Portfolios

A Portfolio is a collection of images and text that you can use to showcase some items. Note that there is a difference between a portfolio and a catalog.

A portfolio is static - it will only show what you enter in the editor.

A catalog is dynamic - it will change based on what you enter in the Auctria database.

To learn more about catalogs, see Catalog

Formatting Tip

When formatting text be mindful that people view the website on different sized devices, including phones, and tablets. It is best to avoid using hard-coded font sizes, since what may look big on a high resolution desktop monitor will look enormous on a phone screen. Instead, use the predefined styles which will be scaled automatically based on the screen size to maintain a relative size to each other, but without becoming too large.

HTML Editing

If you are familiar with HTML and web design you can switch the editor into HTML mode by clicking on the </> icon.

This allows you to add HTML (excluding script tags) to the element.
