How to Install Easy Testimonials Pro for WordPress

Gold Plugins > Documentation > Easy Testimonials Pro Documentation > How to Install Easy Testimonials Pro for WordPress


The best way to install Easy Testimonials Pro is directly from the WordPress Plugin Directory. This way you can easily receive updates to Easy Testimonials Pro along with WordPress core.

Once you’ve installed the Easy Testimonials plugin, you’ll then enter your API key to complete the installation.

Please Note: Until you have activated your copy of Easy Testimonials, you will not be able to use the Pro features such as the fading testimonials widget and you will continue to see banner ads.

Step 1: Download the Easy Testimonials plugin

Download from the WordPress Plugin Directory (zip file, plugin page).

Tip: You can also search for “Easy Testimonials” from the Plugins page in your WordPress dashboard, and install Easy Testimonials using WordPress’ built-in plugin installer.

Step 2: Upload the plugin using FTP

Unzip, and use an FTP client to upload the contents of the /easy-testimonials/ folder to your website’s /wp-content/plugins/ directory.

Tip: you may be able to skip this step by uploading using the Plugins > Add New menu in WordPress. Please note, this feature depends on your server’s configuration, and may not be supported on your website.

Step 3: Activate Easy Testimonials through the Plugins menu in WordPress

Once you’ve uploaded the files, click on the the Plugins menu in your WordPress dashboard. In the list of plugins, find Easy Testimonials and then click Activate.

Step 4: Activate Easy Testimonials Pro with your API Key

Now that you’ve activated the plugin, you’ll have a new menu in WordPress named Easy Testimonials Settings. Click on this menu to bring up the Easy Testimonials settings page.

On this page, you’ll see a form for you to enter your API Key, website, and email to activate the Pro plugin. This information should have arrived in your email as soon as you purchased Easy Testimonials Pro, but if you’re having any trouble at all, please contact support and we’ll be happy to help.

Developer License: How To Activate

Developer licenses work a bit differently: instead of entering an API key, you can simply upload the extra plugin you received when you purchased alongside Easy Testimonials Pro, and this will activate your plugin automatically (no need for an API key).

This way you can add the Pro plugin to your version control or your base theme, and not have to worry about managing API keys for each site.

Step 5: Add your Testimonials and Setup a Testimonials Page!

You’ve finished installing the plugin! You’ll most likely want to add some Testimonials now (just click the new Testimonials menu in your WordPress admin), and then setup a page to display your FAQs (just add the [testimonials] shortcode to any post or page).
