Why do I need a Plugin? Can I not just paste the Testimonials Code Snippet into my WordPress Page Editor?

WordPress will strip any PHP, Javascript and advanced HTML out of the page and post editor for security reasons. This is a WordPress limitation (for your own safety of your site) and is regardless of what theme or WordPress version you are using.

Why is the GatherUp plugin not listed in the WordPress Plugin Directory?

The plugin itself relies on GatherUp to add any function to WordPress. This makes it a “paid or sponsored” plugin and therefore ineligible to be listed on WordPress.org

I don’t like Plugins. Do I have to use one to add the Review Widget to my web page?

No problem. Simply create a “WordPress Page Template” and you can add the widget code directly into the PHP file. Jump over to WordPress.org to learn about custom page templates.
