You can also use Dynamic Tag and choose to add the picture automatically from the meta field if you have JetEngine or Elementor Pro plugin installed;
  • Icon. Whether you want to add an icon instead of the picture or use it with the picture at the same time, you can choose it from the icon library or upload a custom SVG file;

  • Name and Position. These fields are for the name and position of the person that gives a comment about your product;
