Overview

When the Testimonials Shortcode is not displaying as a slider it is generally because the Testimonial Slider has not been activated.

To activate the Testimonial Slider:

  1. Access the Site Options Panel by clicking on ‘Appearance > Site Options ‘
  2. With the Site Options Panel click on the ‘Javascript Settings’ tab
  3. Lastly check the box to ‘Enable Testimonial Slider’
  4. Save Changes and rejoice. Slider should now be working nicely :)

Editing Testimonials

The Testimonials Shortcode can be easily modified via the Page Editing screen. If you’ve imported the XML demo content then you will already have the Testimonial Shortcode inserted within your homepage content. If not, you can simply grab the Testimonial Shortcode below.

To edit your testimonials simply:

  1. Access your WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Click on ‘Pages > Edit’.
  3. Edit the page you wish to Modify. (ie. your Homepage)
  4. Still in the Page Editing screen, scroll to the bottom to see the Testimonial Shortcode.
  5. Simply modify your Testimonial(s), Save the page, and you’re all set! :)
