A portfolio is an essential section in your website for building your professional brand and getting more business to come in. A good-looking portfolio can open a lot of doors to meeting (and impressing) potential clients. Often, you can make a great first impression with your site visitors after viewing your online portfolio, so creating a powerful portfolio page can be extremely crucial to the future of your business.

A decent portfolio must cover a lot of bases. Apart from actually showcasing your work, the text alongside each piece must give the right level of context. Not only that, but it must also be designed well enough to catch people’s attention without shifting focus away from the work itself.

Making a portfolio attractive, organized, and easy to maintain can be challenging, and Jupiter X does just that. Jupiter X helps you create a unique and beautiful portfolio that looks stunning on all devices and screen sizes, in a matter of minutes.

Jupiter X uses the Raven Posts element for creating and displaying Portfolios with Elementor. The Posts element allows you to display posts from Portfolio post type. It also offers many features such as layout, filter by categories, pagination styles, and more. You can also change the featured image size, set excerpt length and change “Read More” button text and other settings.

When you create and customize your portfolio list with Jupiter X, you can:

  • Show/Hide portfolio meta elements such as Featured Image, Title, Category, Excerpt, etc.
  • Show/Hide Portfolios based on Portfolio Name, Category, or Tags.
  • Define the number of columns and rows of portfolios in the list and the space between rows and columns.
  • Enable/Disable pagination option.
  • Enable/Disable portfolio Sorting.
  • Show Portfolios in two layouts — Grid and Masonry.

In this article, we will guide you step by step through learning how you can customize your portfolio list with Jupiter X by a practical example. But before customizing the Portfolio List page, you must create it.
