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 or portfolio-pro to the directory /wp-content/plugins/

Instruction on Installation.

I don’t see my Portfolio page

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

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 version is created and it contains the files portfolio-post.php.bak and portfolio.php.bak or portfolio-pro-post.php.bak and portfolio-pro.php.bak . You should compare the old files with the new ones and apply the necessary changes to the new files. If you want to templates are not overwritten when updating the plugin, turn off the checkbox in “Rewrite templates after update” option on the plugin settings page and save the changes.

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:

  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

      This error says that your theme doesn’t support thumbnail option, in order to add this option please find ‘functions.php’ file in your theme and add strings below to this file:

      add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'theme_setup' );

    i install the plugin but it disturbs my whole site foot came up on all my pages… plz check can send me solution of it as soon as possible…

    • bws_com

      This is impossible, plugin cannot change website layout style, because plugin template styles are used for plugin only.

      • Ricard

        I have the same problem as Zubair.
        If I activate your plugin, my footer comes up. I’m using an smtheme.
        Please, try to fix it.
        Thank you

          Hello Ricard,

          Thank you for contacting us.

          You got the visual errors which are related to your theme. Our free services are not applied to the layout stylizing of custom WordPress themes. All standard WordPress themes support our plugins. If you’ll install standard theme 2010 or 2011 then everything will be displayed correctly. We are not responsible for differences between custom and standard themes. We understand that not every user can edit styles and add necessary changes to the plugin template manually, and that is why we are offering our service in order to help you and adjust plugin for your current WordPress theme. If you have programming skills then you will cope with this modification easily.

          Kind regards

  3. Candi

    Can we link the pics to a different site when they are clicked on?

    • bws_com

      Unfortunately this functionality is not provided by the plugin.

  4. Christina

    Hello, is there a ‘latest portfolio entries’ or related widget to display x of the entries with thumbnails? I only see a technologies widget.

    • bws_com

      There is no such widget but you can use shortcode [latest_portfolio_items count=3] in the content of the pages.

  5. Mark Larson

    Is there a way to insert a photo into the Gallery from the Media Library? I can add new photos from my computer without a problem, but I can’t seem to find a way to add from the Media Library.

    • bws_com

      Unfortunately our plugin doesn’t have such kind of option. It is necessary to to upload images from the portfolio editing page and use Media Library for this.

      • Ricard

        I have the same problem as Mark.

        If I activate your plugin, my footer comes up. I’m using an smtheme.

        Please, try to fix it.

  6. Neil

    Hi there, Executor Profile seems to be another name for Categories, however I’ve set 3 up (Web Design, eCommerce and Marketing) and although I’ve assigned a Portfolio item to Web Design, it doesn’t seem to have done anything.

    I was hoping that we could segment the Portfolio page into the three area’s (or setup 3 different pages – 1 for each cat) so prospects could look only at what we;ve designed, or only what we’ve marketed. Is that possible?

    If no could you point me in the direction of what Executors Profiles are about?

    Cheers, Neil

    • bws_com

      Executor Profile is something like category, but it saves user’s information which is carry out the project.
      In your case will be better to use Technology this is more looks like WordPress’s categories.
      And also Technology widget
      You can check how works this functionality on our website on the Portfolio page.

  7. Wil

    Can you guys tell me what an Executor Profile is and how it is meant to be used.

    I added once called “Test 123” and added it to a portfolio.

    Damned if I can see it anywhere?

    What are they?

    • Anton

      ‘Executors Profile’ – information about person who has made the project (responsible person (name)).
      It displays on the portfolio page (single portfolio) if you selected ‘Executor’ in the ‘Display additional fields’ block on the wp-admin/admin.php?page=portfolio.php page in the admin panel.

  8. Nate Mitchell

    Hi guys, this plugin looks great, though when I install it and click add, I get a completely blank page.

    I followed these instructions but can’t seem to find the portfolio or portfolio-post.php files anywhere?

    • Anton

      You need to copy files from the ‘template’ foulder to the folder with your theme (physically) via FTP or cPanel.

  9. Christina

    Hi, is it possible to have a navigation of technologies as tags to organize a portfolio by? Such as

    for categories, can this be done for the portfolio?

    • Anton

      There is the output of technologies on portfolio page — please go to the page of the plugin settings wp-admin/admin.php?page=portfolio.php, check that all check marks are set up in the block «Display additional fields», save changes and then, technologies will be displayed under each portfolio on portfolio page. Everything is already implemented in the template and you should not add anything. It is impossible to output technologies with the help of standard WordPress settings — they work only with standart categories.

  10. Vibha

    Thanks for plugin. I am having one issue. If image is landscape or portrait and i have set image size 250X250 then it is not maintaining ratio and always generating square image, so some of image part is cut.

