Never Activated
By , for WP 4.1

Installed fine, but just didn't want to activate. After several troubleshooting attempts, moved on to another plugin. There are plenty others.

"The plugin does not have a valid header."

Author recommends a "debugging routine" to get a standard plugin like this working. Seriously, get your things together...

worst support guy ever
By , for WP 3.9.1

That plugin was ok, until I discovered faults in it. Tried for some support and a really arrogant support guy/developer Michael Cannon who likes making you feel stupid and requires you to suck up to and jump through hoops to sooth his fragile ego insults your intelligence. I have read through many post and when you have a problem he takes it personally and defends his plugin to the hilt! the..you know...I'm right and your wrong no matter what. I don't need the grief that these types of so called expert prima donna's create. I respect their expertise but get real....your not my master and your no better than me in this world...

PHP version 5.4.21
Wasted my time!

Can't even activate it.
By , for WP 3.8

Plugin "Testimonials by Aihrus" has been deactivated as it requires PHP 5.3.0 or newer. You're running PHP 5.2.17. Once corrected, "Testimonials by Aihrus" can be activated.

I have everything that i can update updated, so in order to use this i either have to wait for my hosting company to update the PHP they use or switch hosting companies.

Latest update crashed site
By , for WP 3.7.1

Site crashed with Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STATIC, expecting ')' in /home3/reatatec/public_html/wp-content/plugins/testimonials-widget/lib/aihrus/class-aihrus-common.php on line 44 after applying update. As a non-programmer it was a considerable effort to get site back up again. Doesn't anyone test this stuff? Removed this plugin for good as soon as site started functioning again!

Updates break layout
By , for WP 3.5.2

A recent minor update broke the layout on one of my sites. That may be alright for a major point update, but certainly not for a .x update, and certainly not without a clear warning in the changelog (which I always read before updating anything).

Makes me scared to use this plugin on bigger sites. Not recommended.

Broken with updates
By , for WP 3.5.1

This was a solid plugin that worked well and provided most of what I needed, despite a few minor flaws (i.e. unable to hide quotations). However, with the latest updates the product quality has changed significantly and the support is non-existent. Large chunks of the Settings UI no longer functions, and the areas that do clearly do not function correctly.

I can understand problems in development, but the lack of support is unacceptable for a product at this stage of development.

Broken plugin.
