There are 7 elements included in this module:
  • 1. Submit/Enter Testimonial (where your customers send you a testimonial). (click here for an example/demo)
  • 2. Email Notification (it emails the merchant a copy of submitted testimonials as soon as they're submitted by your site visitors).
  • 3. Side Panel Admin Count - The admin left panel stats box shows a count of the new (ie unprocessed, newly-submitted) testimonials with a link to easily view/edit the testimonials.
  • 4. Approval (where you flag relevant testimonials as approved for publication on your site).
  • 5. Listing (a screen that lists all your approved testimonials for your customers to see). (click here for an example/demo)
  • 6. Side Panel List (where you display a sample set of your testimonials in your side panel). (click here for an example/demo - the side panel box for testimonials is on the bottom of the left panel near the end of the page)
  • 7. In-Page Testimonial List (where you display a set of your testimonials on a main page, such as the home page, via a template field or a function call). (click here for an example/demo


All of these aspects are configurable, but work well out-of-the-box with the default options.


Technical/Developer Information:
Highly configurable/tweakable. Most things can be tweaked by changing the main config file, other aspects can easily be tweaked by changing config files which are split-out to perform specific functions. Amongst the configuration options are:
  • Which fields are shown on the entry screen.
  • Which fields are mandatory on the entry screen.
  • The field labels on the entry screen.
  • The page heading on the entry screen.
  • The page heading and other text on the list screen.
  • The number of records to display on the side-panel diplay.
  • The order of the testimonials on the side-panel diplay (randomly picked items shown by default).
  • Email Notification to merchant can be switched on/off.
  • Email Notification can be sent to any email address you want (ie doesn't have to be your generic vpasp "xemail" address).


There are many other configuration options, and the overall format can easily be tweaked too.

For those on VPASP V7, you can use the VPASP layout manager to add your testimonials box to your side panel (as this is done via the BYZ162 module which is included within the BYZ066 module)
