Bootstrap 5 Testimonial Slider

A simple responsive Bootstrap 5 testimonial slider using the Bootstrap carousel with multiple items.

Final output:

On smaller screens:

Bootstrap Testimonial Carousel Slider

1. I’ll be using the Bootstrap 5 Carousel Multiple Items slider from a previous post for the Bootstrap testimonial slider.

(Rerun when changing sizes)

See the Pen Bootstrap carousel multiple items increment by 1 (jQuery) by Coding Yaar (@codingyaar) on CodePen.

For Bootstrap 5.2+, add wrap: false to stop the continuous cycle.

var carousel = new bootstrap.Carousel(multipleCardCarousel, {
  interval: false,
  wrap: false,
});

2. I have removed the buttons and replaced the images. Since the images are of the same size, I have removed the img-wrapper related CSS.

Output:

3. Add testimonial slider div and place the slider inside it.

Let’s add 2 columns inside the carousel. Add the title in the first column, with font-weight bold, and to increase the font size, I am using the display class.

Place the carousel-inner div in the second column.

<div class="testimonial-slider">
    <div id="carouselExampleControls" class="carousel" data-bs-ride="carousel">
        <div class="container-fluid">
            <div class="row">
                <div class="col-md-4">
                    <div class="testimonial-title">
                        <h2 class="fw-bold display-5">What our customers say</h2>
                    </div>
                </div>
                <div class="col-md-8">
                    <div class="carousel-inner">
                        ...
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
        
        <button class="carousel-control-prev" type="button" data-bs-target="#carouselExampleControls" data-bs-slide="prev">
            <span class="carousel-control-prev-icon" aria-hidden="true"></span>
            <span class="visually-hidden">Previous</span>
        </button>
        <button class="carousel-control-next" type="button" data-bs-target="#carouselExampleControls" data-bs-slide="next">
            <span class="carousel-control-next-icon" aria-hidden="true"></span>
            <span class="visually-hidden">Next</span>
        </button>
    </div>
</div>

Output:

4. Instead of going to opposite ends each time on larger screens, let’s position the controls in the first column. So add the carousel controls to the first column.

<div class="testimonial-slider">
    <div id="carouselExampleControls" class="carousel" data-bs-ride="carousel">
        <div class="container-fluid">
            <div class="row">
                <div class="col-md-4">
                    <div class="testimonial-title">
                        <h2 class="fw-bold display-5">What our customers say</h2>
                    </div>
                    <button class="carousel-control-prev" type="button" data-bs-target="#carouselExampleControls" data-bs-slide="prev">
                        <span class="carousel-control-prev-icon" aria-hidden="true"></span>
                        <span class="visually-hidden">Previous</span>
                    </button>
                    <button class="carousel-control-next" type="button" data-bs-target="#carouselExampleControls" data-bs-slide="next">
                        <span class="carousel-control-next-icon" aria-hidden="true"></span>
                        <span class="visually-hidden">Next</span>
                    </button>
                </div>
                <div class="col-md-8">
                    <div class="carousel-inner">
                        ...
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Set its height and width to 3em, and position to absolute. Adjust the left and top to place the controls at the bottom left.

@media screen and (min-width: 576px) {
  .carousel-control-prev,
  .carousel-control-next {
    width: 3em;
    height: 3em;
    position: absolute;
    left: 0;
    top: 90%;
  }
  .carousel-control-next {
    left: 6%;
  }
}

Output:

5. Let’s add a background color and some padding to the testimonial-slider div. Set the font color for the title to white.

.testimonial-slider {
  background-color: #5072a7;
  padding: 3em 2em;
}
.testimonial-title {
  color: #fff;
}

Add class carousel-dark to change the carousel controls icon color. Change its background color to white and set the opacity to 1 for larger screens.

<div id="carouselExampleControls" class="carousel carousel-dark" data-bs-ride="carousel">

.carousel-control-prev, .carousel-control-next {
  background-color: #fff;
  opacity: 1;
}

Output:

6. Let’s display only 2 cards at once instead of 3 for screens larger than 576px.

@media screen and (min-width: 576px) {
  .carousel-item {
    flex: 0 0 50%;
  }
}

But it won’t go until the last card. Since there are only 2 cards now, we need to update the JS as well.

if (scrollPosition < carouselWidth - cardWidth * 3) {

Let’s change the position of the controls only for screens larger than 768px. Also, move the carousel inner padding to the same media query.

@media screen and (min-width: 768px) {
  .carousel-control-prev,
  .carousel-control-next {
    background-color: #fff;
    opacity: 1;
    width: 3em;
    height: 3em;
    position: absolute;
    left: 0;
    top: 90%;
  }
  .carousel-control-next {
    left: 6%;
  }
  .carousel-inner {
    padding: 1em;
  }
}

Output:

7. You can also add some icons to your Bootstrap testimonial slider. First, install Bootstrap icons(I am using the CDN link).

Add a quote icon above the title. I am using the display-2 class to increase the font size.

<div class="testimonial-title">
  <i class="bi bi-quote display-2"></i>
  <h2 class="fw-bold display-5">What our customers say</h2>
</div>

Similarly, you can also add stars for rating. Change the color with text-warning class and add some padding.

<div class="carousel-item active">
  <div class="card">
    <div class="img-wrapper"><img src="..." class="d-block w-100" alt="..."> </div>
    <div class="card-body">
      <h5 class="card-title">Card title 1</h5>
      <i class="bi bi-star-fill text-warning pe-1"></i>
      <i class="bi bi-star-fill text-warning pe-1"></i>
      <i class="bi bi-star-fill text-warning pe-1"></i>
      <i class="bi bi-star-fill text-warning pe-1"></i>
      <i class="bi bi-star-fill text-warning pe-1"></i>
      <p class="card-text">Some quick example text to build on the card title and make up the bulk of the
        card's content.</p>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

For cards with equal height, set the height to 100% for the cards. Add some padding to the title, to align it with the quote icon and the card.

.card {
  height: 100%;
}
.testimonial-title h2 {
  padding-left: 0.2em;
}

Let’s place the controls a bit lower for smaller screens and add a box-shadow for the controls too.

.carousel-control-prev, .carousel-control-next {
  top: 60%;
  box-shadow: 2px 6px 8px 0 rgba(22, 22, 26, 0.18);
}

Output:
