Portfolial is packed with tools to take your portfolio to the next level. Explore this list of every feature Portfolial offers.
Custom Domain Name
Get a free yourname.portfolial.com domain on registration or upgrade to Pro to get a custom domain name. Own a domain name already? No problem, you can point it at our servers or transfer it to us.
A custom domain helps to build 'brand you', is better for ranking in search engines and just looks a lot more professional!
Customisation is at the core of Portfolial. You can choose from 6 very distinct themes to choose a layout and design that suits your work.
Pages in Portfolial are made up of 'Blocks' which you can add, delete and re-order. Each block displays differently on your page, for example you can have a block to show a featured article, an 'about me' block or a contact form.
Grab Articles by URL
Adding an article by URL is as simple as entering the URL and clicking add, we'll take care of grabbing the title, publication, date, content and an image.
PDF and Image Upload
If your portfolio items are in an offline format such as print you can easily upload a PDF or image instead of adding an article from a URL.
You can easily create multiple pages for your writing portfolio. These could be for a Contact or About page or as a way to group portfolio items, perhaps by publication or type.
More pages and more content helps you to rank better in search engines, helps to give visitors more to read and makes your site a lot more interesting!
Not only can you add links to articles published elsewhere but you can also directly write and publish articles on your Portfolial.
Making use of 'Publish Directly' feature and a new page allows you to create a blog where you can publish content that doesn't make it on to other websites or into print.
Allow visitors to your portfolio to subscribe to receive an email of your newly added articles, at most once a week.
The Portfolial dashboard allows you to quickly see how many visitors your site has had, how long they spent on the site and where they came from.
Automatic Article Import
Add an RSS feed or profile page URL in the "Article Feeds" and Portfolial will check the page for new articles once a day and import them into your portfolio. You can set the block(s) to control where they will display.
By using Portfolial you can rest assured your portfolio will look great on any device and in every browser, as well as loading fast and using the latest best practices.
Having a mobile-ready or 'responsive' website it vital for ranking well in search engines and giving everyone who views your portfolio a good experience.
A contact form can be easily added to any page allowing potential clients, employers and others to easily contact you.
A contact form is much more effective than simply displaying an email address at getting people to contact you. This is normally a good thing if they're looking to work with you!
Google Analytics Integration
For more detailed analytics Portfolial supports integrating with your private Google Analytics account so you can access all the raw data that provides.
HTTPS as standard
We take security very seriously and all our portfolios, including those using custom domains are equipped with a secure HTTPS certificate.
Portfolial provides a range of privacy options, from fully public to secure-link based, password-protected and a 'Surpressed search presence' option."
Automatically Assign Items
If you have a large number of portfolio items it can become hard work to manage them. With Portfolial you can easily create simple rules to assign articles to the pages you want them to be displayed on.
You can automatically backup your URL-based articles to protect them from being lost if the publishing website shuts down or removes content. Backups are generated in PDF and image format so you never lose the text or what that article looked like.
Small-Medium sized publishers often lose content when they update their website or if they remove old content, and they're more likely to shut down. Backing up your articles keeps their original formatting so you can still share it in the future.
Social Media Links
Easily add links to all or any of your social media profiles to be displayed on your portfolio.
As well as offering themes, each theme in Portfolial can be customised by changing background images, colours and fonts so you can create a site perfect for your needs.
Upload a CV or Résumé to display on your portfolio, perfect for showcasing yourself to potential employers or clients.
Portfolial is highly optimised to help your portfolio rank well in search engines which is important for getting found online. Optional advanced setting let you customise exactly how this works.
Allow readers to comment on your articles to get feedback and open discussions. You can moderate comments and spam prevention features are built in.
Export your entire portfolio in a PDF Résumé format for quickly sharing or printing your portfolio offline.
