    In the Features list on the WP plugin page, it says that one can "Get First or Featured Images from Post or Page".
    Where is the option for selecting images from Pages?
    There are only options for "Categories" and "Custom", no list of a site's Pages.

    To grab page images...

    Under 'Image Source' (in plugin slider settings), select 'Category'.

    Then select a category, say 'News'. Then slider will pick images from your news items.

    I have created a sub category under news, called 'Featurepost' and then selected that. This means, in my blog/news posts, I can tick the sub category box 'Featurepost' to have it propogate to the slider. I also have VSlider set to only show feature images, this excludes post images, which may be a different size. You have to remember to set up a feature image in each post if you want it to show up in the slider.

    This way my slider only shows featured images, from news posts marked with sub category 'Feature'(all set in the post page itself, once VSlider is configured).

    This means you can pick and choose what images are displayed, and it's all done in the post section (not in Vslider options)

    the problem is it only shows posts with featured images, not pages. maybe someone knows how to make it work with categories for pages, not only posts?

    I would suggest to use vSlider 5.0.1.
    We'll no longer be supporting 4.X issues. You can search about them in our forums.
