Confused
By , for WP 4.2.2

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.

A superb free functionality but not user friendly to handle

You got a Wow effect when this is in action. And for free you got a asome slider toy. But the upload plugin, install local softaware, upload slider again and paste shortcodes and ... sucks.

There are better and more useful sliders out there if your project or customers gonna be able to use it.

it works

It works, just takes a lot of time.

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.
