[resolved] Shortcode not working (7 posts)

    On a page, I am trying to display the full list of testimonials, but the shortcode doesn't seem to be working. I've combed through the FAQs and the forum, and I've added the widget display code to my functions.php file in my child theme, but still can't get it to work.

    The page I'm testing this on is: http://www.elitehomessandiego.com/test

    Are you trying to display all of the testimonials including content or just links to them?

    Are you wanting paging or not?

    In general [testimonialswidget_list] will provide you with paging for 10 complete testimonials at a time. In latest first order.

    If you want no paging and to list all complete testimonials then try [testimonialswidget_list limit=-1]. Personally, I haven't tried this, but in theory it should work as I'm abusing this for the premium version's count shortcode.

    Next, if you want to only have a listing of testimonial titles, then that's part of the premium plugin. That shortcode would be [testimonialswidgetpremium_link_list] and be used on a page, than post so that paging works. Alternately, [testimonialswidgetpremium_link_list limit=-1] for displaying all.

    Also, your test URL gives a coming soon message than results.

    If these don't help, let me know the steps specifically taken to reproduce your issue and what's your real goal.

    Thanks for getting back to me. Using [testimonialswidget_list] I am just trying to display the entire testimonial on a page. In my test page, the shortcode doesn't display anything. However, using firebug I can see that there is some styling going on with this: `.testimonialswidget_paging {
    clear: both;
    font-weight: 700;
    height: 1.4em;`

    Also, using firebug the divs for each of the testimonials are visible, but the testimonials themselves are not.

    And I turned off the Under Construction plugin so you should be able to access the page now at http://elitehomessandiego.com/test/

    CSS code

    .testimonialswidget_testimonial {
        clear: left;
        display: none;
        font-style: italic;
        margin: 0 0 1.3em;
    font-size: 1.2em;
    color: #555555;
    min-height: 7em;

    is breaking the display: block; of .testimonialswidget_testimonial_list. Remove the display: none; in your customization.

    Hi there, thanks for getting back to me.

    I removed the "display: none" but it's still not showing.

    Oh, it's working for me now too . . . I thought I cleared the cache. Ah well, glad it's working! Thanks for the help!
