Part One

Upload A New PDF & Main Image

In the left sidebar go to Media > Add New. Upload the new property PDF and the image for the property that you’d like displayed in the Property Portfolio.

The ideal image size is 1920px x 1280px. Smaller images will work, but the quality may be reduced.

When this is done go to Projects > Add New. This will bring up a blank page.
In the top bar, enter the name of the project. Property street address and first part of postcode.
(This is how the page title will be displayed e.g. https://ldpropertydevelopers.co.uk/project/cedars-road-sa3).

Next Step
