When to use the Testimonial component

Use the Testimonial component to add a quote that supports or highlights content on a Case study page.

Finding the component

To find the component:

  1. Open the drop-down menu under 'Drag and drop components'.
  2. Select 'Testimonial'.
  3. Click 'Add component'.

The Testimonial component will appear beneath 'Component(s) currently in use'.

You can add up to three Testimonial components to a page.

To add your quote:

  1. Paste or type the text into the 'Quote' field - make sure it makes sense as a standalone sentence.
  2. Add the name of the person who made the statement to the 'Attribution' field.
  3. In the 'Description' field, include the job title of the person quoted if they're a member of staff or the course if they're a student or alumni.
  4. Use the 'Year of graduation' field if the person quoted is a student or alumni - use their predicted year of graduation if they're still studying at Bath.

Things to avoid

Don't use quotes that aren't related to the rest of the content on the page.

Don't use quotes from people who weren't involved in the activities described in the case study. You can use testimonials from more than one person though. For example, on a Case study about a student taking a placement year, you could include one testimonial from the student and one from their employer.

Avoid using quotes that only state facts. Try to find quotes that give someone's opinion.

Moving your content around the page

You can drag and drop the Testimonial to reorder the components on a page.

Click 'Collapse this section' to minimise a Testimonial component while you work on other areas of the page. The component will still appear on the preview and published pages if you collapse part of the template.
