After 2 years of building and supporting SlideDeck, we’ve learned a surprising amount about content sliders. Until recently, probably the biggest insights we’ve had are:
- Sliders are still difficult to create and maintain without in-depth coding expertise.
- The vast majority of the slider plugins out there only accommodate images, despite the wealth of different types of content people are creating on the web today.
Following our conviction that good design should be made available to everyone, we set out to create a WordPress slider plugin that anyone with content could use. We wanted to simplify the process of creating a content slider, and to eliminate the need to laboriously format each slide individually.
