Ninjamonials

NOTE: The version compatible with Joomla 1.5 is available via the "Addons" tab on the left of this page.

Ninjamonials allows you to quickly and easily collect and display testimonials from your site visitors and members.

You can collect plain text testimonials, audio or even video testimonials. The ability to capture testimonials in categories allows you to show people what they need to read when they need to.

Ninjamonials features a simple to use component for managing your testimonials, as well as modules and plugins to display the testimonials around your site.

It also includes a built in re-captcha system, allowing you to keep down or even eliminate automated spam testimonials.

For styling, Ninjamonials includes 6 default CSS style sheets, which are easy to edit to make your own changes to. Or you can even use your template's CSS if you wish. We use the standard P tag nested in a blockquote, which is used in most major templates today.

NinjaMonials is far and away the leading testimonial solution available for Joomla.

Documentation

Basic Setup

Getting Ninjamonials installed is a fairly straightforward process:

  • Install this component
  • Install the rotator module, and/or plugin if desired
  • Install the Admin Notification module if desired
  • You can use the default parameters to get started, or open the settings screen to change the configuration
  • Create a menu item for viewing testimonials and/or adding them

That's it for basic installation. You should now be able to add some testimonials to your site.



Upgrading

Joomla 2.5 users only: If you are upgrading from an earlier version of Ninjamonials to 2.1.0, there is an extra step you need to go through. In Ninjamonials 2.1.0, we switch over from BBCode to HTML. Any testimonials already collected will need to be converted. We built a single-use component that will do the converting for you. You can find it here. Install that component, run it, and then uninstall it immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

I got an error related to the database:

JInstaller::install: SQL Error. DB function failed with error number 1064

How can I solve this?
This is usually caused by a incorrect database engine setting or an outdated MySQLversion.
This should be corrected by your host or you may make the necessary changes within MyPhpAdmin.

Testimonials

I got the subscription for the Ninjamonials component and had a bit of a problem with it showing the videos on the site. I spoke with Daniel who was able to quickly fix the problem and now everything is working great! Will definitely recommend them to anyone else I know who will be needing anything they offer. Great customer service, prompt responses, quick fixes. Awesome!
I wanted to send you a quick note to say how much I love Ninjamonials. I was getting overwhelmed by manually uploading testimonials to my site. Like most Internet marketers, my time is very limited, and I am always on the lookout for economical software tools that will make my job easier and allow me to focus on my business rather than on more clerical tasks. Ninjamonials is quick to install and easy to use. The interface is intuitive, and I am already collecting more testimonials than ever – and without my direct involvement in the process. I love it! I would highly recommend this Joomla extension to anyone who sells online.
