The “tax” parameter is intended to filter taxonomies, not terms (what is a category name).
I can study the possibility to add term support, or, you can also contribute. This is open sourced here: https://github.com/JuanJavier1979/Wanna-Isotope
BTW, you can use the Support system to get help first, thanks.
in your example you gave this
Show a filter based on taxonomy parameter.
So I assume if I put any category name there form my categories, it should filter out other categories and only show the intended category.
For example If I put tax=”charity” it should only show post from that category right? But it didn’t work that way..
Sorry if it’s not clear enough for you, but it’s working perfectly.
In the tax parameter you have to tell what taxonomy do you want to filter by.
A category name (what you want to use) is a “term” not a “taxonomy”.
The plugin does what it says it does, and does it good.
But giving a bad review only for assuming how it works before even make any support request it’s not fair.
Or are you just giving a bad review because the plugin is not doing what you expected?
oh so you mean, it can sort by taxonomies like
either a category or a tag maybe etc?
but not individual categories by name?
Yes, that’s the purpose of the plugin. That’s why I wrote before:

You can now use a single category (term), using the “term” parameter. Keep in mind to use the term slug. And is mandatory to use to “tax” parameter.
[isotope items=”15″ tax=”category” term=”category-1″ order_by=”title” order=”ASC”]
At the example above I’m showing as a masonry grid only the posts under category (tax) “Category 1” (A term of category post) with slug “category-1”.
If the category “Category 1” has sub-categories those are used as the filters.
Thanks for your review. If you have questions please use the support forum instead: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wanna-isotope
