Works Pretty Well
By , for WP 3.7.1

Simple, easy to use, and responsive. I can load pictures from my computer, media library, or even a NextGen gallery.

A couple of shortcomings:

  1. The captions in a slide are not clickable, i.e., while you can set up the slide to take the user to another page/address when the picture is clicked, the caption within the slide is not part of the link so clicking on the caption doesn't do anything. The caption should be moved inside the anchor link so clicking anywhere on the slide, including the caption, takes the user to the link target. This would be especially useful for slides where the caption takes up a good portion of the slide area when the site is being viewed with a smart phone.
  2. The captions don't support HTML. If I could add a link tag in my caption that reads "click here" or "read more," that would have partially alleviated the first problem.
    easy and working, not perfect

    Sometimes we can see some new plugins which are somehow special. Weptile is one of those kind of plugins with a working manner and easy interface. It's cool for those who are not sensitive about their site looking in different browsers, because the first eye-catching problem of this plugin is its challenges with firefox and IE; but it works relatively good with chrome and opera (mostly in case of image url, style and transitions). With a glance to the other reviews of this plugin we can understand that the main complaint is about PHP and CSS codes which are not tested enough to present an integrated always working composition. I myself -as a newcomer in wp world- am very interested to check the next versions of this plugin out! Hope the author do not make users heads over heels :)

    Works just as described

    Great plugin, easy to operate

    Super easy to use, works perfect.

    Just need to figure out how to show different images depending on the page or category.

    good plugin, some small issues
    By , for WP 3.5

    Nice and intuitive, and works like a charm. Some small issues:
    - layout of the widget in the WP backend is cluttered in W7+Firefox: the buttons don't align well;
    - the slider isn't placed in a <p> tag, so I have to repeat all styling on a .widget p on .slider-wrapper;
    - I'm really missing a 'swipe' transition option -- a 'slide in' where simultaneously the original image slides out.

    Functional

    yes, functional (fully responsive) slideshow which easily works with media library.
