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