Testimonials by WooThemes
CSS breaks on pages (5 posts)

    I'm using the testimonials plugin on the Superstore theme and am having an issue with placing the testimonials on pages.

    When I have the testimonials placed on the homepage, everything looks fine. When I add them to a page using the shortcode, or any kind of way, however, the css seems to be disappeared and the testimonials have lost their styling. I can't figure out what could be interfering here and the testimonials are not responding to any custom css I'm trying to add either.

    Can you make a dummy page using the shortcode so we can see what's going on? If it's a matter of CSS, then chances are it's a theme or plugin conflict.

    Hiya Chris, thanks for your prompt response. This is the dummy page:

    http://www.workyourart.com/testimonial-test/

    That page contains nothing else but a [woothemes_testimonials limit="3" size="50"] shortcode to test it out. I'm sure it's a css issue, but disabling my plugins one by one didn't make a difference so my guess is that some other css in my theme is interfering with the testimonial plugin css (especially since on the frontpage, the quotes show up nicely next to each other with the theme markup as it should be, and on a page, they suddenly lost all their markup).

    Well after tinkering around with this for awhile, it definitely seems to be a css issue. I wasn't able to find out exactly what's causing the layout problems with the testimonial-test page. However, I'm led to believe it has something to with the template that's being used for that page. Are you using the "Full Width" template? How are the testimonials being applied to the homepage? Are you using the shortcodes, or are you using the <?php do_action(); ?> code supplied by the plugin author?

    Thanks for taking some time to look at it. I did try switching page templates, but all page templates show the broken css, even the default one. The testimonials on the homepage are applied using a widget in the sidebar generated by the theme to be used as a frontpage widget area. I actually tried to see if I could get the testimonials to work on pages with the 'widgets on pages' plugin as a quick workaround (as I thought perhaps the widgets css helped formatting the testimonials), but that didn't do the trick. I'm still sniffing around in the css what could be causing the problem. I also fully disabled the custom.css file, in which I add all my custom css, but the problem still remains. Hmm.
