How to enable unsupported HTML tags in slider content?

By default, SEO Slider uses the same markup filters as the WordPress editor: do_shortcode, wp_kses_post & wpautop. To remove these, you can use the ‘seo_slider_content_output’ filter by adding the following to your child themes functions.php file:

add_filter('seo_slider_content_output', function( $default, $raw ) {
    return $raw;
} );

How is this slider SEO friendly?

SEO Slider has been built with SEO in mind. We’ve taken extra care to ensure that it’s as lightweight as possible with only one JavaScript file and one CSS file. We’ve also added some extra schema markup to help search engines understand the content. While no slider is perfect for SEO, we’ll do our best to make sure this plugin is as SEO friendly as possible.

Is this plugin accessibility ready?

This plugin uses the Slick Slider JavaScript plugin which supports keyboard arrow key navigation. Give it a try yourself at using just the keyboard to navigate through the slides.

I don’t leave many plugin reviews, but for this one I’m making an exception. Too many sliders are bloated, offering every option under the sun, making some of them almost unusable. This one is different. It has what you need, and only what you need, to get a working attractive slideshow up in a minimal amount of time. The only other feature I’d like to see is an ability to reorder slides within a slider, but that’s not a deal-breaker. The benefits vastly outweigh the tiny wishlist.

Some sliders are clunky and can slow the site down, but this one is great. This usually comes bundled with one of their themes, which I would also recommend.

Just wanted to say this is a fantastic and under-installed slider. Works well, amazing options, and is flawless on Genesis. (actually running “Business Pro” child theme from SEO themes). Hopefully more people can find out about this lil gem. Thanks guys!
