Looks like a great module

I just recently had to create a quick and dirty Testimonial module but this look like it has more functionality.

One thing I would suggest is you may want to set the default template to use semantic HTML tags instead of generic divs. Use quote and cite as those have meaning and encourage developers to think semantically instead of just presentation.

Hi jmathis,

I hadn't even thought about that. I've added a work item to include this; I'll try to get this in the next release. Thank you very much for your feedback. I really appreciate it!

There seems to be a lot of discussion about the correct markup for the semantic HTML regarding testimonials...specifically with the <cite> tag.

From a thread on Stack Overflow (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1130565/correct-way-to-mark-up-testimonials-in-html), this is answered as the "correct" way:
<blockquote cite="http://a.uri.com/"> <p>This is a really insightful sentence.</p> <cite>Darko Z</cite> </blockquote> However, this site (http://html5doctor.com/blockquote-q-cite/) states that as of the HTML5 spec, the cite reference is not valid for a person (http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/text.html#h-9.2.1). However, there is another discussion on this page using the <footer> inside a <blockquote> and whether or not is was technically valid. In the comments section the author stated that it looks like it was going to be included in the spec.

So.... given that this is totally customizable by the module admin and that this is for presentation and not detrimental to the modules performance, what I've decided is that I'm going to do is provide the module admin the option to default as it currently is or with "semantic html" in the following format:
<blockquote> <p>testimonial content here.</p> <footer>— Testimonial Author's Name<cite><a href="Author's Website">Authors Website</a></cite></footer> </blockquote> If anyone has some other ideas for this, I'd be absolutely happy to hear them. THANKS!!!
