    Hi Bill,

    I withdrew a duplicate post in some other WordPress forum which I was unconcentrated enough to post there. As my question really belongs to this forum I will post it again. I appologize for my mistake.

    I am using X The Theme which comes with their own post_type="x-portfolio". Your nice plugin shows the posts alright!

    The portfolio-items are categorized in porfolio-categories. Whenever I state something like category="book" I get no result at all.

    The portfolio-items are tagged in porfolio-categories. Whenever I state something like tag="book" I get no result at all.

    Is there any way to filter these kind of posts? To display simply any recent post just isn’t good enough.

    WordPress comes with two taxonomies built-in: category and post_tag. These are applied to the “post” post type.

    While your theme could add those taxonomies to your portfolio post type, more likely they created their own taxonomies like portfolio_category and portfolio_tag.

    In the backend go to where you manage those taxonomies (like Portfolio > Categories). Look in the URL, you should see something like: edit-tags.php?taxonomy=portfolio-tag . That is the name of your taxonomy.

    Then, use a shortcode like this: [display_posts taxonomy=”portfolio-tag” tax_term=”book”]

    Hi Bill,

    thanks very much for your help. Great!

    Also: After pointing to this problem they came up with this solution (they recommended the use of your plugin in the first place):

    [display-posts posts_per_page="5" post_type="x-portfolio" portfolio-category="ratgaber" portfolio-tag="produkt" include_excerpt="true" image_size="thumbnail" wrapper="div"]

    Thanks again.

    Have a great day,
