Show single selected portfolio item in block

Hi I am trying to show selected portfolio items dynamically if possible (3 in total) one each in individual blocks x_block_grid_item on the homepage which link to the portfolio post detail page.

Is there a shortcode or combination of shortcodes which I can use?

Thanks in hope.


Hi Jimmy,

Thanks for reaching out.

You can utilize the combination of global block, dynamic content feature, and block grid.

First, please check this about the global block and dynamic content feature ( Dynamic Content ).

Simply create your post item in global block at a time and apply the dynamic content like title, content, and so on coming from portfolio post type.

The 92 is the post ID of the portfolio page. Please check this for getting the post ID, but this time, check from portfolio section. These screenshots are also taken from text element, other elements like buttons and should work the same.

Then simply copy the shortcode of that global block within your block grid item content.


Hi this appears to be a Pro feature which requires a free licence upgrade for this site. If I upgrade is there an annual subscription involved after the initial free period?
If I move to Pro will my theme options styles stack change?


Hello @JimmyG,

You do not need to upgrade to Pro. Dynamic Contents is available in Cornerstone as well. Please go to X > Settings > Permissions > User Preferences > Dynamic Content and set it to “Always On”. You should be able to use the dynamic contents in Cornerstone once enabled.

Hope this helps. Kindly let us know.

Thanks RueNel I see X > Settings > Permissions > User Preferences > but Dynamic Content is not there.


Ok, I applied an update and the option is there now.


Great News.
