ATW Show Sliders

Aspen Themeworks Show Sliders - Show posts, images, and galleries displayed in a responsive slider with many options.

This isn't the typical plugin to create Sliders: Slide Shows, Carousels, Sliders with Posts. This is a Slider with options! It supports beautiful, responsive image sliders and slide shows. And that's not all - it also can display any regular post in a slider or slide show. You can even use ATW Show Sliders as a Slide Show replacement for the standard WordPress [gallery] shortcode.

But, best of all, ATW Show Sliders has been designed to give you options! You have more control of what content is displayed in your sliders and slide shows, as well as how that content is displayed.

This plugin uses the FlexSlider jQuery script for the actual slider animation.

Easy to Select Content

For images sliders, you can use the standard WordPress gallery generator. Simply add a [gallery] to one of the new Slider Custom Post types. You can use the standard gallery interface to select images from your Media library. That interface allows you to add captions, descriptions, even specify the order the images are shown.

ATW Show Sliders requires the Aspen Themeworks Show Posts plugin to specify exactly which posts (or individual images) are used for sliders you define. You can use the special Slider Post type. You can pick up a gallery from any page. ATW Show Sliders will even automatically use the first image found on any post. Using the ATW Show Posts filter interface, you can easily select exactly where your images and posts included in a slider originate.

No other slider makes it as easy to select the source of your images and posts.

Pro Version Available

While we think the basic, free version of ATW Show Sliders provides an easy-to-use basic slider with enough options for many people, we also know that others want even more control over the appearance of their sliders. So we also offer ATW Show Sliders Pro that has many more options, including more sizing and layout options; more control over how images are displayed with titles, captions, and descriptions; support for Videos in sliders, more control of Carousels; selection of over 20 different navigation arrows, display options for navigation arrows,timing and order options, per-slider custom CSS, and other options to fine tune your slider. There is no other slider plugin like it.
