Can't even activate it.
By , for WP 3.8

Plugin "Testimonials by Aihrus" has been deactivated as it requires PHP 5.3.0 or newer. You're running PHP 5.2.17. Once corrected, "Testimonials by Aihrus" can be activated.

I have everything that i can update updated, so in order to use this i either have to wait for my hosting company to update the PHP they use or switch hosting companies.

Dedicated author and excellent testimonials plugin
By , for WP 3.8

This plugin is a versatile and highly effective way to present your testimonials. Of equal importance is the developer, who is 100% committed to his plugin and users. I've seen this dedication manifest itself through tireless support over the past few months during the sometimes painful transition of the plugin's compatibility with websites using PHP 5.3 or above only. Michael has stuck with plugin users, even when their frustrations have boiled over, and this for users of the free version as well as those using the premium plugin. It's great to see someone so passionate about their craft, and so for this, and his excellent plugin, he gets a comfortable 5 star recommendation.

Classy plugin, classy author
By , for WP 3.8

I don't know the author but I have read his blog and every one of his relentless support posts over the past 3 months and he is, without doubt, a talented, classy, eloquent, communicative and conscientious man whose only failing may be a touch of OCD. I feel compelled to support him and will buy the pro version or donate.

As for his plugin, I have looked at every other testimonials plugin that was ever conceived and this, to my eye, is easily the most elegant, most customisable, most design-conscious, most flexible and most professional of the whole universe.

Do check your PHP version number though as 5.3 and above seems to be required for the latest update of this plugin. An earlier version of this plugin should be downloaded if your web server is running an older version of PHP.

Five stars from me - for all kinds of reasons. Bravo.

Worked like promised!

The plugin is very useful for wiriting testimonials and quoting media. Worked beautifully and is customizable too. I have already reported about the bug for customizing maximun redirects. Once that is fixed, it is a useful plugin and a must have.

Latest update crashed site
By , for WP 3.7.1

Site crashed with Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STATIC, expecting ')' in /home3/reatatec/public_html/wp-content/plugins/testimonials-widget/lib/aihrus/class-aihrus-common.php on line 44 after applying update. As a non-programmer it was a considerable effort to get site back up again. Doesn't anyone test this stuff? Removed this plugin for good as soon as site started functioning again!

It is very easy to work with. It has so far been the best free testimonial plugin.

The Author of the plugin was very very helpful when I needed assistance.

Tips to those with issues that I had.

1.) If it simply isn't working 100% properly, be sure that

<?php wp_head(); ?>

is in the header.php file right before the </head> tag

and also that

<?php wp_footer(); ?>

is in the footer right after the </body> tag.

2.) If you are trying to list your testimonials on a page and you wish to change the width, do the following:

.testimonials-widget-testimonial.list {
    width: 100%;

(of course change the width to whatever you want in pixels or percent).

It's a great widget!
