FAQ – RSMonials (Text & Picture is not aligned correctly)

Extension Name: RS-Monials | From: Agne

Subject: Text around image

Agne: I have been using your component and I love it. One this that bothers me: is it possible to make text wrap around the picture in testimonial? Now the text is below the picture and it takes a lot of space. And I don’t know why, but it is shown article title on the page. I removed all default settings in joomla, that it wouldn’t be show, but it is still there. Maybe I should change something in css fail to make it disappear? I would appreciate your help!

Support Team: Thanks for your email. There should be some css issue in your website. If you provide us the URL where we can check the problem then we can provide you the exact solution.

Agne: Thank you for your replay. URL is: ###—HIDDEN—###

Support Team: Please add this CSS code at the end of the CSS file: .RSWS_testi_main td { vertical-align:top !important; }

Agne: Oh, it worked! Looks lovely. Thanks a lot! And what about the issue with the title? Is it possible to hide it?

Support Team: OK, Just add this CSS code again at the end of the CSS file: #main-content div.item-page { display:none !important; }

Agne: Again, thank you for your help! Everything works just fine. Have a lovely day!

  1. Hi,
    I really liked the RSmonials scroller module that I can put on home page and then link to dedicated menu.

    I have applied the scroller module to a “span3” position but the module follows a fixed width and height hence on a small screen it looks very bad. I would like it to fit inside span3. I have modified the php to apply width:100% but the text still overflows.

    Is it possible to make scroller module responsive please?


    • It can be done by adding some custom css code. If you provide your website URL then we can review it and can try to give you a quick solution.

      • Thanks Souvik..website still under work.. I will publish it to a sub-domain and maybe share.
        If you can give me some pointers like instead of setting fixed height and width in module parameters how to make it use “span 3” class default css and fit would be great.
        May be module class suffix which should work but my initial try failed as may be I missed a trick or something.

        Thanks again

      • Hi Souvik,
        Here is the URL http://test.zingyfood.ch/index.php/en/, scroller module somehow now is also not able to show the testimonials that are added under component.
        Also I noticed that the component shows testimonial under image in mobile screen rather than to the right of image icon.

        Currently that’s the only module that’s causing me headache’s due to non-responsiveness, any help is much appreciated.


        • Somehow the apostrophe ( ‘ ) used in one testimonials is causing the error.

          Please edit the testimonial & replace the apostrophe ( ‘ ) by back quote ( ` ) and then save it. Then test your website again. Hopefully this will start displaying testimonials in the module.

          Once you fix this please let us know and we will again review your website.

          • Thanks Souvik for the quick reply, it did solve the issue. Quite strange though as I had that character since beginning and scroller was working.
            Anyways you can check the scroller now, if you re-size browser the scroller frame goes out of container.
            Really appreciate your expert advise.

        • In your template there are 4 kind of viewports that is managing the responsive display. So you need to add your custom css code (i.e. width, height, max-width, max-height etc…) for the “RSMonials Scroller” like below:

          @media only screen and (min-width: 1200px) {
          .rsmsc_scroller_class { /* YOUR CSS CODE HERE */ }
          .rsmsc_scroller_class .innerDiv { /* YOUR CSS CODE HERE */ }

          @media only screen and (min-width: 980px) and (max-width: 1199px) {
          .rsmsc_scroller_class { /* YOUR CSS CODE HERE */ }
          .rsmsc_scroller_class .innerDiv { /* YOUR CSS CODE HERE */ }

          @media only screen and (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 979px) {
          .rsmsc_scroller_class { /* YOUR CSS CODE HERE */ }
          .rsmsc_scroller_class .innerDiv { /* YOUR CSS CODE HERE */ }

          @media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
          .rsmsc_scroller_class { /* YOUR CSS CODE HERE */ }
          .rsmsc_scroller_class .innerDiv { /* YOUR CSS CODE HERE */ }

          • Thanks Souvik.
            I used the following but no effect on the height of the scroller module. Width for now I have worked around by changing mod_rsmonialscroller.php to have width in % instead of px and is adjusting fine now. – width: “.$width_RSMSC.”%;

            Any ideas on how to adjust height? I specified the height to be really small on purpose to see if he shrinks but it doesn’t.

