I like that it is fast to show the pics, and swaps quickly, but I would like for people to be able to view the full-size image if they click on it.

the best slideshow-plugin EVER!!
By , for WP 4.4.2

At the launch of my children storysite 3 years ago I have searched and tried a lot of slider-plugins, but finally this (free) WOW-plugin proofed to be the best.

Alas, when I updated my 4.0 version, the slideshows got broken. So I backrolled to the 4.0 version and all is hunky dory again.

I see the today version is already 8.7. But when I read the 1 star reviews, I think I stick by my favo version 4.0.

NEW EXPERIENCE: Today I uploaded a new slideshow, after updating the WOWprogramme on my PC (to 8.7). The making of a slideshow offline is just as awesome as 3 years ago, with even MORE features! In my WP-editor I still use the old plugin 4.0 version, and I uploaded my slideshow there. NO FLAW at all! The older slideshows also stayed intact. :-)

So what are all these one star people do wrong? This WOWSLIDER plugin is the greatest plugin ever!!

Many thanks to the makers, keep up the wonderful job!!

Working great

1 star rating is from those who cannot download a desktop version, save it as WordPress anf upload it as a plugin. Don't know if it is working because I installed plugin first before I installed my published plugin from the desktop app, but it is working great. Thanks!

very bad plugin i've ever seen for wordpress...

Very Easy and Effective
By , for WP 4.3.1

Really surprised at there being any 1-star reviews of this product! I'm giving four stars and not five because not all features come with the free version. But it works extremely well,it's really great and very simple to use, and is value for money if you do chose to purchase it (which I have done).

Good Slider
By , for WP 4.3.1

The only knock I have against this slider is the upgrades aren't free after a certain time period. Other than that it is great for what I use it for. I just don't upgrade unless there is a wp security issue. I like the fact that I can go into the folders and files on my computer after a ftp backup and make css, js or html changes for the slider.

Works very well

I don't know why there is so much 1star!!! It works perfectly just make your slideshow on the desktop app and then import it simples as that

Dissapointed... What a shame
By , for WP 4.2.4

First off, the additional star is simply because the software is nice. Seems like that's as far as it goes. It's a shame it's unreliable. I should have read the reviews here before deciding to purchase this product. I've used the free version with zero problems. Just as soon as I purchase it, I get frustrating problems with this software use on a website I was working on for a client. Not to mention the update for the software's WordPress plugin is still updating after 15 minutes passed... an update I'm thinking may never come. I could have just used the css slides I'm use to creating in Dreamweaver. I purchased this for two reasons: because it was listed as 60% off, and of course mainly for the sake of being able to add it to WordPress. Boy am I so very disappointed. 38 bucks isn't much but it could have been used on some other or a better and more reliable software. >:(
