Arconix Testimonials


Arconix Testimonials is an easy-to-use plugin that allows you to showcase the great things your customers or users are saying about you or your business.


  • Base stylesheet is responsive and is looks good out of the box with almost any theme, but supports upgrade-safe customizations if a tighter integration is desired.

  • Integrates into the new dashboard design with WordPress 3.8

  • Add testimonials to your site via a widget, shortcode or template tag

  • Displays Gravatars when available

Live Demo


  • Adding a new Testimonial
  • Testimonial list in the Admin
  • Shortcode output with default styling
  • Shortcode metabox on Testimonial creation screen


You can download and install Arconix Testimonials using the built in WordPress plugin installer. If you download the plugin manually, make sure the files are uploaded to /wp-content/plugins/arconix-testimonials/.

Activate Arconix Testimonials in the “Plugins” admin panel using the “Activate” link.


How can I show my testimonials?
  • Place the Arconix – Testimonials widget in the desired widget area
  • Use the shortcode [ac-testimonials] on a post, page or other area
  • Place <?php echo do_shortcode( "[ac-testimonials]" ); ?> in the desired page template
Why is the plugin basically unstyled?

With no 2 themes exactly alike, it’s impossible to style a plugin that seamlessly integrates without issue. That’s why I made the plugin flexible — copy includes/arconix-testimonials.css to the root of your theme’s folder and make your desired modifications. My plugin will automatically load that file instead.
