Easy and adaptive
By , for WP 3.5.1

Easy to implement and enough options to go trough.
4 stars for now because it doesn't support jquery 2.0.0 atm and it installs a lot of other oik plugins. (though not al have to be activated)

Bloatware
By , for WP 3.5.1

This might be a create plugin... but when it installs 8-10 additional things, it immediately generated a panic... "OMG, what have I done to my site!"

No worries, it seems to uninstall OK, and can be deleted (which is exactly what I did).

Installs a lot of other oik plugins just to get a simple tiny slideshow running.
too much bloat for my personal use.
Only useful if you're already using a bunch of oik plugins

You need to install A LOT!

I searched for a simple-slider plugin. This one said "you need to install the oik base plugin".
But the base plugin is not a simple tiny background-plugin (the slider itself is some tiny plugin, with not much settings). The base plugin installed NINE other plugins.
So you got :

  • oik-nivo-slider (what you want)
  • oik-base-plugin (as needed)
  • oik bbpress (even if you don't have bbpress installed)
  • oik bob bing wide shortcodes
  • oik BuddyPress signup email (even without BuddyPress)
  • oik bwtrace
  • oik custom header image
  • oik email signature
  • oik fiels
  • oik shortcode help shortcodes
  • oik sidebar

If you already use oik-stuff and don't need much settings, this is propably the slideshow for you.
