Multiple Themes

Customisation is at the core of Journo Portfolio. You can choose from 6 very distinct themes to choose a layout and design that suits your work.

Block Editor

Pages in Journo Portfolio 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 portfolio item, an 'about me' block or a contact form.

Import by URL

Adding a portfolio item 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.

Multiple Pages

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.

Pro Tip

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 blog posts on your Journo Portfolio.

Pro Tip

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.

Subscribe Button

Allow visitors to your portfolio to subscribe to receive an email of your newly added portfolio items, at most once a week.

Built-in Analytics

The Journo Portfolio 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.

Contact Form

A contact form can be easily added to any page allowing potential clients, employers and others to easily contact you.

Tips for the Pros

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!

HTTPS as standard

We take security very seriously and all our portfolios, including those using custom domains are equipped with a secure HTTPS certificate.

Privacy Options

Journo Portfolio 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 Journo Portfolio you can easily create simple rules to assign portfolio items to the pages you want them to be displayed on.

Article Backups

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.

Tips for the Pros

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.

Easily add links to all or any of your social media profiles to be displayed on your portfolio.

Theme Customisation

As well as offering themes, each theme in Journo Portfolio can be customised by changing background images, colours and fonts so you can create a site perfect for your needs.

I host my digital portfolio on @journoportfolio because they automatically create a back-up pdf of my work. Super important because stuff in the online world does just disappear sometimes.
