Managing Projects

If you need to show­case anoth­er kind of works that needs some text to go along with your images and videos, projects may be the per­fect choice for you. In this arti­cle, we will explain the main work­flow of adding and cus­tomiz­ing a project. You can add new projects from Projects →  Add New page.

Adding images

All you have to do in order to enrich your project with images is to click on Add Image and a modal win­dow will show up (the Media Uploader). Here you can Drag & Drop images from your com­put­er or add already uploaded images to the project

*Note: In the same modal win­dow, after adding images you can drag & drop them to change their order.

Projects Specific Options

When creating/editing a project, under the edi­tor pan­el and the Project Details you have a series of set­tings that allow you to con­trol the slideshow (each project dis­plays it’s gallery in the form of a slid­er) and some infor­ma­tion like client name or client link.

  • Client Name — Allows you to enter the client name which will be dis­played in the Fron­tEnd;
  • Client Link — Allows you to enter the client link which will be dis­played as a hyper­link over the Client Name;
  • Tem­plate Style — Allows you to choose between Full Width Slid­erSide­bar Right and Clas­sic;
  • Image Scal­ing — Allows you to con­trol how we will lay­out the images in the giv­en screen space of the slid­er. The Fill set­ting scales image to com­plete­ly fill slid­er con­tain­er (rec­om­mend­ed for land­scape images). The Fit option scales image to fit the con­tain­er (rec­om­mend­ed for por­trait images). The Fit if Small­er set­ting scales image to fit only if size of slid­er con­tain­er is less than size of image and the Auto Height scales the con­tain­er to fit the full-size image;
  • Show Near­by Images — If enabled, you’ll avoid hav­ing emp­ty space on the sides of the image when using most­ly por­trait images;
  • Slid­er Auto­play — Allows you to set the slid­er to auto­mat­i­cal­ly start when load­ing the page. Once acti­vat­ed you have the option of set­ting the Auto­play Delay Between Slides (in mil­lisec­onds);
  • Exclude From Archives.

Adding Videos to a Project

Every image from the project slid­er can behave as a hold­er of a YouTube or Vimeo video.

From the edit gallery modal win­dow, when select­ing an image, an option­al Video URL input field will appear in the right side­bar. There you can paste a YouTube/Vimeo link along with choos­ing if you want to Enable Video Auto­play option.

This is all about cre­at­ing projects. We hope you enjoy the tools we have devised to help you beau­ti­ful­ly show­case your awe­some cre­ations.
