Testimonials Widget Premium Doesn’t Work For You?

No problem, it has a 30-day, money back guarantee. Also, you can keep the software, sans support and updates.

General Information

More than one testimonials shortcode or widget instance can be displayed at a time on a page. Additionally, with shortcodes and theme functions, you can display a short or long list or rotation of testimonials anywhere you need.

Through categories and tagging, you can create organizational structures. Using categories for products, projects and services you can then apply tagging for further classification.

As an example, create a Portfolio category and then use tags to identify web, magazine, media, public, enterprise, or other niches. Then configure the Testimonial instance to show only Portfolio testimonials with the public and enterprise tags. In another Testimonial instance, you can also select onlyPortfolio testimonials, but then allow web and media tags.

For easy custom styling, each testimonial widget has its own CSS class identifier.

Widgets display content sans wpautop formatting. This means there’s no forced paragraph breaks unless the content specifically contains them. If needed, you can enable wpautop via the “Keep whitespace?” option.

The single testimonial view supports image, author, title, location, email, company and URL details with optional Review schema.

Shortcode Examples

Shortcode and Widget Options

Please keep in mind that inheritance affects options. This means that changes made to Testimonials > Settings will not affect current widget instance options. You must change the widget instance manually. However, if you create a new widget instance, then the global settings will apply.

Further, global settings are the baseline for shortcodes. If you want to alter the shortcode appearance, then alter the shortcode options directly.

Details on the Shortcode Attributes tab at WordPress Admin > Testimonials > Settings.
