How to Create a Filterable Portfolio in WordPress
In this article you’ll learn how to create filterable portfolio on your WordPress website. For this we’ll be using the Envira Gallery plugin which is a premium plugin and you’ll want to have the plus plan or higher to access the tags addon. So to get started head over to Envira Gallery and purchase the plus or higher plugin.
Then you’ll go to your account, go to downloads.
And you can download the plugin from here.
After you’ve downloaded it let’s head over to our WordPress dashboard we’ll go over to our plugins area, Add New.
After we Add New you actually want to upload the plugin.
You can choose the file.
Now let’s click Install.
And once it’s installed we’ll also want to Activate it.
Next you’ll see an indication that we need to add the License Key.
So let’s click on here
to take us to our Envira Licence Key area where we can paste the license key.
You can find your license key anywhere on your account area, under downloads it’s right here.
So I’ll take that, copy it and now let’s paste it.
Make sure we verify the key.
And now that we’ve verified we are good to go you need to go down to our addons area because we’re looking for the tags addon to activate.
I’ll scroll down until I find my tags addon right here again we’ll Install it
and Activate it, so that then it’s available for us.
Now let’s create a new gallery.
So I’m going to go to Add New.
And create a Gallery.
You can select the files from your computer
or find all the photos that you want to add.
Once all the photos are uploaded we can scroll down and see them. These are all of the images that are currently in our gallery and from here we can click on each of the little pencil icons to add the tag that we want.
So down here we’ll add a tag for this article you can add multiple tags if you want separating it by a comma.
When we click Save and close.
And I’m going to add a couple more tags, again this will be a landscape as well, make sure you add all the tags that you want to show up for all of them. After we’ve added all the tags to the images lets also make sure that we click on the tags tab and enable filtering here.
This is where the tags will show up when you’re viewing the gallery.
Lets do it below.
Once we’ve enabled it and added the tags for filtering we can click update on the gallery.
To see it in action and we see our gallery here.
And here are the tags that we can filter on.
It’s a great and easy way to create a filterable portfolio for your WordPress website.
