let's jump in so we come in here to our Wix editor right I already created a base page I just created a testimonial page added text all that good stuff now let's show you how to actually go ahead and build out the testimonial function here how do we actually build it out well we need a couple things number one we need a database to collect the testimonials right so what we have to do is we have to go over here to data we're gonna click on that we're gonna see data manager and we're gonna create new collection I'm gonna go ahead create a new collection and I'm gonna name this testimonials and I'm gonna add custom permissions okay so we're gonna set up our custom permissions essentially what this means as we choose who gets to add data to this database and who gets to view data from this database so who can read content from there collection anyone I'm making this available to anyone so whether you're subscribed to the witch training academy not subscribed if you haven't already it's completely free so click that yes I want free training on which training academy calm and subscribe because you get tons of free content shameless plug who can create content anyone if you got all been affected or touched by my channel or the content that I provided go leave a testimonial anyone can leave one who can update it anyone and who can delete content anyone I might actually chant yeah we'll keep that anyone anyone and then will correct create our collection and it's gonna create and we're gonna see the database populate so we're not in the Wix code tools form our portion here we're actually just in the database so Wix has actually made it now from the editor we can add databases from that data button which is kind of nice so now that we're in our sandbox database we need to add the proper fields so the fields that I want to add is I want someone to be able to put their full name number one and we want that to be a text field we'll click Add I want someone to be able to put a profile picture and we'll make that an image field and we'll also click add I want someone to be able to put a testimonial itself and we will make that a text field as well click Add and then do we want a star system we'll go with just F right now for the purpose of this video and show you how to make a testimonial section with someone's full name profile picture testimonial and we may also add company name because most of you watching this video and have been impacted own a company own a website any of the above you can put whatever the name of that website or company is in this field and we'll click Add so now we have our database fields right so we have our database fields now what we need to do is we need to add a repeater why do we need it at and the need to add a repeater we need to add a repeater because that's what's going to display our testimonials so to do that we're gonna come in here to add we're gonna go to lists and grids and these are all different repeaters in here and we have to determine what one we want I like to go to this one because it's already got just about all the elements that I'm looking for added to the repeater itself and that's a plus for me so what you're gonna do is you're gonna go ahead and add it you're gonna drag it to the corresponding size that you want it to be that's not quite it for me what I want to do is I actually want to drag each one out so I want it to take up the full middle width of the page here I'm gonna change the look of this I'm gonna drag the testimonial out further I'm gonna keep the picture actually where it is and I'm also gonna change the design of this box the border we will change to be this color right here and we'll add a 1 with on the border I like that little border effect I'm gonna come in here and change the text effect and you could come in here and I'll show you how to do all that you just come in here change it so you guys are seeing this real time I'm showing you the actual build out here of the witch training academy testimonials page I'm gonna change this right here I'm gonna go with little light and then I'm also going late a light here bingo and I'm gonna change the text color here as well to this same color I like that color perfect so now what we've got here guys is we've got the actual look and feel of the repeater so when someone like yourself comes in here what you're gonna do is I'm gonna show you how to post and all that good stuff here in a second but your name would be displayed here your company will be displayed here your testimony will be displayed right here and your profile picture or logo will be displayed right here and that's how it'll work so this is where the results are gonna be displayed what we have to do is we have to add a data set what does the data set do well we're gonna go to add we're going to go down to database and we're gonna add data set so we need a data set to connect the data from the database – this repeater so we're gonna double-click on the data set and we're gonna choose a collection we're pulling from the testimonials collection and we want the mode right now to be read only we'll want number of items to display you know I'll go fancy let's add testimonial 50 testimonials to this page within the next week if you guys do that you're awesome so we're gonna add 50 show number of items to display this means it'll display 50 items from the database on this page I can change this at any point in time but right now I'm gonna keep it at 50 I'm gonna go ahead and add it's already sorted from new to old so that's perfect and now we've got that what we have to do now is connect the data that's gonna be displayed right here to this data set so to do that what we have to do is we'll click on this text icon we'll click connect to data will choose the testimonials data set and text connects to full name come back here we'll come here to art director we'll connect to data then we'll text connects to company name then we'll come down here text connects – and we want this to connect to testimonial and then we'll have profile picture profile connects to the image source connects to profile picture and then you can add a link if you wanted we don't really need that for our purpose now our data in this repeater is connected to the testimonials data set sorry I have a cold guys but you're probably asking okay we've connected the data now where do we get the data from how do we post a testimonial well I'm going to show you how to do that right now let me increase the width of this strip here because what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna add a little spot up here to post so I'm gonna go ahead I'm gonna drag in a box and I'm gonna show you how this works okay go with this look right here kind of keep a similar look and feel to the current look and feel of the actual testimonials and then