The single Portfolio page shows one of your projects or works individually. You need to add some single portfolios before creating your Portfolio page following this tutorials. You can also check video tutorial directly.
To create a new single portfolio(project), go to Portfolio > Add New from the admin panel, then you will enter the single portfolio editing interface.
You can use WordPress default block editor to edit some basic text layout, to create the complicate layouts, please use BM Content Builder that we recommend.
Tips: You can also create a single portfolio by duplicating an existing portfolio, please must use the Yoast Duplicate plugin. Other page duplicating plugins mostly do not work well with BM content builder.
Give the single portfolio a name by entering it in the Title field. It is the default title of portfolio. It is displayed on the top of page by default. If you want to hide the default title(you can create a new title in BM content builder), please locate the Layout Options panel, disable Show Title.
Each single portfolio must be set one category at least. The Category is for organizing the Portfolios.
There would not be categories if you start from a new website. Please create the category firstly. Navigate to “Portfolio > Categories” to create categories, all portfolios would be set within one category like “Works”. If you have several sub-categories, please set “Works” as parent category of these categories.
Please go back the single Portfolio editing page, select category(ies):
You will use the category when you create the portfolio list page. You need to select the “Works” category for the portfolio list page(the portfolio list page is created by the “Grid” or “Masonry Grid” module normally). The sub-categories are for the filter (sorta) of the portfolio list page.
You could set “Featured Image” for a single portfolio, the featured image could be shown in portfolio list(“Grid” or “Masonry Grid” module):
Second Featured Image
The “Second Featured Image” is for showing-2nd-image-mouseover effect of the portfolio list(“Grid” or “Masonry Grid” module).
There are 3 options in Layout Template selector

Define the Logo & menu color, global Lightbox, Background color, thumbnail types in the General settings panel.
Logo and Menu Color
set the logo and menu color. If the default logo/menu color is dark, you could set the light(alternative) color with a dark color background. You should set the default and alternative color scheme(uploaded logo file or color value) in the Theme Option.

The option is disabled by default. Normally, if you enable Lightbox in a module of the BM Content builder, the images can only be navigated(Next/Previous) in the same module. The images in the different modules(Single Image, Grid, Masonry Modules) would be navigated in the same Lightbox if enable this option.
Set a background color for this portfolio itself, you could set the font color also, all text content on the page will be forced to show as the color.
