The Problem : I need to make a website of my Portfolio using Advanced Custom Fields and Custom Post Types UI plugins.
Approach 1: Make a seperate post type for each Portfolio type (photgraphy projects, website development projects, videography projects)
Approach 2: Make only one post type of (portfolio) , and then add custom fields with all the required values for all project typed, and use PHP conditional statements on the back end to select the relevant fields only and show them according to the portfolio type (a custom field of its own)
Which is better ?
It seems to me that the first approach is simple and more straight forward, but I'm thinking what If I would like to show all my projects on a simple page, how would I be able to show several post types together ...
Thanks for helping me out
portfolio. Use meta data to define attributes according to your speicfications and taxonomies to help you categories your types.
