Not Responsive

How can you call this plugin responsive when you have to set a height for the testimonials, something that might very well change from desktop to mobile.

Not only that, the height gets written directly into the style property of not one, not two but three entire wrapper elements. I could write overwrite this with my own css, but at this point it’s not worth the hassle, better use another plugin for this.

Great Plugin

This is a great plugin. It’s easy to work with and has a variety of settings. Thanks for the good work.
