WoW Slider Sucks!
By ,

As a webdeveloper i am always on the lookout for plugins and software to make my clients sites pop. I purchased the wow slider based upon the information provided on their website and was excited about the potential.

Unfortunately i had issues from the start, kept crashing and when i would save a project to work on later, it would not open and i would have to begin from scratch. Over and over this happened, very disappointing to say the least. I tried to get support which did not come. Still waiting from last email explaining that functions are not working such as inserting into a page, the issue of projects not opening after being saved and more.

I am very unhappy with the support provided by the creators of this plugin. As most of us know support is the key to a great product. If there is no support then the product become useless. The only support that they provide is making sure they got my money.

Lastly, when purchasing plugins, caution must be employed. It is hard to judge if you are making the right decision until you actually purchase, then it is too late if you bought a lemon sigh........

Spam? No, thanks

They ask your email, then send you a lot of spam. Annoying.
Oh, also, doesn't work, but maybe that's me.

Stick with the free version
By , for WP 4.0

Tried the free product, loved it so much I paid a license fee. Haven't been able to use it since - files just will not load into WordPress any more -- and absolutely no support from the WowSlider people. (12 months support was part of what I purchased.)

Pity, because it was a great product with loads of potential.

Stick to the free version.

Great potrntial but faulty product with zero support
By , for WP 4.0

I have only used this product to create a single slide show but it has actually got worse as I have moved from 6.4 to 6.7. It had issues but they have got so bad now that publishing a slideshow corrupts the file and the resulting ZIO file will not load into Word Press.

Prior to this I had an issue where the text on the slide was displayed out of position when the browser was minimised then viewed again. Two weeks of chasing up and no useful help whatsoever.

I have spent a clients money on this and it has been the worst investment I have made in a WP plugin, ever.

Do not buy this product as it does not work!

Complicated interface, overpriced upgrade
By , for WP 4.0

Painful to work with - requires an external program to create sliders. Why not do all work in the plug-in? Interface is confusing and hard to understand. The business edition is over priced. When I tried to install it, my anti-virus program indicated it might be malware. Asked for a refund - company refused.

Try Meta Slider. All work is done in the plugin. Interface is intuitive and easy to use. The pro edition is reasonably priced. Vendor offers a money back guarantee.

Good one but a little bit complecated
By , for WP 4.0

I used your slider for 2-3 website of mine. Previous version was quite easy to work for me but this update seems a little complected for the person like me whose are not expert in coding or other things. I used your updated slider on my current website Safe Home Security but later i changed it. But still its good to use and attractive one to enhance the sites design.

Excellent Design and Simplicity
By , for WP 4.0

Incredibly simplistic design. Minimalistic approach is Great work to those at WOW Slider. I bought the software after using the demo for one project. It is so easy to use that I made the investment. Best buy of the year so far!

Instead of piling up a bunch of stuff in my WordPress admin, I create my slider on the PC then upload the whole slider file package to WordPress. It couldn't be more simple. Thanks WOW Slider!
