I have played with ideas for a web ‘portfolio’ on this site, but have not been able to configure it to look quite as I wanted, so I ended up choosing another slider option. I have created a draft site for a client which included client testimonies. The layout of these is similar to what I was looking for for my portfolio.
These testimonies were in the form of posts displayed using the CHPC slider. I figured this would be a better way to display my web portfolio so I have finally got around to getting rid of my old portfolio and installing this new one. The plug-in was easy to configure, I (once again) have used the free option which I think may only give me one slider. I only need a single portfolio, so it’s perfect for my needs. Configuration was simple enough to get up and running with only a few tweaks. I have 6 sites in the portfolio at the time of writing, so I wrote a post for each and chose dimensions such that a single post appears on the page at a time. The featured image appears in the portfolio along with excerpt text (configurable) – clicking takes you to the full post.
All in all, this may not be EXACTLY my perfect portfolio, but certainly is an improvement on previous attempts…
