Step 1: Log into your website back end
You can access your website back end via https://YOURWEBSITE/wp-admin
Your username should be your first and last name - all lowercase & one word.
Eg. If your name was Tina Davis, your username would be tinadavis
If that username doesn't work, click the green icon in the bottom-right of this screen to be connected with our team. Let us know that you're after your username, and we'd be happy to send it over!
If this is your first time accessing the back end, or if you have forgotten your password, just click the reset password button. The link to reset your password will be sent to the email address associated with your Avenue account.
Step 2: Go to your "Testimonials" subpage via the navigation bar
Once logged into the back end of your website, navigate to the "Testimonials" subpage.
Step 3: Click "Edit Page" at the top of the page
Step 4: Add a new paragraph block
Click the paragraph at the top of the page, before the first word, and hit the return button on your keyboard. This should create a new blank space between the title and the first paragraph.
From there, click the black➕ button, and add a new paragraph block.
🌟 Tip: If the paragraph block isn't displayed, search "paragraph" in the field at the top of the pop-up.
Step 5: Paste or type your testimonial into the new paragraph block
❗️ Be sure to add quotation marks (if necessary) to match the testimonials already on the page.
Step 6: Add a second paragraph block below
Hover over the space between the paragraph block you just added and the one below it. A black ➕ should appear in the centre. Click it to add another paragraph block.
Step 7: Add the person's name
Paste or type your client's name into the new paragraph block.
🌟 Tip: To bold the name, highlight the text and click the B
Step 8: Add a line to separate the new testimonial from the one below it
Hover over the space between the client's name and the testimonial below it, and click the black ➕ that appears. Click "separator" to add a horizontal line.
🌟 Tip: If the separator block isn't displayed, search "separator" in the field at the top of the pop-up.
Step 9: Repeat steps 4-8 to add another testimonial
Alternatively, you can paste multiple testimonials into a single paragraph block, and format the text accordingly!
Step 10: Click "Update"
In the top, right-hand corner of the page.
Step 11: View the updated page to ensure it looks 👌
To view the page, click the 3 dots in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and click "Fullscreen Mode."
Taking the page out of fullscreen mode will make a blue bar visible at the top of the page.
In that blue bar, click "View Page."
And that's it! 🎉 If you spot anything that needs tweaking, just click "Edit Page" again and adjust as needed!
❗️ Please note: Adding testimonials to the homepage is trickier, as we've built that page with custom code & specialty widgets. If you'd like any new testimonials added to that page, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or click the green icon in the bottom right-hand corner to send a request to our team over live chat!
