Select the Post-Based option, if you want to use your posts as the source.

Data Source: the list contains these data source types: Post, Page, Portfolio (or any other post types), Manual Selection, Custom Query, Current Query. You can find more options in the list from other plugins.

Post, Page, Portfolio, etc…

These options allow you to use taxonomies: you can enter needed tags or categories in the Taxonomies list. You can see two options in the Taxonomies relation list: OR and AND.

  • If you want to see all posts from selected taxonomies, select the OR relation (for example, if you want to show all posts from both “2018” and “2019” categories).
  • If you want to see posts that have all selected tags and categories at the same time, select the AND relation (for example, if you want to show all posts with the ”design” tag from the “2018” category).

Excluded posts: you can exclude some items from your portfolio, enter the name of the item you want to hide, or press Space to see the list.
