    You would need to alter the template used to display a portfolio item. When you alter templates, it’s best to create a child theme to contain altered or custom templates. In the template code, you get the categories with wp_get_post_categories(). If the taxonomy is not the actual “category” taxonomy, specify the correct one as part of $args. If all you need is the actual term names, you can limit what data is returned with the “fields” argument, also part of $args.

    The function returns an array of category or term items. If all you got were names, you can implode() the array elements into a string ready for output. Otherwise loop through the array and extract the data you want for output.

    If you want a custom permalink structure to be recognized, use add_rewrite_rule() to cause WP to recognize it and properly rewrite it internally into a form WP can understand as an URL query string..

    Is there a plugin I can just download? I am having trouble finding the right code to use, also having issues trying to find out the names of everything. I dont know what I’m doing TBH

    I’m not aware of one. It doesn’t mean one does not exist. You might try asking in your theme’s dedicated support forum. Maybe someone there has a suggestion.
