For developers, we also include many filters, which allow you to completely customize the HTML of your testimonials. You can even use your own custom testimonial template. We also provide a custom CSS box for multiple screen sizes, so you can customize phones, tablets, and desktop screen sizes separately.

And if you upgrade to Pro, you’ll unlock even more style options and themes, letting you choose fonts (including Google webfonts), colors, styles, sizes, and more!

Add Images To Your Testimonials To Stand Out

You’ll be able to add an image to your Testimonials, which can greatly increase the impact of your Testimonials.

Reviews

Great Plugin

Have this plugin installed on our sites updates are stable so far. Great Job!

Finally, one that has what I need

I downloaded several plugins and quickly deleted them when they didn’t meet my needs (mostly, the ability to heavily customize). This one, I’m keeping. Thank you!!

‘Bait and Switch’ much?

I’ve added many apps and this app is anything but ‘Easy’. More like ‘bait and switch’! You can’t put up a widget to create a form that your viewers can use to post a review unless you PAY (upgrade to ‘pro’) first…before you even know if the plugin will work for you. If you wanted money up-front, why didn’t you just say so at the beginning so people don’t have to waste their time going through all this. We won’t be ‘upgrade to pro’ unless we know how the plugin works first. Rubbish plugin!!!!

All round first class plugin and developer

I’ve been using this plugin for a while now. It is very c=versatile and does a great job. In the first week I had a problem with CSS and the technical support was prompt and effective. Since then I’ve suggested an enhancement and lo and behold it’s there! Well done.
