I want to create a portfolio page for a selection of my blog posts. I don’t want all my posts to show on the portfolio page. Is there a way to select posts by say tags, instead of categories for the portfolio template?

Yes this can be done with Categories. I mentioned how to do that in one of your previous threads (in case you missed it) – http://appfinite.com/topic/portfolio-page-template/#post-19826
They have Portfolio Tutorials that show you how to display a specific category on your Portfolio page. You can have Multiple portfolio pages that display separate categories individually…..AND you can even exclude the posts that show up on your Portfolio pages from showing up on your regular Blog page if you wanted to as well.
You can find all of these here – http://appfinite.com/tutorials/ and this link can be accessed from the Tuts link in the menu.

Thanks Eric. I did read the tutorial and I understand about using categories to specify what you want to show on the portfolio page.
I’ve got one category (blog) that has posts which I want to show on the portfolio page but I don’t want to exclude those posts from the blog page. I don’t want to create a separate category for the posts that will be going to the portfolio page because they’ll then be excluded from the blog page.
I was wondering if I could use something apart from categories to filter the posts that will go to the portfolio page.November 11, 2016 at 12:59 am #19941EricCustomer
“I’ve got one category (blog) that has posts which I want to show on the portfolio page but I don’t want to exclude those posts from the blog page.”
By default they won’t be excluded from your Main Blog page. The only way they’ll be excluded from your Blog page is if you manually add your Category ID’s under
Exclude Categoriesin the
Blog Page Templatesection from your Genesis Theme Settings page. If you don’t do that then those same posts in your Portfolio will show up on your Blog page since they are all considered Posts.
“I was wondering if I could use something apart from categories to filter the posts that will go to the portfolio page.”
Only Category ID’s will work for this type of Portfolio. WordPress (in addition to Genesis) allows you to show specific Categories only, there’s no code/option to show regular Tags.

Thanks Eric. I was hoping there was a way I could possibly specify which category ids to include on the portfolio page so I don’t repeat everything on the blog on the portfolio page as well.
