    Because what I am displaying are not exactly porfolios but some services, I would like to change and personalize the name on the permanent link http://domainname/otw-portfolio/pagename

    I'll changed the filterable permanent link, in php files, but I'm not sure how to change on the pages permanent link. What camps in which files do I have to change it?

    I would appreciate some help.

    Thank you.

    We do not have such option in the plugin. By default the plugin will use the custom post type name.

    You can try this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-type-permalinks/ although it has not been tested.

    This is something I'd like to do as well. The custom post type permalinks plugin does not work to change the "otw-portfolio" in the URL. The plugin only allows you to change the slug AFTER otw-portfolio. So your URL still looks like mysite.com/otw-portfolio/CUSTOMIZABLE-SLUG. Which is redundant because you can already change that slug in the portfolio options.

    The theme demo of your theme Carbon that uses the portfolio plugin does not have the "otw-portfolio" in the URL. As seen in this URL:


    Then again when clicking on an actual portfolio item:

    I've tried changing some stuff in the php files to change the custom post name but it doesn't work properly.

    I would really like to use this plugin but unless I can change the otw-portfolio in the URL I won't be using it. Could you not provide the customized files similar or the same as the ones in your demo? Or explain which files need to be edited...there are a lot of otw-portfolio instances in the few php files with the plugin.

    I agree with you Brian.
    Can you provide how to customize this otw-portfolio in php files. The plugin doesn't work.
    Thank you!

    just open the file wp_content/plugins/otw-portfolio/otw-portfolio-light.php, find the line 56 and change it from

    'rewrite' => true,


    'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'portfolio','with_front' => false),

    save the file, goes to settings > permalinks and click save button to flush url rewrite rules. Now goes to the single project page again, the url now is “http://www.lowerthanwater.com/portfolio/bouf/”, perfectly solved!

    nice one, bob - if your hack works, then this plugin might just be what I'm after ...

    The solution above works beautifully. Be sure to save your permalink settings afterward, the URL will show as you wish it to.
