  1. @ovidiu Yes, currently we have only the manual insertion of template tag option. This is because, many people have varied type of theme designs, and most of the bloggers have all different requirements for the featured posts slider. Like some of us want it to be displayed on front page, some on category pages, also I have some notes which state that people are using it in sidebar. So, it was very difficult to guess the exact hook to which I could have tied the function.
    But yours is a great suggestion, and I will definitely look more deeper into it to find out some universal way, so that who do not wish to make any changes to their template files can also be comfortable to use this plugin. Thanks for your valuable inputs.

    @James Thanks a lot for your wishes. I love this blog, its design, its content and the way you write…and all that wpmu.org offers! It is my pleasure that I could develop this tiny resource and could contribute to this vast open source community. Thanks again for starting this contest and giving opportunity to us, developers, to spread our work. Hope I get some good votes in this contest!
    I am having a question, in your contest post you have mentioned something about the badge. How can I get it?

  2. tejaswini,
    a very good plan indeed. cute profile is good too. but a widget version of smooth slider is really good. To start with atleast users can add them to sidebars.

  3. @suresh hmm..I too feel the widget option is a very good idea. Thanks for posting this suggestion, that are all the suggestions and inputs which would help make this Plugin a good and useful resource on WordPress. Long live WordPress.
