Support » Plugin: Testimonials Widget » quotation marks above and below each testimonial printed to the page

  • Resolved ramedia


    I think this is because you are surrounding the testimonial with paragraph tags (or wordpress is adding them). Is there a workaround with css to get the quotes to inline with the testimonial.

    This is what mine look like on the page:

    quote is here.

  • I figured it out. You have to add this to the widget’s css file:

    .testimonialswidget_testimonial q p {
    display: inline;


    you’ve corrected the display for the widget, but not for the page:
    .widget .testimonialswidget_testimonial q p {
    display: inline;

    I wonder if q should be inline. Otherwise, with p being inline, the paragraph breaks are lost.

    Your thoughts?

    What about…

    .testimonialswidget_testimonial q p:first-child {
    margin-top: 0;
    padding-top; 0;
    .testimonialswidget_testimonial q p:last-child {
    margin-bottom: 0;
    padding-bottom; 0;

    This way the p tags aren’t collapsed completely.

    I have the same problem with new install of the plugin. I added the code suggested and found no change. Currently with or without change:

    I’m still experimenting with this. Not an easy one I think.

    Thanks for the quick response. My intent is to create a simple page that has list of all testimonials. Either,

    (a) similar to widget display in sidebar, or

    (b) as a bulleted list (e.g., [li][testimonial]—[name][/li])

    MIght be easier to just say q{ quotes:none; } and then style q::before and q::after with some graphics that have a load of spacing with them.

    Resolved with version 2.7.3 of of Testimonials Widget.

    Hi I am having this issue. How do I resolve?

    Hi – I didn’t start having this issue until I downloaded version 2.7.3 today. Any ideas?

    The underlying CSS and HTML have changed.

    Have you cleared browser cache?

    Have you cleared your CDN of CSS files?

    If still broken, please provide URLs of where the problem is happening for me to debug further.

    I cleared my browser cache and the cache in my WP Super Cache plugin, and that didn’t help. I’m a bit new to all this, though, so I’m not really sure how to clear my clear my CDN of CSS files…

    I too am having this same problem. It started with v 2.7.3 (I think) and I’ve upgraded to v 1.7.4 and still have this problem. The weird part is half of the testimonials are fine and the other half have this problem. I thought I found it when I discovered some of the testimonials were formatted justified left and right but after changing these it still didn’t work.

    The website is

    Hi you can see it


    I solved my issue. WordPress evidently had added some formatting markup to the “posts”. Since I almost always edit in visual mode I didn’t see it. Switching to text mode and removing all markup such as <p> and even <div> in one case.

    It’s strange because before the recent updates it was working fine. Evidently adding the quotes caused the problem.

    Solution: Switch to text mode and remove all markup!
