In addition you can also use lightbox links in the featured image!
Front End Submission Form
What if you want your clients to submit testimonials directly from a page on your website? Easy! Just create a shortcode to display a frontend submission form! This way your clients will be able to submit testimonials easily and once you approve them they will display where you want them to! You can choose which fields to display and the messages to display!
Rich Snippets Compatible
The plugin includes a set of options that enable you to include structured data for search engines. When used properly this information might display in the search engine result pages! The code is included in JSON-LD format, as recommended by Google.
Shortcode Generator With 10+ Visual Customisation Options
It couldn?t be more easy to generate the necessary code to display the entries. Just go to the Shortcode generator, choose the settings you want and the shortcode and the php function that you can use will be generated and ready to copy and paste where you want! Shortcodes are to be used in posts, pages and widgets, while the php function will be necessary if you want to hard code the team showcase layout in your theme files.
The generator will make a preview of how the layout looks with the selected settings.
The plugin includes a Widget that can be used to display the layouts. Simply create a layout in the shortcode generator page, save it and you can use it in the widget! This will also work in the Layers WP framework.
If you’re using Visual Composer, you’ll also have a Testimonials module available to add to your page via the Visual Composer interface.
The plugin only makes use of CSS and font-icons to build the layouts so it will be retina ready. The user can install the free WP Retina 2x Plugin to make sure also the uploaded images used will also be retina ready!
