  1. Dear sir,
    I tried your rsmonial that is very effective. I am just trying to develop site over local server. Im also looking star rating system with review or comment. Can rsmonial has that functionality? Yes, so how can use?
    Please reply asap
    Glad to hear from you!


    • Unfortunately the rating system is currently not implemented in RSMonials. So you can not able to get rating system out of the box.

  2. how to change the order of testimonials? By default order is in this way,latest one comes first but i want to change the order.Is it possible? Let me know. Thank you

    • Testimonials are automatically sorted by “Date of Posting”. So if you wish to Re-Order your Testimonials then edit any testimonial from admin panel and change the “Date of Posting” as per your sorting needs.

  3. Is it possible for me to rename the “Testionials” title on the testimonials page? I’d like it to read “Guest Book”. I didn’t see an option to do so in the settings. Thanks!!

      • First thank you for the quick response. I am using Version 2.0 as my Joomla is 2.5. So, is there a way to remove “Powered by link”. Also, how do i solve the following:

        1. When a user submits a testimony. I want to display a confirmation message such as “Thank you for sharing your testimony” without the submission form being displayed.
        2. I would like to display some message in the submission form such as “Testimonies are not published immediately after submission. They are first reviewed before publishing”. When i do this from the “Language File”…the same message is displayed in the “Show testimonials” form. Is there a way to display this message only in the “Submission Form”

        Thank you.

        • Version 2.0 for Joomla 2.5 is also updated. Please download the new files and use it in your website. This will remove the “powered by” link.

          Unfortunately the other 2 options are not available.

  4. Hi
    I would like to be able to change the following:

    ‘Your input is important to us. Please provide your valuable feedback. Here are some testimonials from our clients:’

    Is there anyway that I can do this within the component element.

    • Go to “Joomla Admin” => “Components” => “RSMonials” => “Language File” and then edit the respective language file as per your needs.

      Please Note: Do it carefully, maintain the proper format of Joomla language file.

  5. HI ! and thanks for this component !!
    just a question : is it possible to manage testimonials in order to display different content by language ?

  6. I like this component very much, I tested it at localhost. It’s pretty awesome and fulfilled my desired of testimonial component.
    Unfortunately, my site is now running in joomla 3, so I can’t use this lovely component.
    I also found out that all of rswebsols’ extensions are not yet suitable for joomla 3.
    Hopefully, the developer is willing and kind enough to update this extension and related modules.
    Thank you very much for making all of your extension to be non commercial.

  7. Hello. I use Joomla 2.5 in one of my web sites. I receive lots of emails related to Testimonial. But only a few of them are real. I mean a few of them are related to posts in Testimonial. please help me with this issue. Thanks.

  8. Hello,

    I have been using RSMonials (version 2.0) for some time now, always with ReCaptcha enabled. Since some time I am receiving a ridiculous amount of spam. Is there anything I can do to avoid this?

    Thank you so much in advance!

    Regards, Annika.

    • Unfortunately no other spam protection option is available currently. Our several customers already notifying us that ReCaptcha is also not working for some websites. We are already implementing some other options in our next version. It will release soon.

      • Hello Souvik,

        Thanks for your reply. Can you give me any information on when new release will become available? It’s becoming really urgent as I have already removed over 30 spam testimonials today..(!)

        Thanks again, Annika.

        • It is hard to say a tentative date, but it will take some time to release. Due to work overload our development team is not getting enough time to complete it fast. But they will surely try their best to finish it quickly. Please be patience. Sorry for the inconvenience.

          • I will probably have to look for something else, as I am receiving about 150 spam messages daily and can’t keep on removing them manualy..

            Thanks for the info!

            • Annika,

              I too am frustrated with this issue.

              My temporary solution was to just change the admin_email in the RSmonial settings to a new email account on the host. I check it twice a week for any real testimonials.

              Or set admin_email_alert to false.


  9. Hi

    Thanks for the component. In the scroller module I am getting ‘undefined’ under the first testimonial (there is only one currently) is there are way to remove this?

    • When you have only one testimonial then use “RSMonials Module” instead of “RSMonials Scroller”. When you will get more than one testimonials then enable the “Scroller” module.

  10. Hello, BTW Amazing Product…I have purchased your license version of RSmonial and I need way to have the scrolling module scroll from left to right instead of up. Can you direct me to where I can find this code and where can I put this code in the existing files. Thanks in advance

    • Unfortunately left to right or right to left scrolling option is not currently implemented in RSMonials Scroller module. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

  11. I try to plug in joomla 2.5.x
    but why i can’t in pairs?
    such Virus?
    out an error message like this

    Security Alert

    The file you are uploading was rejected by the server.
    It probably contents viruses or trojans that can damage your website

    Do not attempt to upload it again as your IP address may be blocked.

    • As our RSMonials free version is contains some encrypted code, your server’s security system may be treating it as a security vulnerability. But actually there is no security issue. So to get a solution if it is possible by you to add RSMonials in the safe list in your server’s antivirus program please do that. Otherwise you can purchase a un-encrypted powered by link free copy of RSMonials from our website.

  12. Hi Das,

    I have just installed 2.0 to my Jommla 2.5.3. and I cannot get the front end to allow users to submit testimonials. RSmonials ‘settings’ tab does not provide and option to display “Testimonial Submission Form”. I can only add testimonials in the back end and then they only appear in the module. Not in the main body of my site. I followed step 7 of your instructions and I have created the RSmonials menu item. I tried all the “what to show” settings but still no menu item appears in my website. I’ve made sure everything is set to public. And in RSmonials settings I made sure login_to_submit_testimonial = false.

    • The default captcha is not too strong. easycalccheckplus captcha system is still not implemented. Please use ReCaprcha for now. We will try to implement more captcha system in our next release.

  13. I’ve selected the “Show only the Submission Form”, yet I still get this message at the top of the form:

    “Your input is important to us. Please provide your valuable feedback. Here are some testimonials from our clients:”

    Where do I amend this to omit the last sentence?

    Thank you for a great extension.


    • 1. To disable this paragraph go to “Joomla Admin” => “Components” => “RSMonials” => “Settings” and then set “show_desc” to “false”.

      2. To edit this paragraph go to “Joomla Admin” => “Components” => “RSMonials” => “Language File” and then edit the respective language file as per your needs.

      • Thanks, Souvik. It worked.

        One more thing… is there a way for the administrator of the site to manage submitted testimonials from the front-end? My client isn’t technically inclined, so I’m trying to avoid her going to the Joomla back-end, if possible.

        Thanks again.


        • Unfortunately front-end administration option is currently not available for RSMonials. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

    • Set “admin_email_alert” to “true”. This option is available under “Settings” tab of RSMonials.

  14. I am trying this extension with Joomla V1.7.5 , and I Just get an empty page from the menu item where this compoent is called???
    my template is JA travale from joomlart.
    Thank you for any help

  15. Hi,

    Awesome component, i’ve used it for a while with a smile on ma face:D But one question, does it support sh404sef?

    Thanks! Great work, i will test 2.0 soon…

    Best regards,


    • Although this component do not have inbuilt support of sh404sef, but it is very easy to configure the URL structure of this extension under sh404sef.

  16. Every time I install the component it breaks my admin menu, every time I try to install anything afterwards i get this error:
    JTableMenu: :_getNode Failed –
    Error building Admin Menus

    only happens after installing RSmonials
    the RSmonials doesnt seem to work well either, menu items that point to the form do not work.
    I think this needs some more work
