A new, much improved filter is being used for excerpts which is word based, so you will have to reset your word count in the options menu

Testimonial Basics 4.1.2 has just been released. It is a major update and offers a number of new features and changes.

New Features

  • Backup and Restore – you can now backup and restore your testimonials, check out the new panel in the Testimonial Admin section
  • New Content Layout – a side meta option is now included as an optional layout
  • Widget Layouts – there are new options to place the meta and gravatar above or below the testimonial, and to either have the meta beside the gravatar or centered under the gravatar
  • Layout Overrides – you can override the default layout in the shortcode or widget, and select the layout you want, giving you the flexibility to use any layout you want anywhere you want
  • Schema Overrides – You can turn the schema on or off in the shortcode or widget, which helps on pages where more then one testimonial display system is being used

Improvements

  • Rounded corners and box shadow are gone – you may not think this is an improvement, but I decided to crate a new look and simplify things with square backgrounds
  • Round Avatars – You can now optionally select round avatars
  • Excerpts – a new, much improved filter is being used for excerpts which is word based, so you will have to reset your word count in the options menu
  • CSS Improved – I have attempted to simplify and hopefully improve the css for the plugin so if any problems crop up let me know and I will help you out.
  • Schema – Forced YYYY-MM-DD date format when using schema, this was causing Google structured data errors
  • Fixed database iussues – some users were experiencing database conflicts that arose from skipping updates
  • Edit Testimonials panel – changed testimonial display.
  • hatom feed – added this markup to all testimonials
  • Ratings – if a user has not rated a testimonial or rated it 0, then the stars will not show at all, minimum rating is now 0.5
  • Ratings – fixed rating dropdown list from showing 0.0 twice
