Support » Plugin: Testimonials Widget » Author won't hide

  • Resolved doremifasolatido


    Using Testimonials widget and it works well on several sites, however when switching to our custom theme on my current site it suddenly ignores that I’ve checked “hide author/source?”. Instead it shows author and company and I only want company to show, besides the testimonial. So we changed something relating to content in functions file and both author/company was gone. So we changed back and their both still gone. Strange? Do you have any idea? Everything else on the site works perfect.

    More than likely it’s CSS. You probably need a more accurate selector.

    What’s the URL?

    It’s a client development site, can I send it by mail?

    Hi again. After deactivating and removing Testimonials Widget I notice data is still left in wordpress wp_postmeta. How can I clean my database completely from Testimonials widget if I would want that? All starting with “testimonials-widget…”? Cheers, Elena

    Fiddling about. It was simpler than thought. Removed all posts. Made sure settings as I want. Added all posts back and they contain only Company and not author. However, bit strange the settings wasn’t possible to change after posts creation. Really really nice widget though! If keeps working like this I will give 5 star!

    Oh, and resolved!

    On deactivation, Testimonials Widget doesn’t remove data, but I’ll work on adding an option to do so.

    I’m still curious about your author show/hide issues. How were you trying to hide them? Via global, widget, or shortcode options?

    Tried hiding author (on widget) through Testimonials -> Settings-> General in WP CMS.

    Ah, and now I get it.

    The widget inherits whatever settings are in global settings once the widget is “created”.

    And when I changed global settings in the CMS global, it was overridden by the widget’s general settings.

    Of course. And it makes sense. So that you can have different views in different widgets despite global settings.
