NOTES: All original uploaded files, can be downloaded even if converted for Project View. For PDFs, some media embeds work only if they have URL link alternative. Projects with many different file types or links may take longer to load as the Project Viewer will load all supporting files and play-back scripts needed at the same time.

Embed Media: Videos, Prezi, Soundcloud, SlideShare, etc.

Project Description

Portfolium uses a customized version of Markdown for formatting.  (https://daringfireball.net/)
https://help.portfolium.com/portfolium/projects/add-a-link

This is limited to URL link embedding only. No other Markdown is supported.

 


Profile Settings:

The best way to link too many social profiles is directly in your profile found under Me > Settings

 

Profile > Username:

Update username to create a custom URL: 
https:// portfolium. com/ BlinkyBill

 

Profile > Birthday

Changes to Profile will require updating your Birthday with something.
(We recommended not to use your real birthday.)

 

Profile > Social URLs Supported:

Facebook URL
Instagram URL
LinkedIn URL
GitHub URL
Personal URL (Your own web site.)

 

Email:

Use the [ADD NEW EMAIL] option to add an email address.

 

Connected Apps:

Allows you to share project with other services: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter.

Allows you to import content from other services: Badgr, Credly, Google.

 

 

 

Additional Profile Elements.

 

When adding Accomplishments, Certifications or Athletics; use relative images or icons to make your profile more exciting. Adding these items without images can look strange as Portfolium will often show a placeholder image instead. (Resumes do not have an image option.)
