DZS ZoomFolio is the ultimate plugin for displaying your creative portfolio to your clients and that’s not all. You can use it to show the recent posts from your blog or a gallery from your vacation. The possibilities are endless.
The backend helps you do just that in a easy way. Uses the WordPress’s Custom Post Types for you to create Portfolio items in the WordPress intuitive way. It’s based on shortcodes, but there is zero effort to understand how you customize it because there is a intuitive Shortcode Generator bundled that does just that for you.
- ZoomFolio WordPress plugin – get creative!
- documentation – extensive documentation on how to install & configure the plugin
- free updates – even if the value of this gallery increases with upcoming updates, you will get them for free
- free support – for installation via the support board -> http://digitalzoomstudio.net/support/ this is the fastest form of support
So you’ll find in the package everything you need. Also, the Documentation in html which is good – wide support and easy search. As a personal notice, I also bought this plugin and used it in some of my work, and I can say it totally worth it.
The support is done in a separate forum. ZoomIt has a well organized and friendly-user support forum (img 1.1). In order to register you’ll have to apply for membership on the forum and complete the fields. The interesting thing that I liked about the registration part is one particular field that refers to the purchase code for the bought product, so if you’re not a customer you can’t reply on the forum (img 1.2).
We’ve done a little research on how the support issues get resolved and how the forum is organized.
The support site is a Vanilla Forums install. It has a friendly-user interface and once you’re logged in you can see your discussions or your bookmarks. Also, the feature that I liked the most on the forum is that it has a left-siderbar with the products categories which we’ll help you navigate easier and have a clearer view about the topics on the forum (img 1.3).
We checked some support response time at random and it is good too. Nothing over 48 hours. ZoomIt has hired support staff and answers are precise (img 1.4).
For updating, disable and delete the previous version, and install the new downloaded one. Or (recommended ) just unpack the zip you get from the download and overwrite the previous folder from wp-content/plugins/ via ftp.
