Worse plugin i ever see! it was nearly broken my site. Too many HTML error, lightbox functionality broken.

Just BEWARE about this plugin before use it.

Things that just don't work?
By , for WP 3.9.1

When ever I want to upload an image it does not save the tumbnail state. I get the fullsize image in my portfolio.

Also I would like an option to choose where you can put the discription and add custom fields.

Im working on a design for a company that does projects (events) They would like to have a custom field where they can put in the number of visitors an event has had that they organized.

Simply the best!

Simple and easy to use.

I only mis one thing in this plugin and that is an limiter option for displaying how much items.

Would be awesome to have something like this.

[af-portfolio items="6"]

Thanks

Simple and Nice but with one bug
By , for WP 1.7.8

Hi,

I like this plugin. This is very simple and nice gallery portfolio plugin. It works nice on showing all images but when you click on category link. its image effects and pop-box stop working.

This plugin will be awesome if you fix this issue.

Thanks and kind regards

Works well and looks nice
By , for WP 3.8.1

After trying several portfolio plugins which either conflicted with another essential plugin, or just lacked some important functionality, I found this plugin. It works flawlessly except for one small problem, which can be explained here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/jquery-breaking-after-filtering?replies=6#post-5266602. Hopefully there's a fix coming soon for this issue, but other than that it works and looks great, and is easy to configure and implement.

Error on activation and limitations
By , for WP 3.8.1

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.'

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

3. 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.
