Thank you very much for the detailed reply,
I will install the plugins you have on a fresh install and test it out.
The plugin is installed from a local version included in the theme files at circleflip/plugins/plugins/circleflip-portfolio.zip
Please try this out for me,
Access your server via ftp and change the name of the plugin at wp-content/plugins/
and just to be sure, please mention the Version of CF you’re using
