I love Sydney. Thanks for creating it. However I would like to add more than 8 projects. Can I add more projects by changing the short code
[sydney-masonry posts=“8” show_all_text=“See all” post_type=“projects” filter=“yes” include=""]

to for example 12
[sydney-masonry posts=“12” show_all_text=“See all” post_type=“projects” filter=“yes” include=""]

or even more?
If so, why isn’t it working on my website (
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hello @gimor,

  1. Please make sure that you have enough projects to display and that those projects are in appropriate categories.

  2. Then, please use something like this:

[sydney-masonry posts="15" show_all_text="See all"
post_type="projects" filter="yes"

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hello Roman and thank you very much for your help. It certainly works now.

Say, will the projects be always arrange in alphabetical order or is there any chance to display them different? Like:

[sydney-masonry posts=“15” show_all_text="See all"
post_type=“projects” filter="yes"


You are welcome @gimor,

You can rearrange projects by changing Published date.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Thank you very much Roman for your assistance.


You are welcome Gimor,

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

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi Roman and Gimor,

I can’t increase my projects from:
sydney-masonry posts="8"
sydney-masonry posts=“16”

Under Settings/writing, I changed the custom content types to ‘16’,
Yet my shortcode either freezes or stays at:sydney-masonry posts=‘8’

Any wisdom would be appreciated.


Hello John,

Currently I can see on your site that you have thirteen projects (not eight).

You should add/modify shortcode in Text widget on your page, not in settings.

By the way, it is better to create your own topic for your question to keep forum in good order.

Kind Regards, Roman.
