Hi,

I’m new in wordpress theme Development and I need some advices (from wordpress authors) to correctly start my theme. I’ve got an HTLM template and I’m currently trying to convert it into a wordpress theme.

My template have an isotope grid which displays blog post, portfolio item and any kinds of entries.

I want to have the same thing in my wordpress theme.

However I read a lot about portfolio in wordpress.

What is the best method and the most commonly used to manage portfolio entry?

- with Custom Post Types?

- with normal post section and manage with category?

- with a plugin?

- maybe an other method?

I want something that is easy to manage for users and also that is the most compatible between theme.

I hope that someone can give me the best solution to do it!

Sorry for my English, I’m French.

thank you for your answer. You include this plugin inside your theme? Can you auto install it when you install your theme in wordpress?

Sorry for this kind of questions but I’m still learning on wordpress…

You can bundle it with theme package and “auto” install it with http://tgmpluginactivation.com/
