Hi!

I would like my portfolio to use the  "alternating side by side blog" appearance with the image on one side and the title of the project on the other. I could not find a way to do that. 

Can you please help me?

Can you share your URL site so I can take a look?

You're welcome to start with this Custom CSS, it may not work perfectly:

.portfolio-grid-basic {
  grid-template-columns:1fr;
}
.portfolio-grid-basic .grid-item .grid-image {
  width:50%;
}
.tweak-portfolio-grid-basic-image-aspect-ratio-11-square .portfolio-grid-basic .grid-image {
  padding-bottom: 50%;
}
.portfolio-grid-basic .grid-item:nth-child(odd) {
  flex-direction: row;
  align-items:center;
  justify-content: space-between;
}
.portfolio-grid-basic .grid-item:nth-child(even) {
  flex-direction: row-reverse;
  align-items:center;
  justify-content: space-between;
}

Let me know when you've added it, and how it looks, and we can try and adjust it.

It doesn't look like you have thumbnail images for these, I see the code there correctly, but it contains no thumbnail image.

You are totally right somehow they were taken off when I inserted the code. Now you can see the images. I modified the proportions and now somehow it is not aligned anymore. I was wondering if you could help me make it more similar to the blog on the text side (aligned to the left and with the learn more button). I attach two screenshot

Not yet there, now the title is too near to the picture and it is too small, I also changed something in you code to adjust spacing. Let me know if it is correct!

 

.portfolio-grid-basic {
  grid-template-columns: 1fr;
}
.portfolio-grid-basic .grid-item .grid-image {
  width: 60%;
  margin-bottom:10vw;
}
.tweak-portfolio-grid-basic-image-aspect-ratio-11-square .portfolio-grid-basic .grid-image {
  padding-bottom: 50%;
}
.portfolio-grid-basic .grid-item:nth-child(odd) {
  flex-direction: row;
  align-items: center;
  margin-right: 6vw;
}
.portfolio-grid-basic .grid-item:nth-child(even) {
  flex-direction: row-reverse;
  align-items: center;
  margin-left: 6vw;
}

To change the position of the text next to the image, change the margin-right: 6vw; and margin-left: 6vw; to higher VW values, maybe start at 10vw and increase or decrease to suit your design.

@Ziggy, can you help me also, please! I tried to apply your code to my case, but failed. 

I want to display my blog posts pulled in the summary block with 'alternating side by side' design. 
Here, on the Home page, is my summary block, under 'Legutóbbi projektjeink': https://broccoli-kumquat-bs8a.squarespace.com/ (pass: atnif)

And I want to give it the same look as the blog page here: https://broccoli-kumquat-bs8a.squarespace.com/hu/projektek

Can you help me, please?

Thanks in advance

@antasz The code I provided was for a portfolio page not a summary block. It's probably possible to re-use the code for .sqs-block-summary-v2 .summary-item.
