FAQs – Portfolio Posts Pro
Where can I find my license key?
Your license key can be viewed within your account. Once logged in, you’ll see a list of previous purchases and a “View Licenses” link to the right of each purchase. After clicking this link, you’ll see your plugin and an orange key icon next to the plugin name. Click on this icon to reveal the license key for that plugin. Make sure you copy the entire license key.
Why won't my plugin activate?
When activating any plugin with your license key:
- Make sure you have copied the full key from your account.
- Paste the full key in the input box.
- Click the Save Changes button.
- After the page refreshes, click the Activate button.
If you have problems activating, please clear your browser’s cache and follow the above steps again.
Why won't my plugin update?
Check your account and make sure your license is active and has not expired. If your license is active but you are receiving an “unauthorized” error when updating the plugin, please follow the following steps:
- Go the the plugin’s license page
- Deactivate the license
- After the page has refreshed, activate the license again
- Try updating the plugin
Does the plugin work with any custom post type?
Yes, the plugin will work with any custom post type(events, testimonials, products, projects, etc.) and will also work with posts.
My images do not look quite right
The plugin works similar to the default portfolio modules and displays Divi’s 400 x 284 thumbnails. We always recommend uploading 800 x 600 images. This creates an aspect ratio of 1.33. As long as you maintain or get close to this aspect ratio, your images should look fine. If you would prefer to use square or portrait images, you can follow this tutorial.
Some of my pages are taking a long time to load
For most situations, the output created by the plugin’s modules will load just fine. In extreme situations when the module is outputting 100’s of items, you will want to install a caching plugin. We recommend using WP Super Cache, which is developed and maintained by the same group that maintains WordPress. It is very reliable and the least likely caching plugin to cause any conflicts. We do NOT recommend using W3 Total Cache as it is known to conflict with Portfolio Posts Pro.
Can I use the lighbox feature to load a gallery of images?
YES! Earlier versions of Portfolio Posts Pro were limited to opening a single image in a lightbox. Since version 3.4, we’ve added a lightbox gallery option. Turning this option on will open all of the images from the layout into a lightbox image slider. You’ll find this option near the bottom of the Design tab in the module’s settings.
Images do not load with WP Rocket's Lazy Lady feature turned on
The Portfolio Posts Pro plugin is not compatible with the WP Rocket Lazy Load feature. You can follow the instructions in this tutorial to keep this feature enabled for your site but disable it for Portfolio Posts Pro images only.
