You want to add a slider to your WordPress web site ? Follow the guide !
There are many sliders / carrousels for WordPress some free some premium (you have to pay for it) that can be added to your site as a plugin.
Right now, I have pointed out two:
- MetaSlider : composed of 4 sliders (Nivo Slider, Flex Slider, Coin Slider and Responsive Slides) ... I am testing it !
- Soliloquy is often quoted as the best one : to be tested.
A few extra to be tested : Cyclone, Flex Slider 2, Layer Slider !
The one I have dismissed :
- Len Slider : often quoted ... but after test not interesting at all. The UI does not fit a 1280x1024 screen (and there's no scroll bar), banners are resized to 500x200, and it does not seem to be responsive !
Slider Revolution is often quoted as best ... but is premium !Considering there's a good choice of free ones, I will stick to these.
To finish, 4 lists and a comparison:
7 Best free wordpress slider plugins : a list not really interesting.
7 Best free responsive image sliders wordpress plugins : Not the same as the previous one. The former three (Responsive Slider, Soliloquy, Flex Slider) are often quoted, the later four are only quoted in that article ! ? !
The best WordPress slider plugins by Elegant Theme: a detailed list (premium and free) with quite a few readers comments (quite oriented to the integration of themes proposed by Elegant Theme).
The best free responsive sliders plugins for wordpress : not much details on each slider but really good comments from readers.
Best wordpress slider : a thorough comparison between 3 sliders (Soliloquy, Nivo Slider, Meteor Slides) but seems quite oriented toward Soliloquy !
Happy comparison !
