The admin functionality is fine, but compared to really good responsive sliders, such as Meta Slider, it just doesn't do it. Title alignment is cut off if you use excerpts, there's no smart cropping of the image, if you don't use excerpts, the title looks ok until you are at a mobile device viewport, then it's floating up and outside its container. I won't even get into the thick grey border.

More Work to Make "Workable" than to use Another Slider

The pagination links (arrows and bullets) don't do anything - why even have them?

The silly excerpt bar cuts off half of your image because it floats on the left over the image instead of just having the image sectioned on the right and it on the left

There's no excerpt in the mobile version, so the image you resized for the desktop version now looks stupid, and people just see pictures with no reason to tap on them

I think something used in a demo for a paid theme should at least have the features all other sliders have, or at least some options so people don't have to screw around with the CSS.

When are you going to update this plugin to make it compatible with wordpress4.5

Not at all happy with genesis team, not updating since 3.3.3

Not ready for production use

The idea is great, but...

- In Firefox there are artifacts http://imgur.com/tD3EVVf
- There is no way to select posts for slider with simple checkboxes without creation of a separate category or tag
- The slider is not responsive indeed (just change browser window width and get scared by what you see)

Great plugin

I love this plugin. Can you make a change though? When using pages in the slider, it would be easier to choose the pages and order them, without having to get the page number. Also, with version 4.3.1 the comma spacing of the pages means nothing for the order in which they appear on slider. Ordering by date seems to be the only way I can control this, but the date order is from most recent to oldest. A bit more customization would be appreciated for page options. thank you!

I luv this!

This is a great plug-in ... thank you!

Drops Content

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.

Please add supports to only images

This plugin is perfect: light and simple. But I can't use it since I need to show images not related to posts/pages.

Not good enough for Mobile
By ,

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!
