What is the difference between a ‘Gallery’ and a ‘Portfolio’?
A Gallery is a post type that is meant to replace the standard Wordpress gallery function. It allows you to create galleries that can be used more than once in different posts, pages and portfolios. It can contain images, Youtube and Vimeo videos with captions and descriptions.
A Portfolio is a post type that allows you to showcase your work by adding content about the work as well as attaching a gallery created in the ‘Gallery’ tab to present images and/or video about the work. To display the list of portfolios as a slideshow, simply add a page with the ‘Portfolio’ template to include all the portfolios you have created. You can also add portfolios to the main menu or sub menu by going into ‘Appearance / Menu’ and selecting the relevant portfolios. In a coming update, you will be able to filter the portfolios based on the category.
