I copied it onto here so that lives forever, this is not my own work.

This works like a dream Super simple step by step process just for Squarespace!

http://www.muno.space/code-snippets/rotating-testimonials

First, from the Home menu your Squarespace site, click Settings → Advanced → Code Injection. Once on the Code Injection menu, paste the following code into the textbox titled Header:


<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.3.min.js"></script>

The next thing we want to do is determine the page that we want to post the testimonials on. On the page you choose, click the settings icon and then switch to the Advanced tab. In the box entitled Page Header Code Injection, enter the following code:


<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/ResponsiveSlides.js/1.53/responsiveslides.min.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript">
   $(document).ready(function() {
     $(".rslides").responsiveSlides({
       timeout: 5000,
       pager: true
     });
     $('.rslides_tabs li a').css('background-color', $('figcaption.source').css('color'));
     var elementHeights = $('.rslides li').map(function() {
       return $(this).height();
     }).get();
     var maxHeight = Math.max.apply(null, elementHeights);
     $('.rslides li').height(maxHeight);
   });
 </script> 

You can edit the above code to customize how your slider works. To change the time that each slide stays, increase or decrease the number next to timeout (measured in milliseconds). To remove the dots from under the screen, switch pager from true to false.

Once that is in, we will put in the Custom CSS. By putting the CSS, the slider will look right once we put our information in. To do this, head to the main menu, then go to Design → Custom CSS. In the box, paste in the following code:


.testimonialSlider {
   position: relative;
 }
 .rslides {
   position: relative;
   list-style: none;
   overflow: hidden;
   width: 100%;
   padding: 0;
   margin: 0;
   li {
     -webkit-backface-visibility: hidden;
     position: absolute;
     display: none;
     width: 100%;
     left: 0;
     top: 0;
     &:first-child {
       position: relative;
       display: block;
       float: left;
     }
   }
   img {
     display: block;
     height: auto;
     float: left;
     width: 100%;
     border: 0;
   }
 }
 .rslides_tabs {
     list-style: none;
     -webkit-margin-before: 0;
     -webkit-margin-after: 0;
     -webkit-padding-start: 0;
     padding: 0;
     text-align: center;
       li {
       display: inline;
       padding: 0 10px;
       a {
         text-indent: -9999px;
         overflow: hidden;
         -webkit-border-radius: 15px;
         -moz-border-radius: 15px;
         border-radius: 15px;
         background: #ccc;
         background: rgba(0,0,0, .2);
         display: inline-block;
         _display: block;
         -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 2px 0 rgba(0,0,0,.3);
         -moz-box-shadow: inset 0 0 2px 0 rgba(0,0,0,.3);
         box-shadow: inset 0 0 2px 0 rgba(0,0,0,.3);
         width: 6px;
         height: 6px;
       }
     }
     .rslides_here a {
       background-color: #222;
     }
   }

Now that the styling is in, all that is left is for you to enter your testimonials. First, create a code block. Using the code below, enter your testimonials in place of 'Your Text Here' and your sources in place of 'Your Source Here'. If you want to enter more than 4 testimonials, simply follow the pattern and copy and paste the information with the

<li></li>

tags (including the li). If you want to enter less, just delete the

<li>

sections that you are not using.


<div class="testimonialSlider">
     <ul class="rslides">
       <li>
         <div class="sqs-widget sqs-block-modelsync sqs-block-quote sqs-block quote-block">

Thank you so much! This was awesome! However, would love to know how to make a few tweaks:

  • I want to create a slider with just text (no quotes), so I want to remove the quotes and the the source info (and the line underneath it). How?
  • Could not find how to edit the font type and size (I'm new to coding).
  • Is there a way to make the text actually slide? This fades from text to text.

Thanks!

I'm using this successfully; however, I now seem to have a larger pad between the bottom edge of the text and the next section. I've been reading through cheat sheets to see how I can modify various lines of code but am not having luck. Any help anyone who can provide an answer to this problem would be appreciated. The buffer is present on all sections except the About Us page. Our website is here : https://my-pets-friend.com.

Here's a simpler solution:

1. Create a summary block linked to a "Blog" and set it to display 1 post at a time.

2. Now just make each testimonial be the title of a different blog post, and put the name of who wrote the testimonial as an excerpt.

3. Set the summary block to only display "Title" and "Excerpt." Turn off the "Thumbnail."
