When I first wanted to create Testimonials I chose ltw-testimonials. But I had a couple of problems and choose another plugin for other sites – tb-testimonials. Now WooThemes have published their own, and there have been some more published on WordPress.org. So which shall I choose?

Original evaluationIn August 2011, I tried three of them, on three different websites and ALL of them on www.rowlandscastlewebdesign.com (Multi-Site) ltw-testimonials did not appear to work in WordPress Multi-Site. I couldn’t get the Read more link to work in my widgets.
Conclusion – August 2011tb-testimonials became my new choice, replacing ltw-testimonials, since it was done right. See TB-testimonials
New conclusion – March 2013I looked at testimonials-by-woothemes briefly before developing my own oik-testimonials. My new plugin is built with the oik API (in oik) and uses oik-fields for handling additional fields, which are defined using Custom Post Type (CPT) meta data. Version 0.1 is now available from oik. I haven’t looked at testimonials-widget. It appears to be both popular and complicated.
Update – May 2014A year on and I’ve seen people recommending it the testimonials-widget plugin so I thought I’d take a look myself. Brief comments: Comparing testimonials widget to oik-testimonials
- It’s very popular
- It’s similar to oik-testimonials in that it exposes the advanced selection of the content to display via shortcode parameters.
- It’s probably got more code and does more than you really need.
- It’s extendable through action hooks and filters, whereas oik is extendable using the oik-fields and oik-types plugins.
- It’s got a couple of nice features not in the oik solution; auto display of fields on single post view.
