Custom Content Portfolio

A complete portfolio solution for creative people.

Upgrading from pre-1.0.0. What's the deal?

CCP underwent a complete rewrite from the ground up. There's very little about the plugin that's even remotely close to the original version.

The biggest thing to note is that this plugin writes directly to the database to change some post type, taxonomy, and post metadata values. I've tested this extensively, but I still encourage you to make a backup of your database prior to upgrading in case anything goes wrong.

The second biggest thing is that you might need to deactivate and reactivate the plugin if you're missing an admin items under "Portfolio". This should correct any issues.

The third and final item is that you'll want to set your permalinks via "Portfolio > Settings > Permalinks" in the admin.

Why was this plugin created?

I hate when themes authors lock users into using the same theme forever or risk losing all of their content. Many theme developers continue to add portfolios to their themes without thinking about the consequences to their users' data. This plugin is a way to meet those theme authors in the middle. Let users choose their design not based on functionality but based on the merits of the design. Leave the functionality to plugin developers.

How do I use it?

It works just like posts or pages. You'll get a new menu item in the admin called "Portfolio". From there, you can create new projects (sort of like posts/pages).

I'm getting 404 errors. How can I fix this?

You need to save your portfolio permalinks by visiting "Portfolio > Settings" in the admin. There's a section titled "Permalinks" that will allow you to set up your portfolio rewrite rules. After saving, any 404s should disappear.

I don't see the "Portfolio" section.

By default, only administrators can see this menu item. If you are an administrator and can't see it after activating the plugin, deactivate and reactivate the plugin. This should add the required permissions to your administrator role.

How can I allow other users to create portfolio items on my site?

By default, the "administrator" role is the only role allowed to edit portfolio-related things. However, you can install a role management plugin like Members to give more users access to portfolio.

How does this compare with Jetpack portfolios?

While Jetpack can certainly be a useful plugin, its portolio module is not even in the same league. Jetpack offers some of the same basic stuff that you can do with a custom post type, but that's where the similarities end. CCP is a complete portfolio solution.

Will it work with my theme?

The plugin should work fine with any theme that's coded to WordPress standards. However, some features may not appear on the front end without direct integration by your theme author.

How do I add theme support?

If you're a theme author, you can declare theme support with the following code in your theme setup function:

add_theme_support( 'custom-content-portfolio' );

Where can I get support?
