    Hi there,

    I’m setting up my home page to display my portfolio and categories just like the Mellow theme example. I followed all of the instructions to set up the Portfolio on the main page, but my videos are not appearing. The categories do appear at the top so I know that it is linking to my Portfolio, but the videos themselves do not appear in the grid.

    Can you please help?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is natgeosciex.media.

    Hi,

    Have you uploaded a featured image for your projects?

    That works now, thank you! Also — how do I re-size the dimensions of the portfolio items? I want them to appear in 16:9 proportions (the same as the video thumbnails) as opposed to the existing squares.

    You’re welcome. Which video thumbnails are you referring to?

    Also, could you grant me access to view your site?

    Thanks! I just granted access. The thumbnails are in the portfolio grid on my home page.

    Thanks for sharing.

    If you want the project thumbnails to have a 16:9 aspect ration, you will need to crop them to that size before uploading them.

    Thanks — the thumbnails are already cropped to that 16:9 aspect ratio and uploaded to my Media Library. But when they appear in the portfolio grid, they are more square and cut off the left and right edges of the original thumbnails.

    After you crop and size them 16:9 ratio, resize them so they are 480px wide. Then upload them.
