it works

It works, just takes a lot of time.

Useless, complete waste of time
By , for WP 3.5.1

Wasted time downloading and installing the program, the interface is pathetic, and then I find out I'm stuck with their stupid watermark unless I pay.
Couldn't find a decent, plain template. Definitely wouldn't spend money on this, will use one of the better and FREE plugins that do the same job BETTER.

Looks great, works bad
By , for WP 3.5.1

When I updating the plugin, all my slides are deleted.

Avoid like the plague!

Scumbags spammed me. Sick to death of this BS. Don't support companies that spam you! I never used their product and never would!!!!!!

OK but not very customisable
By , for WP 3.5.1

I guess it's OK as it's free!

However, it prides itself of not requiring any coding knowledge, but then to do anything you have to sift through painful folders to find the code to change. And all for something as simple as changing the font size.

On the 'responsive' side it may change the image sizes, but it doesn't do anything to the buttons or text, so they take over when viewing on a mobile device.

Image Upload / Add New Slider & Change Layout f.e height and width etc

there is just nothing working....... slider looks great but no possibilities to personalize the layout.

Not really a wordpress plugin
By ,

This plugin just displays slideshows generated with the windows dektop programm "WOW Slider". It does not work with images stored within a wordpress installation, instead you have to work with images stored on a local desktop computer. You then have to upload the whole slideshow including javascript, css and images to your wordpress installation.

Although the generated slideshows are lean for itself, they do not integrate very well into wordpress. There is no way to edit a generated slideshow within wordpress and there is no way to prevent the plugin from loading its own css file.

Bad

Very bad and time taking...

2.7 & 2.8 Does not work in wp 3.5
By , for WP 3.5

I followed the video step by step and I make the slider. I try to add a new one and I get an error message: wrong slider.

I tried different configurations and dedicated a good time but it is not possible.

In option:
Create a slider with WOW Slider app and copy to folder: "./wp-content/plugins/wowslider/import/" the message says: Files to import not found.
