8 Element Display Combinations in Divi’s Testimonial Module

Divi’s testimonial module includes several optional elements that you can use or disable. These elements are easy to use and choosing them in different combinations can create some interesting designs. In this post, we’ll look at 8 element display combinations in Divi’s testimonial module to help you decide which elements are best for your needs.

We’ll create two versions, one with a white background and one with a black background, of each combination.

Let’s get started!

Overview of the Divi Testimonial Module Elements

Let’s look at the elements within the testimonial module. Each element has styling options that we’ll see later. Also, each of these elements can be used or not. We’ll also see them used in various combinations. Each of the elements includes settings for screen sizes and the hover state.

Testimonial Module Author

Author is the name of the person that wrote the testimonial. It appears under the body content and is used by default. Its font is the largest by default. If you don’t want to display the author’s name, simply delete the dummy content and leave the field blank.

Testimonial Module Author

Job Title

Job Title is the author’s job title. It’s useful for B2B (business to business) companies where the author’s job title is relevant to the testimonial. This field is blank by default. To use it, simply add text to the field. It appears under the author’s name, and it’s left-aligned.

Testimonial Module Job Title

Company

Company is the name of the company the author works for. This is also useful for B2B testimonials. It’s blank by default and appears under the author’s name. Company is placed to the right of Job Title if it’s also used.

Testimonial Module Company

Content

The body content area is a TinyMCE editor that can use HTML, inline CSS, media, etc. It includes the Visual and Text tabs and all the standard TinyMCE settings. It appears in the largest area in the middle of the module. It’s extremely versatile.

Testimonial Module Body Content

The example below shows the content with a Heading 2, body content, and an image. You can include anything that can go into a TinyMCE editor, such as videos, shortcodes, HTML, etc.

Testimonial Module Body Content

Image

The image displays a photo (or logo) of the author. It’s placed to the left of the content. It’s circular by default, but you can style the border.

Testimonial Module Image

Quote Icon

The quote icon displays a quotation mark within a circle. This is enabled by default, but you can disable it if you want. You can adjust the size and change the color of the icon and its background independently.

Style the Divi Testimonial Module

Now, let’s look at some of the styling options. We’ll style the Divi testimonial module using the styling from the free Scooter Rental Layout Pack that’s available within Divi. We’ll create a white and a black version. Both will use the same content and we’ll make changes to both for the element display combinations.

My Testimonial Module Content

Here’s a look at my example module’s content. I’m using generic names and dummy text. I’m adding a title and styling it with inline CSS and adding three thumbnail images. The author’s image is 1117×629. I’ll use this same content for all the display combinations.

For reference, here’s the inline HTML with CSS I’m using for the title. It adds padding to the title. When we style the black module, we’ll add color.

  • Code:
    <h3 style="padding: 25px 0px 25px 0px;"><strong>Your content goes here.</strong></h3>

Display Combinations in Divi's Testimonial Module

We now have two testimonial modules that we can use to display various combinations of elements.

Divi Testimonial Module Display Combination 1

Our first combination uses the Author’s Name and the Quote Icon. These are the default settings of the testimonial module.

For our second combination, I’ve removed the Author’s Name and Quote Icon, so it doesn’t display any of the elements. This is only ideal if the information is provided in the body content.
