Portfolio widget - Featuring 3 powerful and responsive widget layouts, usable via WPBakery PB in every page. The 3 different layouts are available in the demo homepages.
Specify Mansory layout image - Since one of the 3 layouts is based on masonry geometry, you are able to specific an extra image for a portfolio post specifically for the masonry view, in order to ensure your content presentation remains powerful and comprehensive. You can also define how each portfolio item will be rendered in a mansory layout, choosing from 3 image proportion modes.
Related Posts - Allowing to display a list of related portfolio posts right under a single portfolio post view.
These and more are available in the portfolio edit mode.

Pricing posts

With Eldas you can make available a list of pricing plans for the site's visitors to opt from for receiving your services.
