This plugin can pull any category post with featured image with title and excerpt and can show in slider form, That makes it awesome.

Would be 5 stars if only it had multiple sliders options.

I love this plugin. However, I wish it had the option to add multiple sliders on your site i.e. slider1, slider2, etc..

Right now it's limited to only 1 slider use.

Easy to get started
By , for WP 3.5.1

Thanks for the easy-to-use plugin that creates a nice slideshow.

The only thing that could be slightly confusing for a new wp user is to know in which php file to place the code. I did it within page.php, b/c I have specified a page as the home page.

Works good!
By , for WP 3.5.1

Appears to be working great, but cannot center it on my page (I have it as my header). There should be more documentation detailing how to do these simple functions. I'm new to wordpress and PHP editing.

Have to be able to use PHP at least minimally to use this plugin. Had to dig around a little (no link on Help & Support admin page) to find that you've got to invoke it with PHP.

To display WordPress content slide on your website you have to add following lines of code inside your themes .php files.

<?php if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); } ?>

I might use it on my own site, but my clients would be completely out of their depth!

Not that it would help my clients, but one might expect at least some shortcodes for invoking in a post or page.

P.S. The screenshots page is missing material.

Awkward, backward interface
By , for WP 3.5.1

On the plus side I like the way the admin can precisely limit who has access to the various parts of the plugin.

But there are so many negatives:

- Slideshows aren't individually stylable. There's only one size setting you use to specify all your galleries.
- Doesn't allow bulk upload of photos.
- Photos aren't added to the media library and so don't benefit from great editing functionality.
- For some reason, it cuts off large portions of big photos whether or not I set the Resize Images option.
- Slideshow elements don't line up well with each other. Perhaps this is related to use of *{box-sizing:border-box;} that so many web authors use on their sites.

as advertised

This does what you would expect it to do, and it does it well. The main feature I was looking for was a slideshow that does not pull from posts. executed nicely.
