Starting with BNE Testimonials Pro version 2.7. API platforms such as Facebook, Yelp, Google, etc. can now be shown using a single shortcode instead of multiple ones. In addition, the order can be set to random using the
orderby="rand" option. This is a great benefit for those that use more than one review website and want to show all of them together within a single slider, masonry grid, or list.
Therefore, instead of this: (two individual displays)
It can now be this: (one combined display)
And of course, it works with the Badge shortcode as well. The below badge is using the API to pull in the total and rating of Yelp, Facebook, and Google for this business and calculating the combined total and average. Before you would have had to do this manually or display each one individually using the API.
We’re excited to bring this enhancement to the BNE Testimonials Pro and we hope you will enjoy it as well. Information about how to use this new feature is located in the plugin help page within the WP admin and added to the support docs here.
