    The client want the home page testimonials to rotate without a page refresh. What is the code for this, I’ve searched but haven’t found.
    thanks!!

    Your best bet would be to create that area as a sidebar for widgets, and use the testimonial widget set to cycle.

    Hello!
    Thanks for the response! I’m not sure if I can insert a widget in that area. The Doctor doesn’t want the testimonials in a sidebar on the home page. I’ll check about the other pages.

    So is it not possible without using the sidebar widget right now?
    Thanks!!

    No its not possible without using the widget right now.

    You could edit the theme and possibly add an area to use the testimonial widget from.

    Thanks! Ok, thank you, I might try that. One more question, I’ve set up the widget on the other pages, is there a way to randomize the rotation instead for starting over at the beginning on each page?

    Thank you so much!!

    Not without editing the plugin file for now, I will look into this for the next release.

    If you want to try editing the plugin, look for this code at around line 708:

    $args = array(
    	$term_taxonomy 		=> $term_slug,
    	'posts_per_page' 	=> $no,
    	'orderby'         	=> 'post_date',
    	'order'			=> 'DESC',
    	'post_type' 		=> 'testimonial',
    	'post_status'     	=> 'publish'
    );

    and change to:

    $args = array(
    	$term_taxonomy 		=> $term_slug,
    	'posts_per_page' 	=> $no,
    	'orderby'         	=> 'rand',
    	'post_type' 		=> 'testimonial',
    	'post_status'     	=> 'publish'
    );

    Note that I have not tested this code, so please backup any files you are changing.

    Great! Thank you, I’ll try it out! Do you think you might also add some code to auto-rotate the testimonials that are used on pages with short code?

    Thank you again so much!! You Rock!

    This is a bit more complex to do. It may possibly be added at a later date but I cant guarantee it sorry.

    If you really want to add auto-rotate to a page, you may need to look into editing the theme or page template and adding a widget area to pull the testimonial widget using the cycle option.

    Ok, thank you!! I appreciate you getting back with me so quickly!
    I’ll let you know once I try out the code you gave me if I can get access to it.

    Thank you again!

    Glad to help 🙂 Keep me posted with how you get on!

    I will! Thank you!

    Hi Devnz!

    I tried the code you gave me and it stayed the same (didn’t randomize the testimonials in the widget)

    Thank you! I’ll just wait until your next release.
    Thanks again!
