For this tutorial we will be using the Testimonial Rotator plugin found here:
With the plugin installed and activated you want to go under Testimonials, Add Rotator to set it up. You select how you want the testimonial carousel to look in terms of animation, duration, showing/hiding, and more. Once you select that including your theme, click the publish button to save your changes.
With the display chosen, you now need to add the testimonials on your site, go under Testimonials, Add New and start adding the information for each of the fields you want to display. These include things like name, star rating, author information, and more. Add however many you would like to include and publish each one for them to be visible in the slider.
Now you should be able to go under Testimonials, All Rotators page and copy the User Rotator Settings shortcode and add it to the post or page to display it how you set it up in the settings.

I have a question about headers. I know I can have as many as needed and I can set a URL link for them, but I can only have one URL, so all headers have to point to the same one. Is there a way or a plugin that allows for numerous rotating headers each pointing to a different URL? This would be useful for highlighting sponsors, upcoming events, special announcements, etc.
Thank you for your channel!!
Normally that would be done in widgets but you would normally want to take a look at sliders for what you’re wanting:
