, their items, and categories.

The initial view is the portfolio list. Each portfolio can contain multiple portfolio items. This is a similar relation as the news archives and news.

Upon creating a new portfolio, you will be asked to enter its name and the portfolio reader page. That page should contain the portfolio reader module and be hidden from public navigation (just like the page of the newsreader).

Frontend modules

Four new frontend modules come with the extension:

  1. portfolio filter;
  2. portfolio list;
  3. portfolio reader;
  4. portfolio related list.

The portfolio list should be placed on the page where you want to list the albums of single or multiple categories. However, the portfolio reader should be placed on the page hidden in navigation. Also, the category settings should point to that page.

See the next section of the documentation for the detailed options of each module.
