Great plugin
By , for WP 4.5.2

Great plugin, great support.

Upgrade to the paid version and do all sorts of wonderful things with it!

Lite Version too cheap + Pro not Pro
By , for WP 4.5.2

Lite Version does nothing else but show some pics...
Pro Version does have a lot of gimmics - but no Layers... too cheap...
Homepage years old with blog items very outdated...
Best of all - not a single Demo to see what you get... No TEXT Layer found - not a single word about it.

The scaling on mobile device as per given parameters in slider settings fails
By , for WP 4.5.1

It did not scale down properly on mobile devices.
Not even on paid version

The best slider in my collection!
By , for WP 4.5

I started using Soliloquy after looking for a slider that would load slides fast enough for a specific project I had from a client. I needed a slider that would load slides fast enough to display them without flicker. Soliloquy is that slider. I liked it so much I purchased their "lifetime" package so that I got all the addons as well.

I use this slider for everything I need right now. It's brilliant on PC AND on mobile. Apart from the fact that it doesn't appear to do layers (I'll look at that sometime) it's fast loading, simple to set up and very versatile.

Now for the cream on the cake... I have never had better support from any plugin vendor - EVER. My support requests have been answered after hours, on weekends and promptly too. The result - I am an exceptionally happy customer. For those people I read in previous reviews I wonder which slider they are looking at. I'm now using the Soliloquy slider for scores of slides on several sites and it's the best - EVERY time.

Thoroughly recommended. Five stars for product and five stars for support. Thanks to Norman, Chris and others I have had support from instantly when I needed it.

I like it but
By , for WP 4.4.2

I like it, but all slides must have the same time duration and I need different time for each slide..

Excellent Plugin
By ,

I would rate this as the best WordPress responisive slider that is available. I tried 6 others and all of them had glitches or bugs. It took about 5 minutes to have a professional looking slider set up and it works perfectly on all devices from mobiles to desktop PC's. Also has the SEO feature of adding alt tags and titles to your slides as an extra bonus.

Too basic
By ,

Immediately on starting up, I hit the deal breaker - you can't even select an image from the media library! You have to upload afresh. An ill-disguised attempt to force you to pay for the full version. Now uninstalled again (after some alarms - it's shown in the plugin list as Response, not as Soliloquy!)

Free versions unusable
By , for WP 4.4.2

You can't add pictures from your Library. Free version is so limited I uninstalled it.
Didn't try the paid version and I won't.

About 500 '500 Errors'
By , for WP 4.4.1

I bought the personal license. Built my first slider. Hit 'Apply', got a white page and '500 Error'.
Tried again, Hit 'Save', got the same '500 Error'.
Went to documentation.
Saw Instructions: "Get Chrome Browser" (I will not!).
Disable theme and go back to 'current theme' (I will not!).
Disable all plugins, re-activate one by one until you find the problem: (I will not, my theme and ALL of my plugins worked perfectly before adding Soliloquy Premium).
I FOUND the problem: It is called Soliloquy!
One more note: Soliloquy's 'Support' section is simply filled with problems which have not been responded to in months.
I deleted Soliloquy, installed a FREE slider, and everything works perfectly.

Lite version is simple and easy to use
By , for WP 4.4.1

Finally, a WordPress slider plugin that is responsive and one you can truly count on. I tried Soliloquy Lite before I deciding to upgrade (and happy I did). The Lite version is simple, easy and does what it has to do. I trust the team behind this product.
