That means there is now no need to remember all those shortcodes and their options or to look through documentation every time you need to use one. You won’t even need to switch between the two editors to use them.
Display your work, photographs or products in an easily manageable and attractive way. The theme includes a portfolio custom post type with the ability to create an unlimited number of portfolios, a portfolio grid page template with pagination and jQuery filters, and a portfolio shortcode that allows you to output your work in a one, two or three column layout.
The Profiles custom post type can be used to make a staff page. It can easily be adapted for other uses such as a sports team roster, cast list or faculty alumni to name a few.
Configure your website in minutes with the built in, unbranded, theme and template options.
Includes a full .mo and .po file so you can translate the theme to your language.