            @media only screen and (min-width: 1200px) {
            .rsmsc_scroller_class { width:100%;height:100px; }
            .rsmsc_scroller_class .innerDiv { width:100%;height:100px; }

            @media only screen and (min-width: 980px) and (max-width: 1199px) {
            .rsmsc_scroller_class { width:100%;height:50px; }
            .rsmsc_scroller_class .innerDiv { width:100%;height:50px; }

            @media only screen and (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 979px) {
            .rsmsc_scroller_class { width:100%;height:20px; }
            .rsmsc_scroller_class .innerDiv { width:100%;height:20px; }
            @media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
            .rsmsc_scroller_class { width:100%;height:10px; }
            .rsmsc_scroller_class .innerDiv { width:100%;height:10px; }


          • Ignore me.. it worked.. had to remove the height property being set in mod_rsmonialscroller.php – removed “height: “.$height_RSMSC.”px;”

  2. hi,
    i am using joomla2.5.9 with rsmonials 2.0 version.Actually my problem is rs monials are displaying out of my component div so that my site structure is disturbed on testimonials page.

    i am displaying testimonials using main menu->menu item type->rs monials( displaying using rsmonials component)

    Please Let me know how can i display all my testimonials within component div instead of out of component div.

    Thank You,

    • Actually when you are using the menu manager to create the menu item of RSMonials then by default it should display under the main component section of your template. May be some-how in your case it is not working so. If you provide the URL where we can review the problem then we can able to give you a quick solution.

      • Thank You very much Souvik, for You Quick replay.
        But right now i Managed this issue by using some css tips on particular menu item.

        Let me know how to change the height and width of images in rsmonials scroller module.

        Thank you,

        • You can set the “maximum image width” and “maximum image height” in module parameter section. That is the only option to manage the image. Image will auto resize accordingly, but not exceed the “maximum image width” and “maximum image height”.

  3. Great component! Do you have one for WordPress?

    My question is about spammers – is there anyway to block them by email?
    I have the captcha set and working but these are the losers that waste their time AND mine by personaly inputing their junk to get past the captcha.

    Thank you again for a great plugin

    • Currently there is a default captcha and a ReCaptcha option is available to get protection from SPAM. We know this is not enough. We are already implementing some other security features and will release it in our next version.

  4. Hello Dear.
    I got around the settings great.Now the problem is I don´t receive mail when a testimonial is posted and this message is building up in the manage testimonial page.Only variables should be assigned by reference in /homepages/45/d430379233/htdocs/www/administrator/ components/com_rsmonials/includes/admin.rsfunctions.php on line 14
    And this one appear on the top.
    Only variables should be assigned by reference in /homepages/45/d430379233/htdocs/www/administrator/ components/com_rsmonials/admin.rstestimonials.php on line 60.
    Any suggestion to solve the problem?
    Thank you.

    • Please try to set the following in the php.ini file of your server:

      error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE
      display_errors = Off

      • Hello Souvik.
        Thank you for your time answering and sorry but it´s not working for me.
        My joomla site doesn´t have a php.ini so I created one (not sure about syntax cause I´m not a programmer). I put in the root directory, in the admin directory and in both RS-monials component directories without success.Any idea?
        Thanks again.

  5. please help me i have to use rsmonials it’s nice one . resmonials scroller modules working done but rsmonials component is not working . if i link to the menu >> internal link >> rsmonials it’s showing the error ” undifined index page” please solve my problem. current i am working in localhost.

  6. I am using RS monials v 1.5.3. My testimonials display serially whenever the page is refreshed. It currently displays the older ones first. is there way I can sort them so the latest(new) ones are displayed first? If yes how do I do that?

    • The testimonials display as per date, order by newest to oldest. Date can be changed by editing any testimonial from admin panel.

      • testimonials are not getting displayed by date(newest to oldest). It is displaying the oldest first. I have a testimonial posted on 2012-8-09 which is displayed first and the testimonial posted on 2103-3-28 is displayed last. I would like to have the 2013-3-28 testimonial displayed first. There is an ID column. Is there a way to change that or sort that. will it help if it is sorted?. Currently the testimonial with date 2012-8-09 had id 1 and the 2013-3-28 testimonial has id 9.

