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.

Remove this virus!

This has got to be a joke
By , for WP 3.8.1

I was considering buying the "Unlimited Websites" option, so I downloaded the free version to see what it was about. So glad I did that!

This is an app you need to use to generate code for the slider, so it's not just a nice plugin or code I can put into my template, you need to use the app! What the hell? This is literally a program you need to install on your computer to generate the HTML, CSS and JavaScript, then cut and paste it into where you want it. You need to drag-and-drop the images into the program to generate the code you would use! Wow, indeed.

Use of non-GPL compatible JavaScript in this plugin.
