    • Thanks Patrick.

      Sure, a lot of these plugins help you pull up the bio of those who offer testimonials. That way you can add to the credibility of each testimony.

      I’m not sure about whether it would allow a registered & logged-in user to do the same but of the 30 plugins here, one or two might offer you that facility as well.

      You are welcome to check them out! I’m sure you’ll find what you are looking for. :)

  1. There sure are a ton of great testimonial plugins out there. You may also want to add Intense WordPress Site Builder.

    For testimonials, Intense allows you to customize the layout and includes several predefined layouts. You can also use it with or without Visual Composer.

    Apart from testimonials, Intense has 90+ shortcodes, 15+ custom post types, snippets (reusable content), templates, and more.

    Here are a couple example pages with testimonials: – second section and towards the bottom – entire page – contains a few of the layouts

    I am one of the authors so feel free to contact me with questions. I will definitely keep this article on hand for when we create more testimonial layouts. Thanks!
