After 2 full days of getting testimonials to work as I expect they should, I’ve made little progress. I can’t find the detailed instruction I apparently need. I use the Woo Testimonial plug-in to enter the testimonial text, and then I can find them on a page called “Testimonials.” In the Home 8 configuration area I added a Text Box and entered “Testimonials” as a title and [woothemes_testimonials limit=”10″ size=”60″] in the body. Adding the short code [uua_testimonials] in the body has no effect on it.
On the Home Page I see the testimonials in their entirety. What I prefer is to see is maybe 2 excerpts of testimonials with “Read more…” links and then a link to more stories.
What have I missed?
Don’t add a Text box to the Home 8 configuration area. Instead, drag the “Testimonials: Member Stories” widget to the Home 8 area. Then you can expand the widget (click its little down-arrow) to enter a title for the box and what to display.
Hope this helps!
Yes, and thank you, that address part of my quest. I still hope to find a way to configure how it is displayed.
