Does what it says, and Supported by Author
By , for WP 4.5.1

I'm thankful for Mr. Douglass Karr who personally helped me find the answer to why the ad images were not displaying. Turns out it was something with my theme, but a quick little CSS insert into my style.css and it was back up and operational.

This program has lots of flexibility in options, and does exactly what it says.

Best way to get help I found, is to go to the authors website and ask. Don't use the WordPress support system. I got an answer instantly by doing this, vs. waiting a week or two with no response on the wordpress plugin page.

Works great
By , for WP 4.3

very quick and easy to set up and get running.

works great, need some background and centering control
By , for WP 4.2.2

As I said, works great.
but... is ugly. A little control on formating, transparent background, margins/padding, AND centering is needed. I tried to 'fix' with css but the widget overrides the css.

Super easy to use and great support
By , for WP 4.1.1

The plugin was exactly what I was looking for: cycle through various images my sidebar and allow navigation when an image was clicked. Installation and configure is exactly what you would expect: add the widget to the location you want the images to display, choose options for basic settings related to how to display the images, and add the images. Better still is the support. After updating many plugins, I noticed that Image Rotator was having an issue loading the pictures. They promptly replied to me email, offered to investigate my particular issue, and ultimately solved my problem. I couldn't be happier.

Waste of Time
By , for WP 4.0

Links to external sites is non existent. When I click the + sign to add pictures, I get looped back to my front page layout screen. So there is no way to add pictures for the plugin to rotate....

images get cropped
By , for WP 4.0

some images get cropped differently in safari than in firefox.
Image real size 528x140 (is size 475x126px in safari (retina issue?) and 528x140 in firefox)
Image real size 377x100 (is size 337x89 in safari (retina issue?) and 377x100 in firefox)
