HTML for Simple Testimonial Widget

Add the below HTML code inside an “Embed Code” element by replacing the dummy content with your own. The code is for a single testimonials block which will be shown in full width and you can add multiple testimonials just by appending the block code. If you want to show the testimonials in two columns then use “Embed Code” elements side by side and paste the HTML code block inside.

<div class="tm-content">
<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. In ultrices, elit sed faucibus pharetra, diam mauris bibendum orci, sit amet ullamcorper purus dui sit amet augue. Donec aliquet diam ut neque mattis, eu tristique sem rutrum.</p>
</div>
<div class="tm-pic">
<div class="photo"><img src="https://img.webnots.com/2015/08/Testimonial3.jpg" width=60px height=60px>
</div>
<p>Diana Mary</p>
<p>Important person, some Company</p>
</div>

The difference with this widget is that the block of HTML codes will be automatically aligned in a two column layout without the need of using multiple “Embed Code” elements.
