Post Types

Beside standard posts and pages, AWSM theme provides two additional post types: Career and Portfolio.

Career setup

Career post is made so you can easily present your career highlights. To create a new career item, click on the Career -> Add New admin page.

career

Career items are not supposed to have single templates but there are two places where you may want to show the timeline list of your career items: Career page template (timeline look) and Career Widget. Career item provides several post fields (metaboxes):

  • Title

  • Subtitle Here you can point out some important note.

  • Content Here you can put all description about the item (as for standard WordPress post).

  • External URL This is a place for adding a link to the company you have worked for, or a project website, or any other URL.

  • Icon You can add timeline icon which fits in your specific career story.

  • Featured Image If you want to show the image for your career story, this is a place.

  • Video Here’s the option to add featured video to your career item. It can be YouTube or Vimeo.

  • Featured Media Options This is where you can choose what to show on career page as the featured media for this item.

  • Published Date This will affect display order of your career items on the timeline.

Portfolio setup

Portfolio posts are made so you can easily present your work and projects. To create a new portfolio item, click on the Portfolio -> Add New admin page. This theme provides main portfolio page which we will describe later in the Page Templates section of this documentation.
