Infinite Slider


Web users are starting to get bored by the currently prevailing trend of one huge image at the top of the website usually followed by a couple of more slides if the user waits enough! They usually don’t…

That’s where Infinite Slider comes in: it brings the best content of your site to the surface via beautiful Featured Images that you (usually) have added to all your posts anyways! By featuring at least 20 (or more!) tiles on your page with images, description and a read more button in the focus area you’ll surely get more interaction that with any other “regular” slider plugins out there. It’s a truly innovative and unique idea that’s now available to all WordPress owners for free! No “pro” versions, no paid support; just like in the old days of plugins! 🙂 Enjoy.

This is by far the best Slider I ever used. And I don't see any issues. Check your existing plugins if they have conflict. Don't just say bad thing about this plugin cause it works absolutely fine. And works as described.

Good idea, but poor execution. - Not loop - Chopped - Error in the localization - No response to problems
