- switch to the previously selected format tab to define the format-specific settings. Let’s say, we’re creating an Image format project, in this case, the Image Format tab is the one to navigate to.

- Click the Publish button when you’re ready with the edits and feel free to check your project on the website frontend.
Displaying the projects on a page
You can easily showcase your website projects on the site pages with the help of the Projects module, available under the list of the Power Builder modules. Let’s learn how to use it.
- Open the Pages > All Pages and select your Portfolio page. Alternatively, you can create a new page under the Pages > Add New.
- Press the Use Power builder button at the top in case you’re working with the newly created page. Then insert a section and a row like you usually do.
- Then click on the +Insert modules button and choose the Projects module from a grid of the available ones.
- The module is added, you can save it and update the page if you’re fine with its default configuration. The general settings are defined at the Projects > Settings menu at your Dashboard.
- On the other hand, you may configure the module up to your needs. Feel free to choose which project categories would you like to include, what filters to show, what projects
formats to display, etc.
- There is also a Single term slug field available for you to limit the module display with a single category if needed. Simply enter a slug of the desired category here to showcase only the projects, assigned to that specific category. Not sure where to find that slug? Check the Projects > Categories menu, it’s in the Slug column on right.
- Finally, press the Save & Exit button to save your module and update the page to see the changes. You’ve just become an owner of the personal Portfolio page,
