The widget will be available in Elementor items. Just drag it to your website and select the customization options 🙂

You can also use dthe shortcode to display the portfolio grid on a page/post, or using Gutenberg and other page builders:


You can customize it using these options:

  • postsperpage: Set a number of posts to show (eg: postsperpage=”12″).
  • showfilter: Show the category filter on the top of the grid. Options: yes/no. (eg: showfilter=”yes”).
  • style: Set the grid style of the portfolio. Options: masonry/box. (eg: style=”box”).
  • linkto: Set the link type of the portfolio item. If is set to image, it will open the Featured Image on a lightbox. Options: image/project. (eg: linkto=”image”).
  • columns: Set the columns per row of the portfolio grid. Options: 2/3/4. (eg: columns=”4″).
  • margin: Choose if you want a margin between the items or no. Options: yes/no. (eg: margin=”no”).

Example of a complete shortcode:

[powerfolio postsperpage=”12″ type=”no” showfilter=”yes” style=”masonry” linkto=”image” columns=”4″ margin=”no”]

Example of a complete shortcode without the set properties:
[powerfolio postsperpage=”” showfilter=”” style=”” linkto=”” columns=”” margin=””]

I arrived at this plugin because of a tutorial from Ferdy Korpershoek on how to make Portfolios for FREE in Elementor. It worked perfectly based on his tutorial. At first, I was nervous using this plugin because its last update was 3 years ago. But thankfully, it was updated recently. Keep up the good work and hoping for its continued development.
