You only get one chance to make a first impression, this extension supports just that! It looks nice at the front-end, easy to configure at the back-end, lots of options to suit your needs and last but not least, great support! Found a bug and within a working day there was a fix.

Installing and setting up the module was easy, but I bumped into some problems creating portfolios: some pages did not display at all and some plugins were not initialized. After contact with the friendly and skilled support all was quickly fixed and even some feature requests I had were quickly implemented. So the extension may contain some bugs, but support is very good and when you have problems with the extension it will be quickly resolved.

I had a little trouble setting this up initially, however the support was amazing and helped me out. I would recommend this component to anyone looking for the best portfolio out there!

I bought this extension and wasn't expecting much, due it it being a bit of an unknown extension.

In short, I've been hugely impressed by it! Everything just 'works', the bundled themes look great and are easy to restyle... Hard to fault it really.

If I could find any criticism it would be that it would be nice to be able to choose different sized images / crop rules on a per-portfolio basis. That's not a deal breaker though and a pretty minor point in the grand scheme of things...

So, anyway, thanks!

I rarely rate or even write reviews. I bought this ext but had a few a issues setting it up. Bowthemes made sure I got it up and running with their excellent support. This is not only one of the best designed portfolios but it has excellent support to back it up. Thanks Bowthemes

It's not often I get an extension that is straight forward, easy to setup and I can have it up and running in a matter of a short time without the need to wade through a ton of documentation or looking for documentation that does not do enough. This extension has great support and easy to follow documentation (not that you will need it). Not only that but the results are professional and look fantastic!

The component is average, there are a few things that do not function, one is "single Portfolio"

2. No way to add a portfolio to a single article either K2 or Joomla standard.

3. No documentation, but the control panel seem straight forward enough to get by

BT_Portfolio, it really should have had a trial period first while they get more bugs fixed.

Right now the best I can give is 2 stars, lets hope they address these critical problems in a timely manner.

Looking for a solution to list on a nice way our courses for the fire department, i noticed BT Portfolio. In the demo, it looked clean and very professional. And at first it seemed very easy to setup. Onfortunately the component isn't versatile and the level of support is very poor. I purchased the component, but it is still full of bugs. Now the developer released a new version - but i can't upgrade and the developer fails to send a notification of upgrade. If you are looking for a quick way to show - it is a great solution. For the level of versatility it is way too expensive. It was worth a try for $30,- . Because the lack of support on the forum or email now i am looking further for a more versatile component. I will think twice for buying again from this developer. Too bad - because it looks promising.

I am developing my own site which is specialized in printing artworks. While searching for an eye-catching but flexible module for my Portfolio page, I was introduced to this extension by chance. At first, I doubt whether it fits my demand in terms of backend management and image auto-resizing feature. When I came to integrate that extension into my site, I found like it is tailored for me. I will keep an eye on the team for other extensions they are providing. Thanks for great work.
