Has some options but I didn't test'em: Doesn't allow to show featured/on sale etc. Lack of options made me uninstall it at once

Works Well

I just upgraded to version 1.3. While it is different from the earlier version it was fairly simple to recreate the slider I had before. I'm not trying to do anything fancy and it works well for my needs. See https://unicornbags.com The new version does allow one to create as many sliders as desired and place them anywhere with individualized short codes. It also offers more customization options than the earlier version. I wanted to display Title, Learn More, Price, and Add to cart under each item. The Add to Cart button was missing. I finally realized that "General height of items" needed to be larger as the button was getting cut off. This item defines the space available for all parts of the item rather than just the photo. Perhaps a better description of each item would be helpful.

Basically functional

A very basic slider with little customizability. Simply enough to set up and slap on a page. But, it only gives you one slider, so if you were hoping to make different sliders for different pages, it doesn't seem to be able to do that. It only allows you to determine which products are shows by category, not by tags. Also, it's responsiveness to smaller screens leaves much to be desired. If all you need is a single, basic slider, this can do the job. But, I can't really recommend it.

Buggy, doesn’t work on php7

Plugin feels like abandoned, causes various errors. In my case, this plugin messes the whole site after switching to php7, creating some php error resulting in a blank page. Someone found a way to correct php code but that's too messy for me. I don't want to do anything with this plugin.

Information under images bug fix.

There is a bug in this otherwise excellent plug in. Be sure to set "General height of items" to a sufficient height otherwise the title and other information does not show (css problem with overflow hidden). This height will not affect the images since only the value of the width has an effect.
