Probably good but not for me. I found it not really user friendly
By ,

I tried this plug-in. It installs well and I didn't get any error code.
I feel like disoriented and I feel like not really user friendly.
I hope I could say different but it is how I see the plug-in.

Best slider around

Sliders are disabled
By , for WP 3.5.1

I don't know if it has to do with my wordpress version but my sliders are always disabled. I insert shortcode on post but nothing shows.

I enable them again on sliders panel they show ok but when i click on one of them in order to get the shortcode or do any modification i get this http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/441/screenshot20130328at536.png/

any help or ideas because as a slider this plugin looks very promising!

Great Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

I was very satisfied with the plugin. Very easy to integrate into my site. And easy to use. There are a few things that can be updated and worked out but 2.0 was a huge enhancement and I'm excited to see new features and controls added over time.

Thank you for this great FREE plugin. Works wonderful and I will continue to use it.

Clunky and Error Prone
By , for WP 3.5.1

I was happy to find a slider that actually had captions in the control tabs, but after trying to work with it for an hour I decided it wasn't any better than simply hard-coding a slider in the site.

It's the user interface; it honestly needs to be scrapped and replaced entirely. It's counter-intuitive and hard to use. I'm a theme developer, if it's hard for me to use it would be impossible for my clients. Here's some specific problems:

1) Image uploader doesn't use WordPress media uploader, so you can't add an image that's already in your media library.

2) It doesn't allow you to do basic things like specify the dimensions of your slider or images, that's controlled by skins.

3) Changing skins on a slideshow is a ridiculous process - you have to save your slider before you can change the skin. Then, after you change the skin it asks if you're sure, then once you save it, it disables the slideshow so you have to re-enable it and save it again. Then each skin can have different fields to fill in. After changing skins my captions were lost and I had to put them in again. Once skin kept giving me field errors when I tried to save, after trying everything, I was finally FORCED TO DELETE THE ENTIRE SLIDE GROUP, making me start back at the beginning.

4) There are no directions on how to add your slide to your site, you have to come back to the WordPress.org plugin listing for that info.

If you are power user and up for making your own skin you might get some use out of this plugin, otherwise don't bother.

Exemplary developer, fast growing plugin!
By , for WP 3.5.1

After searching around for image sliders, and not being able to find something even close to what i needed I ran into LenSlider, downloaded it, installed, and proceeded to customise it for my project...

After much trial and error, I figured I was not going to be able to customise it by myself without sweating blood first, so i wrote an email to Igor Sazonov (the developer), where I asked him his advice to achieve the desired functionality and within SECONDS he answered my request and instead of giving me advice, he actually started working on my case!!! Now I have EXACTLY what I needed, FOR FREE, and most importantly, Igor is both a code Guru and a great person to deal with, which made the whole process a truly gratifying experience.

As i say in the title of this post, the developer is absolutely exemplary, both in his programming skills and human relations, I could not possibly be more happy with having chosen this LenSlider, and from now on, I will use it as my first choice!

Great work on the plugin, Igor, and thank you ever sooooo much for all your help, see you in Piter for a coffee next month! :)

Couldn't get it to work yet, I'll have to troubleshoot futher
By , for WP 3.5

Installed, activated, tried to add a slide and it fails with the 2 themes I tried. I can't add by upload, url tag, or any other way.

I need to troubleshoot the matter at a later time. For now an even rating is all I can give.

Great slide with custom skins!
By , for WP 3.5

I have used many different sliders on clients' sites, but this one is by far the easiest to customize. The developer is very quick to respond to questions and very helpful!

I can't wait to see what the developer does to improve this :)

Great jquery slider with good features and skin options
By , for WP 3.5

This is a good slider that offers skin and output options that I couldn't find in any other jquery plugin (Specifically titles to the side with corresponding slides) It gets the job done well and very customizable. Fast support too.

the dare-serpent skin, shows up with a scrollbar ...? not for purpose i suppose ;)

After looking for 2 days, finally a real nice slider, - thx.