    • Anton

      I found the solution:

      in =>function prtfl_image_resize_dimensions, $crop is somehow always passed as true, so it always crops an image.
      So if i make it 0 before condition, image retains it’s ratio.
      $crop = 0;
      if ( $crop ) {

      I hope this makes a sense.
      BTW nice plugin, Thanks for sharing.

  11. Tefeles Ionut

    How the hell do you display the damn portfolios????

    I need a page where they are all displayed 🙁

    • bws_lvp

      Hello,

      if you need a page where all portfolios will be displayed, you should create the page and assign the template Portfolio to it.

  12. Lukn4help

    Hello, Is there a way to customize the portfolio plugin’s alignment? I would like the thumbnails and descriptions be centered inside the black box, http://achallaestcouture.com/?page_id=14 , thank you!

    • bws_lvp

      Hello,

      please add the follwing code to css file (at the end of the file or find and change styles for these elements):

      /* line: 100 */
      #container {
      background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #0B0B0E;
      border-top: 3px solid #121316;
      color: #686868;
      margin: 10px auto 0;
      overflow: hidden;
      width: 960px;
      }

      /* line: 240 */
      #content {
      /* float: left; */
      margin: 0 auto;
      width: 920px;
      }

      /* line: 104 */
      #container .breadcrumbs {
      margin-top: 10px;
      }

      In standard CSS the width of the block .portfolio_short_content is 335px (the description block is to the right of featured-image). The distance between the featured image and description is too big; you can increase the width of the block in order to reduce it

      .portfolio_short_content up to 620px.
      /* line: 138 */
      .portfolio_short_content{
      width: 620px;
      }

      Note: in the field “Description” that is on the page of the separate portfolio (for example, http://achallaestcouture.com/portfolio/a-geisha/ ) you should add text-description but not images.

  13. matthew

    thanks for the plugin. How do you limit the item in the portfolio page to 5 items and get the pagination like in your portfolio (http://bestwebsoft.com/portfolio/) ?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Matthew,

      You can limit posts and portfolio in the admin panel: Settings->Reading-> Blog pages show at most

  14. Secua

    Hello,
    Is there a premium version of the plugin that we can purchase, with additional features ?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Secua,

      Please send the list of all additional features you want to add to the plugin and we will estimate them.

    Hi, I have been building a website with a theme called rework from pixelentity. The display was all wrong. Now I found out that it has to do with your plugin After deactivating it it was all ok.

    It has to do something with a float that doesn’t work. Can send you the files if you want to look in to it.

          Hello Trayan,
          Regarding your question:

          According to the used template have to present the sidebar on the right – but you don’t have it.

          Please add the sidebar and everything will be look correctly.

          Kind regards

    I want to use the Portfolio pluging to create a catalog with 25 categories.
    In the principal page there appears only 16 categories, so I need to increase it. How can I do it?
    Thanks!

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Juan,

      The number of portfolio on page is specified by the value posts_per_page (it is set up in the admin panel on the page wp-admin/options-reading.php).

    I can’t seem te get the image working with in the lightbox and getting this error:

      Hello,
      Please provide URL of the page in order to analyze the problem.

  18. Anderson Martins

    I made a single.php file with the following content:

    The plugin creates two files: portfolio.php and portfolio-post.php, renamed the portfolio-post.ph to portfolioPost-single.php, and created a file called single-single.php. It works, but the problem remains remains not show the full content.

    URL: http://b2bd.com.br/website/?attachment_id=676

    Would like help, thanks.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Anderson,

      Please do not rename nothing, the plugin works only with files portfolio.php and portfolio-post.php.

      What is wrong exactly? Please provide the page URL ans describe what is wrong there.

      Waiting for your reply.

    Hi,

    What a great plugin developed by you :). Cheers…

    I want to change the date format for the portfolio plugin.

    I just need 1,1970 instead of January 17, 1970.

    Please help me with this as this very critical issue for my client.

    Thanks in advance,

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Moin,

      The single portfolio page template has this string:

      $date_compl = date( get_option( ‘date_format’ ), strtotime( $date_compl[1].”-“.$date_compl[0].’-‘.$date_compl[2] ) );

      I. e . we take the date format, which is recorded at the wp-admin/options-general.php page in the Date Format section.

      Please change the date format at this page and the portfolio format will change.

      Kind regards

    Hi,

    Love your plugin. Have a question: is a short code available for specific portfolios. I have over 10 portfolios that i need to organize on 4 different pages. I was thinking to use short code on specific page to organize my work.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello William,

      It is not clear, you need the 4 different pages with 10 portfolio on the each page or you need the 1 page with page navigation of 10 portfolios on the page?

      Waiting for your reply.

      • william

        I need 4 pages for 2-3 portfolios per page.

