Strong Testimonials

A full-featured testimonials plugin that works right out of the box for beginners and offers advanced features for pros, all backed by strong support.

All the features you need to quickly add and customize testimonials on your site.

See demos of various templates, slideshows, and forms here.

Is this the right plugin for you?

It's important to understand this plugin's intended use case: A small business with up to a few hundred testimonials, maybe organized into multiple categories, and displaying them a few different ways like a full page of testimonials and a slideshow widget, plus a form for accepting new testimonials.

If that describes your situation, this plugin will work for you right out of the box with just a few steps.

Primary Features

  • Star ratings
  • A front-end form
  • Custom form fields editor
  • Categories
  • Excerpts, both manual and automatic
  • Featured Images (thumbnails)
  • Slideshows with several navigation options
  • Sort by oldest, newest, random, or menu order (drag-and-drop)
  • Pagination
  • Built-in templates with several layout options
  • Template files and functions for deep customization
  • Gravatar support
  • Ready for translations
  • Compatible with WPML, Polylang and WPGlobus

Strong Testimonials plays well with other plugins and themes, and I strive to adhere to WordPress coding standards and best practices.

The Form

You can customize the form to your needs by adding or removing fields, or changing properties like the order, the text before or after, and the placeholder text.

The form also offers anti-spam options like honeypots and Captcha via these plugins: Captcha, Really Simple Captcha, and Advanced noCaptcha reCaptcha.

Notification emails can be sent to multiple admins when new testimonials are submitted. New testimonials can also be assigned to a specific category.

The form can be submitted via Ajax so it's compatible with popular plugins like Popup Maker.

Display

Everything happens in a view. Instead of learning multiple shortcodes with dozens of options, a view contains all the options in a simple, intuitive editor that no other testimonial plugin has. Display the view using a single shortcode or the widget.

You can create unlimited views. For example, one view for the form, another view for a list, another for a slideshow, and so on.

Some of the options for displaying testimonials in a list or slideshow:

  • select which testimonials to show
  • set the sort order
  • select which fields to include
  • extras like pagination
  • layout and style options

Style

Strong Testimonials offers a handful of templates to try in your theme. The default template is just generic enough to look good in most cases with maybe a few tweaks.

Need help matching your theme? Got some weird spacing or floating? I'm here to help.

For ultimate control and seamless integration, any template can be copied to your theme and customized (a tutorial and more templates coming soon). There is also a template function that can display any view.
