The Divi Testimonial Module
How to add, configure and customize the Divi testimonials module.
Testimonials are a great way to encourage trust from your visitors. Using the Divi testimonial module, you can quickly add testimonials to your join & sales pages. testimonials are usually compelling quotes from your customers. Each testimonial has a quote, the name of it’s author, and a link to their website (which is optional). These are great when used in conjunction with the pricing tables module on sales pages.
How to Add a Testimonial Module to Your Page
Before you can add a testimonial module to your page, you will first need to jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi Theme has been installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you are building a new page. Clicking this button will enable the Divi Builder, giving you access to all of the Divi Builder’s modules. Next, click the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in Visual Mode. You can also click the Enable Visual Builder button when browsing your website on the front end if you are logged in to your WordPress Dashboard.
Once you have entered the Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside of Rows. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a row to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s row and section elements.
Locate the testimonial module within the list of modules and click it to add it to your page. The module list is searchable, which means you can also type “testimonial” and then hit enter to automatically find and add the testimonial module! Once the module has been added, you will be greeted with the module’s list of options. These options are separated into three main groups: Content, Design and Advanced.
Use Case Example: Testimonial Section for Product Landing Page
Adding a testimonial section is one of the best ways to promote your product or service. For this example, I will show you how to use the Testimonial Module to create a testimonial section at the bottom of a landing page to promote your product or service. The headline of the testimonial section is “Happy Customers”. It is important to have an effective title that is both creative and to the point. The three testimonials are kept short in a three column layout followed by a CTA button at the bottom of the page.
To add the testimonial section to the page, use the visual builder to add a standard section with a three column row. Then add a testimonial module to the first column of your row.
Update your Testimonial Module Settings with the following:
Author Name: [enter name]
Job Title: [enter title]
Company Name: [enter company]
Content: [enter testimonial content]
Portrait Image URL: [upload 90×90 image]
Quote Icon: Hidden
Use Background Color: NO
Text Color: Light
Text Orientation: Center
Body Font: Roboto Light
Body Font Size: 20px
Body Line Height: 1.5em
Now that you have your first Testimonial Module created, duplicate it twice and drag the duplicated modules to to fill the second and third columns.
Since all of you design settings have carried over to the duplicated modules in the second and third row, all you need to do is go back and update the content for each.
