Think Up! Testimonials

Description

Think Up Testimonials rotator uses WP’s native text widgets and a plugin created sidebar. Put your testimonials into individual
text widgets with the following markup.

<h3>Your nice quote from someone saying how great your or business are.</h3><h2>~ Andy Johnson</h2>

Place the text widget into the sidebar called ‘Think Up Testimonials’. To output the testimonial rotator on the front end, insert
the function `thinkup_testimonials()“ into your theme template files where you want the rotator to appear. You can also control the
time for each slide and if you want the rotator to autoplay or not through the callback function.

To create a slider within your template that rotates every 9 secs use the code thinkup_testimonials(9000);

To stop the default auto-rotate of the plugin, add the false parameter to the callback function like this thinkup_testimonials(9000, false);

Installation

  1. Upload the thinkup-testimonials folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to the widgets page and place a normal text widget in the ‘Think Up Testimonials’ sidebar and add a testimonial using this mark up <h3>Testimonial text here</h3><h2>~ Author</h2>
  4. Repeat step 3 as needed.
  5. Place thinkup_testimonials(); in your templates to output the rotator
  6. If you want to control the timing of the rotator, include the time (in milliseconds) within the callback function. ie: thinkup_testimonials(9000); creates a slider with a 9 sec delay.
  7. If you want to stop the default auto-rotate feature, just add a second parameter ‘false’ to the callback function like so thinkup_testimonials(9000, false);

FAQ

How can you change the size of the testimonial or author text?

You are able to set the delay time between testimonials using the callback function. Place the delay time (in milliseconds) with the brackets of the
the callback function. ie: thinkup_testimonials(9000); would set the time delay to 9 seconds between testimonials.
