How To Use The Testimonials Element

The Testimonials Element is a very useful way of adding testimonials into your page content. To start, add the element into your desired column.

There are both Parent Options, which affect the whole series of testimonials (if you have more than one), while you can also configure the individual testimonials. This element has a range of options, starting with two designs. Once you have chosen your design, there is a range of General and Deisgn options for your to configure.

Apart from the Parent Options, there are the Child Items. Click the pencil icon to edit the existing item, and the Child Item Options Panel appears. This is where you add the content for the individual testimonials. Here, you can add the person’s name, choose an avatar (including the options to upload your own image), the company name, a link for the company name, and the actual testimonial content.

You can then set up other testimonials, either by duplicating existing ones, or creating new testimonials, by clicking on the Clone Item icon, or the + Testimonials button respectively.

Read below for a description of all element options.
