Slider by Nivo – Responsive WordPress Image Slider


The Nivo Slider is the worlds most popular jquery image slider plugin, downloaded over 3,000,000 times since it’s inception. This
is the “Lite” version of the official Nivo Slider WordPress plugin
which comes with email support and more features.

The plugin let’s you easily create a post slider, an image carousel or a slideshow, right from your dashboard, without settings that you don’t need. Can act as a homepage slider as well and it works great with our WordPress themes.

Why Choose Nivo Slider?
Nivo Slider is the best choice for a WordPress slider plugin because it is fast, intuitive and super easy to use. Is not the most feature-rich plugin on the market (like revolution slider or layer slider), but if you need just a responsive content slider that works, check it out!

A Great Slider

I tried quite a few sliders and other graphic animators and finally settled on Nivo Slider because it was the most versatile given what I was attempting to do. I would highly recommend this slider, for if you’re doing multiple slider windows on a page, it’s the best and most flexible solution around. I’ve been using it for about 2 years and still haven’t found one better

Super easy to use

I’ve used several slider plugins over the time and this is by far the one that is easy to use.

Not responsive

Since the Lite version is not responsive, and you have to put a fixed size on it, it won’t work well when you resize the image.