        • bws_lvp

          It is not clear – it will be the 4 different pages or it will be one page with page navigation?

  21. Ed Markowski

    Hello, is there a instruction manual for this the portfoio plugin? I do not think the options are clear and how do you to edit the portfolio template. Any information would be great, thanks.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Ed,

      You can find the instructions in the file “Read me” in the plugin or in the plugin page at the WordPress site.
      If you say what exactly you want to do, we can give you recommendations.

      Kind regards

  22. Christina

    Hello, I’m using [latest_portfolio_items count=4] to show the latest entries, but it’s not showing the latest entries. I have portfolio entries submitted after the 4 that are showing, but the latest will not show. It appears to be stuck on the current 4… I made a new entry to test this and the entry did not show up on my home page under the latest portfolio gigs. No idea what’s wrong…?

    • bws_lvp

      We will fix this bug in the nearest future, but you can fix it yourself now.
      Please open the portfolio.php file from plugin folder, find the string 999

      ‘orderby’ => ‘data’,

      and change it like this:

      ‘orderby’ => ‘date’,

      save changes.

      Kind regards

  23. william

    is there any way to make featured image non clickable?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello William,

      You should change the template code in the theme, so that instead of the image in the link will deduce just the image.

  24. steve bittle

    So what if my theme does not have the Portfolio selection in the atribute section? I am using PBK Mega Menu and it doe snot offer this as a page selection.

    FYI the portfolio.php files is loaded in the editor.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Steve,

      You mean, when you edit the ordinary page you don’t have the necessary template in the template selection block?

      Looking forward to your reply.

    Are there plans to have in-built functions to add custom Portfolio taxonomies? I find I need more than Executor Profile & Technologies.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello,

      We can add any number through plugin customization. If you have experience, then you can do it yourself. If not, we can help you with this, but it is a paid service.

      Looking forward to your reply.

      Kind regards

  26. Kay

    Before I get too much into the redesign of my site… will this plugin export correctly when I migrate from a test server (using BackupBuddy), or will I have to rebuild it?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Kay,

      In your case, it will be the best to make the database and files transference with help of cpanel. Because some plugins can’t make the information import by custom types of posts.

      Kind regards

  27. Justus

    The date on the portfolio page and single portfolio page is displayed in English. Anyone an idea how to change this into Dutch?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Justus

      We are displaying the date with help of standard WordPress functions, respectively if you have the WordPress on Dutch language, everything must display correctly.
      But you can fix it, if something is wrong:
      – template portfolio.php the string 80 and 89
      change date to date_i18n
      – template portfolio-post.php the string 41 and 52
      change date to date_i18n

      Kind regards

  28. Will

    I’ve got the plugin working ok, but can’t seem to get the “more screenshots” feature to work.

    Images added to the post stay in the post, some however do appear in the “more screenshots” section.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Will,

      If you want to use more screenshots” section, it is necessary to reupload images on page with portfolio, not to choose them from already existed section in the standard WordPress media gallery.

      Kind regards

  29. wolfgang

    Thanks for this great plugin. Works pretty well. But I found one thing which is a bit strange. Not sure if it is a bug or just not knowing me hoer to handle it: if I create a post (portfolio item), write a text, add some images (via Media Upload) – everything is fine. If I then delete the images, they ar not visible any more in the Editor section, but still in the frontend. The database seams also to be up to date. Only the singel portfolio view is messed up. Strange enough that I cannot find the images (visible in the frontend) in the backend. Hope you can retrace somehow what I’m trying to explain.
    Do you have an idea how I can deal with that issue? Did I miss something or just messed something up?

    Thanks
    Wolfgang

    • bws_lvp

      Hello,

      If I then delete the images, they ar not visible any more in the Editor section, but still in the frontend. – I.e portfolio works with attached images, than it is not necessary to insert the added image to content. And when you will remove it from content, it will not disappear, because it stays attached to this portfolio.

      Kind regards

      • David

        I have the same problem. How do I remove pictures from the portfolio. I’ve already deleted them from the editor section, but they’re still showing in the frontend.

        -David

        • bws_lvp

          Hello David,

          The portfolio can’t work with images in content. It can work only with attached images. (I.e. images, which were loaded to media library on the portfolio edit page)
          Please remove image from media library and it will not be in the frontend.

          Kind regards

  30. Jordan

    Hello David,

    I can’t seem to change the order of the pages in my portfolio. I tried in settings but it isn’t doing anything. I would like the pages to be ordered from newest entry by date (at the top of the first page) to oldest entry (at the bottom of the last page). If you could let me know how to make this change I would really appreciate it.

    Kind regards.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Jordan,

      Please provide a screenshot of portfolio settings page from admin area.

