I really wish that the interface was more user friendly than this, but oh well. Looks like none of the slider plugins are up to that task of providing a good one.
Still, I could overlook that if this worked. Instead, I fail to see a "Add Slider" option in the admin sidebar. I have the "Slides" menu with All Slides, Add New Slide, and Settings. But without the Add Slider this plugin doesn't work.
