Yes, I mean category.php is using code from content-project.php to display a preview of a custom post type. archive-project.php is also using this same code from content-project.php to display the same preview on an archive page. They are both pulling the template code via get_template_part('content', 'project');. Every field for a project cpt can be displayed except the gallery field when viewing a category. That is the only field that doesn’t work, and only when viewing a category.
