Categories and tags on portfolio subpages (or other)

Go to solution Solved by Ziggy,

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have a client who wants me to make a page on their website just like this: https://healthywatersheds.ca/projects/

They want to be able to showcase their different products, have the ability to search through via categories/tags (which watersheds, which organization, etc) and -- if possible -- for each to just be a little pop up window. Basically exactly mimicking this page/subpages, but on Squarespace 7.1. 

I know that stores have their own categories, but is there any other template that can do this? Or code I can insert into a portfolio page? I saw something for blogs, but the blog subpages are so mediocre in terms of style. 

Thank you so much!

First thing I can suggest is that for complex filters this is a great option (it is an affiliate link):

As for how to set it up, this plugin may help with the lightbox element, but it may become difficult to manage.

The "auto-layout" list sections might be a reasonable way to layout the content, but they're not (as far as I'm aware) compatible with the universal filter plugin from SquareWebsites. So you may want to consider the portfolio page instead of the blog as both of those are filterable, but that has limitations in terms of number of pages and content on the landing page, no excerpts etc. Despite the blog item pages not being as flexible to set up, they are likely to be your best option.

This is an interesting problem to solve, lots of options, none perfect, different limitations etc.
