Not sure how anyone could give this 5 stars

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.

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.
