Yes, the perfect module you want is called ExpressionEngine!

Everything you list is done natively.

New Channel = "Portfolio"

New Category Group called "Portfolio"

Categories as relevant with parents and children

New Field Group containing:

  • "Description" - Rich text field (or third-party wysiwyg)
  • "Images" - Grid field with columns for image title, alt text, link and file
  • "Type of Work" - Rich text field
  • "Customer" - Text field
  • "URL" - text field or if you want validation a URL fieldtype

etc, etc, etc.


Tags - you could use Tagger to select tags on the backend and render them to the frontend. You could use another category group called "tags" that you create categories for. Or a radio select list to choose from in the form of Field Pack

Question is did you want to use the tags for people to search on (so a fieldtype like tagger or FieldPack would be easier), or filter on in the listing - any of these will do the job, although categories may then be easier and more flexible. Either way, there's plenty of ways and options.

    Almost exactly what I was going to say! Except that I suggest a category field for "Type of Work", so you can easily group them, and markdown. @peter, you stole my answer! ;-)

    Good point on the type of work as a category. Also a relationship field for other portfolio items that are similar and you want to link to ;) Oct 26, 2014 at 12:59

    I'd also make the "Customer" field either a relationship or a predefined Select field (assuming you might do more than one thing for any given customer).
