With the Portfolio plugin you can create a unique page for displaying portfolio items consisting of screenshots and additional information such as description, short description, URL, date of completion, etc. Moreover you can add not just one, but many screenshots to one portfolio item for better visual guidance.

Requires WordPress at least: 3.1

Features

* Actions: Create a template with page navigation to display all portfolio items.
* Actions: Regenerate thumbnails after changing their size.

* Actions: Edit labels of additional fields.
* Display: Enable/disable the option of additional fields displaying.

Recommended Plugins

The author of the Portfolio also recommends the following plugins:
* Updater – This plugin updates WordPress core and the plugins to the recent versions. You can also use the auto mode or manual mode for updating and set email notifications.
There is also a premium version of the plugin Updater Pro with more useful features available. It can make backup of all your files and database before updating. Also it can forbid some plugins or WordPress Core update.

Technical support

Dear users, our plugins are available for free download. If you have any questions or recommendations regarding the functionality of our plugins (existing options, new options, current issues), please feel free to contact us. Please note that we accept requests in English only. All messages in another languages won’t be accepted. If you notice any bugs in the plugins, you can notify us about it and we’ll investigate and fix the issue then. Your request should contain URL of the website, issues description and WordPress admin panel credentials. Moreover we can customize the plugin according to your requirements. It’s a paid service (as a rule it costs $40, but the price can vary depending on the amount of the necessary changes and their complexity). Please note that we could also include this or that feature (developed for you) in the next release and share with the other users then. We can fix some things for free for the users who provide translation of our plugin into their native language (this should be a new translation of a certain plugin).

  1. 1. Upload the folder portfolio to the directory /wp-content/plugins/
  2. 2. Activate the plugin via the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. 3. Please check if you have the template files ‘portfolio.php’ and ‘portfolio-post.php’ in your templates directory. If you can’t find these files, then just copy them from the directory ‘/wp-content/plugins/portfolio/template/’ to your templates directory.
  4. 4. Create a page and select a template in the Page Attributes block.
  5. 5. Create (if necessary) Technologies and Executor profiles.
  6. 6. Create portfolio item, add title, description, short description, and upload the images one of which should be set as featured. Publish portfolio then.

I don’t see my Portfolio page

  1. 1. First of all, you should create your first Portfolio page and select ‘Portfolio Template’ in the list of available templates.
  2. 2. If you cannot find ‘Portfolio Template’ in the list of available templates, then just copy it from the directory ‘/wp-content/plugins/portfolio/template/’ to your templates directory.

How to use a plugin?

  1. 1. Add necessary technologies using this page http://example.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=portfolio_technologies&post_type=portfolio
  2. 2. This is optional. Fill this page http://example.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=portfolio_executor_profile&post_type=portfolio – create an executor profile. Fill out the fields ‘Name’ and ‘Description’. The ‘Description’ field contains a link to the executor page.
  3. 3. Click ‘Add New’ in the ‘Portfolio’ menu and fill out your page. Set the necessary values for the Technologies and Executors Profile widgets.

How to add an image?

Use WordPress meta box to upload images from URL or your local storage. Please note that one of the images should be set as ‘Featured’ – it will be the main image of your portfolio item.

I updated the plugin, the template changed, but I would like to revert it back as it was before? What should I do?

Sometimes during the plugin update the plugin template in your theme is also updated. Meanwhile a backup of the previous template verion is created and it contains the files portfolio-post.php.bak and portfolio.php.bak. You should compare the old files with the new ones and apply the necessary changes to the new files.

I was wondering what determines the order of portfolio posts on the Portfolio page

‘orderby’ => ‘menu_order’, menu_order
orderby (string) – Sort retrieved posts by parameter. Defaults to ‘date’.
‘none’ – No order (available with Version 2.8).
‘ID’ – Order by post id. Note the captialization.
‘author’ – Order by author.
‘title’ – Order by title.
‘date’ – Order by date.
‘modified’ – Order by last modified date.
‘parent’ – Order by post/page parent id.
‘rand’ – Random order.
‘comment_count’ – Order by number of comments (available with Version 2.9).
‘menu_order’ – Order by Page Order. Used most often for Pages (Order field in the Edit Page Attributes box) and for Attachments (the integer fields in the Insert / Upload Media Gallery dialog), but could be used for any post type with distinct ‘menu_order’ values (they all default to 0).
‘meta_value’ – Note that a ‘meta_key=keyname’ must also be present in the query. Note also that the sorting will be alphabetical which is fine for strings (i.e. words), but can be unexpected for numbers (e.g. 1, 3, 34, 4, 56, 6, etc, rather than 1, 3, 4, 6, 34, 56 as you might naturally expect).
‘meta_value_num’ – Order by numeric meta value (available with Version 2.8). Also note that a ‘meta_key=keyname’ must also be present in the query. This value allows for numerical sorting as noted above in ‘meta_value’.
‘order’=>’ASC’, ‘order’=>’DESC’, –
‘ASC’ – ascending order from lowest to highest values (1, 2, 3; a, b, c).
‘DESC’ – descending order from highest to lowest values (3, 2, 1; c, b, a).

I’m getting the following error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_post_thumbnail_id()

This error means that your theme doesn’t support thumbnails, in order to add this option please find the file ‘functions.php’ in your theme and add the following strings to this file:
add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'theme_setup' );
function theme_setup() {
add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
}
After that your theme will support thumbnails and the error will disappear.

I have some problems with the plugin’s work. What Information should I provide to receive proper support?

Please make sure that the problem hasn’t been discussed yet on our forum (http://support.bestwebsoft.com). If no, please provide the following data along with your problem’s description:

  1. 1. the link to the page where the problem occurs
  2. 2. the name of the plugin and its version. If you are using a pro version – your order number.
  3. 3. the version of your WordPress installation
  4. 4. copy and paste into the message your system status report. Please read more here: Instuction on System Status

    Also, we had been using it to list items on a page- it does not do that any more!

    Plugin is great! How to show all portfolio items (with featured image) on the same page? Right now, it creates two pages- 10 items on each page.
