Slider Pro


Slider Pro is a fully responsive and touch-enabled WordPress slider plugin that allows you to create professional and elegant sliders. This slider plugin was built with user experience in mind, providing a clean and intuitive user interface in the admin area and a smooth navigation experience for the end-users.

See a few examples on the slider’s presentation page.


  • Fully responsive on any device
  • Touch support for touch-enabled screens
  • Set different configurations for the same slider, based on screen sizes (using breakpoints)
  • Load images conditionally based on the size of the slider (different image sizes for different screen sizes)
  • Animated and static layers, which can contain text, images or any HTML content
  • Lightbox integration
  • Full Width and Full Window support
  • Carousel layout with looping/infinite scrolling
  • Thumbnails that contain both images and text.
  • Auto height based on inner content size
  • Lazy loading for images
  • Deep linking (link to specific slide inside the slider)
  • Keyboard navigation
  • Clean and intuitive admin interface
  • Preview sliders directly in the admin area
  • Drag and drop slide sorting for easy management of the slides’ order
  • Publish sliders in any post (including pages and custom post types), in PHP code, and widget areas
  • Caching system for quick loading times
  • Optimized file loading. The JavaScript and CSS files are loaded only in pages where there are sliders
  • Load images (e.g., featured images) and content dynamically, from posts (including custom post types), WordPress galleries and Flickr
  • Action and filter hooks to add to the functionality of the slider
  • Import and export sliders between different plugin installations

These videos demonstrate the full capabilities of the plugin.

Premium Add-ons allow you to further extend the functionality of the slider:

  • Custom CSS and JavaScript: Allows you to add custom CSS and JavaScript code to your sliders in a syntax highlighting code editor. It also features a revisions system that will backup all your code edits, allow you to compare between multiple revisions and restore a certain revision.
  • Revisions: Automatically stores a record of each edit/update of your sliders, for comparison or backup purposes. Each slider will have its own list of revisions, allowing you to easily preview a revision, analyze its settings, compare it to other revisions or restore it.


  • Slider with text thumbnails and animated layers.
  • Slider with carousel layout and captions.
  • Slider with image thumbnails.
  • Slider with mixed content.
  • Slider with right-side thumbnails.
  • The admin interface for creating and editing a slider.
  • The preview window in the admin area.
  • The layer editor in the admin area.
  • The main image editor in the admin area.
  • Adding dynamic tags for sliders generated from posts.

It’s the only slider plugin taking performance seriously. I tested them all, including Foogallery and Metaslide. In particular, lazy loading method works great. I just purchased an add-on to support the development.

The plugin is great. There are many setting options, styles and the support is top. I can recommend it to anyone.

I can say that this is definitely the best slider. Super easy to use and completely free. I honestly tried almost every slider I could find and this is definitely the best option. Not to mention that most, even in their paid version, don’t look as good as this plugin that is completely free. Thanks also to the creator of the plugin who helped me to put nofollow for the external links. I hope more people use it and donate money to the creator of the plugin because it’s definitely worth it!

I have used Slider Pro for over 10 years (it used to be a paid plugin). It does what is needed, is extremely well coded and David provides legendary support. Give it a whirl!

I’ve been using this for a couple of years now and love it to bits. I found it easy to set up, although I did need a bit of help with some extra code (which was cheerfully provided within 24 hours). Sliders have been getting some bad press recently, but for a personal website/blog, this adds something extra on the home page. I couldn’t imagine using anything else.
