Are there no portfolio features in GeneratePress? Well, the post list plugin, can I use that together with the project post type? Thanks for any help.October 21, 2017 at 8:24 am #407557LeoStaffCustomer Support
Are you referring to WP Show Post? https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-show-posts/
It should work for that.October 21, 2017 at 9:10 am #407576Uwe Pfeifer

I’m wondering, what do you mean with “project post type”?
Thanks!November 3, 2019 at 12:43 pm #1052336LeoStaffCustomer Support
I believe he is referring to custom post type:

Also a follow-up question to the support here please:
I am trying to follow this WP documentation page https://en.support.wordpress.com/portfolios/ but under “Settings → Writing → Content Types” I do not have an option “Portfolio Projects”. Is that to be expected? Can I not use WP Portfolios at all?
Also Portfolios have existed for quite a while now in WP, how come GeneratePress still doesn’t support them?November 3, 2019 at 12:45 pm #1052338Patrik
Ah, thank you for the extremely quick reply Leo! Thanks a lot, I am reading it now. I believe my two follow-up questions regarding WP Portfolios and GP are still relevant though. 🙂November 3, 2019 at 12:46 pm #1052339LeoStaffCustomer Support
That’s not supported by https://wordpress.org/ I don’t believe.
GP doesn’t interfere with any of WordPress.org’s core functions.November 3, 2019 at 12:51 pm #1052343Patrik
Oh, I didn’t realise there was a difference. So there is wordpress.org, which is the self-hosted solution – download WordPress zip and put it online with your own hoster. And this doesn’t support portfolios (?). And then there is wordpress.com, which is the hosted, paid (or “free with ads”) version of blogs hosted *by* and *on* wordpress.com – and this includes Portfolios (and also custom themes, if you pay, hence the question here of how to use GP with Portfolios – i.e. Uwe must be using a paid wordpress.com plan.
Is that about right?November 3, 2019 at 12:55 pm #1052345LeoStaffCustomer Support
Don’t quote me on this but I don’t think GP works with
.comversion of WordPress.
Our theme is only listed with the
As for the portfolio question, it would be best to check with WordPress support.November 3, 2019 at 1:07 pm #1052353Patrik
Hmm! Then Uwe’s question still doesn’t make sense to me – if GP only works with wp.org (and not wp.com), but Portfolios are only available on wp.com, then how come Uwe asks about using GP with Portfolios. Puzzling.November 3, 2019 at 1:19 pm #1052360LeoStaffCustomer Support
I believe he is just asking for a portfolio like feature, not exactly the feature in wp.comNovember 4, 2019 at 6:19 am #1052751Patrik
You might be right.November 4, 2019 at 6:56 am #1052784DavidStaffCustomer Support
just to clarify a few things so as other viewers don’t get confused:
1. GeneratePress theme can be used on wp .com
2. The GP premium plugin like all 3rd party plugins requires a business account on wp .com to be installed.
