I downloaded and was using the free version when my site crashed which caused a problem with the slider. An email to the developer and the problem was fixed almost immediately. I have now purchased the Pro version for some added functionality. Overall, it’s easy to use and is the only one I could find that had all the things I was looking for i.e. able to put different size and shape images into one slider. This one did the job beautifully. I was able to use it out of the box without any problems and although there are quite a few adjustments you can make, it is a really simply dashboard and I would recommend it to anyone.

Like all plugins, you need first to get into how it works, get the feel, the functionality. After spending an hour doing so (I like to dig deep) here is my take : If your reading this, your probably one of the hundreds; nay, thousands who have hunted high and low for a slider plugin that does exactly what it says on the tin right? Well, here it is – it’s simple, easy to use, unbloated and you can get your slider up and running within three minutes (if you have already set up your images for it!) And yes, you can also add your ow CSS and mess with the style sheet (as I did) 😉 Sure it also has a ‘Pro’ version, but a man has to eat right? Only criticism I have is ‘why oh why’ do devs make videos and not add a narration? If they can’t speak English get a one on Fiverr.Com (I recommend an VO Artist called’BookMyVoice’ Love to test and try the pro version out! Anyway, bottom line > Nice plugin, Written well, Unbloated, Fast!
