IvyCat AJAX Testimonials

Easily add rotating or static testimonials to your website. Testimonials can be categorized and rotated dynamically via AJAX or on page load.

Where are the instructions?

Check the plugin's Installation tab.

In an upcoming version, we'll include a page within the WordPress Admin containing a shortcode cheat sheet.

Why are the styles for the testimonials different than the other content on the page or widgets in my sidebar.

This plugin depends upon your theme's styles and does not contain native styles.

The testimonials on my site aren't matching my theme - how do I change your styles?

We don't have any built-in styles, so it's not uncommon for things to look a bit awkward in some themes, depending on the theme's CSS. Usually, with some quick poking around, you can change markup, CSS or both so the testimonials will display exactly as you'd like. Screencast coming soon . . .

We recommend using a tool like Firebug or Google Chrome DevTools to identify what styles are used in your site so you can modify the output template or your stylesheet to fit.

Styling Testimonials Embedded Using Shortcodes?

If you're using a shortcode to display testimonials in a list, rather than individually, you can customize the testimonials-loop-template.php file to suit your site.

Styling Testimonials Embedded Using Widgets?

You may need to a tool like Firebug or Google Chrome DevTools to inspect the markup and CSS in your theme and adjust as needed accordingly.

What if I don't know CSS?

You might be okay, but if you need style tweaks, you can either:

  • Find a friend with some CSS chops that can help out. Or,
  • Post your questions in this plugin's support forum and we'll try to help out when we get time.

Hey guys, why don't you add a feature that _________?

This is a minimal plugin that prefers function over form. When you have ideas for new features, please post them in this plugin's support forum and we'll respond ASAP.

Since this plugin is released at no charge and was originally created to scratch our own itch, we consider all feature requests closely to see if they will save us time and money. If so, we'll usually implement the feature as soon as it makes sense.

If you request a feature that we don't need, but think is really cool, we might add it to the roadmap.

If you've got an idea for a feature that we wouldn't use, we'll look at creating a hook or filter so you can tie in and implement it yourself. Or, you can fork our GitHub repository, create a patch, and submit a pull request.

How Can I Help Out?

If you're a developer, we'd love your help reviewing code, submitting bug reports or patches, testing, and participating over in the GitHub repository.

If you're not a developer, but you can follow instructions and take notes, we'd love to have your help beta testing new releases. If you're interested in beta testing, please let us know by posting in the plugin's support forum.


I have 25 testimonials in the system, so why are only 10 are showing per page?

This plugin respects the Blog pages show at most x posts setting in WordPress under Admin > Settings > Reading.

Of course, you can change this setting in the WordPress Admin, but that will likely affect all posts on your site; not just testimonials. A better way to control number of testimonials shown in a list is to modify your shortcode to add quantity='x' like so:

  • [ic_do_testimonials display='list' quantity='7'] - shows 7 posts per page
  • [ic_do_testimonials display='list' quantity='-1'] - shows all posts
