first of all thank you for this amazing theme.
I have one question is it possible to change the portfolio sorting and displaying to tags instead of categories?
Thank you very much

What would be the benefit of that since categories are the same as tags except that category can have children and parent categories. You can change categories to behave as though they are tags. by taking away the ability to have parents/children.

thank you for answering and sorry that I did not explain the reason for.
The portfolio is for our shoeshop (not for sale only for presentation) and we want to sort women shoes by brands, men shoes by brands, children and accessoires. The first problem by using children and parent categories is that some brands are men, women and accessoires (but that is manageable I think) the second problem is that the portfolio is changing during the season and for one new brands I have to change all other items in the main-category. If the portfolio was a fix presentation I would not think about to change something at the code, but the portfolio have to change twice a year.
If it is possible to change the sorting displaying to tags I have only 4 or 5 categories and each object has the tag of the brand, that would solve all my problems.
In the meantime I can figure out that it has someting to do with the
where the category_nicename have to replaced for post_tag, but my php-knowledge is to bad. I hope it is not too complicated and that someone can help me.
Thank you very much

You wrote: “for one new brands I have to change all other items in the main-category” .. Please explain why. Show me the brands and how you have this arranged because from what you are describing there is no need to change anything in your scenario.
Solution 1: Create categories like this Brand-X (Children) Brand-X (Women) etc.. So this way you can have one page showing men, women, children together if one brand of shoes for men women children.
Solution 2: You can create a meta-field for the portfolio page (an input box) , So that when you add portfolio items you can add a second characteristic in there (the brand).
I think that creating a new taxonomy (tags) for portfolio and then creating a secondary sorting mechanism is a serious and time consuming project which is outside the scope of the support team. You would need to get a freelance developer to help you with this. I would suggest https://codeable.io/
