Just a few points I noticed:
– the full listing of testimonials. The website is not linked to any URL
– there really needs to be option for any linked URLs to be have both no follow and _blank attributes. Nofollow is important for Google Panda (or whatever reason you choose but an important option) and being able to pop a user out into another window keeps or retains focus to my website.

– For the full list of testimonials, I didn’t link to any URLs because I thought this will be mostly used on sales pages where you have a call to action, in this case you really don’t want people to have fewer options, for example click only on your “buy now” button! (I linked only the links on the widget if URL is provided).
My understanding to NoFollow links, is that you should safely dofollow all links on a webpage, but nofollow those links that you you recommend less, it’s an affiliate link, or a paid link.
So, in my opinion dofollow links to your customers’s sites is not going to hurt your site! (I do it naturally all the time) They are part of my business anyways, and I know them, I trust they have good reputation!
P.S. From the other side, what hurts websites is having a huge amount of links to websites with bad or low reputation! so, this is not our case at all!
– The links already open in a new window and has the target=”_blank” attribute (of course this is only on the widget), I will add re=”nofollow” as an option.

I realize this is an old post, but have there been any updates to the code short codes where I can set the full-page view of testimonials to open in a new window? Your response posted in 2012 indicated its automatic in the widget. I need this in the page shortcode settings.
