Easyrotator: my right plugin
By , for WP 4.1

I've been looking for the right slide plugin.
They were always too heavy.
Easyrotator is light and has a fantastic editor to manage. In addition as I have any question the support is prompt and kind.
I've just installed and I'm sure that I will find many other development opportunities

Exemplary support for a world-class product
By , for WP 4.1

I'm a relative WP newbie and have been searching for a highly-flexible, fully-featured rotator that would enable me to present dynamic as well as static content in either my sidebar or within posts and pages. So glad to have found it. The free version offered plenty of options, but I really wanted a classy, professional look to my work and didn't want to waste any more hours exploring clunky, buggy alternative rotator plugins that didn't measure up to this. So the $20 for the Pro version was a real no-brainer -- it's been a genuine bargain. I had a few support questions both before and after I bought the Pro version and Drew responded with amazingly clear advice and recommendations faster than I could have imagined -- or even hoped for.

Worked First Time
By , for WP 4.1

I have to say it worked first time for me and very well. The free version did all my customer needed and aside from having to install software I liked it a lot

Hugely complex and annoying install process
By , for WP 4.0

You have to sign up to the email newsletter, and install Adobe AIR. And Flash plugin. Oh, and you can't use Chrome to edit it - or I couldn't anyway. There's lots of guidance to help you do all this but to be honest, it would be better not to have to go through such a business in the first place.

However, once loaded and working, the plugin seems to work pretty well. But get a nice cup of tea before you sit down to set this one up. And a disposable email.

The trouble installing was worth it!

I had difficulty installing the WP version of EasyRotator. But the tech support got right back to me with a solution that worked. (If you're also having trouble, try installing the application when you're logged out of your WP site. That worked for me as I installed it on my test WP site on my local server.)

When I got it installed, it was EASY AS PIE! SUCCESS THE VERY FIRST TIME! BAM! Last month I paid someone $200+ to build the same thing that I created through this plug-in in 5 minutes! Fantastic. Thank you!

Fantastic!

For many years I have hand-crafted my own sliders for websites. This plugin now saves me days and days of work.... In addition, they are visible on iPhone, iPad, etcetera., and the plugin is free.

as per the other one star reviews

downright awful, in every possible metric. Not even worthy of my time in explaining why it sucks so bad, since everyone else has already said it. Avoid, like the plague

Deceitful and Waste of Time
By , for WP 3.9.1

HAD to install desktop app to use.
HAD to give my email to use plugin.
Screenshots showed features available to PRO users only, and did not make clear what little features came with the free plugin.

I'm sure the paid version is great but the free version was a waste of time.

5 minutes uninstall
By , for WP 3.9.1

Sorry guys, i can see a lot of effort here, but it's in the wrong direction.

I could barely stand the long installation process (the desktop app installation, the email activation, the unrequested emails on my box), but i supposed it was all to make the slider easy to use.

It is not. Preview is not working so i have to save and exit and preview my page instead, dynamic data is not working (titles and excerpt are not displaying)

Moreover, if i want to unistall the plugin, i still have to manually unistall two different apps from my desktop.

Sorry guys, not for me.

Excellent plugin. Excellent support.

It's a mystery why anyone would rate this plugin below a four. I continue to be impressed by the sophisticated design of this plugin. It provides both an easy to use interface for non-techie people while at the same time allowing programmers the flexibility to get in and edit the code (within the GUI!). I've tried other slide plugins and none of them were designed to be as flexible and completely customizable as this one.

I paid for Pro and have been extremely impressed with the speediness and quality of the responses to cases I've opened. I've opened three cases and not one time have I needed to follow up the first response from DWUser with anything other than "thank you!" With at least one other paid plugin I tried, both of the support cases I lodged with them came back with "sorry, that's not possible" responses, which is why I'm no longer their customer and am extremely happy with EasyRotator.

Also, I loved that I was able to fully utilize EasyRotator for free and get completely comfortable with it before upgrading to Pro for access to more swish templates and support.
