Perfect! Thanks so much.

the first line of the code as instructed in the codex article should go after the line that says the_post()

Oops. I forgot about the featured image. It still doesn't show up. I tried these instructions: http://ithemes.com/codex/page/Exchange_FAQs:_How_Do_I_Show_the_Product_Featured_Image_on_Archive/Category_Pages

No luck. Here is the code I am trying (just the loop part of the functions.php file for the extension): http://pastebin.com/Nr9f5b8M

Thanks Ronald. Here is what I got...

This query brings in ALL exchange products (regardless of category).
<?php $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1; query_posts( 'post_type=it_exchange_prod', '&paged=$paged' ); ?>

This query narrowed the posts to the category I needed.
<?php $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1; query_posts("it_exchange_category=rug-display-combo&post_type=it_exchange_prod&paged=$paged"); ?>

So glad it works now! Your help is appreciated.

this (red) part of code doesn't seem correct, what do you try to accomplish?


Can you take that out, and try again?

To select a category, you can use the "category name" parameter, see http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/query_posts#All_Posts_in_a_Category

I want a page to show one Exchange Product Category using the portfolio extension. I do this all the time...

The problems...
1. My above referenced query does not single out the Exchange Category. Instead, it shows all of the exchange products. If done correctly, only the first post on this page should show (Kimberly Kuhn Rug).
2. The product image isn't showing. Can you apply the FAQ instructions you referenced to an extension rather than a archive/category page?

Hi Doug,

I'm not sure know what your question is.  You said you can get the layout to display, correct?  Are you not able to pull in the products?  

Unfortunately, there are known issues with Exchange and Builder Views.  That shouldn't stop the products from being pulled display, just how they are displayed.

As for the product images, they won't display on category pages by default.  You will need to edit your archive.php (or category.php file, depending on your theme):  http://ithemes.com/codex/page/Exchange_FAQs:_How_Do_I_Show_the_Product_Featured_Image_on_Archive/Category_Pages

If you can clarify the issue you're having, we'll do our best to help you out.

I'm trying to display links to a product category using the Portfolio Extension.

I can get the layout to display all Exchange products using this query in the extension functions.php file:
<?php $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1; query_posts("it_exchange_category&tag_ID=7&post_type=it_exchange_prod&paged=$paged"); ?>

I have tried different combinations of the query but keep hitting a brick wall. Also, the product image is not appearing.
