Floating Reviews and Testimonials

Descripcion

The plugin adds a floating button to your website’s sidebar that can display any reviews and/or testimonials you may have. When a visitor hovers over the button, a sidebar popup displays the reviews/testimonials that they can then scroll through. The popup and button can be styled to match your site, including colours, fonts, button position and shape. All text in the popup and plugin is editable, so you can use any language.

View a Live Demo (In this demo, the button has been positioned bottom left).

You stay in control of which reviews or testimonials are displayed on your website, they aren’t automatically added to your site (so if you get an unfair review, it isn’t automatically displayed on your website!). The reviews/testimonials are manually added by you. They can come from any source, e.g. Google, Facebook, Yelp etc, or from the reviewer directly. In the popup, you can then display who the review came from, what the star rating was (if any) when the review was given, their business name (if any) and the review itself. You can also choose whether to display the popup on mobiles.

If you choose to display the floating button for mobile visitors, the button slides out of view when the mobile user is scrolling down your pages so they can fully view your website’s content, and then reappears when they scroll back up.

FAQ

Q) Will bad reviews be added to my site?
A) You are in control of which reviews or testimonials are displayed. So if, for example, you receive a one star review that you are disputing with the reviewer, you can simply choose to not publish that review.

Q) Does the plugin support non-English languages?
A) Yes. Whilst the plugin’s admin pages inside WordPress are in English, all elements of the published button and popup that appear on your website are editable by you and so can be in any language you choose.

Q) Can I change the button’s fonts and colors to match my website?
A) Yes, there are various fonts you can choose from (serif and sans serif). You can also choose the exact colors via a color-picker or by inputting the hex code.

Q) Can I dictate which pages the button and popup will be shown on?
A) Yes. There is a blacklist and a whitelist option you can use so you can choose whether you want the reviews and testimonials to be excluded from specific pages or included on specific pages.

Q) How many reviews can be displayed?
A) Any number. The popup will display reviews/testimonials up to the first 10 and then the reader can click to load the next 10, and so on.

Q) Do I have to include a star rating?
A) No. If you don’t want to display a star rating for a review, simply add the review as a testimonial. You can display a mix of starred reviews and testimonials with no star rating, or just starred reviews, or just testimonials with no star rating. You choose!

Q) Can I call the button/popup any name I want rather than ‘Customer Reviews’?
A) Yes, all text on the button and in the popup is editable by you. The button’s text is limited to 18 characters.

Q) Will the button and popup display on mobile devices?
A) You can choose whether you want the button and popup to appear only on desktops/tablets or on mobiles too.

Q) How do I change the order that the reviews/testimonials are displayed in?
A) The order is based on the date that you published the review via the plugin. If you want to change the order, simply edit the date or time that the reviews/testimonial was published to change the order.

Q) Can I delete or hide a review/testimonial?
A) Yes. If you have changed your mind about displaying a review or testimonial that you previously published, you can choose to make that review or testimonial Private (to hide it) or you can delete it.

Q) What if I don’t know all the information about one of my reviews, e.g. the exact date it was given?
A) When adding a review or testimonial, you choose which fields to input and which to leave blank. Also, if you don’t know the exact date for example, you can instead simply enter a month and year rather than a specific date.

I want to thank the author for this beautiful plugin he created here, and I can assure anyone that this plugin is a number one essential scrip needed for all sites that wish to add reviews and testimonials of their customers. I love the work of this author because of how flexible he built the plugin. I even found that this plugin can also be used for Portfolio site and make the page stand out. If I could over star the plugin, I would do that. Sadly 5 star is the limit.
