How to Use the Testimonial Elementor Block & Website Shortcode

With the exception of Location Testimonials (or Testimonial hooks for specific lists on your website, the Elementor Testimonial Block is the primary method for rendering Testimonials on your website. With all the Testimonial options we've introduced via a number of FAQs, the Elementor Block may be used in isolation of any Yabber tool to manage the sliders shown your website.

Locate BM Testimonials

  Pictured: Locate the 'BM Elementor' block by searching for 'Testimonials'. Drag and drop the block into any position on your page and the Testimonial options will render. Note that Elementor provides its own Testimonial features, but the default Elementor blocks are steam-driven in nature and do not integrate with Yabber.

The Elementor block will return a Yabber List, a Location List, or a Custom List (the latter is created entirely in Elementor). In each case, you will be required to select a style (with 'Default' the most common), and in the case of Location Lists, you may select the style that was assigned specifically to that List via the Locations module. Whenever you're placing a Location slider, we recommend select the 'Assigned Style' option as this will ensure that any change made to the Location assignments will also alter the style.

  Elementor List Options

The Elementor menu presents three primary list options.

Yabber Testimonial List

The Yabber testimonial List is any list created in Yabber. Before any list is available on your website the lists must be updated.

Yabber Location List

A Location list is intended for a specific location as identified by slug, such as front or first_home_buyers. The slider shown will always reflect the list assigned to that location (it's expected that you'll use location lists in relevant locations... and if a location is required that doesn't exist, you should create a custom location. The location assignment gives you enormous control over the style, Statement, and list.

Custom (Elementor) List

A custom list is built entirely in Elementor and does not reference Yabber. You create sliders by assigning specific social platform categories, or individual testimonials.

  Elementor Style Options

When rendering a slider with Elementor, we have the option of assigning a Yabber style (one created in Yabber), or creating a custom style using the Elementor options. The Elementor options are usually used if you don't have a Yabber subscription or access of any kind.

Elementor Style, Yabber or Custom

  Pictured: When rendering a slider with Elementor, we have the option of assigning a Yabber style (one created in Yabber), or creating a custom style using the Elementor options.

If selecting a Yabber style, you simply select from those styles you have created in Yabber. It is most common to select the 'Default' list. In the case of 'Location Lists', you should generally select the 'Assigned' option - this will ensure that the Location options are always applied to a Location slider.

Elementor Default Styles

  Pictured: If selecting a Yabber style, you simply select from those styles you have created in Yabber. It is most common to select the 'Default' list. In the case of 'Location Lists', you should generally select the 'Assigned' option - this will ensure that the Location options are always applied to a Location slider.

When the custom 'Elementor' style option is selected, the style is assigned back to Elementor rather than Yabber, and styles are created for each occurrence of a Testimonial slider. This is generally discourage as you won't have global control over styles, meaning that you won't be able to change styles on more than one Testimonial slider with a single update.

Elementor Style Options

  Pictured: When the custom 'Elementor' style option is selected, the style is assigned back to Elementor rather than Yabber, and styles are created for each occurrence of a Testimonial slider.

The entire for is conditional in nature in that selecting one field will selectively show other relevant fields.

When selecting changes in Elementor, the preview is shown immediately.

  Testimonial Slider Shortcode

It is generally an uncommon occurrence for any user to find the need to use their own shortcodes. By default, all location sliders built into the framework by default will use a shortcode similar to the following: [bm_testimonial_location id=“front“] - this will render the 'Front Page' slider with associated list and Statement.

The shortcode of [bm_testimonial_slider] with attributes is used to render a standard slider, although the attributes are considerable and complicated, so this particular shortcode is best avoided.

Shortcodes are listed from the Review panel. You will find Location shortcodes linked from the Locations panel.
