Reviews

[Recently unabandoned] Abandonware

Convinced this plugin is becoming abandonware. Would consider donating or paying if this were an active project. Regardless, it seems that breakages and complaints about lack of basic functionality (categories!) have gone unaddressed without sufficient explanation. I would steer clear.

Edit: Frank has fixed some items more recently. Plugin still isn’t what I would consider feature-rich; discouraging in light of the fact that some pro Genesis themes are reliant on a testimonial slider with limited capabilities, but that would have to do more with those theme creators than this plugin.

Image resizing

No way to resize images properly using CSS. Images end up distorted if you go larger than 100px. Plugin not well supported.

nice but not well tested

I used the plugin twice in modern Genesis themes and both times it causes the site to go blank. It seems to me that it has not been tested thoroughly. Let me know if you want to know the details.

Excellent plugin, great support

Absolutely a wonderful plugin. Recent update broke, was missing three lines in .php. Emailed them and holy cow it was fixed in five minutes, they put out new fix. How’s that? Excellent!

Easy to use, works fine!

It’s a perfect plugin. It looks great and comes with all the options you will need. Plus, it can be easily customized to your needs with some CSS. Great work!

Super Handy!

Great plugin, has come in so handy for displaying multiple testimonials. Looks great and handy to be able to customise with CSS too. Keep up the great work.
