The free version has absolutely ZERO of the features shown on the plugin's description in WP depository. You cannot use it directly in block editor, you cannot use media as a background, you cannot control the height of the slider - NOTHING! You can do two things (but NOT directly in Gutenberg editor) Create a slider with a solid color background Create a slider with photos, but you cannot put any blocks on top, so all you get is a photo gallery. Even then, you can't control the height or other essential elements. They should not be allowed to show these features or the screenshots on their WP plugin page. It's a total lie.

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.
