Testimonials

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.

Viewing Testimonials

There are a few different ways to view your testimonials after they’ve been created.

The following links are created once you add testimonials.

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 Weave Large Beach Blue Pool Shopping Summer Tote Aqua Bag Design Printed Ladies Tropical yourgroovysite.wordpress.com/testimonial/oprah/.
