    Hello-

    I have 2 pages of testimonials. Every time when I click on the second page, nothing changes. I still see the testimonials from a page 1. If I manually enter the page url for a page 2 testimonials, I can see testimonials on the second page. How to fix this issue? Thank you

    Serious bummer, that was the easy fix.

    Okay, what plugins do you have running? There's a conflict with one of them.

    Deactivate your plugins one at a time until the paging works and then let me know which plugin caused the trouble.

    Hi. Actually, this is not a conflict issue with one of the plugins. I found the following information about WPPageNavi. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-pagenavi/faq/

    "When I go to page 2, I see the same posts as on page 1!

    You're using query_posts() wrong. See The Right Way To use query_posts()"

    This is my situation. However, where can I change query_posts per the "Right Way"? Should I change a certain file? I will appreciate if you can explain it to me in simple terms. I have 3 pages of testimonials and people see only the first page.

    Thanks a lot.

    Testimonials Widget plugin does not use query_posts.

    Did you try out my plugin on-off suggestion?

    Hi. On-off suggestion doesn't work. Where do people usually change query_posts? Which file?

    If people have several pages of testimonials, then they need to install wp-pagenavi to navigate all pages of testimonials. Is it correct?

    Does your them use query_posts?

    Testimonials Widget has it's own built-in paging system. However, if WP Navi is installed it'll default to that instead.

    Hi. If Testimonials has its own paging system, why do you have a Q40 indicating that WP-PageNavi must be installed? Please find below. I am confused. Thanks.

    40. How do I get page numbers for pagination?

    Install and activate WP-PageNavi to get page numbers for pagination of testimonials via the shortcode [testimonialswidget_list].

    Additionally, you can use filter testimonials_widget_wp_pagenavi to configure WP-PageNavi specifically for Testimonial Widgets. Read WP-PageNavi's core.php wp_pagenavi function declaration for available options.

    Please read the question for FAQ 40 again… It says page numbers.

    Please review the screenshots of testimonials widget listings. You'll see arrows used for paging in them.

    Hello Users of this plugin! I would like to see Page numbers as WP-PageNavi offers. Does anybody on this website use WP-PageNavi? If so, my issue is that I see the same posts when I click on page 2. How did you resolve this issue? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Does paging without WP-PageNavi plugin work for you?

    Also, have you tried using another theme to test that Testimonials Widget and WP-PageNavi work together for you?

    My testing shows they do fine together. So if it's not a plugin issue, then that leaves theme.

    Since this isn't a testimonials widget issue, I'm resolving the ticket.

    Should I add a code per Q38 to create paging without WP-PageNavi? If so, where should I put it in the fuctions.php file? In the beginning, in the middle or in the end? I put it in the end and it broke my site. I am not a code guru;-( Thank you

    You don't need to do anything special to enable paging for testimonials widget. Use a simple [testimonialswidget_list] shortcode on a page and you should be fine.

    Hi- I deactivated WPPageNavi and put a simple shortcode but I don't see any paging. Please check the website again to see the result. What should I do?

    I see the code where the should be coming in, but there's nothing there.

    Can you please test the shortcode in a post and send me the link?

    Where should I put the code?

    I put the code [testimonialswidget_list] on Testimonials Post because I want to see a list of testimonials and then move to the next page of testimonials.

    If you check the Tesimonials page/post, you see a list of testimonials because I put the above shortcode there.

    Thanks

    For debugging purposes, please test the shortcode [testimonialswidget_list] in a new post and send me the link to that post.

    Hi. What kind of difference will it make?

    Testimonials Page is a Post. So you see the result of this code on a page Testimonials. I just copied and pasted the above code on this page/post. It looks like it might be an issue with the plugin and doesn't support paging.

    Where should I put the code to make it work? Or, your free version doesn't support Paging?

    The free plugin supports paging.

    I didn't realize that http://www.artiopartners.com/us-expat-tax-cpa/testimonials/ is a post. I didn't look closely enough. Seemed a page to me. My apologies.

    At this point, I'm suspecting there's a conflict with your theme.

    Can you do a quick theme swap to TwentyTwelve or the like to see if paging shows up?

    Sorry but I cannot do any swap because I work with clients from all parts of the world. Misrepresenting my site is not an option.

    Paging works if I add WPPage-Navi but I cannot move to the next page. You plugin should support any theme too. Does your paging function work with your theme?

    Also, in which file do people usually change query_posts?

    I feel frustration on behalf of us both. Remote debugging is a pain and considering that some 100,000 other installations seem to be working fine, the problem is probably on your site via conflict of some form.

    Can you create a copy of the site so that we can work with it without disturbing clients?

    Regarding query_posts, it's probably someplace in your theme. I do my best to ensure theme conflicts on testimonials widget plugin side are quickly fixed. However, it's up to the site owners to help me find them.

    Please remember, you're getting paid by clients to support them. I don't think they or you are paying me. Therefore please be kinder in your responses.

    Hi Michael,

    I have two queries:

    (1) I have about 9 pages (each page contains 8 testimonails) and it is still growing. The default page navigation shows a small sign for next and previous page. Is it possible to make the page numbers appear in each page so that if any desires he can direct access a certain page no and thus avoid going through the lengthy process of next and previous.

    (2) This does not pertain to page navigation. I find the plugin can be used for only one instance. Can it be used for more than one instance?

    Look forward to your valuable advice.

    @nnagarajan7,

    1. Sure thing, try WPPageNavi, http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-pagenavi/.

    2. You can do multiple instances. I'm suspecting that you want to show multiple sections of widgets, but they're rotating through the same set. If so, use tags or categories to select different.

    Alternately, buy Testimonials Widget Premium, http://aihr.us/wordpress/testimonials-widget-premium/, and use the unique option.

    Do you mean WP Pagenavi will work in tandem with Testimonials Widget.

    By multiple instances I mean two separate testimonal pages. Each will show different set to testimonials. For e.g. I want to use your plugin for two purposes. One for showing the list of issues solved by me and another the testimonials received.

    Yup to all. Just use categories and therefore the category option split issues and testimonials.

    Hi. I don't mind paying for your premium package if it worked in my situation. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with my theme. I cannot change the thyme and I cannot create a copy of my website. I appreciate your time.
