@Wes, Thanks for your reply.
1. My name field is equal to query_args
2. My value field is equal to cat=1
When those are set the portfolio page with category set to either videos OR recipes & cooking returns ALL the pictures.
When I set the cat=2 or cat=3 or cat=4 I get nothing and at.
3. How does one know what cat number it is?
4. I did have a content picture in there. That returned the weird text “Caption code…” So, I deleted that picture.
So, please help me with the portfolio page and setting the category. I need to use this feature a LOT!
