    Hi, I am tagging all of my portfolios with the hope that I can then use the tags somehow to access the portfolios of a particular type.
    I like the tag cloud widget but it only works for Posts in this ART theme.
    Is there a way to access tags and categories for portfolios – either with widgets or shortcodes?
    I can’t find anywhere to set this up in the dashboard.
    Also, the portfolio page isn’t showing the themes and categories that I’m setting – which I would like to do.
    None of the support forums or WordPress support has an answer for this based on my searches thus far – but it says that I should be able to access portfolio or “project” tags via a url like this :

    Category – Project Type Archive – http://yourgroovysite.wordpress.com/project-type/project-type-slug/
    Tag – Project Tag Archive – http://yourgroovysite.wordpress.com/project-tag/project-tag-slug/

    It doesn’t work for my site which is installed on my own domain using the latest version of WordPress and your latest ART theme.
    Please advise how I can use this as it is a really useful way to access portfolios when you have a lot of them – which I will eventually.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    There is Footer widget for portfolios. You could select the widget in the Footer Elements(Theme Options>Footer)

    I don’t understand the 2nd question. What’s the “themes and categories” you mentioned?

    The 2 URLs

    Category – Project Type Archive – http://yourgroovysite.wordpress.com/project-type/project-type-slug/
    Tag – Project Tag Archive – http://yourgroovysite.wordpress.com/project-tag/project-tag-slug/

    are redirected to
    https://wordpress.com/support/domains/register-domain/project-type/project-type-slug/
    https://wordpress.com/support/domains/register-domain/project-tag/project-tag-slug/

    Is the 2 URLs?

    Regards!

    Thanks for your reply but you did not answer my question at all.
    I have used the footer widget area for the portfolio pages already for search box and audio widget, but the tag cloud widget only links to POSTS. I want the Portfolio tags to link to PORTFOLIOS in a widget so I can allow users to easily access portfolio items by selecting a tag or category.
    When I create a Portfolio, I can add tags and categories for that Portfolio item.
    But, when I use the tag cloud widget, it only links to Posts and not Portfolios.
    This is a big problem – there is the functionality for tags and categories for Portfolios and Posts, but no widgets for showing Portfolio tags and categories.
    If I create a tag cloud widget in the Footer area, when I click on a tag, it only looks for Posts, and doesn’t show the Portfolios that have that tag.
    This is basic database structure of WordPress. So how do I get your ART Theme to show Portfolio tags and categories in a widget?
    Please explain why I can’t do this in your theme.
    It seems like a major flaw.

    Hi,

    I tested on my local, the tags of portfolio can be shown.
    Please send your question(this topic URL) and wp-admin(URL / username/password) to uiueux@gmail.com, I’ll log in to check it.

    Best
