How To Add A Testimonial

Testimonials are a great way to inspire trust and build credibility for your business! If you want more testimonials, we recommend reaching out to business partners, bosses, co-workers, and even friends!

How To Put Testimonials On Your Pages

Now that you’ve added a new Testimonial, you can insert it into the pages of your Carrot site!

Here’s how to do that:

Step 1: Navigate to Content > Pages:

  1. Then, hover over the page that you’d like to add a testimonial to.
  2. Next, click “edit” from the options that will appear below the page’s title.

Step 2: Add a Testimonial Block to the Page:

  1. Find the area of the page where you’d like your Testimonial to be seen. Hover over this area and click the “+” icon that appears to place down a new Block.
  2. Using the search bar, find the “Testimonial” Block that we offer! Click to place it!

Step 3: Choose Which Testimonial to Display:

  1. On the right side of the screen, you’ll see a drop-down menu where you can select which Testimonial will be displayed. If none is selected, there will be a random testimonial displayed from your testimonial list every time the page loads/refreshes.
  2. Once you’ve selected a Testimonial to display, you can then adjust how the Testimonial looks! You can choose between a square and circle style for the image, or choose to hide the image completely.

Step 4: All Set! Click Update and You’re Done!
