This is a free contemporary multi-purpose responsive plugin with very easy control and display flow that gives website owners the capability to professionally & elegantly promote & represent their long job achievements in a unified good looking portfolio grid; yet you can use it asa flixable gallary plugin.

First, all you have to do is adding as much portfolio posts as you want in the new dashboard admin menu “Portfolio” along with giving a good looking featured image to each post, so it can be presented inside the portfolio grid as per your desire. Next, try to give appropriate tag names for all of your portfolio items so you can us them for filtering your portfolio items later from (Waving Portfolio) editor plugin.

Also you can add many categories to your portfolio items, and this will enable user to filter your portfolio in the front-end using Category buttons.

So to sum-up, (Waving Portfolio) is using tags to filter Portfolio item list from the backend, and using Categories to enable users to filter portfolio items from front-end.

Finally! After finish adding all of your portfolio items (posts) from (Menu -> Portfolio), you can use the wordpress editor plugin (Waving Portfolio Plugin) to generate a flexible custom portfolio lists.

Extra: Shortocde definition:

For placing your portfolio grid anywhere in your website, just use the following shortcode and you are done:

Template:
[ waving {height="xxx" or width="xxx"} theme="[light|dark]" all="[false|true]" 
    showCat="[true|false]" tag="[string]" clicking="[false|true]" /]
Example: 
[waving width="200" theme="light" all="0" showCat="true" 
    tag="[city-center or City Center or cITY Center]" /]

Notice that if you remove width attribute, and use height, the whole images will be resized based on height instead of width.

Attribute Definitions:

  • height attribute: Is controlling each portfolio item’s height for the whole grid elements, by default it will be set to 250px. Notice that you don’t need to write “px” after numbers. If you set both width and height attributes the width attribute will take-over, so please make sure to remove width attribute if you need your portfolio elements to be sorted based on height.

  • theme attribute: With this you can define your theme to be either light or dark.

  • all attribute: With this attribute you can disable “all” category from showing-up in Portfolio Category menu.

FAQ

If you update to 1.2 from any previous version and lost your portfolio items, here is how to retrieve them

“1.2 NOTICE: Total redesign of the plugin in (v1.2). If you want to upgrade, you have to recreate portfolio items from the scratch in a new simpler way.”

This is been written as update notice.

Quick solution for your migration, is to execute these SQL query:

  1. UPDATE wp_posts SET post_type=’itech_portfolio’ WHERE post_type=’portfolio’;
  2. UPDATE wp_term_taxonomy SET taxonomy=’waving_portfolio_category’ WHERE taxonomy=’portfolio_category’;
  3. UPDATE wp_term_taxonomy SET taxonomy=’waving_portfolio_tag’ WHERE taxonomy=’portfolio_tag’;

And all should be sorted out.

A major enhancement and total redesign for the plugin has been done in version 1.2, note that you have to select your galleries again using the new selection feature for each portfolio item, for a short term changes this might be hectic, but for long term simplicity and manageability it is better to move to 1.2.

Thanks for your migration

How I can create 2 and more portfolios ?

It is a mix of using categories and tags, so if you need to seperate portfolios, just tag portfolio items with different tag names, for instance:

  • Portfolio item#1 -> tag=City
  • Portfolio item#2 -> tag=City
  • Portfolio item#3 -> tag=Countries
  • Portfolio item#4 -> tag=Countries
  • Portfolio item#5 -> tag=Continent
  • Portfolio item#6 -> tag=Continent

Now you can have three different portfolios using the following shortcodes:

  • [waving width=”200″ theme=”light” all=”0″ showCat=”true” tag=”city” /]
  • [waving width=”200″ theme=”light” all=”0″ showCat=”true” tag=”countries” /]
  • [waving width=”200″ theme=”light” all=”0″ showCat=”true” tag=”Continent” /]

And within each tag you can devide the list of portfolio using categories so it will become filterable through categories.

How I can change the theme style ?

There is 2 pre-defined themes that can be used starting from 1.0.3 release, you can either use “dark” or “light” style.

To apply your style just add attribute theme in your shortcode ass follow:

[waving width=”200″ theme=”[light|dark]” /]
example: [waving width=”200″ theme=”light” /]

Notice: By the default the dark theme is enabled.

not see the uploaded images

good evening unfortunately I can not use your plugin Waving Portfolio on my site because I do not see the uploaded images. Could you send me the plugin’s instructions? or if it comes to incompatibility with some other plugins? .Thank greetings, Marcella

Great Portfolio Plugin

This portfolio plugin is easy to install, easy to add items to, uses shortcode that is clear and works beautifully.

Only reason it did not get a 5 star rating.. the theming of the buttons is a bit of a challenge. A bit more flexibility or interface for button, button:hover and button:active would be the cherry on top. Some CSS appears to be inline.

Otherwise.. really enjoying the ease of this FREE plugin and would definitely recommend.

Я понимаю что решение бесплатное, но очень кривая реализация… Попробовал, удалил…

Best free portfolio plugin around

I needed a free plugin to handle a portfolio on a onepage website. I have to admit it was quite of a strangle looking for one that would fit my needs. After trying almost all of the free plugin available, I finally decided to go with Wave Portfolio.

It’s easy to use, it’s simple (it tackles the basic needs for a portfolio without fancy shapes and other useless feature that will just ruin the overall design of your website).

I gave it 4 star because the support forum doesn’t work much (I got an answer to a question after more than one month from the dev) and because I’m sure that there is still space for improvement.

In the future I hope to see a pagination option (to have portfolios split in more slides), a better looking light box and translation features.

Broke my css…

Looked like a nice plugin for showing a small portfolio, but it broke my css on every page.

After deactivation of Waving portfolio I’m back with my old css, and looking for another portfolio-plugin.
