Clover - Testimonials

In this tutorial, we'll go over how to create your own testimonials and configure the testimonials plugin.

Before You Begin

Make sure the Strong Testimonials plugin is installed and active on your website.

Creating testimonials

1. To create your first testimonial, go to the  Testimonials tab in your WordPress dashboard.

2. At the top of the All Testimonials screen, click  Add New.

3. You'll be shown a screen that resembles the WordPress Classic Editor.

Title field: This is where you'll place your testimonial title. The testimonial title can say anything you'd like, since it is only used in the dashboard (will not display on front end of your website).

Text field: This is where you'll place your testimonial text or client's quote.

Client Details: In the demo, only the Full Name field is utilized. Place your client's name here. 

Featured Image: Optional; not shown in demo. If you set a featured image, the image will display beneath the testimonial text.

4. Once you've filled in your information, click  Publish to save the testimonial.

5. Repeat steps 1-4 for any other testimonials you'd like to add.

Creating a testimonial view (widget)

To place the testimonials on your site, you'll create what's called a "View." A View is like a widget containing all of your testimonials.

1. Go to Testimonials > Views > Add New. 

2. Here are the settings changed in the demo:

  • Name: Add a name for your View here (i.e. "Homepage Testimonials Widget")
  • Mode: Slideshow
  • Transition: Show slides for 6 seconds
  • Under Fields > Title, uncheck the box
  • Under Style > Template, select Modern
  • All other settings can remain the default

3. Click Save Changes to publish the View.

Adding a testimonial view to your website

Once you've created your testimonials and a View, it's time to add the testimonials to your website.


Go to Appearance > Widgets. Drag a  Strong Testimonials View widget into the Front Page widget area of your choice.

If you'd like to add a title above the widget, add your widget title to the Title field.

Under  View, select the View you created above. Click Save.


Create or open an existing page or post. Click the plus icon to add a new block. Search and add a  Strong Testimonial View block. Under Select a View, select the View you created above. Click Publish or Update.

Customizing the Testimonials Widget

The testimonial text is set to a fairly large font size by default. If you'd like to change the font size and/or the type of font, here is the CSS code you can modify:

.wpmtst-testimonial-content p {
    font-size: 30px;
    font-family: Gilda Display;
