Incredibly complicated
By , for WP 4.4

Never managed to get the slider to work. Spent days examining, reading about and then implementing. Nada. Far too complicated for 'normal' WP users.

Terrible Slider
By , for WP 4.2.4

This slider hasn't been updated in years, then lo and behold it got updated about a week ago. All I can tell is they added some obtrusive CSS code that puts borders and backgrounds on your sliders. Now I have to go through each website and override this css with my own code, using !important no less. If I remove it from the plugin's css it will just get overwritten when the plugin updates again (if ever).

Also, this is the most unintuitive slider I've ever used. You have to input the page's ID and the ordering usually has a mind of its own. It has a few decent settings but nothing amazing. It might work well if you want to display your posts/content as a featured item instead of banners. I guess I can blame the previous webdesigner for that mistake and not using a traditional banner slider like MetaSlider.
