Love ‘em or hate ‘em, sliders are popular and people can’t get enough of them. At least, that’s what our traffic stats tell us.
Just this month, we’ve had more than 7000 hits on one of our older slider posts. That’s a lot of slider love.
And no wonder – finding a decent slider that’s easy to set up and not too fiddly to get your head around is hard. Fortunately, there are plenty of free slider plugins around that provide a convenient way to display multiple images, video or other content on your website.
With that in mind, I’ve curated this list of some of my favorite slider plugins, including many solid options that have been around for years and have stood the test of time and are, of course, regularly updated. They’ve all been tested with the latest version WordPress (4.4) and are ranked in order of active installs, according to data from the WordPress Plugin Repository.
