    I’d like to set up a few pages that only pull videos from certain portfolio categories. The only way I know to do this is by using the Template Builder to create a Template for one portfolio page and set it to only pull one category.

    Is there another way to do this? Can I use Custom Fields? Is there a plug-in or something that you guys know about?

    Ideal Situation: We set up ONE template from the Choices Template Builder which controls the formatting, etc. for any portfolio page. Then I can use a plug-in or custom fields for these pages using that template and only pull certain categories. Here’s why: I don’t want to create too many Templates because if/when we switch themes, we’ll lose all of the work. I’d like to keep the Templates to formatting/look/feel while determining which categories I pull from a more permanent method.

    Thanks in advance for your help. I hope I described this thoroughly, I’m sure it’s a unique request.

    Hi FWCMedia,

    Unfortunately by the nature of the posts (being a custom post type) you’ll lose all those posts if/when you change themes. As for the main question, you can create and assign portfolio pages through the theme options> Portfolio as well. Its the same setup as creating a template except you don’t need to go to that page to assign the template to it. You just create the page to hold the portfolio then choose its options in the Portfolio’s section and designate that page to hold it and the categories.

    Hi Devin,

    You write: ” you can create and assign portfolio pages through the theme options> Portfolio as well.

    However, when I select a second categorie in the Portfolio option panel, and assign it to a second page (so a different categorie on a different page than the Portfolio page I already created)….. the first portfolio page becomes blank !

    How come?

    Regards,
