Love the End Result

This plugin was not completely compatible with my Elision ( Qode / Visual Composer ) Theme, but Golam responded to me via Skype in a couple hours and spent a generous amount of time creating custom CSS and get it working exactly how I wanted it. It’s definitely worth the upgrade to Pro. I’m happy with the result. Thanks Golam!

Transition speed

Transition speed is insane, and u can’t change it in free version. It’s the worst plugin i’ve ever saw, no joke…

Completely useless

Doesn’t work, can’t even break up sentences properly, none of the styles work, all create a box with lines in. No way to hide image of reviewer even when there isn’t one. Disappointing.

excellent plug-in and even better support

I had a quick question about some weird glitch that my theme was creating and I couldn’t figure out where the problem was coming from. Golam answered my question quickly and when I had one more tiny thing to fix – he live-chat helped me on the spot. I’m definitely going to be using more of the GS plug-ins.

Very good support

I’m giving five stars for the support. I had some teething problems installing this and Samdani was very quick to respond and very helpful and reassuring.

I’m not techy at all and so still having some problems getting the plugin to display the testimonials in the way i wanted but thanks to Samdani it is working and I have some testimonials now on my site, which is great. Thanks for taking the time to help me, it’s greatly appreciated.

The best Testimonial Pro plugin

I must say Samdani is very quick with response for supporting he’s plugins, also very good and friendly to deal with, I needed a couple of things changed and he helped me straight away. I would recommend he’s plugins to everyone, and I would recommend Samdani as an awesome developer to anyone and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy more plugins from this Samdani when I need them.
The best Testimonial Pro plugin for $15 anywhere.
