No BS Image Slider

Description

This is an ultra-minimal no-frills responsive image slider.

There are many robust image slider plugins already. They work well and have a lot of features, some with even more features at the premium tier.
I’m not saying that they don’t have their place but that sometimes they are excessive.

This plugin is for someone who just wants to have linked images scroll by in a loop on their website.

How To Use

No BS Image Slider works by leveraging what WordPress already provides, by creating a new custom post type and taxonomy.

  1. To begin, create your slides by using the Image Slide type. Be sure to add a featured image, and provide a link in the link field.
  2. Create a slider by adding an Image Slider taxonomy. This allows a slide to be in multiple sliders.
  3. Use the No BS Image Slider widget to configure which slider you want displayed, and the duration of each slide.

FAQ

What makes this light-weight?

No BS Image Slider has minimal backend coding and zero external dependencies.
The slider is also optimized purely with CSS, no JavaScript is used.
The CSS currently weighs in at just under half a kilobyte, blowing away all of the major slider plugins by a mile.
