[resolved] Testimonial Category Link (8 posts)

    Hi Michael,

    When I input the testimonials to my site, I created a category for them called, "Testimonial" and I've got categories displayed in my sidebar.

    The problem is when I click on the category link in the sidebar, it goes to:
    http://myfordassociates.com/category/testimonial/

    But, the testimonials are here:
    http://myfordassociates.com/testimonial/

    I'm not sure if I'm misunderstanding what the category is intended for on the testimonial entry screen, or if I'm just doing something wrong.

    Also, I saw the update but I'm nervous about installing it. If I update, will it change anything that I've already customized? I just spent a lot of time getting the "Read More" link to align properly and don't want to go through that nightmare again!

    Thanks for your help.
    Chris

    Chris,

    Regarding updates, given you don't do the customizations in the plugin itself, you're fine.

    For the category listing, see FAQ 52.

    OK Thanks Michael. My only concern now is I don't know where to insert the code from the FAQ. I inserted some code for social sharing buttons the other night and wiped out my site. I had to reinstall the functions.php, so I'm a little gun shy about just pasting code in there.

    This is my functions.php below. Can you tell me where to insert the code from the FAQ?

    Hey I am also facing the similar problem. Whenever I try to add testimonial widget in the footer area, I also get redirected to category/testimonial. Here's my blog link http://blogvkp.com
