I’d like the portfolio page on my new website to be based on Projects rather than Posts with the possibility to search per Project Type.
As you can see on my portfolio page https://paulovancuijck.nl/staging2/portf/ ,
now the categories direct to Posts where I’d like them to direct to Projects instead.
On my current website https://www.spotonlichtontwerp.nl/highlighted/ I’ve been able to categorise Project Types so it should be possible within your theme too I’d think.
How do I make this happen?

@paulospotonlichtontwerp-nl: Hello Paulo,
I was not able to understand the issue you are having. Can you please further explain your issue?

On my website I wanna use a page which shows my projects. Just the way I’ve done this on my current web page https://www.spotonlichtontwerp.nl/uitgelicht/ on which page the buttons Browse all / By Sectors show my projects per type.
Within your theme I built the page https://paulovancuijck.nl/staging2/portf/ for this.
On this page I wanna have the possibility to show the projects per project type, in my case architectural structures, historic buildings, hospitality, public realm and unique houses. On the page as it is now, you see these categories shown in the right sidebar.
However these categories direct to WP post in stead of to WP projects. Within Posts I can’t properly highlight my projects, I need to use WP projects for this.
Summarizing: I like to show projects types in the right side bar with WP projects hanging underneath.
Can you tell me how to do this?
If not, please forward my question to the head of your support team and ask him/her to come back to me by email in order to answer the query.

As there is no post tyle category listing widget in Essential Content Types plugin. So for this, I suggest you create a Custom Menu. You can create a custom menu from:
1. Go to “Appearance => Customize => Menus” and Click on “Create New Menu” button.
2. Give the name of the menu, For example “Portfolio”, you don’t need to assign any menu location as we are going to use this in widget. So, just click on “Next” after you give name to menu.
3. After this, click on “Add Items” button, and scroll down and click on “Projet Types”, it will display all your postfolio categories, then click on each Project tpye one by one which you want to display. After adding all, click on “Published” button.
4. After this, go to Widget section from “Appearance => Customize => Widgets”, then in the sidebar, click on “Add a Widget” button. Then add “Navigation Menu” widget. Give the title of the widet and in Select Menu, you need to select that “Portfolio” menu which we created.

One more question on this:
I like the use the custom menu ‘Project Type’ on my project page only.
Following your instruction this menu appears on all other pages except for the homepage.
How can I make this menu appear only on the ‘Projecten’ page of my website?

Now sure about that theme but you can use plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/if-widget/

The if-widget didn’t suit. However you pointed me into the right direction. I found this article online https://dev.institute/blog/display-widgets-alternative/ and choose the plugin called Widget Options. It works for me. Thanks.
