B2 Portfolio Component

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
We are going to create some nice effects for a portfolio or similar website with jQuery. We will create a tiny slider and integrate it with the amazing Cloud Zoom plugin and the elegant Fancybox plugin.

The idea is to give the user the option to view details of a portfolio item by zooming it on hover, and to allow a full view by clicking. Moreover, we want to have a couple of images for each item, hence we will create a slider.

When integrating jQuery scripts, it sometimes happens that there are conflicts, be it because of some shared attribute or because of some specific structure that is needed by each jQuery plugin. In this tutorial we will bump into some of these conflicts and we will adapt some lines of code in order to bypass them.

-> Make your Portfolio with Smart lookup and Divisions with Category.

The B2 Portfolio did exactly what i needed for my current project. Easy to install, and easy to use from backend. I contacted the support, and they fixed the small problems i had the same day. Thumbs up for that.

I found the product thanks to which I could clearly present my graphic designs. B2 Portfolio is characterized by easy operation and a very interesting final result. The big advantage is the fast technical producer support.

The styling is great.
easy to add websites to portfolio.
Current version is missing a few features like an easy way to link to component via menu manager.
After contacting support i was impressed by the speed the issue was solved.
3 mins flat !!
Link to an external url and hey presto it burst into life.
So 5 stars for support.

I was looking for a product that displayed my portfolio material in a good way and this product did exactly that. At the time it wasn't developed for Joomla 1.7, but the support team was more than helpful in getting back to me with emails and issues.

It's a very good start. I'm using the component with Joomla 1.7.1 and it operates as expected.

Simple to use!

I had a minor glitch with my database setup and was immediately given some of the best support I've experienced in the Joomla community - EXCELLENT!

I agree with a previous review - some menu options for linking to categories (or even the main component) are needed. Currently it appears (I could be wrong) that the only way to create a menu link is to create an "external link" to the component. This can also be done for any categories created. Change your category name and you have to go back and manually change the menu link - a bit "kludgy". Once the menu portion gets added my rating would go to "Excellent - 5 stars".

The other additional features the developer intends to add sound great! - looking forward to them.

Would also like to see the ability to turn off the category section. Would be nice to link directly to a category and have the choice to not display category list.

Good component, just what I needed for my website. Agree with suggestions below (especially link direct from menu) but have to praise the developers for their very fast and effective support! Personally I would think being able to add one link into multiple categories would be a cool future feature. Otherwise: very good and looks good!

B2 Portfolio is a good little component so far and works well in its current stage but would benefit from a few additions to make it excellent. The 2 most notable improvements would be:

- New items to be published first
- Ability to sort items manually in the backend.

The component would also benefit from
- the ability to be able to link directly to a category from the menu manager
- the ability to publish/unpublish the category selection at the top.

With these few additions B2 Portfolio would become a very good component suitable for a wide range of use.
