Step two

You will name the blog testimony or something along those lines.

You will then be brought here inside that page where you add blog posts.

You will click on the PLUS SIGN next to the title Testimony Demo and add a blog post

A box will pop-up like you see on the left. On the CONTENT tab all you have to enter in is the title. Which will be something like “Testimony 1” as you may want to add a few to distinguish between them.

Step seven

Once you have done that, the summary box will have the content register automatically.

You will now work your way to the LAYOUT TAB and have it looking exactly like the screenshot. You can have a header text if you want but I would avoid that and add a text block on top instead that says “Client Love, testimonies etc”.

Have 1 item per row, and text alignment centred.

step eight

Go to the DISPLAY TAB and have the settings exactly like the image on the left. However the only thing that may change for you is the Number of items, this will change depending on how many testimonies you add.

Then click apply and save and you have your testimony slider.
