    I have the testimonials in a sidebar. However the width of the testimonials is too narrow. I would like to make it wider to better fit the available space but I don't see where to do that.

    What's your URL with the width issue?

    Adjusting width is something of your theme than the plugin.

    I would suggest right-clicking on the widget and selecting Inspect Element and playing with the CSS options to obtain your desired width. Then put that CSS change into your theme's style.css file.

    Hello - I am having this problem as well. My site is:
    http://www.imagesbyadrian.com
    The Testimonials widget is at the left sidebar on the bottom. It is coming out as one very long thin line of text. I am using the Atahualpa theme. The left sidebar width is 175 pixels.

    Tried that - didn't work. I removed the widget from the sidebar and put in the shortcode on the About page and that seems to work fine.

    @PrettyBiddy, I know from my quick debugging, your theme is what was causing the issue in regards to the blockquote and wrappers. You might try putting the widget back and debugging yourself via right-click, Inspect Element.

    Hi.
    I'm also having issues with the width of the text within the widget, can you advise how I can adjust the width of the text block so it's not so thin? In the previous version (a few ago) I didn't seem to have the problem. Widget is on every page, right hand side, website is danburtdecorating.co.uk
    Thanks

    I tried the 'Deactivate .hentry option under Compatibility & Reset' but nothing changed. I haven't tried the 'inspect element' part yet, I am not very confident about what to change for it but that is my next step if you feel that is the only way to amend it.

    What's the URL of the trouble?

    URL is http://www.danburtdecorating.co.uk

    Widget is on every page of the site, upper right hand side of page. I looked at changing the width of the Testimonials area within the coding last night but could only see the height pixels so I'm stumped.

    Line 381 of http://danburtdecorating.co.uk/wp/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/style.css gives blockquote wide left and right margins. That squeezes the text down.

    Try something like .testimonials-widget-testimonial blockquote { margin-left: 0; margin-right: 0; } to fix in your theme's CSS files.
