How do you install the plugin?


Please check Documentation > Installation section. Basically you need to disable caching, log out, upload extension source and login again.

If you will have any issues with setup – just drop a comment and we will try to resolve it.


Why is it putting testimonials on a secured page? It says it is /testimonial in the link but when I click on it, it goes to https://www.mysite.tld/index.php/testimonials/

Hi ckad79

Not sure about this issue. Could you send ftp and admin data via profile page ?



I am interested in this module, but how are clients prompted to fill in a testimonial?

Does it auto-generate an email from them with a link to fill in?

Thank you

I did already :)

You misunderstood me :)

I mean that i reply via email. Please check it

Hi, I just purchased TESTIMONIALS. Is there any way to change the heading from TESTIMONIALS to GALLERY? I need to use that as thhe Heading. Also, can I change the url path to also read Gallery, instead of testimonials? Nice extension. Thanks much. ANN

Hi Ann

1. To change extension texts you need to edit language file – app\locale\en_US\Nwdthemes_Testimonials.csv

Each line contain a pair of strings, you need to update second one.

"Testimonials","Testimonials" to "Testimonials","Gallery"

2. To change url you need to update two files

- app\code\community\Nwdthemes\Testimonials\etc\config.xml
Look for <frontName>testimonials</frontName>

- app\design\frontend\base\default\layout\nwdthemes\testimonials.xml
Look for <url>testimonials</url>

Any ideas on how to add a CAPTCHA function to the review form?.. I am getting bombarded with spam and I have spent much time unsuccessfully trying to add a CAPTCHA function to the form. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. Cheers!


You can try to use reCaptcha for it: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/index.html

As an example you can take a look at this free extension that adds it to contact form: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/contacts-form-captcha.html

If you want we can do this custom work for you through Upwork. It will cost $50. If your are interested in it please email to nwdthemes@gmail.com and we will proceed with it.

Thanks a lot,

I get a 404 page not found when I go to NWDThemes -> Testimonials -> Configuration

I reflushed all cache (in fact its disabled) and Reindexed all pages


Try to log out and login again. It should refresh access control.

Regards, NWDthemes

That was easy :) Thank you !

Glad you manage to resolve it :)

Hello, is there a way to edit the generated testimonials page as a CMS Page? If that’s not possible, how can I add this extension as a widget to a custom CMS Page?


1. There is no way to edit testimonials as CMS page. You can either edit listing template – app\design\frontend\base\default\template\nwdthemes\testimonials\index.phtml or add some cms blocks to the template and edit it via admin.

2. If you want to use testimonials in CMS page you could use such shortcode
{{block type="testimonials/list" name="testimonials.list" template="nwdthemes/testimonials/index.phtml" }}
Demo link – http://demo.nwdthemes.com/company

Thanks a lot,

I can only show LIST display with this short code {{block type=”testimonials/list” name=”testimonials.list” template=”nwdthemes/testimonials/index.phtml” }} Even though I have SLIDE select as Display Type. I have a feeling its with the shortcode. I tried replacing list to slide but no avail. Please help

I have checked it. It is sliding if you have more than one slide. It tries to load number of slides that is set in extension configuration for sidebar ( NWDthemes > Testimonials > Configuration. Check Testimonials Sidebar section )

Regarding loading it randomly – it could be done. Take approx. one hour. We charge $55 USD per hour. Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks a lot,

I just purchased your Testimonials extension, but it causes an error in my checkout.

I have a screenshot if that helps.

Can you advise what you think the problem might be?

Do I have to put a licence number or file somewhere?

The error says Base table or vew not found: 1146 Table ‘new_showersealuk.nwdthemes_testimonials’ doesn’t exist.

