Bad one!!!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Worse plugin i ever see! it was nearly broken my site. Too many HTML error, lightbox functionality broken.

Just BEWARE about this plugin before use it.

Also author blame theme developer, but theme was 100% perfect.

Error on activation and limitations
By , for WP 3.8.1

We always have to applaud the efforts of developers, but this plugin is not quite ready for deployment, though it's close. Here's why:

1. The plugin generates an error upon activation: 'The plugin generated 566 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.'

2. The code wraps everything in a pre instead of a div, so a long list of categories goes off the page to the right. Chrome's dev tool showed how it all wraps nicely to the container if pre is changed to div.

3. Only one category can be assigned to each portfolio item. Many times a project fits into more than one category.

Finally, and this is not a criticism, it's useful to clarify what type of portfolio this plugin produces. It is an image portfolio because it is limited to images (with a bit of data about the image). Clicking on a portfolio item displays a larger image, but it doesn't display a separate portfolio item page with more images, a gallery, video, more detailed description, etc. The plugin could be modified so that "Project Link" says something like "Project Details", then link to a separate page on which you would have the project link and everything else.

Error soon after install
By , for WP 3.6

I was excited to find this plugin, for free. As soon as I installed I received several php errors.

Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/awesome-filterable-portfolio/afp.php on line 610 and defined in /public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 992

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php:992) in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/awesome-filterable-portfolio/afp.php on line 611

Upon viewing the portfolio page, it looked nothing like the example and the image is missing, though its on my server.

Very disappointing.

Would be nice...
By , for WP 3.5.1

This looks like it would be great, but after adding an Item or Category via "portfolio items" I am taken to my 404 page. Upon adding "[af-portfolio]" to a page, it simply adds a broken table to the top of the page it was added to.
These are probably simple fixes; however, after two weeks the developer has yet to give any response to inquiry.
