Support » Plugin: Visual Portfolio, Photo Gallery & Posts Grid » view button for each ‘project’/’portfolio’/’our work’ like here

  • Hello,

    I am getting quite desperate googleing around to find a solution and I am even not sure if Visual portfolio is the plugin meeting the requirements for what I would like to achieve.

    BTW Visual portfolio is an absolutely awesome great plugin and I hope that it will get to work!!!

    OK, here is the link to a website, where you can see what I mean.

    please take a look…

    I have different projects and I would like to have a button inserted where by clicking the ‘view button’ a window pops up and I can see ‘more’ images in a slider with a text as you can see on the website of the link.

    I am interested in three ways to view the projects. I would like to try all three of them just to see, which one fits to my website.

    please take a look at:

    1. InstantSnapper iPhone App
    2. Flat Stroke Icons Set
    3. Solo Pine Website

    I hope that somebody can help me and I hope that I explained quite understandable.

    Many thanks in advanced,

  • Ok, that’s one heck of a plugin that the site you linked to is using. I queried the source a bit for plugin-traces, and then called our dear friend Google for help: it’s not Visual Portfolio but (of course) some paid plugin.

    The bad news is: the behaviour that site is showing, is not by default in Visual Portfolio.
    The good news however is: It definitely can be achieved. It will take some time, but is in fact not that hard. I guess you’d at least have to take the following steps:

    • Find a lightbox-plugin to your liking
    • Find some Gutenberg blocks that can help you with styling Portfolio Items as you want them to popup
    • Create a custom Visual Portfolio list-template as per this short tutorial and make sure the links are constructed as requested by the lightbox plugin (if you don’t know PHP: don’t worry, re-use the snippets in the default VP-templates, the rest is plain HTML)
    • Create some Portfolio Items using the blocks from the second bullet
    • Create a Portfolio List that calls the Portfolio Items, using either the Portfolio or Post-based settings (so not Images)

    The only thing you else might need is a special Portfolio Item-template without all the headers and footers and sidebars and such as a normal post-template would have. On that point the WP developer help-section might be able to help you.

    As far as I can see it’s mostly choosing the right helper-plugins and some rather straightforward HTML-coding (with every now and then a bit of PHP).

    Hey @liofer712.

    Currently, it is not possible without custom coding. As @the_alien_01 suggests, you may do this by yourself.

    Most probably, this feature will be a part of Visual Portfolio PRO, that planned to release in April-May.

    Regards, nK.
