How can we improve WooThemes?

Testimonials - random rotatation - enhance testimonial freshness

For the testimonials plug in it would be great to have the option for the testimonials to rotate randomly when the page is refreshed

For example

I have set up 9 testimonials and set to display 3 maximum, I'd like those to change so that when a customer goes through the site they are seeing different testimonials as they look at different product pages.

My testimonials are generic about our holidays rather than focussed on one holiday (product)

Currently the only way to do this is to set up a new widget area for every product page and specify a testimonial by ID, that however is limited to one testimonial.

Please vote this up if you'd liek your testimonials to be fresh for returning and browsing customers!

        I took a quick look at the plugin. The plugin makes its own post type so I know the plugin is using a default query. As I thought woothemes has catered for a custom query by filtering the query.

        Here is a snippet which should change the order to a random order. Copy and paste this snippet into your functions.php file - http://pastebin.com/ZStFxE5E

        The default query parameters can be changed and expanded upon. You can read more on wordpress queries here. http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query
