Awesoms and easy plugin, even for newbies:)

Thanks for this awesome pluging. Its so easy to make it work.

Only thing i cant figure out, is how website visitors can leave a testimonial behind with star rating. Is this option included in this plugin?

a thousand "thank-you's"
By ,

I've been searching for a text rotator like this one for a while, with some frustration. Every plugin I've seen had a very distinct American flavor... meaning that it was somewhat useful, but seriously lacking in some way, or it was a "light" version of something, meaning seriously crippled and not usable. And now I stumble upon your product and I'm blown away - it's totally useful and robust - EXACTLY what I needed. Thank you and keep up the good work.

Screwed up my testimonials page
By , for WP 4.2.2

I installed the rotator with the name "testimonials.

My testimonials page was also called /testimonials/.

I noticed that when I was clicking on the menu for the page /testimonials/, the list form of the rotator was appearing (my testimonials are pretty long).

I then changed the name of the rotator to "testimonials clips" and it didn't get confused anymore.

Tonight, though, I completely lost access to my /testimonials/ page, it would only show the short clips that I had included in the rotator.

I deactivated the plugin, even deleted it, and now my /testimonials/ page redirects to the home page. I had to create a /success/ page for the testimonials accessible through the main menu, but the old /testimonials/ page is not accessible, making all the links I have throughout the website to be broken.

Very upsetting.

Phenomenal

Works great and offers template customization. Priceless.

Excellent Plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin is great, I downloaded 3 plugins and found this one the easiest to use and set-up. I only wish I had installed this one first as I wouldn't have installed any more.

Would highly recommend this plugin

Clean, simple and a developer's dream
By , for WP 4.2.1

OK folks, so here I am after installing two different testimonial plugins. The one that has had more downloads I didn't activate yet, and I'm not even going to.

This is one of the most developer-friendly plugins it has ever been my massive pleasure to work with. I cannot say anything bad about Testimonial Rotator (well, see bottom).

You can set up only one, or multiple rotators. Then, each testimonial you put in can be assigned to one or multiple rotators. OK, that's cool, nothing phenomenal, but it's a great touch.

Rotator editing can be set by user role. If you are already using Font Awesome, there is a setting to turn it off so you don't load it twice. 3 different options for error handling visibility.

Each rotator has 5 different transition options, featured image size (based on your media library and whatever other size your theme/plugin configuration offers), so much more. And each one comes with a list of suggested shortcodes that you can put right into your editor.

Did I mention custom field capabilities? Or custom template capabilities? Microdata (hReview) integration?

The kicker for me is that each rotator and each and every part of the rotator has its own CSS ID and/or class. That makes it stunningly easy to make your rotators look however you want, even different styles for different rotators on the same page. And there are no friggin' !important directives anywhere. SWEEEEET!!! (That's maybe the stupidest thing a theme or plugin developer can do, IMHO.)

There's a lot more. But what got me stopped doing what I was doing is that I was trying it out on my phone, AND YOU CAN SWIPE THE TESTIMONIALS.

Damn. That's cool. Even when the nav arrows are turned off.

If I ever find any ground that Hal Gatewood has walked on, I will kiss it multiple times.

THIS IS THE KIND OF PLUGIN DEVELOPER THAT EVERY PLUGIN DEVELOPER SHOULD BE!!

Thanks guys. Y'all ROCK! :)

p.s. Why does the vertical transition go from top to bottom? Looks kinda weird! Was gonna use that, but looks backwards to me. ;-)

great plugin

Tried a lot of similar plugins. This plugin is very good! Easy to customize, or make changes! Thank you for the plugin!

Nice looking but Buggy
By , for WP 4.1.1

Cannot display more than 5 testimonials per rotator and the previous/next arrows do not show up.

Just what I was looking for
By , for WP 4.1

Love this plugin and the simplicity of implementing it. Just what I was looking for!

Tried a few testimonial plugins
By , for WP 4.1

I needed a nice testimonial plugin for my footer widget area with microformat. this was the only one I found that I liked.

The only suggestion I have for improvement is that I'd really like to get rid of that horizontal line that shows next to the author name. Not sure why the developer put it there. I think it would be cleaner without it. other than that, pretty happy with the plugin so far.
