I spent days (literally) trying to find a slideshow plugin. I must have installed and tried out at least 10 different plugins. I didn't need anything particularly complicated but they either didn't work with my theme, were insanely difficult to use, weren't at all what I had in mind visually, couldn't handle multiple slideshows, or subscribed to the psychic school of documentation.
I didn't realize EasyRotator would install an application on my computer until the install process. I might have passed it by if I'd known, but I'm so glad I didn't. The installation instructions are A1 - everything that support documentation should be, and hardly ever is. They look long because they include a screenshot of every step along the way, but trust me, this is a GOOD thing. No guessing! The installation process is actually quite quick. I'm not new to WordPress, but if you are, this is definitely the slider plugin for you.
Once installed, the interface was so intuitive that I didn't even have to look at the help. I was able to get multiple separate slideshows up and running in record time, and they were exactly what I wanted. There are a number of stylistic choices in the free version, and they are nice ones, but if you want even more, and advanced features, like video and sound, there is a pro version.
I had one problem, with the blue "Welcome" box loading at the top of every page in WordPress to tell me the program had been successfully installed. Tech support got back to me in a few hours, and with the utmost friendliness and professionalism, pointed out the completely obvious "Dismiss" link that solved the problem. They answered subsequent questions about administering multiple websites and/or using multiple computers succinctly, and even more promptly. And all of this for free!
I am so impressed, and am looking forward to using the sidebar widget on another website. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this excellent plugin and your stellar support.
This is wonderful. I have a theme schematic that's doesn't handle plugins too well. This plugin worked on that theme, and of course every other theme.
Sure, it takes a second to get used to. But once you're used to handling the controls, the amazing performance and flexibility it gives you is unparalleled.
I know some people complain about image cropping and all that, but if you really practice with the settings, you'll get the hang of it, and it'll become second nature. It's not a bandwidth hog, and won't affect your YSlow scores or page speed/optimization -- if you were using a clunky plugin before, this will probably improve it.
I'm using this on all my domains and replacing all other slider plugins with this.
This tool pulls every type of rotator you want to toi do all in one and allows you to be so creative all over the place! LOVE IT!
I love it!
As simple as it is, is the feature. A Slider is very good to set up a modern blog or Website. The plugin works fine and the settings are easy to understand and to set. The free Layouts are good enough for me.
Thank your for the fast and good support. He fixed my problem in a few hours. I had not to wait mor then an hour for an new responsemail.
It works great on my sites, but are users required to download Air? If so that might be a problem.
I am not prepared to sell a website with a plugin that requires the end-user to install third-party software. If the client is savvy enough to understand that this is not weird or some scam, they are also asvvy enough to buil their own WordPress website.
I have tried many different plug-ins and this is by far the best. It worked well in all browsers and it can be customised fairly easily. Best of all, when I asked a question through support, they came back to me with in 24 hours with the correct solution - something that rarely happens with support.
It's my first to use easy rotators and it's very easy to understand how to operate and finish what I need a few seconds, which save me a huge time to get myself understand jquery and work great on three major browser!!!
This developer completely missed the point of web development.
Plugin is completely useless on linux systems because "web" developer didn't develop a web app for WordPress.
They developed a desktop application using Adobe Air that works with wordpress.
Plugin is completely useless to us and our clients on linux systems. Also, doesn't work on any mobile devices like phones or tablets.
Don't bother installing this plugin or paying for it.
I was looking forward to using this plugin, but it forces you to install Adobe Air.
Upon trying to install it, it errors out and will not install. I'm also on Linux which Adobe Air does not support.
You shouldn't have to install extra software just to use a WordPress plugin.
