This plugin looks great. And that's about all it offers. I bought the PRO version on codecanyon. Biggest mistake ever. This free one here is even worse and to be honest, it should be removed. The plugin has been terribly coded, normal necessary functions are missing, there are a TON of misspelled words, and it loads really crappy and you get absolute ZERO support. (yes, this is a so-called 'elite' author. HAHAHA... What a complete JOKE.) This plugin is absolutely not worth it. Don't waste your time on this one. Look further.

I tried most of them including top rated and none of them work as good as this one. Not sure why others have given it a lower rating.

It's been 3 days I am working for the problem in the admin side until I have to disable all the plugins and enable them one by one to see which one has interfered, I really liked to use this plugin but have to uninstall it

Excellent plugin. After testing a number of other testimonial plugins, I found that this one has most number of layouts in free version. Good job done.
