Fields and Display Views

http://demo.freestyle-joomla.com/products/support-components/testimonials-lite/testimonials

How did you move the name and time to the bottom of the testimonial? Also, I want to have the following fields only:

Name: (how do you remove guest?)
Title:
Company:

How can I add these fields? Thanks!!

Re: Fields and Display Views

Hello

You need to setup a custom template for this. If you goto Components -> Freestyle Testimonials -> Templates. Enable the "Use Custom Template" option, and you will be able to edit the HTML used for display.

The demo site uses:

<div id='{divid}'>
  {moderation}
  <blockquote>
    {body}
    <small>
      {name}{if,website}, {website}{endif}
      @
      {created_nice}
    </small>
  </blockquote>
</div>

The Lite version of Freestyle Testimonials does not support custom fields in the form. This is only available in the version of testimonials within Freestyle Support Portal.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks

Re: Audit Message

Thanks! I was able to customize the look of the testimonials, but how do I customize the fields?

I just want people to be required to post:

Name: (how do you remove guest?)
Title:
Company:



Is that possible?

Re: Fields and Display Views

You can turn the email and website fields off in the settings pages. The only way to add extra fields is to use the version of testimonials in Freestyle Support.

Alternately you could leave the website field enabled, and use the Language Override system (in Extensions -> Language Manager) to change the name of it to Title or Company.

The Guest text can be removed by adding a language override of the key "GUEST" with no text.

Re: Audit Message

You mean in the Joomla language manager? Won't that override the entire site with these changes?

Re: Audit Message

So will this override the entire site? Is that ok to do?

Thanks for the help

Re: Fields and Display Views

It is a global change, but it tends to be quite rare that adding an override effects more than the intended component.

If you wish to just change the text for testimonials, edit the file languages/en-GB/en-GB.com_fst.ini and find the GUEST="Guest" line and change it to GUEST=""

Re: Audit Message

That global change is not going to work, it will screw up other content and forms that use the word website and guest.

Is there any other options? Or this just how it will be? THanks

Re: Fields and Display Views

To just change the text for testimonials, you need to edit the ini file.

Edit the file languages/en-GB/en-GB.com_fst.ini and find the GUEST="Guest" line and change it to GUEST=""

Re: Audit Message

I cant find this:
file languages/en-GB/en-GB.com_fst.ini and find the GUEST="Guest" line and change it to GUEST=""


Do you have any better instructions on how to find this file and how to make this change? Thanks

Re: Fields and Display Views

You need to use a file manager (such as extplorer http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/core-enhancements/file-management/2630) to edit the file. Alternately you can connect using FTP to your site and edit the file that way.

Re: Fields and Display Views

Sorry for the confusion, I was sure that it was there. It looks like it was removed for some reason but not comments as to why.

Can you add the following to the file to remove the guest text:

GUEST=""

Thanks

Re: Audit Message

Very nice.

http://www.symsolutions.com/company/symmetry-solutions-and-solidworks-customer-success

I instead added "Name, Title & Company". Hopefully that will make people enter the info I am looking for.

Thanks! Sweet component.
