BUGGY
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin is so poorly written it only has support for one slider even though it's supposed to allow for multiple sliders! The plugin author has been notified of the bug that causes the only cache _transient__sol_cache to ever be written or updated, vs the individual slider data being written and read: _transient__sol_cache_###

Unresponsive support
By , for WP 3.9.1

The 'Pro' version collapses if the images haven't loaded. There is one support message on the Pro versions forum (ie not here) where the author says that this is the case, but doesn't offer a solution.

I think this is a bug pure and simple, and the slider should maintain height as the images load in the background.

I put in a support query with the 'Pro' support site, but have not had a response (yet). Hopefully this will happen soon, and I will be able to increase my rating, as otherwise the slider is simple and effective.

PLUGIN DOESN'T WORK!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Plugin doesn't function properly. Programmer not responding to requests for help.

I'd bet A LOT of money that he actually programmed the plugin to work incorrectly in order to get people to subscribe to his paid support option.

That's too bad. This seems like it'd be a great tool, if it worked properly. If he had responded to my request for help, I wouldn't have a problem paying for future support.

Too late now.

I strongly suggest NOT trying to use this plugin. Don't waste your time with it.

Terrible plugin - incredibly slow loading time
By , for WP 3.8

I've installed the plugin, but soon afterwards I've experienced really slow loading time, that made my main page slider appear after whole page is loaded, pushing the content, making this weird jerky jump.

I've tried other plugin that was quite popular - meta slider lite and slider with the same amount of images loads as fast as the whole page.

Hopefuly you'll focus more on better plugin development rather than missleading advertisment. Best wishes.
