Hot Responsive Slider


Image sliders are recommended when you need to include multiple pictures on a post or product page. Including all of them could damage the visual appearance of your site and make it looks messy. Therefore, only one place for image slider with dozens of your images could illustrate your text or products you are selling in a better way. This approach is highly recommended and often used in modern web design practices.

Hot Responsive Slider by HotThemes is based on jQuery. The sliders you create will look great on mobile devices and they will fit into the screen automatically. Furthermore, on all touch-screens user can change images with finger gestures, such as swiping or tapping.

How to upload images?

You can use any FTP client to create folders and upload images to your site.

Can this plugin show images uploaded by Media Library?

Yes, but you should know the folder where these images are uploaded. By default, WordPress makes folders with years and months. So, to show images from January 2015, your shortcode will be {slider}wp-content/uploads/2015/01{/slider}.

I don’t see any images, why?

You most likely missed the folder where your images are stored. Use any FTP client to check the correct path of your images. Enter path relatively to your WordPress site (don’t enter “http://” or “” before folder).
