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. >:(

I don't know what to rate this as, because its good but frustratingly limited.

I see lots of people giving 1 star, saying there are better alternatives, but not giving any recommendations to alternatives which is really annoying.

My only 2 issues with this slider are:

1) The continuous build up of "ID's" which isn't sustainable for a website.

The only options to replace a slider, is to bin it, and add another, which automatically gives a higher ID number.... Why isn't there a simple "replace" option?? ADD A REPLACE OPTION!!!

2) With the software itself to create the sliders.... The amount of times I've gone to edit a slider, only to open it and find it BLANK after having saved it!! having to rebuild it over and over again.

Like i say this is a powerful tool, but has some ridiculous limitations stopping it from being as good as it should be, and the developers seem to not be bothering to sort it out.

To much bugs

To much bugs. Only 2 plus

Buggy to update
By , for WP 4.4

I have tried this plugin on a couple of sites, and the update process for 8.1 and 8.2 versions has been very buggy. The program seems to update, but doesn't notify WP that it is finished, so WP hangs, and I have to manually delete the maintenance file to put site back up.

Update 9/4/2015 - Updates to 8.4 and 8.5 still hang as well.

Update 1/5/2016 - Just did the update to 8.6 and guess what, still the same problem. It installs the update but never notifies that it completes. Still had to manually delete maintenance file to get site back up. Out of the many plugins I have used on multiple WP sites, this is the only plugin that I have this problem with.

Not useful at all

Very, very and very worth to give a try...please be patient!
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've been using Wow Slider for almost one half years and find it's so great. The problem is you should create sliders off-line on your PC(download the exe file),
test them, then when they're done, upload them to WordPress. Simple and effective. Believe me its animation effects are so stunning. Very, very and very worth to give a try...
Please get the patient and give more applause to the wowslider team.

many (much) better options available
By , for WP 4.2.2

I purchased this, along with other products from apycom.com. I am not impressed and wish I had my money back. There are many wordpress plugins that do a better job than this does.

Nice slider !

I like this slider and use it on my 3 websites, so thanks.

Find another option!!!
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have used WOWslider several times on several client sites. I had read good things and decided to buy the unlimited license. Now after really using it repeatedly, I run into issues often!!! It's difficult in some ways that aren't obvious at first, then I have issues with opening past projects. There are a few buggy things as well that I've learned to work around but that's kind of ridiculous. There are so many other choices out there. This one is not worth the time or money to integrate it. Beware.

Good Slider