  7. I am getting error:
    “Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/learn2013/administrator/ components/com_rsmonials/includes/admin.rsfunctions.php on line 14”

    My php.ini is already configured with:
    error_reporting = E_ALL
    display_errors = Off

    Any hint please on what is causing this and how this can be solved? Thanks – I love this component

    • May be following setting you need to set under “administrator” folders separately. Create one php.ini file using notepad and add the “error_reporting = E_ALL” and “display_errors = Off” on that file. Then upload it to the “administrator” folder. Then test again.

  8. Currently building a site locally, the RSMonial is scrolling “undefined”
    I have configured things in the settings.
    i have created the menu item.
    i have created a testimonial yet still scrolling “undefined” when i view site.
    joomla 2.5

    can you help?
    thanks in advance

  9. I have been getting this error code pop up every where on my pages
    Notice: Undefined index: page in /srv/www/vhosts/j2kassociates.co.uk/httpdocs/components/com_rsmonials/router.php on line 20

  10. Hi,

    I have installed RS monials.
    I don’t receive mail if somebody posted a comment.
    The setting I used is that I will revieuw before posting.

    What do I do wrong?

    • There is no specific order to install the component or module. It is your choice. But you can not use the modules without the component. You have to install the component to use the modules in your website front-end.

    • You can not able to get rid it fully but you can edit the text from “Joomla Admin” => “Components” => “RSMonials” => “Language File” section.

  11. I love your RSMonials however, I have not been able to assign specific testimonials to specific pages. My client has 60+ locations. Is this plugin capable of having multiple module assignments showing specific testimonials from that location? I tried using the ID’s in the modules but, it didn’t work. Thank you in advance for you help.


  12. I am still trying to get the “testimonials” title off the page and its still not working.

    I have edited the language file per your previous post.
    I have also made sure the options where “no” for page title under the menu option.

    Yet, the title still plagues me.

    Is there any other advice? http://www.innovativeresumes.biz/

    Awesome component btw and thank you for offering a free version so I can try it out.

    • Please go to the “CSS File” tab of RSMonials and then edit the respective css file and add the following css code at the end of the file:

      div.item-page { display: none !important; }

      Hopefully this will solve your issue.

  13. Why can’t anyone post a testimonial on my website? As admin i can add a testimonial in the backend but not on the frontend. I even changed the values in the settings but they didn’t help me either..

  14. I have disabled date function using “Components” => “RSMonials” => “Display Style” and then set “testimonial_block_show_date” to “false”.
    However, the scrolling module still shows it. How can I prevent this please.
    I am also not getting email alerts of new submittions and have added the correct e-mail address in settings.

  15. Is it possible to hide the submitter’s name or make it not required if I am adding testimonials myself (as admin)? I would prefer not to include people’s names if that is possible?

  16. How can I format the font and text color “Powered by RS Web Solutions” that appears at the end of the page? Which file should be edited?

  17. Hi Souvik, I would like to see the menu link in the home page at the bottom of other article. It’s possible? I don’t want to show the module. Thanks.

    • You can place the link at the bottom. But you can not place the content of the link on the bottom of your home page without using RSMonials module.

  18. I also emailed you about this issue… I installed RSMonials in my site and within 24hours was notified by my hosting company that there were malicious scripts found that could be exploited by hackers. These pointed to: /components/com_rsmonials/rsmonials.php

    Now they’ve disabled my site until I remove the questionable script. Have you encountered this before? What’s the solution, other than uninstalling your software and using something different (which I prefer not to do since I like RSMonials)?

    Please reply asap since I just got them to reinstate my site, but only for 24 hours.


    • Thanks for your email. 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.

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

      • PAGE TITLE was the only parameter having the value Testimonials in the Language File and no changes were observed after making changes to this parameter. Is there a missing parameter perhaps?

        • In that case, please check your menu item of “RSMonials”. In the parameter of menu item there is an option to set “Page Title”, just edit that parameter.

  19. I have used the menu system to show the pages of the testimonials but I do not want the date to show, how can I stop tis, I know how to do it in the module but not through the menu

    • Go to “Components” => “RSMonials” => “Display Style” and then set “testimonial_block_show_date” to “false”.
