Support » Plugin: Smart Slider 3 » Best Slider Plugin Out There

  • I’ve installed and used 100’s of WP themes over the years and probably 1000 plus plugins. So I have a bit of experience under my belt and know the good, bad and ugly.

    80% of themes and plugins should not even be available. 15% are decent, 4% very good and 1% are exceptional (by that I mean they exceed expectations).

    Smart Slider falls into the 1% category. Revolution Slider likes to think they do, but really it is just an awkward plugin to use and can be frustrating. Other sliders are okay but usually lack ease of use or features.

    Smart Slider wins on all fronts…
    1) Easy to install
    2) Great starter demo slider included with install to help you understand it.
    3) Very good, clear help videos that flow through instruction in a logical and easy to understand process
    4) The user interface (editor) is so easy to use. And if you get stuck, the help videos will keep you rolling along without a problem.
    5) Support responds FAST! Even though I didn’t need support, they replied to my email faster than any other support I have had from other themes and plugins.

    Overall, excellent and very refreshing to find software that just works. If you are looking for an alternative to Revolution Slider, don’t think twice, go with Smart Slider.

    Even if I buy a theme that comes packaged with Revolution Slider, I will delete it and install Smart Slider – it is that much better and easier to use.

    I highly recommend watching the main help videos – they will get you up and running so fast and they show how intuitive and easy their editor tools work.

    P.S. The free version does have limitations but can still give you good basic sliders with professional results. you’ll want to go pro for animations etc. IMO, when you see how easy SS is to use, you be more than happy to pay for the pro version.
