5. Assign A Divi Portfolio Module Offset Number
Our Secret Little Trick
We have created a very clever trick to allow you to use the Divi Portfolio module in the Divi Carousel Maker! We injected a feature into the Divi Portfolio module to set the offset number. This feature is already enabled when you activate our plugin, so go ahead and get started!
Portfolio Offset Number Setting
Inside the Portfolio module settings, you will see our new option called “Portfolio Offset Number.” This setting can be confusing, but just follow the instructions, and it will work great. Using the offset feature is required in order to use multiple modules, each showing 1 project.
Each Portfolio module will contain one project. So to make a carousel of multiple projects, you need to first duplicate the Portfolio module as many times as the quantity of projects you want to show. You can use any number you prefer, but it would probably be best to not go too crazy with it, maybe keep it under 10 projects or so.
Configure The Offset Sequence Pattern
The first Portfolio module is fine, you don’t need to add any offset. But each of the other modules needs to have an offset number assigned. Here is the pattern that you need to follow for it all to work correctly:
- Portfolio module 1 = Portfolio Offset Number 0
- Portfolio module 2 = Portfolio Offset Number 1
- Portfolio module 3 = Portfolio Offset Number 2
- Portfolio module 4 = Portfolio Offset Number 3
- Portfolio module 5 = Portfolio Offset Number 4
- Portfolio module 6 = Portfolio Offset Number 5
That same pattern would always continue if more projects are needed. The second module with an offset of 1 will skip the first item, and that’s great because the first module already shows that project. The third module with an offset of 2 will skip the first 2 projects, and that’s great because the first two modules already show those. You get the idea. The offset number is the number of projects that are skipped.
