Filter or Index By Multiple Categories on Gallery/Portfolio

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://jordanforge.art/

Hello! I am converting my old site above to a 7.1 version and am hoping to add a multi-field filter to my overall library of paintings.  I understand the Categories and Tags features built into Blogs, Shops, and Events, and how those are not applicable to Portfolio type pages. These seem like clunky workarounds to what I'm after, which should be a slightly more advanced version of the Archive page feature combined your run-of-the-mill gallery page.

I am hoping to simply have a page of all my paintings where I can assign a few metadata fields to each, then a ribbon at the top of the page allowing viewers to drill down by fields such as size, year complete, subject matter, and color. Heather Day has achieved something like this on her page, screenshotted below. I am reluctant to pay $70 for Universal Filter without knowing if it can achieve what I'm after; but if that is the only solution, short of SquareSpace improving their functionality, then so be it.

Extra points if it's possible to link directly to a pre-filtered directory!

Hello Tuan, I certainly do! I saw another one of your posts on a similar thread recommending Universal Filter, but I wanted to see if there was an easy (or even CSS) workaround for a simple ribbon like the screenshot above.

With your screenshot

Simple idea is create pages: Painting, Murals, Paintings 2021, Paintings 2020, Paintings 2019,... Murals 2021,...

Then in the Painting Page >> Add a Text Block on top >> Add these links. We can use CSS code to change these links color, to make items look like active, no-active.

A little hard to understand. Do you understand this idea?
