Display Testimonials with a Shortcode
Once you have added all your Testimonials and configured their content, you can then add these Testimonials via shortcodes. These shortcodes are configured using the following shortcode options:
set the number of columns to display
options: 1, 2, 3, 4
eg: [testimonials columns=4]
Choose how the testimonials should be ordered
options: none, ID, name, date, rand (or any of the orderby options accepted by WP Query)
eg: [testimonials orderby=rand]
whether to display testimonials in ascending or descending order (based on the orderby parameter)
options: ASC, DESC
eg: [testimonials order=’DESC’]
set the maximum number of testimonials to be returned
eg: [testimonials limit=4]
Specify which testimonials to include by entering a comma seperated list of IDs. (This overrides the order and limit parameters; testimonials will display in the order in which the IDs are entered)
Eg: [testimonials include=’7, 38, 19′]
Set the featured image or Gravatar size to display on each testimonial. Accepts numbers only, exclude the ‘px’.
Eg: [testimonials size=200]
Choose whether the images should resize according to the size of the viewport (enabled by default)
Eg: [testimonials responsive=false]
Choose whether the images should display (enabled by default)
Eg: [testimonials show_image=false]
