Too much ads!
By , for WP 3.5.2

I uninstalled this plugin VERY quickly.
Come on, the admin interface looks like a Geocities 90's site, it's stuffed with banners!
It's so unprofessional...ok it's free and everything but there are too much alternatives out there.

Ads, OMG ads.
By , for WP 3.4.2

I don't mind the occasional banner or 'donate' button, but this one barfs ads all over your settings page.

Banners on the top, bottom, flyers on the right, and so much whitespace in the middle making us scroll through it all.

Good but error-ridden
By , for WP 3.4.2

This looked like a really useful slider and unlike others I don't object too much to the advertising (AFAIR, it appears only on the settings pages).

However, and this is an utterly frustrating element of too many WordPress Plugins, it hasn't been properly tested under E_ALL or E_STRICT error reporting. As a result, there are loads of small errors that appear on the site. The slider appears under a long list of error messages.

Some say this doesn't matter, but as a developer I want to be able to work with full error reporting in my development environment, and I expect plugins to be equally compliant. It hardly inspires confidence in the ability of the developer, and it also affects performance (just because you've switched the error reporting off, it doesn't mean the error has gone away).

Please fix this and this will be an excellent plugin...

Rigid Functionality - Blank Slides
By , for WP 3.5

This plugin is average at best. I downloaded it to test the free version to see if it is worth upgrading to some of the premium sliders they offer. After working through the configuration of the slider, which is unfriendly at best, I used the shortcode to add the slider to a post. Instead of a slider, I got a white box displaying nothing. After an hour of failed attempts, I am looking for a better option. Very disappointing.

Just doesn't work
By , for WP 3.4.2

All the slides appear all piled on top of each other and the slider doesn't slide.
