Portfolio Press has been downloaded from WordPress.org over 400,000 times. For the majority of people this basic version works great, but I always a get a few requests from people want more design and customization options. That’s why I’ve built Portfolio+.

More Options

If your site is already running Portfolio Press, switching to Portfolio+ will be easy. And once you’ve activated Portfolio+, you’ll have options to change the text and link colors, hide the site tagline, change the number of portfolio items that appear per page, swap out backgrounds and more. I’ve also added some neat new features, like infinite scroll.

Screenshots of the options panel and customizer:



You can view the theme demo. I also made a video walkthrough highlighting some of the features.

Feature List

  • Color Options for Text
  • Background Styling Options
  • Infinite Scroll
  • Portfolio Category Template
  • Option to use alternate URL for portfolio link
  • Full width option for individual posts
  • Automatic upgrades when new versions come out

Customize Further

You’re also welcome to customize the theme even further by editing the stylesheet. I built a child theme to put those customizations in. Please note, I do not offer support for customizing the actual theme code (PHP/CSS/Javascript).

  1. Great theme, really like it and might upgrade to portfolio+ just to give you real cred :)

    However I would like to do two things that I am not sure if they work.

    1. on a smart device there is no hovering so the text on the post does not show until you click it if you are in a Image and Gallery Post Format. Is there a way to get the titles to show before you hover?

    2. When showing all posts, if all my posts are image posts, then also the post page looks like a Gallery, so I have to “fake” a text post so it shows the texts as well. Is there a way to get around this?

    Thanks // Jonas

      1. Hi Devin,

        Thank you for your reply.

        1. I am not sure what to change in the css? I would also like the text to show on my main page, maybe a little lighter than before hover.

        2. I tried to remove it, but nothing happened?

  2. How can I disable the search, archive and meta widgets to automatically show up in the side bar? I’d like to just install a FB like box and can’t because these items listed in sidebar.php seem to prevent this from working properly. Any ideas?

    Hi, I had a portfolio setup on Portfolio Press where my main (home) page showed a gallery of thumbnails (I followed their video instructions) but then I purchase Portfolio + and the gallery has disappeared from the main page and there is no way (or no help) for me to figure out how to get it back.

    Can you help me, please?

  4. Hi

    I have just bought the Portfolio + theme but cannot access it’s additional features as I cannot see them.

    can you offer any advice please?

    Hey Devin,

    It seems that both Portfolio Press and Portfolio+ (at least in your demo) display only 3 featured images across. Is that fixed or is there an option to change the number of columns or images across?

    Also is there an option in either version to adjust the height of the featured images. It seems that they get cropped if they are vertically oriented.

    Big Thanks,

  6. Hi I’ve been using your theme Portfolio+ for over a year with no problems but recently when trying to add a new portfolio post the featured image option has disappeared. I then checked old posts and even though the featured image shows on the website it doesn’t appear on the portfolio page to edit or change it. I can’t seem to find any reason for this, have you encountered it before or can suggest a fix?

    Thanks Karen

  7. When I am creating Pages for my website, and go to edit a page, the toolbar is missing.

    This is an image of the toolbar that is missing.
    Image of Toolbar —-> http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/ATP_Toolbar.png

    The whole bar is missing, no bold, align, or hyperlinking options are showing when in the visual editor mode.

    In addition, I cannot click in the visual editor mode. It is blank and won’t let me type. I can see the information in html view, however.

    I’m not sure if this is a theme error or a WordPress error.

  8. hi. portfolio plus had worked great for me but with the latest wordpress 4.0.1 I recieved a white screen of death. is it possible to update the portfolio plus (i hadn’t done it in a while) from an ftp?

  9. I am just setting this new blog up; I have it set for “full width” on all portfolio and image posts, yet I am still getting the side bar. Is it possible to get rid of the side bar on the portfolio items?

  10. Hi, the menu does not work on mobile devices? I saw you mentioned it may be a jquery problem but I do not seem to have one. Your theme is great but I need to fix this problem and hoped you could help?

  11. Lovely theme – one quick question: using posts galleried on a front page sets them in the order in which they were published. Is there a way of changing this, like the random assignment you can use within galleries?
