Great Plug in

Worked first time!
I’m a newbie and it was a pleasure to install and use this plug in.
And its FREE.

Great Slider

Great Slider – even the free version.
Give this a try and know that if you need to add videos, layers or want to have other features at some point you can just buy the Pro version and don’t need to learn another slider.
There was a bug introduced in version 1.2.2 in an area where they added more features for the free version and after some back and forth with Edita this was resolved.
