Using Post Functionality for Portfolio (2 posts)

    I'm looking to use the functionality of a blog to serve as a portfolio. Each post would be a new project, using categories to categorize the services used in that project. Upon posting a project, an article would be created in the 'portfolio' and a link to the project would be created in the relevant service pages.

    I plan on using the following pages

    Portfolio page - Listing all projects.

    Project page - Each project would have an individual page, with links to the services used in that project.

    Services page - Listing all services.

    Service Page - Each Service would have an individual page, with links to the projects which use that service.

    The site will also include a blog which is used for the normal purpose.

    -----------

    If anyone could briefly suggest how they might do this, or provide links to sites which currently use a system like this, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Might consider a category for Projects and other category(s) for other blog posts, and use tags or custom fields for the services

    Portfolio page - List all posts belonging to the Projects category

    Project page - For each project, use single.php to display and present tags/custom fields

    Services page - Present list of tags or list of custom fields.

    Service Page - A 'tag archive' and or 'custom field' archive. If using custom fields, need a plugin such as scribu's Custom Field Taxonomies.
