Hi, My boss wants this:  http://146.66.113.175/~techgard/products/  A few rows of logos, filterable by category, with a details button that leads to another page.

The problem is, all the plugins I find that do the filterable option don't allow a link to a separate page. So instead of going to:  http://146.66.113.175/~techgard/portfolio/ix-systems/ on the IX logo, she wants to go to a page of her own making: http://146.66.113.175/~techgard/ix-storage/

Maybe I'm not looking for the right kind of plugin, so I thought I'd ask the experts. Thanks,

Hi Melody,
Is this the nucleo-outline theme built using Elementor?
Thanks,

No sorry, the theme is called gridlabs.

I thought this was the one, but I can't add a portfolio with it:  https://wordpress.org/plugins/responsive-filterable-portfolio/

The GeneratePress theme coupled with a https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/show+posts/ type plugin might provide a starting point.

This approach ensures the theme has zero effect on complex post arrangement.

The Show Posts plugin you choose will arrange posts.

Some of these plugins can do crazy complex post arrangement + post to post traversal + bread crumb tracking.

My guess is one of then will work for your use case.

Likely best to try a few of these plugins + play with their features.

Note: Many of these plugins have pro versions which add many more features, so likely good for you to peruse the premium versions too.

Thanks, David -  I'm afraid I'm stuck with the theme they chose, so really I just need a plugin. The one I linked to above would have been perfect, but it is missing the "add a portfolio" button on my version of wordpress.

Any show posts plugin will likely work with a well designed theme.

The problem with must premium/paid themes is the reason they're aren't in the WordPress repository is they're written so poorly they can't pass the WordPress test suite.

Just install any plugin you like + test with your theme.

What I'm trying to solve is this... plugins like the one I have installed have a hard-coded link to a page we don't want to use. I want a plugin that will be: A. Filterable B. Allow a customized link.

EG: This portfolio plugin here is fine, but I want to customize the link on the detail button. Either that or get another plugin that allows that. http://146.66.113.175/~techgard/products/

So another option would be to show me how to change the link on the details button. For instance, on the IX details button, instead of going to http://146.66.113.175/~techgard/portfolio/ix-systems/, I would like it to go to http://146.66.113.175/~techgard/ix-storage  Thanks!

https://www.contentviewspro.com will likely accomplish this.

You'll have to dig through their docs + possibly contact their support to verify what you're asking works with their plugin.

Note: Likely the filtering facility will be done via plugins hooks, so will require some minor coding.

These guys are very good about adding features upon request also, so if you have any other features required, be sure to fill out an enhancement request with their dev folks.
