    I have the plugin installed here:
    http://www.baldanirowlandandrichardson.com. It's in the footer -- that's the only place so far.

    Only one testimonial shows and only a snippet of that one, even tho I have it set for 100 words.

    I did not set height at all. I tried it but it made no difference.

    What am I doing wrong? Thank you!

    Can you please try installing this version after removing the current and see if you still have the problem?

    I didn't think anyone would answer this late! I figured it out and I do have the latest -- I just installed it.

    I realize that you can only show one testimonial in a widget at a time.

    And it was set for 100 characters, not 100 words. So I set it for 400 characters and I got enough of it to make me happy.

    I just came back on here to see how you put a widget on a page? I'd like to show the rotating testimonials in a page. Can you do that?

    The widget is default to rotation of testimonials.

    What selection criteria do you have set?

    Did you set the limit to 1?

    Shortcodes and there options are at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/testimonials-widget/.

    I set the limit to 14 which is the number of testimonials I have. I will increase that number as I get more testimonials. Or should I just set it to 100 now?

    Also, it shows up in a white box. Can I change that? I'd like to make the type white and no box around it -- the background in the footer is dark brown.

    Thank you! I'm going to search for the style answer in the forum now.

    I see that I have to insert special css style code for the formatting. Shoot.

    At the bottom of the widget there is a line that reads " .testimonials-widget-testimonials2" and underneath that it says "this widgets unique CSS class for styling." I looked in the editor but can't find that. Where is that and can I edit my styling there? Change the background and font?

    @Sally Oh, set the limit to 10. It's better for performance. Your testimonials will all rotate through eventually.

    Add CSS to your theme's style.css file, like the following to change background.

    .testimonials-widget-testimonials2 { background-color: red; }
