options-general-settings

The main settings page include general settings such as image processing, content visibility, and display options that affect all of the testimonials on your site.

Testimonial Image Options
  • Enable Re-sizing – If enabled, the plugin can automatically re-size your images if they are larger than certain length. Otherwise your images will be displayed “as is”.
  • Image Max Width – Your images will be re-sized and cropped if they are larger than this width.
  • Image Max Height – Your images will be re-sized and cropped if they are larger than this height.
  • Alternate Alignment – Alternate image alignment between left and right
  • Rotate Images With an Arrow – When both before and after images are present, you might like to enhance the transformation with this design option.
Misc Options
  • Exclude from search – If active, testimonials and its groups (taxonomies) are excluded from search results within your WordPress site.
  • Disable single view pages – By default, the plugin generates a page for each and every testimonial you add similar to how a blog post has a single view page. However, this might not be desirable for SEO if you are not using them.
  • Add Quotes – Automatically add double quotes around your testimonial texts so you don’t have to.
  • Minimum Testimonials per Tag – You may want to make sure every testimonial group (shortcode) has certain number of testimonials. The plugin will supply testimonials from other groups if a minimum number is not met.
  • Weight Unit – If you are showing weight loss results, your measurement can be in pounds or kilograms.
  • Remove data on uninstall – Only when you want to permanently erase all of your data created with the plugin.
