Good plugin. Not super pretty but it does the job. Thanks.
Been meaning to write a review for some time. None of these reviewers are exaggerating...Jeff has demonstrated a rare responsiveness and professionalism as a developer. I had a question about future features, and instead of putting me off he asked what I was looking for and a week later the new features were released. Really solid. With the addition of microdata and filtering for star ratings, this is right up there in features with paid plugins...for free, and with far better support.
Jeff, nice job. I hope you get a paid version out there...I would support you.
This plugin works reliably and consistently across all the themes I have bought or created and throughout all of the WP Updates, leaving many of its stable mates broken or conflicting.
BUT the most outstanding aspect of this software is the unrivaled, fast and personal support given by its creator Jeff. In a cynical world with low expectations I was stunned to see my query answered in person and in length by Jeff, giving me a clear and simple solution. Reading through the forum I see this level of dedication is maintained throughout.
Great service and kindness needs to be recognised and I nominate Jeff for Best In Class!!!
Support this plugin and particularly this author- he is a rare beast.

5/5 Stars because this is the best testimonical plugin currently in the WordPress repo.
The default appearance of the testimonials is plain. CSS has to be used to be used to style the colors, fonts, layout etc...
Suggestions (for the developers):
1) Add a collection of themes to the plugin. I will donate one of my designs to help you get started. Send me a message via vizred.com to take up this offer
2) A skin builder with import, export and custom CSS features would be a cool feature.
3) Build the form up into a full-featured form builder with all form field types e.g add drop down select fields. Add drag'n'drop to the form builder and I'll donate $25.
4) If you do launch a pro version, please offer it on a donation basis, paid support basis or an unlimited updates/unlimited sites basis.
Thanks for releasing such a wonderful plugin.
Jeff responded to me about 5 minutes after I sent my email to him!
That is exceptionally great support for ANY Plugin, let alone for a F*ree Plugin. In fact, I have not received support this good from some of the developers of Paid Plugins that I have.
I highly recommend Jeff because he is great at providing support for this Responsive Plugin.
I specialize in creating Mobile Websites for my clients, and the Free HMS Testimonials Plugin provides me with a nice Responsive display on my Mobile Theme. I also asked Jeff to consider adding support for a Captcha Plugin that will work better with Mobile Websites.
He said he would consider adding this support in the near future. Most of the paid Plugin Developers don't have time to help their clients like this.
I highly recommend HMS Testimonials because it is a high quality Responsive Plugin.
>>>Update April 4 2014<<<
Today is 3 days after I spoke to you last.
I specialize in Mobile Websites and I was going to try to use the Google reCaptcha feature for my submit testimonials page. But the reCaptcha feature is NOT Responsive so it made my page twice as wide as it was supposed to be when viewed in my Mobile Phone. So Jeff worked with me by adding support to his Plugin for the Captcha Plugin from BestWebSoft.
Working with Jeff has been a real pleasure. I just gave Jeff a donation today, and I will give him another donation next month. It was worth it!
Whenever I sent Jeff a question, he would answer in minutes, not in hours, or days.
In fact, I just finished a marathon email session with Jeff where he kept answered my emails a minute after I sent them. It was almost like he was here in my office helping me add the finishing touches to his wonderful HMS Testimonials. I am going to delete all my other Testimonial Plugins from all of my other WordPress Sites and I am going to install the HMS Testimonial Plugin.
If you are looking for a Responsive Testimonials Plugin for your WordPress site, please download this one without any hesitation.
At this point, the plugin is free, but it works better than some of the paid plugins I have used. And Jeff provides support that is mostly unheard of in this industry. I only know of one or two others as good as Jeff with support.
I made sure that Jeff added me to his email list and I will purchase anything he decides to sell in the future.
I've used this plugin on a variety of client sites with success. There are so many ways you can organize and display the content it is a good fit for most websites.
I can't tell you how amazed I've been at the support provided by the developer, Jeff! His responses have been EXCEPTIONALLY FAST and extremely helpful. This plugin does what I need it to do, and for those with more CSS knowledge than I have, you'll be able to really adjust things how you like them. Jeff's responses were INCREDIBLY FAST (I know he can't possible do that all of the time, but WOW! I was amazed!). Thank you so much, Jeff, for being such a great person and providing this tool, plus your personal help. I greatly recommend HMS Testimonials. It's fantastic! And so is the developer. Thank you so much, Jeff! :)
This is an amazing plug-in with rich features, and the author, Jeff, is extraordinarily responsive and helpful!
This is a first rate plugin with lots of flexibility on usage. Jeff's support is top-notch too.
An insanely good plugin which does everything very well and with rare modesty - without ever forcing the author's signature onto the front end.
And if there's another active WP support forum with a higher percentage of resolved threads, I would be amazed. It's Saturday night here and the author just answered my query within 5 minutes.
