How to create a multi-level filter with TZ Portfolio


Hi guys, 

Since TZ Portfolio+ version 2.2.5, we have already make an awesome improvement in filter section, which allows users to create a hierarchal filter displaying both primary category and sub-categories. We're well aware of the importance of how specific category levels are, so that visitors on your website can view more insights about your portfolio.
Today, I would like to share with you the way to achieve a multi-level filter with TZ Portfolio. Let's go!

I. Install TZ Portfolio+ 

​There are 2 easy ways to install TZ Portfolio+. 
  1. Install from web
    - Go to Admin > Extensions > Manage > Install > Add "install from web" tab > Search for TZ Portfolio 
    - Click on install button
  2. Download from the website
    - Go to http://tzportfolio.com/ and download TZ Portfolio+ component
    - Go to Admin > Extensions > Manage > Install > Upload file

Create categories and sub-categories

To display the multi-level filter in the best look, you're supposed to create not only primary categories, but their sub-categories also. 

  • Go to Admin > Components > TZ Portfolio+ > Categories > Add new
  • To create a sub-category, just add new one and assign it to a parent category

II. Create portfolio articles

​You'd better create portfolio articles for each main category and sub-categories. To do that:

  • Go to Admin > Components > TZ Portfolio+ > Articles > Add new
  • Insert content and information, as well as configure basic options on the right side.

III. Configure filter style

In version 2.2.5, we have added a filter option with Elegant style, so you need to configure this option in elegant layout. Elegant is a style included in the core component, so there is no need to install it. 

  • Go to Admin > Components > TZ Portfolio+ > Layout > Elegant - Default
  • Choose filter style: Drop-down

IV. Let filter show 

This step is to create a new menu item for the portfolio page and configure filter option.​
  • Go to Admin > Menus > Main Menu > Add new
  • Menu item type: TZ Portfolio+ > Portfolio
  • Categories: select all categories and sub-categories that are created above
  • TZ Portfolio+ layout: elegant - Default (required) 

​After all, you can have a multilevel filter displayed like this below

Final words 

Release TZ Portfolio+ 2.2.6 and add-on updates
Release TZ Portfolio+ 2.2.5
