    Excellent work!

    The only things I can think to add at this point (outside of the previously mentioned pagination & clickthough features) are:

    1. A title field/parameter that would appear below the author name and above the company field.
    2. That way you could sort of add value to each testimonial by denoting who at the company gave the testimonial. A testimonial from the company’s CEO > A testimonial from the company’s intern or janitor.

    3. The ability to have the URL source open in a new tab/menu when clicked on the front-end testimonial
    4. Thanks for the hard work!

      PS – Michael I also shot some coffee/beer money your way today. Hope it made it!

    Thank you for the compliment.

    1. I’m hesitant to add this one field because you can simple put “First Last, Title” as the author or title already. If I see more votes for this, then I will.

    2. Good idea and one I’ve thought about, but finally researched enough to figure out how. It’s on the TODO list when next coding on TM. I’m on another project this week, and in Japan next week; so figure early November for update.

    PS: I’ve gotten the beer money. Will be using to recover from a 3-day cycling trip in Northeast Taiwan this coming weekend.

    2. URL target now works in upcoming 2.1.7 release. See Shortcode Examples and Widget Options.

    For putting the Company to a newline, try the following CSS.

    .testimonialswidget_company {
    display: block;
    }
    .testimonialswidget_join {
    display: none;
    }

    Good call on just putting the title on the same line as the Author. The only potential issue I see with that is then the CSS for the title is tied to/dependent on the CSS for the author [.testimonialswidget_author].

    If the Author has a really long title, or a really long name, or a really long name and long title, then that could make for a very long line. I also use fairly large point sizes since minimalist designs with large font sizes are all the rave when considering how a site will be viewed on a mobile device.

    At any rate its a relatively minor issue.

    Look forward to the URL target update circa November.

    Safe travels.

    PS – Yep, I had concocted that CSS for putting company on a new line already. 🙂 Thanks!

    URL target is in 2.1.7 release. See Shortcode Examples and Widget Options.

    When I get a little more time to do PHP debug notice clearing, I’ll go ahead with the title aspects. I’m still not sure about the next testimonial clicking, but I’ll think of something.

    Thank you for the feedback and support.

    No problem. Just tried the URL targeting in 2.17. Works flawlessly…Thanks!

    Twas bored while in Kyoto this morning.

    Shortly, release 2.1.10 adds a title field and should have the PHP notices removed. Please try that.

    Works like a charm. Thanks for the title field!

    You’re welcome, glad to have helped.

    Just a suggestion – since the testimonials are custom post types, why not enable page attributes, then you could simply order by menu order – that way, you could order your testimonials in whatever way you wanted (as per use-case: CEO > Janitor)…

    Thank you for the suggestion, but at this point, I don’t think it’s a practical solution in the long run for folks that end with lots of testimonials.

    If you’re running a dozen or so, no problem to menu id. However, when you start getting several dozen, you’re going to have to group them or modify some other data field anyways to get the desired ordering.

    Now, if a few other folks say ‘hey, I want order by menu order’ then I’ll toss it onto the TODO list.

    Not great, but an idea for ordering at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/order-by-id-list?replies=7.
