    Hello.
    When some1 post a testimony using the Testimony input Form, it's pending for approval. How can I make it display without the owner having to approve?
    I dont want my client to log into the WP ADMIN to approve testimonies.
    Is there any other way for him to approve without logging as admin?

    Thanks alot for this great plugin.

    Hey aragorn_911,

    Right now no. All testimonials must be approved. I will consider adding that as an option in the future though.

    I know it can be inconvenient, but do people want testimonials automatically showing up under that section without any form of moderations?

    There is a lot of spam bots that hit WordPress sites. That's why this plugin offers integration with 2 different captcha systems and can even use Akismet. If none of these are enabled they will be subject to a lot of testimonials selling "ugg boots" and other spam that gets submitted.

    If your client has a falling out with someone (not even necessarily a client), they can leave a nasty testimonial and it will show up for the world to see until your client takes it down.

    Thanks for the complement about the plugin.

    Thank youuuu for the reply! :)
    I Understand that this is necessary. In fact, Now i think its mandatory.

    So is there any other way to approve of the testimony without logging into the WP-ADMIN ?

    Thank you for your support.

    Nope. Aside from automatically approving it, do you have an idea that you are thinking of?

    Hey aragorn_911,

    This will be in the next update (still within the next 2 weeks or so). I do have it working on my development site.

    First, there is a new option where testimonials can be automatically approved. This is for those who like to live dangerously. By default, manual approval is required and there is a message recommending against automatically approving it.

    Secondly, the emails to the site admin contains a link so they can approve a testimonial without having to login. When they click it, it will show a message and then they will be redirected to their home page.
