Support » Plugin: Testimonials by WooThemes » Request for random order

  • Hi, first off great work on this little plugin thus far! It’s definitely saved me a lot of work.

    However one feature that I wish was included in the widget was the ability to sort testimonials by random order.

    I have a site where the client has requested 1 random testimonial displaying in the sidebar of every page. But in order to accomplish this I need to manually code my own widget rather than use the native testimonial widget included with this plugin.

    Just a suggestion for an easy update that I think many users would find helpful.

    Hi evster,

    Thanks for your query. 🙂

    You could use the “orderby” parameter and set this to “rand” when using the shortcode.

    Please advise if this produces the desired result. 🙂

    Thanks and regards,

    Thanks Mattyza. That’s exactly what I did (though in my case I used php instead of a shortcode).

    But what I was getting at was that it would be a cool feature to add that random sort order to the widget that’s part of the plugin. That way I won’t need to create my own custom widget just to pull a random testimonial.

    @evster – This functionality has been added in version 1.2.1 of the plugin. 🙂
