FAQ

How can I change portfolio number of column?

Go to Grid Portfolio -> Dashboard and look under Plugin Options section for Number of Columns setting. Or you can set number of column per instance via shshortcode by using parameter num_columns. Example: [fgp_portfolio num_columns=2]

Why is my portfolio grid showing different size images?

You should upload images and not use existing ones from the media library for your portfolio in order for the crop to work. Then your images will all be the same size and the grid will be consistent.
