Style

This plugin provides a few designs with only basic style options for background color and font color. Everything else will be inherited from your theme.

Some templates have light & dark versions and other options. If you want to customize things like fonts, margins and borders, you will need custom CSS.

I will help with theme conflicts and a few tweaks. Otherwise, consider learning enough CSS to be dangerous or hiring a developer for a couple hours.

Testimonial Submission Form

This plugin provides one form with custom fields. Customize the form by adding or removing fields and changing properties like the order, label, and placeholder.

Anti-spam measures include honeypots and Captcha via these plugins:

Send custom notification emails to multiple admins.

Submit the form via Ajax for use with plugins like Popup Maker.

Free Add-on

Use the Country Selector plugin to add a country selector to your form. See the demo.

Displaying Testimonials

Everything happens in a View. Instead of learning multiple shortcodes with dozens of options, a View contains all the options in a simple, intuitive editor that no other testimonial plugin has.

Create unlimited views. For example, one view for a form, another for a static grid, another for a slideshow, and so on.

Display a view using a shortcode or the widget.

A variety of templates are included that work well in most themes.

For ultimate control and seamless integration, copy any template to your theme and customize it.

The template function will add a view to your custome theme templates:

<?php if ( function_exists( 'strong_testimonials_view' ) ) {
    strong_testimonials_view( $id );
} ?>

Privacy and GDPR

By default, this plugin:

  • does not store any user or visitor data,
  • does not send any data to remote servers, act as a service or embed content,
  • does not edit the comments form in any way.

The plugin also prevents displaying email addresses in your testimonials on the front end.

However, this plugin provides features that may involve private data.

  • If you use the testimonial submission form, the data collected on that form will be stored in your database.
  • If you enable the administrator notification email upon new testimonial submission, the data collected on your form, at your selection, may be included in that notification email.
  • If you enable comments on testimonials, the plugin will use your theme’s single post template and comment form.
  • If you embed third-party posts such as Twitter, YouTube and FaceBook in your testimonials, you will be agreeing to the Terms of Use of those third-party sites.
