Page Type Options for Projects

This is a list of the options that can be used in the Page Type Option field for Projects.


The name of the section you want to display


Instead of using sections, you can take advantage of the tagging system and tag your projects with related keywords. Enter a comma separated list of tags, and only such tagged projects will be shown:

tags= posters, music, festivals


pos (default), title, date, random

What to order the projects by. Pos is your custom order created by dragging and dropping projects in Secretary.


asc (default), desc

How to order the projects, ascending (1, 2, 3.. ; a, b, c... ; oldest first) or descending (3, 2, 1; c, b, a; newest first).


Use this option to limit how many projects are shown. Just enter the maximum number of projects you would like to be displayed.


Use this option to display a specific project. You can enter the database ID number, slug/simple name (can be found when editing a project under the Simple Name/Slug field) or the full title of the project. Using the slug or ID is most reliable.


small (default) or big

This option lets you decide if the projects should be displayed in list form (small) or full form (big: all images/text/content, useful for single page portfolios). Small will use the projects_list.html template of your theme, while big will use the projects_view.html template.


This flexible option lets you override the template used to display projects. For example, you may have a "Featured" page where the layout changes from other "standard" projects. Simply enter the file name of the template you wish to use instead, like "mycustomtemplate.html". The template file must be in the templates folder within the folder of the theme you are using.


Advanced use only. Another very flexible option, this lets you enter the name of a function to override the default actions taken by the system to display projects. Particularly useful if you want to use the functionality provided by a plugin.

func= myCustomFunction
