I'm looking for a slider plugin that would 1) automatically pull post titles and excerpts from WordPress for entries, 2) pull the featured image from the blog post for the image, 3) fit into a 300px width box, 4) be free of charge. Other than that it could be very basic. It technically wouldn't even have to be a slider as long as it could display at least a single post in that manner. In a perfect world, the text content (at least the excerpt) would only be shown upon hovering. In a nutshell I'm looking for a fully automated WP slider that would fit into my sidebar.
I've been googling for a while and I haven't encountered anything like that yet. Slyd seems to very close, but I'm not sure if it would fit (can't test right now) and you also have to insert the image manually, which is a huge downfall for me.
I'm also willing to look at premium options if this is asking too much from a freebie. I could definitely deal with an external plugin if it had WP support.
Thanks in advance!
