    Hi Paul

    I am a photographer who recently bought and installed your beautiful STILLS theme for wordpress. I am still on the process of personalizing my site, and just saw someone’s comment asking you if there would be possibilities of having multiple portfolio pages since I’d like a way to display my personal work on one page and commissioned work on another.

    From your answer to that comment, I understand that there are 2 possibilities:
    1 the galleries approach
    2.by coding a second custom post type, a second custom taxonomy, and respective templates.

    For the option #1, could you please tell me how this gallery approach works?
    And for the option #2, you said you could do that directly in an specific site, however that would be a customization and thus is not included into the support according to ThemeForest rules and that you could provide an estimate on that. Could you please tell me how much that could cost?

    Thanks in advance and kind regards

    Hi Michael,

    Without-custom-coding approach could be smth like this:

    You could leave two portfolio categories (and kill all the rest): Commissioned and Personal. Then you could hide the portfolio categories menu (the little grey capitals). And you would put two links on the main menu: Commissioned and Personal. They would lead to yoursite.com/comissioned and yoursite.com/personal (without the ‘/proj-cat’ in the middle). In essence they would be filters for the main page. The ‘Sincere..’ words would be the same on both pages. And ‘Other projects’ at the end of single project pages would have projects from both categories.

    Having a custom post type with its own taxonomies sounds like a better solution.

    I’m not exactly sure what you mean by ‘respective templates’. I would say that they would look the same as the existing ones, but you would be able to, say, use ‘Airy’ grid for Commissioned and ‘Masonry’ for Personal, and have different ‘Sincere..’ texts for commissioned and personal. I’ve emailed you an estimate on that to the address with which you are registered on this forum.

    Kind regards,
    Paul
