I needed a free plugin to handle a portfolio on a onepage website. I have to admit it was quite of a strangle looking for one that would fit my needs. After trying almost all of the free plugin available, I finally decided to go with Wave Portfolio.
It's easy to use, it's simple (it tackles the basic needs for a portfolio without fancy shapes and other useless feature that will just ruin the overall design of your website).
I gave it 4 star because the support forum doesn't work much (I got an answer to a question after more than one month from the dev) and because I'm sure that there is still space for improvement.
In the future I hope to see a pagination option (to have portfolios split in more slides), a better looking light box and translation features.
Looked like a nice plugin for showing a small portfolio, but it broke my css on every page.
After deactivation of Waving portfolio I'm back with my old css, and looking for another portfolio-plugin.
It has a lot of bugs so I don't recommend using it. Version 1.2.4 but more like 0.7. Developer shouldn't launch before finishing and should at least make that clear: THIS IS IN DEVELOPMENT
The plugin is really simple to use. I set up a portfolio in a very short while. However I wish we could have better options rather than buttons to sort the categories. Also it would be better if the pictures in the grid could be done in a thumbnail. I tried setting both height and width but it only adjusts the width. So since my featured images are of different sizes my grid looks a bit funny.
I love this Portfolio Plugin. It is quite bare bones but you can customize it a lot with a little css.
There are some parts that I wish where a bit more customizable, but out of all similar plugins I tried this gave me by far the results that I am most happy with.
Why can't you write decent documentation - Explain how it works rather than just leaving everything to guess work. This is annoying, the actual portfolio doesnt look that good - if you ever figure it out, and useless documentation. Harsh I know but this just wastes people's time. P.S. 5 Star reviews of this make me wonder about the credibility of those writing them
For a free plugin of this, this is awesome
Everyone should give it a try, and aelbuni (author) is very helpful.
even with some issues, i think this plugin is getting better and better each update, thanks
Very Easy to Use.. little styling needed.
once you update the plugin you lose all the porfolios you created. waste of time
the new update makes it better.easy to play with the css and good and easy shortcode
