Getting 404 error for portfolio Item details page?

This can happen because of WordPress permalinks. Try going to WordPress Settings->PermaLink Settings and Save the permalink settings again. No need to change anything. This should solve the issue.

What are the Showcases and how to use portfolio Showcase on my page?

The showcase feature is meant to work as small Portfolio of your featured works that you can embed on your homepage or other landing pages. You can assign some of your special works or Portfolio items to a specific category like “Featured” (you need to create that category) and then use the showcase shortcode to show only those special works. Use the Shortcode Generator button found in your WordPress page’s Visual Editor to easily generate the shortcode you need. The showcase templates are different than your normal Portfolio templates and are specially designed to show 10-15 featured items easily with the best outlook to represent your works.

I have been using the free version, how do I upgrade to pro version?

1st, you need to deactivate and delete the free version. Then install and activate the pro version and you are ready to go!

Reviews

The best customer service I’ve experienced since Apple

I just want to say Portfolio X Pro has been a game changer for my website! I am not a coder and I have only been using WordPress for about a year so I had some dificulty at start. So I emailed support and they got right back to me. Then we went back and forth with questions I had and they sent me the custom CSS code I needed to fix my issues. These guys go above and beyond! I would recommend this product to anyone making a portfolio site.

Great Plug In with Speedy Support

This plug in is super user friendly. The support is very quick – they even sent me custom code to change the colour of a few things! I looked through several portfolio plug ins before choosing this one. It’s perfect for my needs.

Great plugin!

Been look’n for a “gallery” / “portfolio” style plugin for some time, there are a ton of them .. some worked, either didn’t like the visuals and they clashed with my install (didn’t play nicely with others 😉 ).

Then I found Portfolio X, not through the WP repository but via GG search, bought it (very reasonable!), installed it, and works like a charm. Really love the simplicity and setup. Lot’s of templates to choose from (I chose #1).

Could improve the help section – didn’t understand how “showcase” works but hit up their support desk and they responded immediately. Thanks guys – keep up the awesome work!!
