The testimonials feature lets you collect kudos from customers and clients and display them on your site in different ways to add credibility and a professional feel.

Activating Testimonials and Setting Testimonials Per Page
If your theme doesn’t have the Testimonial feature active by default, you can turn it on by going to My Sites → Settings → Writing → Content Types and turning on the “Testimonials” option.
Choose the number of projects you’d like to display on Testimonial pages. Keep in mind that some themes may override this number for design reasons, such as keeping a grid of testimonials even. Your changes should be saved automatically, or use the “Save Settings” button.
Adding and Managing Testimonials
Similar to the way you add new posts, you can add a new testimonial under Testimonials → Add. Testimonials are ordered by the date they’re created, with the most recent testimonial displayed first.
Put the testimonial author’s name in the title field, and if you’d like an author photo or logo displayed, add it as a Featured Image to each testimonial.
There are a few different ways to view your testimonials after they’ve been created.
The following links are created once you add testimonials.
- Testimonial Archive –

- Single Testimonial Page –

Be sure to swap the words in bold with your real site address and the appropriate slug. For example, if a testimonial title – which acts as the author – is Oprah, your default slug will be oprah and your address for the single testimonial by Oprah will be

If any of the Testimonial page links result in a “Page Not Found” error, this can be easily fixed by disabling and re-enabling the Testimonial content type. Go to Settings → Writing → Your Custom Content Types, uncheck the Testimonials option, save your changes, and then re-check the Testimonials option and save your changes again.
