Testimonials on Finance Child Theme

I noticed that the “Testimonials” widget in the “Finance Child Theme” does not scroll/roll among the testimonials automatically.


Hello there,

Testimonials carousel in Finance designed uniquely and stops autoscroll. To enable it, you’ll need to do the below steps:

  1. Install and activate the TC Custom JavaScript plugin
  2. Go To Appearance > Custom JavaScript
  3. Paste the following code into the provided box

      if ( $().owlCarousel && $('.widget_sydney_testimonials .roll-testimonials').length ) {
          $('.widget_sydney_testimonials .roll-testimonials').owlCarousel({
              items: 2,
              itemsDesktop: [3000,2],
              itemsDesktopSmall: [1400,2],
              itemsTabletSmall: [768,1],
              itemsMobile: [360,1],
              autoPlay: $('.roll-testimonials').data('autoplay')


  1. Update

You’d have to clear any applied cache as it usually prevents new code addition to take effect immediately in the front end. https://codex.wordpress.org/I_Make_Changes_and_Nothing_Happens

I’ll report about this to our developer and see if there’ll be permanent autoscrolling testimonials in the future.
