Great Rotating Testimonial Plugin!

Group of blank colourful speech bubbles

I discovered a fantastic plugin for rotating testimonials on your WordPress site, in either your sidebar widget area or in the main content. Testimonials by Aihrus by Michael Cannon is a WordPress plugin that allows you to add and organize dynamic testimonials to your site.  The best part? It’s so easy!  

My biggest concern was the usability of the testimonial plugin.  Not only do we search for plugins that are high in functionality but also ones that we feel are user friendly for our DIY clients.  This plugin fit the bill.

Testimonials by Aihrus creates a new section in your WordPress admin panel (under “Comments” in the left sidebar).  Within this section you can add new testimonials and control the settings.  Adding a new testimonials is as easy as adding a new post.  After you have added all the testimonials that you want,  you “feed” those testimonials to any post, page or add to our sidebar as a widget.

An additional use of this testimonial plugin is to use it to create rotating text or tips rather than testimonials.  I’ve set up an example of rotating text below.  You can control the size, font and color of the text or testimonial just as you would in a regular post.

You can use this plugin to add testimonials to the sidebar of your WordPress site or in the main content.

Here is an example of this testimonial plugin used in one of our recent projects in their sidebar.  *Note: Because it is a screenshot, you will not actually see the testimonials rotate through.
