Facil de Administrar
By , for WP 3.5.2

He buscado muchos plugins, pero este tiene la particularidad de ser muy flexible en cuanto a la administración, además de permitir contenido personalizado por cada slide.

Still pretty darn solid
By , for WP 3.5.1

It hasn't been updated in a while, but it really doesn't need to be. Still solid, I'm a big fan of Zurb Foundation so found this is to implement.

You'll want to change a line in the min js file from startClockOnMouseOut:false to startClockOnMouseOut:true, otherwise when you pause on hover it stays like that.

Also, add if ( function_exists( 'add_image_size' ) ) { add_image_size( 'orbit-custom', 690, 316 ); } to your functions.php, and change the dimensions. If you want a custom size.

Good, but not much activity.

I like it but now there are other great sliders that are updated. Worked well on my website though.

Abandoned ?
By , for WP 3.4.2

Couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer !

If you look in the support forums, this plugin seems to have been abandoned by its author, who has not responded to anything in several months.

There just seems to be too many problems & workarounds. I have built several WP sites now, using various image sliders - this plugin showed a lot of potential, but I had to give up after about an hour.

(PS - I'm happy to change my rating & update my review in the future, if the bugs are ironed out & support re-started).

Easy, Affordable, Responsive
By , for WP 3.4.2

The free plugin works perfectly on all modern browsers, including IE8. Easy to set, it does exactly what it is expected to do. And most of all the responsive feature makes the slider absolutely functional for all devises. Just note that the timer must be set on if you want the slider to run automatically. In case you can hide the timer later by using proper css code. Thank you.