My email address is jc@hbis.co.uk




It sounds like you did not follow install instructions. To fix your issue please do following:

1. Go to System > Cache Management and disable all cache types.

2. Logout from admin

3. Remove nwdthemes_testimonials_setup row from core_resource table using PhpMyAdmin or by running this MySQL query:
DELETE FROM `core_resource` WHERE `code` = 'nwdthemes_revslider_setup';
If you are using tables prefix – it should be
DELETE FROM `myprefix_core_resource` WHERE `code` = 'nwdthemes_revslider_setup';

4. Login to Magento Admin panel and navigate to ” NWDthemes > Testimonials > Manage Testimonials”. If page open without errors – it means that db tables successfully created.

Thanks a lot,

I have installed the extension and it appears in the backend, but the manage testimonials page is blank. Also, nothing has changed on the frontend. Have you run across this issue before?

Thanks, Bryan

setting error display didn’t provide any results on either the frontend or the backend. I went into var/logs and found the following in the exception.log file:

2017-03-29T06:20:07+00:00 ERR (3): exception ‘Mage_Core_Exception’ with message ‘Invalid block type: TM_Testimonials_Block_Adminhtml_Testimonials’ in /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/Mage.php:595 Stack trace: #0 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Layout.php(495): Mage::throwException(‘Invalid block t…’) #1 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Layout.php(437): Mage_Core_Model_Layout->_getBlockInstance(‘testimonials/ad…’, Array) #2 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/community/Nwdthemes/Testimonials/controllers/Adminhtml/NwdtestimonialsController.php(32): Mage_Core_Model_Layout->createBlock(‘testimonials/ad…’) #3 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Controller/Varien/Action.php(418): Nwdthemes_Testimonials_Adminhtml_NwdtestimonialsController->indexAction() #4 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Controller/Varien/Router/Standard.php(254): Mage_Core_Controller_Varien_Action->dispatch(‘index’) #5 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Controller/Varien/Front.php(172): Mage_Core_Controller_Varien_Router_Standard->match(Object(Mage_Core_Controller_Request_Http)) #6 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/App.php(365): Mage_Core_Controller_Varien_Front->dispatch() #7 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/Mage.php(684): Mage_Core_Model_App->run(Array) #8 /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/index.php(83): Mage::run(’’, ‘store’) #9 {main}

I also found the following in the system.log file: 2017-03-29T06:20:07+00:00 ERR (3): Recoverable Error: Argument 1 passed to Mage_Adminhtml_Controller_Action::_addContent() must be an instance of Mage_Core_Block_Abstract, boolean given, called in /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/community/Nwdthemes/Testimonials/controllers/Adminhtml/NwdtestimonialsController.php on line 32 and defined in /homepages/5/d631606685/htdocs/Magento1/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Controller/Action.php on line 120

Another oddity I found was that when it installed the tables into MySQL it added the table prefix twice, so you had tables like mdb1_mdb1_matestimonial_entity. I went into phpMyAdmin and renamed all of the tables to remove the extra prefix, but it didnt seem to change anything on the website.

I hope this helps.


Please provide admin / ftp credentials to nwdthemes@gmail.com . We will check the issue.

Email has been sent, and to answer your previous question, yes I followed all the install instructions with cache, compilation, etc.

I noticed another user asked about making this module show at random. I am interested in showing one testimonial at random (no slide or changing). Thank you!


It can be done as a paid customization. Please email to nwdthemes@gmail.com if you are interested.

Thanks a lot,

Email sent, thank you!

Hi, I recently upgraded my magento to (Latest). However when I click on Quickview, I am getting the error ” Fatal error: Call to undefined method Mage_Core_Controller_Request_Http::isRedirect() in /home/XXXXXX/public_html/app/code/community/Nwdthemes/Nwdajax/controllers/ViewController.php on line 39”. I am using the original RWD theme from Magento CE Do you know how can I fix this? Thank you


Are you talking about testimonials or ajax cart extensions? As I can see from the error message – it is ajax cart.

Please post the comment on appropriate extension page from the account where you purchased the file and we will help you further on your issue.

Thanks a lot,
