Easy to use slideshow plugin. Create SEO optimised responsive slideshows with Nivo Slider, Flex Slider, Coin Slider and Responsive Slides.
I've been using 1 or 2 other plugins pretty exclusively for the past year or so and just tried Meta Slider. It took less than 10 minutes to get a slider into my custom theme - very, very simple to use. This may be my new go-to slider.
I'm in the process of rebuilding our website with "responsive" design, and it's been quite challenging. Finding the right slider that works well both with a desktop PC as well as a mobile browser has been even more difficult. Thank god I discovered Meta Slider. Images display without distortion both on the desktop as well as either portrait or landscape on mobile. Out of 10-15 I've tried, I think I've finally found a keeper!
I've been dealing with this plugin and Tom quite a lot over the recent months as I've integrated support for Meta Slider into my themes. He's a true upstanding gentleman and the team over at Matcha Labs have done a great on this plugin.
It's solidly built with some of the finest WordPress code I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Highly recommended. The premium version is great and I love that they don't force it on you.
Congrats on 100 5 star reviews guys. You deserve it.
After spending money and/or time on several other sliders (one of which required me to save my pictures in a zip file because it wouldn't/couldn't take them from the Media Library)I tried out the Meta Slider and upgraded to the Pro edition. Simple and easy to use, and it has the option of html or layered slides that's easy to do.
I'm usually suspicious of too many high marks, but look at me. I just joined the crowd. Who'da thunk.
This slider was perfect for my needs: powerful enough, simple to set up, implement and tweak. Great tool!
More importantly, the support is outstanding. The measure of a product is often not in the item itself, but how well (or *if*) it's producers stand behind it and support it. Tom's support has been stellar.
Thanks for all the hard work!
My favourite theme that I use on both my blogs.
My favourite slider at the moment. Very flexible and easy to use.
I tried the free version and immediately bought the pro version.
It has everything a slider needs, very easy to use.
I had one small problem and received a solution from the support desk in a matter of hours.
The pro version has an excellent quality/price ratio.
Perfect product to use.
MetaSlider is among the most useful, most stable and most versatile WP plug-ins I've used. My old WP sites needed a variety of different banner, slideshow, gallery and image managements plug-ins. Now, I just use MetaSlider.
We're now running a variety of header banners in multiple sizes, sidebar slideshows promoting feature articles (customized for each of our categories) and using it to put multiple pictures in articles in a compact single box (we sometimes use two MS shows to allow for portrait and landscape images to maximize the size).
And, every photo gets its own description and hotlink as desired. This helps point visitors to different articles. As a bonus, the Chrome Pinterest plug in can see ALL the images in MS slideshows while importing the descriptions to make pinning easy.
The small glitches we encountered for managing lots of MS shows and sorting the shows created were quickly addressed by tech support. And by quickly I mean within hours.
I gladly upgraded to the Pro version for $20 because it gives even more flexibility for media included (like video clips).
