Slider Pro - Responsive WordPress Slider Plugin

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, striving to provide a clean and intuitive user interface in the admin area and a smooth navigation experience for the end-users.

Slider Pro avoids unnecessary fanciness, that many times is an obstacle for end-users in getting the information they need, and instead focuses on simplicity and performance, while still providing a wide range of customization possibilities.

Front-end features:

  • Fully Responsive – Slider Pro will look and work great on any screen size.
  • Touch-swipe – The slider offers a native-like navigation experience on touch-screen devices.
  • Smooth Animations – All animations use smooth CSS3 transitions (with fallback to JavaScript animations).
  • Animated Layers – Layers can contain any HMTL content, from simple text to videos.
  • Elegant Effects – The slider provides the two most popular transition effects for sliders: fade and slide.
  • Carousel Layout – It’s possible to show multiple slides at the same time, like in a carousel layout.
  • Infinite Scrolling – The slider provides the option to scroll through slides continuously, in an infinite loop.
  • Full Width and Full Window – You can set the slider to automatically expand itself to the full width or full size of the browser window.
  • Breakpoints – You can change configuration of the slider depending on screen size.
  • Differently Sized Images – You can load both portrait and landscape images in the same slider.
  • SEO-Friendly – All the content inside the slider will be visible to search engines.
  • Auto Height – Optionally, the slider height can expend depending on the height of the current slide.
  • Customizable Orientation – The slider and the thumbnails can be oriented both horizontally and vertically.
  • Lazy Loading – It’s possible to load the images only when they become visible, thus increasing the loading speed and saving bandwidth.
  • Conditional Images – It’s possible to load separate images for different slider sizes, so that when the slider is loaded on a mobile device, a smaller version of the image gets loaded.
  • Retina-enabled – The slider allows you to specify a retina version for each image.
  • Thumbnails – Thumbnails can contain images, text and any other HTML content. Also, they can be position to the left, right, top or bottom of the slider.
  • Keyboard Navigation – It’s possible to navigate through slides using the keyboard.
  • Deep Linking – You can link directly to a specific slide in the slider.
  • Full-screen – Slider Pro can enter the full-screen mode in browsers that support the HMTL5 Full Screen API.
  • Lightbox – The slider comes bundled with the FancyBox lightbox and allows you to easily activate it for the main slide images.

Back-end features:

  • Dynamic Content – You can easily load content (featured image, title, excerpt, post content, and more) from posts. You can also create sliders from gallery images or load images from Flickr.
  • Automatic Updates – You can update Slider Pro directly from the Dashboard.
  • Caching – The plugin automatically caches all your sliders to ensure a fast loading time.
  • Best Practices – WordPress development best practices were implemented in order to ensure a conflict-less integration with other themes and plugins.
  • MultiSite – You can use the plugin in a MultiSite environment.
  • Import and Export – Easily export and import sliders between Slider Pro installations.
  • Action and Filter Hooks – If you’re a developer you will find these very handy for customizing the slider.
  • Powerful JavaScript API – You can control the slider programmatically.
