See this feature in action on our demo site Placester Realty!
The video and article below will show you how to create a page of testimonials to display on your website.
Creating a New Page
When you're logged into the back end of your site, you can create a page using either the Create option in the universal navigation bar or the [+] button in the Pages section.
Set the template type to Testimonials Index and give your page a title. A URL for the page will be generated based on the title - this is where you can view the page on the front end of your site.
Make sure the option to add the page to your menu is selected, then just click Create. You'll see your Testimonials page added to the list of pages on your site:
Now you'll need to add each testimonial individually using the Testimonials option within Site Details:
You can return to this area at any time to edit or remove testimonials. Click the + button to add a new testimonial.
In addition to the testimonial itself, you should include a title, the name of your referrer, their relation to you (i.e. Client), and then choose whether or not to feature the testimonial on your home page.
You can also add an excerpt and image for each testimonial that will appear when a visitor is previewing the testimonial before clicking through:

Testimonial order can be manipulated by updating the Publish Date on the backend of the site; testimonials with the most recent publication date will be displayed first. To edit the publish date, you must edit the testimonial:
And there you have it! Selecting a more recent publication date will allow you control which testimonials appear first on your site.
