Featured WordPress Plugin: Slidedeck

Slidedeck is a jQuery Slider Plugin which allows you to easily insert a shiny slider to display images and featured posts on your WordPress website. It comes with two versions: free and pro. You can use this across your site and there is even a handy snippet that you can stick in your template to use as a header.


  • Slidedeck comes with a whole load of features. Here are just a few:
  • SEO Friendly
  • Autoplay
  • Slider Mode
  • Full CSS customization
  • Custom Skins
  • Smart Slidedeck
  • Touch screen support (this is for the Pro version only but it’s a fantastic feature!)

Our Mini Review

I love things that make your WordPress website look like you’ve got crazy design & programming skills when you actually have none at all. That makes me a big fan. I especially love the Smart Slidedeck feature which allows you to feed featured posts from your blog into the slider. What I would love is to get access to some of those Touch screen features on the free version but hey, I guess those guys gotta make some money.

  1. Hey guys,

    This is Dave, lead developer at digital-telepathy, first off I’d like to say thanks to WPMU.org for the coverage of SlideDeck, we really appreciate it :-)

    Jack, in response to your question about using Pages, we are currently in a private beta release right now that takes advantage of WordPress 3.0’s custom post types capabilities to open up the kinds of posts you can use for our Smart SlideDecks – including pages. We should be releasing the final version of this update early next week, so stay tuned for an announcement!

    Thanks again for the great coverage Siobhan!
