12 Awesome WordPress SlideShow Plugins

Everyone love to see image on any website and if it is a slideshow people like to see it much. Furthermore, perfect use of slide show gives gorgeousness to a site. And why the WordPerss users will stay away from the use of slide show.

I got some magnificent looking WordPress plugins for slideshow which I showcase in here. Hope the WordPerss users will love to use these.

2. WordPress Plugin: iSlidex

iSlidex is a WordPress Plugin that will showcase, in an elegant and minimal way (the Apple way), images taken from posts in a specific category. It is indeed a slideshow plugin, completely automated once you set the number of slides you would like to feature, the size and the category from where iSlidex will pull the images. iSlidex comes also with a widget, which can be set independently from the main slider, from the same settings page, however recommend the use of the plugin only inside big sidebars, in order to be displayed in the best way.

For integration inside wordpress, Xili-floom-slideshow can be awesome! It tries to install it automatically but also allows personalization. Xili-floom-slideshow inserts the javascript and CSS file inside the header of the theme. The images attached (but not inserted) to a post (or a page) are listed for the slideshow. And after adding a [xilifloom] shortcode inside the content of the post, the slideshow of the images of the gallery are automatically displayed.

  1. Thanks for the post!

    I’m trying to find two specific sliders.

    1. A footer slider like on the demo version of the content slideshow site on your list to showcase blog logos (just like on their site).

    2 A news slider that showcases a horizontal row of thumbnails/post titles to highlight blog posts.

    Any ideas?

  2. Hello friends..
    Am looking for a little help from you, i have to implement a slide show which will show more than one post/page (image) at a time. i.e. the layout is such that the place alloted to the slide show can accommodate 3 images side to side, and i would like each image to be pulled from a different post/page.
    How can i do this? is there any plugin that goes with the requirement.
    Thanks in advance

  4. hi, I want to add slideshow affiliate links/images/deals into sidebar with navigation so visitors can scroll it. please let me know which plugin works best for it?

  5. Nice list.. Slidedeck looks nice.. they have a free version but you can’t easily remove credit link or logo from bottom… the Pro version looks awesome… just out of my range really… but the features are sure sweet though….

  6. Can you suggest a wordpress slideshow where I can have the image next to text. I have a sports blog and something like that would be great. An added benefit would be if the user could control when the slide changes. Thanks
