Testimonials With Slick jQuery Demo
Testimonial Slider Using The Slick jQuery Library
This slider will scroll through a number of testimonial excerpts. Each excerpt has a photo, a quote and the person’s name.
In our example we will show 4 excerpts at a time for 4 seconds before the slider moves automatically to the next testimonial. But of course you can have many more testimonials. The slider will progress through them all.
Each testimonial is a post and starts with a quote which is set up as the excerpt for the post using the more tag. The customer’s photo is set up as the featured image.
This Blueprint allows you to show a large number of testimonials in a relatively small space. It’s ideal for a home page. Because it uses the Slick jQuery library – the slider behaves slightly differently than if it had been based on the Owl jQuery library. This slider keeps going looping endlessly when it reaches the last testimonial. See which behaviour you prefer.
