[resolved] Testimonials Rotating (another post)...sorry (10 posts)

    Hi,

    I really didn't want to post as there a bunch of threads with this issue. I looked at all of them and tried all the suggestions and yet it still doesn't rotate for me.

    I suspect it has something to do with the fact that I have a custom theme, but I wan wondering if I could get any insight from the community. I apologize if i overlooked something simple, but any step by step help would be appreciated.

    Enclosed below is a link where the quotes should be rotating (ideally in random order), however they appear on every page save the homepage.

    Shaun,

    There's only 1 testimonial. Therefore, no rotation.

    Let me know if that's correct or try resetting your settings and then create a new widget and see if it works or not.

    Michael,
    I did that, and still no rotation.

    I have created 7 testimonials...should I categorize them? They are currently not categorized or labeled

    Am curious to know why you thought I had just 1? I always had 7. The only place i put 1 was that i only wanted 1 to show up at one time.

    Thank you for your quick response

    Also...if you hit refresh on any of the pages, a different quote will appear which is great, I just want it too rotate as well. Thanks again!

    Are you sure you don't have limit=1 set in Testimonials > Settings and Widget options?

    So I'm using this as a widget option, so I do all my settings within the widget (under Appearance).

    The only place that says "limit", I have put "1" because if i put any other number then that many appear on the page all at once. For example if i put 7, all the quotes appear stacked. I just one showing at a time for 5 seconds and then another appears in it's place. The language for the limit option states "Number of testimonials to select per instance" so i only want one at a time.

    I'm a little confused now.

    Ah… your CSS is probably messed up.

    Can you please send me an admin login via http://aihr.us/contact-aihrus/ so that I can look closer?

    Fixed by adding wp_head() and wp_footer() to the header.php and footer.php files.

    Hi Michael,

    I seem to be having the same problem, except that: (1) I only have 2 testimonials which I want shown (with the ability to show as many as 5 or 7), (2) It doesn't matter whether I put 2 or 7, only 1 shows.
