Testimonials Showcase is a plugin to display testimonials, reviews or quotes in multiple ways!
It’s Perfect to:
The entries will display in a grid with a specified number of columns and with the elements aligned depending on your settings. Other options include image shape and effects and different themes.
The entries will display in a slider, with the settings you defined. You’ll be able to control the transition effect, number of entries to display in each slide, and what type of controls.
The plugin has several options for your links. You can include a link in the subtitle of the entry, in the image and also a ‘read more’ link, that will lead to a single page entry for that particular testimonial, perfect for case studies! In addition you can also use lightbox links in the featured image!
What if you want your clients to submit testimonials directly from a page on your website? Easy! Just create a shortcode to display a frontend submission form! This way your clients will be able to submit testimonials easily and once you approve them they will display where you want them to! You can choose which fields to display and the messages to display!
The plugin includes a set of options that enable you to include meta information for search engines. When used properly this information will display in the search engine result pages!
It couldn’t be more easy to generate the necessary code to display the entries. Just go to the Shortcode generator, choose the settings you want and the shortcode and the php function that you can use will be generated and ready to copy and paste where you want! Shortcodes are to be used in posts, pages and widgets, while the php function will be necessary if you want to hard code the team showcase layout in your theme files.
The generator will make a preview of how the layout looks with the selected settings.
The shortcode will work on widgets! Just copy the shortcode and include it in a text widget and the chosen layout will display in the widget!
The plugin only makes use of CSS and font-icons to build the layouts so it will be retina ready. The user can install the free WP Retina 2x Plugin to make sure also the uploaded images used will also be retina ready!
The plugin is localisation ready, supporting .po and .mo language files! If you want the administration of the plugin in another language, you just need to create your own language files.
