Fudging it – doing it back to front solution would be:
Use Blog (and redux plugin functionality) for all external news items
Use Portfolio for all Paolo’s actual written articles, try this Weds am first thing to see if a go-er – can I style a Portfolio page easily for him to use. Will it list OK on the blog page. May have other drawbacks.
Example below is successfully pulling in the custom post type ‘News Links’ but even though I can now make taxonomy appear in the News Link edit page – STILL CANNOT PULL IN THE EXTERNAL LINK FIELD BUILT INTO THE CUSTOM POST TYPE
Example below trying for categorized portfolio posts with extra field added for link…but how do I make the new field with title as link show?? I don’t want links to an empty portfolio page, just an external link.
Option 1: Use Posts (and external link plugin hyperlinked title) for NEWS ITEM LINKS
Done using JetElements Posts module source is Posts.
Option 1: Because cannot use Posts for blogs, use Portfolios for this.
Then can display these on homepage ‘show latest portfolios’ and on Blog page.
Above section pulls in the Jet Elements Posts module, which allows you to specify which categories to show. The categories are also clickable above the photo to see similar items.
This loop must be kept up to date with any new categories added, or the post won’t show. It also must NOT display any of the news categories.
