Hi Goran I understand clearly what Malik is trying to explain...while removing the portfolio from the specialized profiles solves one thing.... still other issues are not solved...that is I cant add the correct relevant skills that I need because the skills from the specialized profiles are carried over to the portfolio even though I choose not to include this portfolio in the specialized profile... see I am trying to add some LOGO work to my general profile... but if choose either 3D RENDERING or PHOTO RETOUCHING special profile, i cant add graphic design or logo design skills which clearly should be used, since my general profile has theese skills...
It seem so much simpler just to have a dropdown include the specialized profiles AND ALSO the general profile while creating the portfolio...

I have a simple question. I am new to Upwork so I am probably missing something obvious. But I noticed in my portfolio, there are 2 catagories. Ecommerce Deveopment and Web and Mobile Design. Unfortentally, I am unable to figure out out to change what of my projects appear under what catagory. Right now it is split down the middle. Some Ecommerce projects will appear under Web and Mobile Design vis-versa.
How do I fix this?
Also, is there a way to change these catagory titles? I would personally like the 2 catagories to be:
While uploading a new portfolio item you're selecting a Related Specialized Profile. Specialized Profiles allow freelancers to better showcase their portfolio items in a format that helps clients find best freelancers for their specific projects. However, if don't want a portfolio item to show on a Specialized profile, you can go to that profile's portfolio section, click on the pencil icon in the upper right corner of that section and then un-select that item from the list.
You can check this help article for more information about editing a Specialized Profile.
Thank you for the reply. I think I might be experiencing a bug. Because my two specialized profiles are Ecommerce Development and Web Deisgn (as seen in screenshot). But when I scroll down to my porfolio, the 2 options are Ecommerce Development and Web & Mobile Design (as seen in screenshot). If I pick one, for example Web & Mobile Design, a Ecommerce project appears in it (screenshot attached).
I am only experincing this on my General Profile. If I go to any of my speicalized profiles, it appears correctly.
