Understanding the project’s infobox

Understanding the project's infobox

The infobox contains a project’s basic information, such as the featured images, categories, key data and project status. Completing the infobox thoroughly is key to building a great portfolio since it will bring some coherence across projects and allow other users to browse them more easily.

1. The first section of the infobox is the “featured image”. The featured image will be your projects cover and will show up in any list were your project is listed, including your public profile. If you need help uploading your featured images this other tutorial will walk you through the process.

2. Choosing what categories to include your project in is important since it will allow other users to find your projects more easily when they are looking for them. You may add your project to as many categories as you want, but we recommend you keep it between 3 to 5.

3. Architecture projects share some common denominators that many other professional fields don’t. This pieces of data help people viewing your project to quickly contextualize it and understand what they are looking at.

Date: This is the date when the project was finished (ex: October 2005) or an interval if you want to indicate both the date the works started as well as the date when they ended (ex: June 2005 – October 2005)

4. You may change your project publication status from “published” to “draft” or vice versa at any time. All published projects will be public and will show up in your public profile as well as any other lists where they belong. All draft projects will only show up in your admin panel under the “Projects” tab.

5. At the very end of the infobox you’ll find the PUBLISH or UPDATE button, depending if you are creating a new project or updating an already existing one. Click the PUBLISH/UPDATE button to save any changes you’ve made.