    I try to use your portfolio, but my problem is to sort in first time, the “categories”, and when you walk in, the order of the images in there.

    How can I get it?

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Jordi,

      Please can you describe in more details, what exactly is wrong – it is not clear – to sort in first time ? the “categories”? the order of the images in there ?
      It will be better if you could provide a pages URL with portfolio and give explanation on this page example.

      Kind regards

  33. Andre

    A few problems I’ve discovered….you need to add a prefix to your #content and anything else without a prefix because there are themes that uses these common container naming standards. The other is that your plugin seems to load the portfolio.php and portfolio-post.php files in the theme files on it’s own. Not really a good idea because a theme might have similar files named the same way. Also, you are loading the header, footer, and sidebar in your template. I would really recommend making your layout just the “content’ part only because some themes use a different structure. Mine for instance uses the Bootstrap framework and your plugin breaks out everything. You’re on a good start of a nice plugin, but some tweaking needs to be done.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Andre,

      Thank you for your offer. We will think about it.

      Kind regards

    • bws_lvp

      Hello,

      It is not clear, what do you mean exactly. Because the Portfolio plugin can upload multiple images.
      Please describe your question in more details.

      Kind regards

    I would like to take the “Short Description” and “Date Completed” titles from the Portfolio Plug-in I have installed. How can I change it so those are not displayed?

    Appreciate the help. Thank you

      Hello Christie,

      Please turn off the necessary fields on the plugin settings page wp-admin/admin.php?page=portfolio.php => “Display additional fields ” .

  37. Ali

    Hello,
    I am having trouble increasing the number of items in the portfolio. Here’s what is happening: I can upload the items in the back end to the portfolio and they will appear, but when I add new items the old ones will disappear in the front end, but will still appear in the back end. It seems like I can only have 10 items appearing under the “all” tag in the portfolio front end. I tried increasing number of posts per page under blog settings to 30, but that did not work. I only began to run into this problem when I separated the portfolio items into galleries (i.e. Writing, Design, Photojournalism) and this problem did not exist before. Do you have any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Ali

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Ali,

      Please provide a screenshot of reading settings page in admin area + make sure, that the page Writing, Design, Photojournalism are based on the Portfolio template.

      Kind regards

  38. jayant

    hi i install this plugin and i set count=3 but when i add 4rth item pagination should start but it did not start pagination instead it disappear first item and display last 3 items
    how can i get pagination please help.

    • bws_lvp

      Hello Jayant,
      Do you add the portfolio with help of shortcode? If yes, then this short code should be added the Latest Portfolio Items to your page or post.
      If you want to display all portfolios, then it is necessary to create a page and give the Portfolio template to it.

      Kind regards

  39. Mr Jones

    Hi

    I’m using the Technologies as Categories to separate my portfolios.

    My question which shortcode do I use to only display items from the one category ?

    like this shows items from all categories: [latest_portfolio_items count=3]

    but how to only show items from only one category ?

    thankyou

      Hi Mr Jones,

    i have installed the plugin and activated it now how i have to use this??

  41. Anna

    Hello,
    I installed your plugin in my wordpress. In the menu I have portoflio and submenus: 2D, Photography, 3D. I want to add pictures of my work to the site but when I upload pictures by “Add portfolio Item” for 2D it appears also in Photography, 3D. I want to upload different work for each of them. How can I do that?

    • Anna

      Hi Anna,

      “I want to upload different work for each of them” – unfortunately, such functionality is not provided. It is necessary to upload them for each portfolio separately.

      Sincerely

    Hey!
    I would like to have Image descriptions only in the Lightbox. It works – but it changes the space below the images. Just like they appear there “invisible”.
    Any suggestions to avoid this?

    Thanks.

      Hi Sebastian,

      Please add the following strings to your theme’s style.css file:

      display: none;
      }

      Sincerely

    Hi I’m sorry – i hate to sound like a total moron but I uploaded your Portfolio plug in and I can’t figure out how to even use it. I can see the Plug in area where i change the setting. I created a test page and changed the template under “page attributes” but I’m not even sure which “page attribute” to select because i think one of the attributes that came with my template has a very similar name to YOUR plug in so can you start by telling me the name of your plug in template page as it appears in the “page attributes” drop down list? THEN once I make sure i select that, then what do i do? do you have instructions somewhere? thank you. Emily

    • Anna

      Hi Emily,

      The template for the page where all your portfolios will be displayed is called ‘Portfolio Template’. You may have already created such a page. Then go to Dashboard and find Portfolio->Add new. Create (if necessary) Technologies and Executor profiles. Create portfolio item, add title, description, short description, and upload the images one of which should be set as featured. Publish portfolio then. Finally you will see your portfolios on the page, which was assigned ‘Portfolio Template’.

      Sincerely
