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.

Features

  • 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.
