== Usage ==

To display your testimonials via a theme or a custom plugin, please use the following code:

`<?php do_action( 'woothemes_testimonials' ); ?>`

To add arguments to this, please use any of the following arguments, using the syntax provided below:

* 'limit' => 5 (the maximum number of items to display)
* 'per_row' => 3 (when creating rows, how many items display in a single row?)
* 'orderby' => 'menu_order' (how to order the items - accepts all default WordPress ordering options)
* 'order' => 'DESC' (the order direction)
* 'id' => 0 (display a specific item)
* 'display_author' => true (whether or not to display the author information)
* 'display_avatar' => true (whether or not to display the author avatar)
* 'display_url' => true (whether or not to display the URL information)
* 'echo' => true (whether to display or return the data - useful with the template tag)
* 'size' => 50 (the pixel dimensions of the image)
* 'title' => '' (an optional title)
* 'before' => '&lt;div class="widget widget_woothemes_testimonials"&gt;' (the starting HTML, wrapping the testimonials)
* 'after' => '&lt;/div&gt;' (the ending HTML, wrapping the testimonials)
* 'before_title' => '&lt;h2&gt;' (the starting HTML, wrapping the title)
* 'after_title' => '&lt;/h2&gt;' (the ending HTML, wrapping the title)
* 'category' => 0 (the ID/slug of the category to filter by)

The various options for the "orderby" parameter are:

* 'none'
* 'ID'
* 'title'
* 'date'
* 'menu_order'

`<?php do_action( 'woothemes_testimonials', array( 'limit' => 10, 'display_author' => false ) ); ?>`

The same arguments apply to the shortcode which is `[woothemes_testimonials]` and the template tag, which is `<?php woothemes_testimonials(); ?>`.

== Usage Examples ==

Adjusting the limit and image dimension, using the arguments in the three possible methods:

do_action() call:

`<?php do_action( 'woothemes_testimonials', array( 'limit' => 10, 'size' => 100 ) ); ?>`

woothemes_testimonials() template tag:

`<?php woothemes_testimonials( array( 'limit' => 10, 'size' => 100 ) ); ?>`

[woothemes_testimonials] shortcode:

`[woothemes_testimonials limit="10" size="100"]`

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= The plugin looks unstyled when I activate it. Why is this? =

"Testimonials by WooThemes" is a lean plugin that aims to keep it's purpose as clean and clear as possible. Thus, we don't load any preset CSS styling, to allow full control over the styling within your theme or child theme.

= How do I contribute? =

We encourage everyone to contribute their ideas, thoughts and code snippets. This can be done by forking the [repository over at GitHub](http://github.com/woothemes/testimonials/).