what we'll do is we'll say now we'll get a button we'll get a button right and grab a button here I'll go with this one I'll change the look of it though um I'll change the design want it to be a flat square rectangular design I'm gonna come in here I'm gonna change the text the border color I'm gonna change it to this same color text I'm gonna go ahead and change it to the same color and then I'm gonna say drag it out I'm gonna title it post your testimonial and that's a button now we've got the button there now what happens is when this button is clicked we needed to prompt a lightbox or a page that allows you to post the testimonial so what we're gonna do is we're gonna menus and pages and then we're gonna come down to WTA registration page I'm gonna copy this box right here because I already like the design of credit it fits the the feel of the website we're gonna go to the post the testimonial lightbox we're gonna get rid of this design we're going to add this design right here we're gonna change some of the verbage here share your story post your testimonial about about how the rich about how which training Academy has helped your business journey has helped you're a web design journey you guys are seeing all the behind the scenes so we're gonna do that right here then I'm gonna I'm gonna bold this I'm gonna make it Leto black got that up there now what we have to do guys is we have to add the proper field right so we have to add all the fields that we just added to the actual repeater itself right in here so if we do that we're gonna come in here we're gonna go to add we're gonna go down to user input and we know for certain we need a full name field so I'm gonna go ahead and start adding these fields in there so we need a full name field we need a company name field we need to go ahead and add a profile image upload so we'll go to upload button and I'm gonna go with this puppy right here we know we need a profile image upload and then last but not least we know we need an actual testimonial box input so someone can enter their testimonial so I'm gonna go back to add we're gonna be in user input we're gonna go whoops user input we're gonna go to text and we're gonna add a text box we're gonna go ahead and add that right here drag it out to the same size there we go now I'm gonna go ahead and change the design on these real quick keep a nice simple I'm gonna go with just a light background like that the border we're gonna change to this color right here the text we're gonna change to leto and then on hover we want a similar style then we'll come through do the same thing here I'm just gonna copy this one and I'll show you how this all comes together in a second and then I'm gonna do that for this one I'm gonna change it up a little bit I'm gonna add the border right there I'm gonna change the text on this one I'm gonna change the text to be this color as well I'm gonna change it to be laid a light and we're good there and now we have to change the actual text box so I hope you guys are tracking along with me here I know there's a bit more a bit less of me looking straight out to the camera and talking and a little bit more of me actually focusing on the design and that's because I want you to see this process how it works this is how I work and this is how I get stuff done for the witch training academy so I wanted to show you alright so now that we've got this what we need to do is we need to edit the settings of each field we want this one to be full name we want this one to be company name and if we go back up here to full name and we click settings you can see the typist text and it's required so these are all gonna be required so full names required company name required pro profile image or logo we're gonna upload a profile pic whoops picture or logo and I want this to be required so put that right there and then right here we will write your testimonial slash story here and this is obviously required limit linked I'm not gonna go ahead and put a length limit on it just to see how it goes if you guys start flooding in with responses so I'm super long some super short maybe I'll put a link limit on it but for right now I'm not going to if I did essentially what happened is it would limit the length of characters that were allowed in that text box so now that we've got that we've got our fields what we have to do is we have to go ahead and add another data set so we have to go back down the database and we have to add a new data set we're gonna come in here and this data set is gonna be going to the same place our last data set was which is the testimonials database because what's gonna happen is the information that's collected in these boxes is gonna submit to that testimonials database we want this one to be right only because we want people to write in here only and then we're set for that now what we have to do is we have to connect these fields to the data set so this connects to testimonials database and this connects to full-name this one connects to company name so we're gonna come in here value connects to company name I'll blow the profile picture we're gonna come in here and file connects to profile picture and then testimonial connects to testimonial so now that we've got that guys we've now got all of our fields connected to the database and now what we have to do is we have to make this make sure this button submits so we have to connect this to the data as well so this connections to testimonials database link connects to submit we want this to submit the data in the form and then once it submits we want when successful navigate to and we want it to go – a link and we want that link to be a page and we want that page to be testimonials we want it to go back to the testimonials page and then we're gonna click good and now guys what happens is we've got ourself a little testimonial forum right here that allows us to our allows you to come through fill it out and then post a testimonial so we'll click Save there so now what will happen and I'm gonna go ahead get rid of that and we've got this buddy instead so now what will happen is I've saved that I'm gonna go ahead and exit lightbox mode hopefully you guys have been tracking along I know this one's been a little longer or you go back to our testimonials page we're gonna go ahead and link this button to our new lightbox which is posted testimonial click done I'm gonna go back to that lightbox I'm gonna make sure that the settings on it are all correct that it's not gonna be triggered on automatically so nope no trigger automatically perfect so now what I'm gonna do is we're back at those two lightbox page we're gonna go ahead we're going to publish and we're gonna take a little sample at it and see how it goes we're gonna test it out and now I want you guys to do the same thing right now
