looks good but difficult to size
By , for WP 4.3.1

Simple to set up and looks great.
Found the template sizes for the slider odd and only one worked - the rest result in a stretch or distorted images.
Tried inline css using a div to control the size but can't seem to reduce the height.

Plugin continues to improve!

I've been using this plugin since it was "Responsive Slider for Developers" -- it was easy to customize on a client per-client basis, and was always very stable and easy for both me to set up and the client to use.

On my latest project, I found this updated version and decided to give it a try rather than just copying over my hacked-up version of Responsive Slider for Developers.

I'm super happy with the new and improved HG Flexslider! Haven't had to mess with the plugin code at all, plus the new feature for adding a flexslider of page attachments to any page using the [flexslider] shortcode came in SUPER handy, saving me tons of development time in enabling flexslider-style galleries on Pages that mimic the look and feel of the home page flexslider. I didn't even know that was a feature TBH, I just popped a [flexslider] shortcode in a page to see what happened, and BAM, all my gallery images were there.

Gotta love it when that happens.

In any case, best no-frills, easy to implement slider out there, IMO.

qtranslate conflict since 1 year
By , for WP 4.0

The hg slider disappear when language switched on page.
The plugin not working with qtranslate since 1 year, sad that the developers could not fix the problem.

Easy to set up. Good job

This plugin was easy to setup. I converted to use in my theme as a function instead of a plugin in no time. Thanks.

Nice responsive slider

Though some coding is needed, it works better than several free responsive sliders I've tried.

Very Good Starting Point
By , for WP 3.5.1

The plugin is targeted at developers and does its job really well!

I have a feeling that those who are voting it down have failed to read the description and are not comfortable with the implementation steps.

It has allowed me to create a simple slider for websites that I'm building.

Nice plugin

There should be a chance to specify the behaviour of the slideshow in admin area (not speaking of flexslider setings, but for example a selection for show/noshow the title and excerpt of a slide)
