Works pretty well, better than most

I’d give it 3.5 if I could, but rounding up because it is free after all…

The good:
• It works (not to be taken for granted, some don’t)
• Good post selection controls
• I managed to make it match the look of my theme nicely with custom CSS

The bad:
• Controls to hide meta did not work on my site, had to hide with CSS display:none
• You can’t change the sort order of posts. They display in order of post date. This is a shortcoming in my particular case because I use the carousel to list upcoming events and I’d prefer to sort by event date. Ideally could do this by custom field data, but I can’t even drag and drop to sort.
• You can’t specify to display all posts in a custom post type by category. The carousel displays this message: “Carousel contents not found!” I am guessing that the plugin only looks in standard wp post types for the specified category.
• You can display user specified posts in a custom post type, but then you have to manually curate the list.

I did relate the issues I found with the author but they were not too interested. I can’t complain, but can’t give 5 stars either.


Finally a plugin that can handle both blog posts and portfolio projects. I love the square effects of the free version, thank you!

Its working great!

I was looking for a modern nice simple post Carousel and found it with this plugin! The Support is great, the installation easy and the settings are even for a beginner not difficult to understand. I would recommend this plugin!

Excellent product and support

The plugin is amazing. What is even better is the support I received. The guy was very helpful and answered all my questions, fixing all I asked.

I can’t believe this is free!

I have spent many hours looking for a plugin that has this type of functionality. The options right out of the box are more than any other free post slide plugin and am happy to move forward with the rest of this site. Thank you devs!
