It is very easy to work with. It has so far been the best free testimonial plugin.

The Author of the plugin was very very helpful when I needed assistance.

Tips to those with issues that I had.

1.) If it simply isn't working 100% properly, be sure that

<?php wp_head(); ?>

is in the header.php file right before the </head> tag

and also that

<?php wp_footer(); ?>

is in the footer right after the </body> tag.

2.) If you are trying to list your testimonials on a page and you wish to change the width, do the following:

.testimonials-widget-testimonial.list {
    width: 100%;

(of course change the width to whatever you want in pixels or percent).

It's a great widget!

Thanks Michael for a great and easy to use plugin.

Lots of options
By , for WP 3.6.1

I've tested over a dozen testimonial plugins now and this one has a ton of options, but doesn't offer star ratings which is something we want. Then I ran the authors own example page through Googles rich snippet tester, and discovered no structured data or schema output either. -

I adjusted the review stars up to four, but I suspect it will be a five soon... Great interaction below to my initial review have lead to some very positive improvements...

{Now 5 Stars - Revised 11/2013]
This plugin has come a long way and earned 5 stars since my first look in October where I rated it a 3 - Use it, you'll be glad you did!

exactly what I was looking for!

Goed zo!
By , for WP 3.6.1

Great plugin :-) Just what I was looking for. Thanks!!

Would be great to have a shotcode setting for ms per character in stead of a number of seconds per testimonial so visitors don't need to wait on short testimonials and loose half of a long one.
I'm sure there is user manual with some shortcode examples, but I can't seem to find it...

Powerful and flexible
By , for WP 3.6.1

I love this plug-in - using tags and categories to display different testimonials or quotes on different pages, and the relative ease of styling to match my child themes make it a favourite. And I've yet to encounter any conflicts, or broken anything while updating it or anything else. Thanks and keep up the good work :)

Reliable and very easy to implement

This is a very robust plugin.
I'm absolutely raving at it and the technical support and assistance is just outstanding.
