I am developing a wordpress website and want to use the Visual Portfolio plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/visual-portfolio/). This plugin gives me the ability to display a gallery of posts. It also gives me the ability query my posts with a custom query string:

field in the visual portfolio plugin where I add in a custom query

What I want to do:

I want the visual portfolio plugin to query all images in my media library with the category gallery.

What I have done:

I have used the F4 Media Taxonomies plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/f4-media-taxonomies/) to give categories to my images. According to that plugin's directions, I have added the following code to my functions.php to enable the taxonomy category:

add_action('init', function() {
    register_taxonomy_for_object_type('category', 'attachment');

Next, on the page where I create my Visual Portfolio gallery (screenshot above), I add in the following query string:


What happens:

The Visual Portfolio plugin simply displays all the images in my media library, not just images with category gallery.

Any ideas? Thanks

  • This gives me the same result; the plugin displays all the images in my media library. – Ben393 Jan 15 at 12:28
