Way too many bells and whistles, making it too hard to use for a non techie user (just a site owner) - slowed down site, not great support, so not really using.
thanks for your feedback (though you rated the plugin as if it was broken ;) ).
The slider does not slow down the page only because it is on it. Most common error is to use too big images or a conflict with an other plugin/theme that does not play by WP standards. Our support experts could check this for you!
Slider Revolution is indeed a pro tool with a small learning curve for absolute non-techies. If you only need basic functionality (without any bells and whistles) this learning curve is very, very small though. We have multiple videos in our tutorial list that could help you like this example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yq3j8jL2JM&list=PLSCdqDWVMJPPDcH_57CNZvLckoB8cimJF&index=15
Hope the video tuts and our support team can help you with your issues!
In general, slider revolution has a good front end effect. Customer support takes 24 hours to respond but due to global availability, this generally is longer than other premium plugin support. Having that said, they do give a very detailed reply and will give a helping hand with the issue.
I think the features of slider revolution is very intensive and you must be very familiar with the tool in order to debug everything.
A intensive troubleshooting document will probably help a lot. Video guides would be excellent too.
the slider is really good, but as a non-technical and nonprogrammer I find it really difficult to make it work with the correct responsiveness. I have no idea how to modify certain stripes that come out on the slider when opening the site from an iphone or from a tablet, plus is very difficult to make the photos actually fit as I would like it when I am modifying the slider and I can´t really see how it will look like, I mean, that when I am making the slider from scratch, the screen wont show as it will on the real site.
thanks for your feedback!
We have a whole YouTube playlist dedicated to Responsive Design with Slider Revolution that hopefully can help you understand the concept:
