BNE Testimonials Pro - WordPress Testimonials and Reviews
BNE Testimonials PRO is a WordPress testimonial plugin that adds easy to use testimonials and reviews anywhere on your website. Uses featured images to display your reviewer’s photo or perhaps a company logo, default visual editor to craft your reviews however you like, and 3 additional fields that provide a tagline, such as their company name, website URL, and a 5-star ratings. In addition, your testimonials include the schema.org review markup.
Enjoy displaying your testimonials with 4 different layouts each with 4-5 different themes including custom styling.

Take Testimonials, Custom Style, Themes, and Layouts
Testimonials can be added manually or by using a front end form. You can also pull in reviews from other platforms such as Google and Yelp. With all of this, displaying the testimonials is important as well and we made sure you have a handful of themes, and layouts to choose from.
The testimonials API opens your public testimonials to the WordPress REST API. What that means, if enabled, other websites or apps can query testimonials from your website and display them on theirs. This is no different than what the REST API already provides with pages and blog post.
An example use for this would be a multisite network or external mirrored websites where you have a main website with the testimonials and all the child sites need to also display the same testimonials. Beforehand, you would need to export and import your testimonials into each child/external site and routinely update each one. With the API, the child sites always display the current set from the main website.
API Review Platforms
Show Your Business Reviews from Facebook, Google, Yelp and Yellow Pages. Using the API of these providers, your reviews are always updated. No need to manually add them to your site. All layouts and themes are available to use. Some providers require their specific style (star color) and branding.
API Platforms Requirements: Facebook, Google, and Yellow Pages requires an API or token key from their sites. Steps on how to obtain a token/API key are available on our support site.
Note that Yellow Pages within the USA is the only one that provides API access.
API Note: Some API platforms limit the number of testimonials shown. Google and Yellow Pages allows up to five, Yelp allows up to three. For Yellow Pages family of websites, only the US version (yellowpages.com) provides API access.
Review snippets within Google search are based on the schema type used and the type of website they are on. Not all schema types will qualify for stars to show within Google search results.
Google API: Requires your business to have a physical address and not a service area business.
Facebook API: You must be an admin of the Facebook page. Facebook also does not provide star ratings (1-5) for recommend/not recommended reviews
