This plugin allows you to create a simple responsive slider that displays the featured image, along with the title and excerpt from each post.
Not *exactly* as advertised. You say, "The slideshow is also responsive and will automatically adjust for the screen it is being displayed on." But you don't say that it drops the display content on small screens, eg. smart phones. I would say that the slides, then, are responsive only partially.
When I approached your help folks, they said, "The child theme has code that is hiding the excerpt for the slider on mobile devices since the text needs to be so small to display correctly on mobile. You can edit the child themes style.css file and remove the code that is hiding the excerpt, but you will also need to add code to reduce the size of the text so it displays correctly."
So, not 100% responsive without editing the code. Bummer.
This plugin is perfect: light and simple. But I can't use it since I need to show images not related to posts/pages.
I've tried this several times. Recently with executive Pro child theme. The thing looks good until I load the page on my iPad Mini. Landscape works half the time and portrait never. Settings dont seem to have exact control on smaller screens. Too bad because on most screens it works fine. Ive moved on to a paid solution that is no headaches.
Like that I can choose to feature posts or pages, very cool!
Genesis itself is a great platform. I'm using the Executive Pro theme and I'm using this plugin for my homepage slider. (You can see mine slider at 3DForged.com.)
I did have a little trouble sorting the posts in the order I wanted them to show up, but ultimately I solved the problem by using the 'sort by date' option.
Overall, excellent plugin and I was able to edit it to fit the style of my site!
A must for my Genesis sites.
I wish there where a few more features to choose from, but I do love the simplicity of this plugin so maybe it's fine just the way it is ;-)
This still works great for Genesis users. It's simple and easy to use.
Installed plugin but it doesn't show up in my wp admin menus!!!
The most crucial functionality is broken, making this slider plugin pretty annoying to work with...
Even though you set a character limit the plugin ignores this and shows either to little or to much text.
This is not acceptable.
Excellent free responsive slider solution for Genesis.
