    great plugin!
    few questions after the first look:

    - description max size cannot be changed. after save button is pressed I see "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.", not depending from whether plugin is activated locally or site wide (network);

    - is there some easy way to add custom fields to project creation page. in my case I want drop-down and text box.

    Hello James,

    Thank you for your comment :)

    It's strange for your problem, I do not understand ... I just tested on a new installation (WP 3.3.2 and 1.5.5 BP) and updating the maximum size of the description works well. I have even ask a colleague to test on its own installation and it worked well.
    Maybe another plugin you have installed that created a conflict ?

    However my colleague told me that he could put some text in this field, this will be fixed in next release.

    I had not thought about the custom fields, I also will integrate in a future release. Thank you for the idea James!

    Hi Nicolas,

    thanks for reply. after disabling of all other plugins issue still persist. tested on clean install, same issue. I am not very good in php, but I assume issue is in (1) WP multisite install, or (2) localhost. basically, for me it is not so important, I can add necessary limit directly to the code, it is more for completely inexperienced users.

    is there any chance to get some help in adding custom drop-down field before next release? wanted to launch my site this weekend :)

    Ah, the error is perhaps WP multisite install, I use the localhost so I do not think this is it.

    However I will not be able to make the functionality of custom fields immediately, I'm sorry James, lot of work right now.
    You can take a look at this plugin if you want : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-groups-extras/
    It offers custom fields and the code can be used on bp-portfolio.

    I have the same issue as the OP with the permissions message and I have an extra problem. The portfolio page does not show any portfolio content nor does the portfolio tab show up in the member profile area.

    I am using a multisite install with the multi network plugin and multi BuddyPress plugins. I understand that this is not a standard install, but there are probably other multisite users doing the same thing as me.

    Can you help me out with my two problems anyway? I'm looking forward to trying out your plugin.

    This is such a great and flexible content, but I had nothing but bugs when I activated it. Like the others, I'm running BP on multisite (this is actually pretty common, you might want to ensure compatibility in your roadmap).

    I received the same error when I tried to set the description limit. On the front side, in the profile page, when I navigated to the Portfolio tab it lost compatibility with my theme. All the tab designs disappeared and were replaced with nothing but ordinary text links.

    When I tried to create an item, it failed. It didn't return an error, it just returned to the project entry page.

    You might also consider adding the ability to rename Portfolio and Project to something else. Portfolio and projects are good, generic starting words, but, in my use case, I'd like to rename it Reviews and projects as Tea. Other people might want to call projects Photos, Images, and Portfolio Journal or something else. While I know changing them would be easy in the code, that method isn't very upgrade friendly. You plugin lends itself to a lot of different uses and having a little bit more flexibility for renaming the parts of it would be a tremendous benefit.

    Also, since I was able to save a project, I wasn't able to test this - is this plugin activity stream friendly? Do new projects get recorded and does a filter get added to the dropdown filter?

    Custom fields would be a good addition, but if adding it is duplicating the effort of the BP Groups Extras plugin than perhaps it may be better to just ensure good compatibility between the two for custom fields use instead of coding a new setup just for your plugin.

    I've favorited your plugin cause I want to track its development. It fits a need in my community that I've been thinking about for some time.

    hi kbeatt, Prometheus Fire,

    before complaining any issues/bugs, please test plugin on bp-default. the only issue with this plugin is a limit of description box on multisite install. everything else is a problem of your theme. thanks!

    Hello everyone,

    Right here there is any doubt, the plugin does not work with WP multisite :)

    For now the plugin only works with a standard installation of WordPress and BuddyPress, however I understand very well that the multisite is increasingly used, so I'll look at this problem quickly.

    The ability to rename Portfolio and Project to something else is a good idea and will be incorporated in future releases.

    I thank you for your feedback !

    Hello, very good plugin ...
    It seems that the title does not appear in the browser home page portfolio. What can happen? Thank you.

    this PlugIn is a great idear and I'm looking forward to use it on a live site. One feature would be very interesting: The ability that not just one user has an project. So in a community there are very often people with the same interests. It would be great if you could add collaboration - So the possibility for >1 users to share one project.

    What's do you thing about that?!

    hi guys, does anyone know hot to add single page view to the projects (like it is happening with wp posts, where title leads to a single page)?
