Testimonials Manager is a WordPress plugin that allows you to manage and display testimonials for your blog, product, or service. It can be used to build your portfolio or to encourage readers to subscribe/buy your products.

This is, without doubt, the best testimonial plugin for WordPress – it’s simple but powerful and flexible. Version 2 is redesigned and improved to allow more options when adding, managing, and displaying testimonials.

Add and Edit Testimonials Easily

To add a new testimonial, just enter the Name, Website, and Website URL as well as the full testimonial. Version 2 comes with a built-in text editor, using TinyMCE. You can use Gravatars or upload a custom user image. All uploaded images will be automatically re-sized based on your settings.

You can then view all your testimonials on a screen that is pretty similar to how you manage WordPress comments, and choose to Edit or Delete testimonials:

Display Full Testimonials Page

All your testimonials can be displayed according to order on a full page. All you need to do is paste the following code in any WordPress page where you want your testimonials to appear:

As of version 2, we added pagination and the ability to sort the order of testimonials that appear on the full page. Now you can have the latest testimonials displayed first, on page 1.

Rotate Testimonials Using Sidebar Widgets

Most importantly, you can rotate a predefined number of testimonials in your sidebar using WordPress widgets. Just drag and drop the Testimonials Manager widget in the correct sidebar, then give it a title and set the number of testimonials to rotate.

The widget will automatically detect pages with the shortcode and link to them with a “Read More” link. If you’ve put the code on more than one page, you can choose which page to link to.

Of course, you can also edit the appearance of the widget using the Custom CSS box. Make your testimonials scream out loud if you want to, or subtly remind your readers why they are subscribed in the first place.

From Version 2 onwards, you can have as many widgets as you want on different sidebars, depending on the design of your blog. Plus, the widget now uses true randomization instead of “linear” randomization.

Update:

This plugin is no longer supported, as we’ve grown jaded and annoyed with the WordPress plugin submission system.
