How we can create a testimonial slider using jQuery and CSS? Solution: Responsive Testimonial Slider With jQuery and CSS, an Automated Slider which slides automatically.

Basically, The slider shows the testimonial or feedback text submitted by your customers or users. You can see on many services providing websites, there is a section which is what our client says about us. In other words, the testimonial is a kind of review. Some of the reviews are featured by the websites that is testimonial.

Today you will learn to create an automated testimonial slider with responsive design. Most websites use testimonials on their home page for better user attraction. When we buy any services or products first we check reviews, that’s why we should use that on our website. If are using any CMS then are so many plugins available to create this feature. But if you have created your websites from scratch & it’s not based on any content management system then this post will helpful for you.

So, Today I am sharing a Responsive Testimonial Slider with jQuery and CSS. This is an automated or autoplay slider for testimonial based on jQuery. I have used a special jquery based library for creating this review slider because of that library made especially for this function. You can show one or multiple testimonials to visitors, just by changing the values.

If you are thinking now how this automatic testimonials slider actually is, then see the video preview given below.

Responsive Testimonial Slider With jQuery and CSS Source Code

Before sharing source code, let’s talk about it. As you know I have used a special library for creating this program, which is slick.js (get). Slick JS is developed for making slider or carousel. This library is based on jQuery function, that’s why I am putting this post in JavaScript category because of jQuery also a JavaScript library.

JavaScript or jquery has fewer lines of codes, but they are the main part of this slider. Most of the works is created with CSS, like the layout, UIstyling next/previous buttons, etc. I used the font-awesome library to creating the button‘s icon.

There are all the controls in the JS file, I added autoplay: true; you can also disable this by removing or putting false value. After that, you can control how many testimonials want to show on the webpage. For this, there is a command slidesToShow: 2 . After that, there is a command to set how many users review you want to slide on a single slide. That is slidesToScroll: 1 for controlling this. Also, I put a responsive condition.

There are so many things, I can’t explain it in writing. You will understand easily after getting the codes. For creating this program you have to create 3 files. First for HTML, second for CSS, & third for JS. Follow the steps to creating this without any error.

index.html

Create an HTML file named ‘index.html‘ and put these codes given here below.
