OTW Portfolio Light

OTW Portfolio Light is a free plugin for WordPress that adds responsive portfolio functionality to your site. You can create categorized portfolio items. OTW Portfolio Light has a very nice 3 column template to show your portfolio in a page or portfolio category. Super coll animated filter option or pagination is available too.



Portfolio options

The portfolio items have the following options: title, content, testimonial, client website, featured image for archives and portfolio images for the single portfolio item page displayed in a slider.


Portfolio Templates

The plugin has two templates:

  • Portfolio Filterable – this template will display all your portfolio items. It will add a filter on top of it that will let your users choose items by portfolio category. It will change category listing with a cool animation.
  • Portfolio Paginated – this will display all portfolio items and it will add pagination bellow. The number of items per page can be set up in Settings -> Reading -> Blog pages show at most. Note that this setting is also valid for all blog archives and the Blog 1 column page template.

Both templates can be called in a Page by using their shortcodes.

The plugin will automatically create category archive templates for each of your categories with their own links.



  • [otw_portfolio] – This will generate Portfolio Paginated template listing portfolio items
  • [otw_portfolio otw_filterable] – This will generate Portfolio Filterable template listing portfolio items with a nicely animated filter on top

Copy and past the shortcodes in a new page to get a page displaying your portfolio items.


Portfolio Settings

In the portfolio settings page you can change the default image sizes for single portfolio items, portfolio templates and archives. You can also set the width for your content.


Templates modification

If you need to modify the template files you can do that and still be able to update the plugin without doing the modifications again. To do that copy the template you’d like to modify form the /templates/ folder of the plugn and past it in your theme’s folder. Do the modifications there.
