Wow. GET THIS PLUGIN.
By , for WP 4.1

I was searching for an easy way to add testimonials on a client's site. I'd found several slideshow plugins that would work, but they were all lacking. For some reason, I decided to search for a Testimonials plugin. And I'm happy to report that this one didn't just meet, but exceeded my expectations.

The plugin is an elegant, lightweight, fast, and easy solution to a tedious problem - adding multiple quotes to a page or post. I can't brag on this plugin enough. Most plugins are written by people who are long on tech savvy, but short on user interface smarts. Not these guys. The ONLY hitch I see in the plugin is the process for editing a group...it's slightly non-intuitive to have a modal screen that allows you to rename a group, before it allows you entry into modifying a selection of quotes for an existing group. But that's a nit.

If you need to add rotating quotes to a site, and you want as much control over the management as well as look and feel of the quotes on the page - GET THIS PLUGIN.

Awesome Plugin

Hey Jeff, nice job!!

I was able to customize the look of the testimonials exactly how I wanted. The way you wrap each element in it's own div with a class is perfect!

The only suggestion I can offer is that I had to use jQuery to move my newly created form elements (Company, Position) into the position I wanted them to display in the form; when a testimonial is created. Perhaps allowing the "create form" elements to also be "slid" into position (order) would be a nice addition.

Otherwise.. it's perfect.

I also utilized the star rating system successfully. Nice!!

Again... great job. I will be donating.

Best plugin and support ever!

By , for WP 3.9.1

this is a great plugin, very simple to use , very open to customisation if you know what you are doing unlike me, but Jeff the developer gave me so much support to make it just as i want.

highly recommended!

Excellent plugin and outstanding support
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is a great plugin with lots of features and outstanding support.

Your users can input their testimonials on your website, they can be assigned to a specific group, you can approve the testimonials before publishing them, and you can chose how you want to display them.

The only thing I can think of as far as improvement is a few "skins" to make the testimonials stand out more on the page if you wish.

Excellent work overall, and super reactive support which is the icing on the cake of a superb plug in.

5 star review plugin for wordpress - free
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

Function and Support - Outstanding
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

Amost Everything you Might Need in a Testimonial Plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

5/5 Stars because this is the best testimonical plugin currently in the WordPress repo.

Pros

  • the plugin is regularly updated
  • it works
  • has widgets
  • has shortcodes
  • testimonials be displayed staticly
  • testimonials can display in random rotation
  • has a shortcode builder
  • form elements can be customized

Cons

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.
