Linking to filtered portfolio widget from another page

We have a portfolio widget on our home page, with a project filter that works just fine.
We would like to link back to the project section on the home page by clicking a link from another page, but with just a subset of the projects displayed, and the relevant button on the project filter highlighted, just as if the user had clicked that button.
We can easily link back to the home page with the project section scrolled into view, but nothing we have tried simulates the pre-selection of the desired subset.
Is there a way of doing this?

Hello, I don’t think that there is an easy way to do it, unfortunately.

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi Roman
Thanks for your very prompt reply.
I was beginning to fear this would be the case…
I tried messing around with the “data-filter” attribute, but it didn’t seem to work.
Let me know if you suddenly think of a solution.
Many thanks

You are welcome Lawrence, you can also experiment with some gallery plugins.

Kind Regards, Roman.

P. S.
I’ve just checked some popular gallery plugins and they don’t seem to have filtering, unfortunately.
