Very impressed with this little slider block, if you're using the Block editor this will make a good addition to your site. Nice, complete and modern controls. If you only need to slide one thing at a time (think mastheads or hero images) then the free version works really great. If you want to slide more than one thing then you might want to consider PRO. Don't listen to the one-star reviews - give it a try.

This used to be a great little slider - it did everything that I wanted it, cleanly and simply, with the huge bonus of editing the sliders in the page. Now, with the update to version 2, it's lost that major bonus. It didn't automatically recognise my original sliders, as they promised, so I had to recreate them and then I find that there's no block to insert them back into the page and the shortcode didn't work. All in all a very disappointing mess that just proves the adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!".

If you're looking for an easy to use slider, that works with Gutenberg (!!!), look no further than Block Slider. For real, this is one of the most uniquely implemented sliders I have come across. It is super easy to work with, its options are well organised and the performance penalty is non existent. Compared to other offerings, this is clearly a superior solution. Keep up the good work! 💪

This plugin installs a blank admin panel with the title "Content Here" and the content "Curabitur aliquet quam id dui posuere blandit. Mauris blandit aliquet elit, eget tincidunt nibh pulvinar a. Pellentesque in ipsum id orci porta dapibus. Vestibulum ac diam sit amet quam vehicula elementum sed sit amet dui. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Donec velit neque, auctor sit amet aliquam vel, ullamcorper sit amet ligula."

I wanted a lean sliding solution for gutenberg and this plugin is exactly what i've searched for. Installed the premium trial version from the website and will buy it as soon as it is open for sale.

Not quite sure HOW this plugin was added to my site, because I never actually installed it via the Plugin portal. Yet I was intrigued because I am looking to eliminate Elementor and will need a slider for my site. I could barely get the block to work! Just about everything you want to tweak, the things that the plugin info page touts requires you to buy the PRO version. But the upgrade page within WP doesn't actually load... and when you finally get to the plugin's homepage - turns out that the PRO version isn't even available yet?! (not to mention that there are still the "ipsum" and pointless paragraphs on their page). It's nowhere near ready for release.
