For coders
By , for WP 3.5.1

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.

OK Slider, But Not Much Flexibility
By , for WP 3.4.2

I like this slider for simplicity. One piece of code to show it, one page of settings. For a simple slider, it works fine. But, if you want to customize it, good luck.

The developer has a nice plugin here, but provides no documentation on implementing customs styles. So, short of editing the source files (somethings I don't like or recommend), you're stuck with the options provided. Not that there aren't a decent amount of options, but there's no way to change the navigation buttons, use your own fonts or change the default layout.

So, if you like a slider with text at the bottom over a semi-transparent background, it's fine. If you want to do something else with it, this slider isn't what you're looking for.
