WooSlider

How can we improve WooSlider?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add sortable "menu_order" column to the All Slides page

    Now that WooSlider supports sorting by menu_order, it would be nice to have that as a viewable, sortable column on the All Slides page. As it stands, when I want to insert a new slide between two existing slides, I need to open the existing slides first and note the menu order number assigned.

    • Video is 100 times more informative than images with text.

      WooSlider has no options for selecting a video player, its' skins, resolution or size, etc..

      WooSlider needs many more options for presenting video in an attractive fashion.

      • no caption or image name showing on the actual image maybe under the image frame not in it

        be able to removwe the image name from the slide show now you get a caption right on the picture it takes away from the image. At least on the free version

        • Specify specific attachments per attachements slider

          When inserting an "attachments" slider, it would be could if you could choose which attachments showed. For example, if I have 8 attachments on a page and want 4 to show at the top, then some text, then 4 at the bottom I could define them.

          Better yet- When inserting an attachments/images slider, I could pick the specific ones straight from the existing media library.

          • Amount of items in a carousel

            It would be great to have control over the minimum and maximum amount of items in the backend settings, by shortcode or template tags, to create more individual carousels. Actually there are only three items shown in a carousel and stretched automatically to fill the slide's with.

              • Give us the oportunity to use some themes for free, not only demos.

                Give us the oportunity to use some themes for free, not only demos. Some people can't pay even the cheaper price... Like me. Thanks!

                • Batch import of pictures

                  I need to get in 50 pics as a slide. So an import function should be very interesting. Press import button, choose 50 pics. Every pics will be imported to 50 slides in a choosen slide group.

                  • Additional paging options

                    In addition to dots and thumbnails for paging, how about some options.

                    I'm implementing a design that showcases key products in the slider and would benefit from having the product names as clickable paging, perhaps using a custom field of the slide, or even the alt tag of the image.

                    • WooSlider Vertical Thumbnail Nav

                      Adding vertical thumbnail navigation to WooSlider would add a new dimension to layout possibilities. Located to the left or right of the slides, show title on hover. See screenshot at: http://bit.ly/133wpW5

                      Although a plugin can do this with some hacks (above screen is Canvas), eliminate third-party conflicts by including it in WooSlider! This would save time in trying to fix conflicts, minimise multiple scripts running, and helps differentiate WooSlider to theme built-in sliders.

                      • Integrate Flickr images into WooSlider slide shows

                        Better integrate Flickr images and/or sets into WooSlider slide shows within the post or page without having to create individual slides for every slide group.

                        Please and thank you.

                            It would be great to have a feature to duplicate slides, that way I can build one template and duplicate it several times, and then I can go and edit what I need to

                              • Customization options to change the look and better online documentation for non-professional web developers

                                I purchased four different sliders this week to test them all out. Other sliders like RivaSlider etc all have nice easy customization for changing the overall look of the slider. Things like changing or removing the padding, the border or drop-shadow etc etc.

                                Overall I've been less than impressed. It's the most expensive option that I purchased and in fact has the least options and by far the worse online documentation. Already I've had to contact support with tickets, and use Bountify to get someone else to help me with it. I needed none of those with the other options…

                                • I would love to have testimonials running on my front page

                                  On the front page of my webpage I would like slides with testimonials. Actually I would prefer just to be able to add several texts and not confine the testimonials to users of my webpage. Often I use positive feedback from emails that I get from people I have been teaching in person who is not user on my webpage. So if there was a possibility to add this and show it on the slider.
                                  The 'Post' type of the WooSlider does not work here as I would like the testimonials to NOT be visible anywhere else on my page…

                                  • Enable multiple categories to be used in an AND configuration

                                    Right now if you select two categories, it will pull from both.

                                    It would be nice to have this as an "AND" option -- perhaps

                                    Cat 1, Cat 2 == get posts from EITHER / BOTH categories but

                                    Cat 1 & Cat == only posts in BOTH categories.

                                    USE:

                                    Cat 1 = Featured

                                    Cat 2 == Foo

                                    Page shows a bunch of posts from cat == Foo

                                    Slider just shows the Foo posts that are Featured.

                                    Page 2 has Cat 3 == Bar -- shows posts in Cat == Bar
