Anyone who has had a lot of content that they want to show directly on their homepage has, at one time or another, considered or used a slider. These sliders are a good way to showcase and highlight your important content, while at the same time grabbing your viewers’ attention from the moment they open your site. They can be used to display multiple images, as well as videos and other content, depending on the purpose of your site.
There are a lot of slider plugins out there, however not all serve their purpose well. Some of them are slow, mainly due to the fact that they won’t be coded well enough, resulting in an increase in your page load time. This should be a major factor when choosing the plugin you want to use, as slow loading times can push visitors away from the get go. Others are not that easy to use for beginners, while most aren’t even responsive. The use of a responsive theme is vital nowadays, and not having a responsive plugin could undo all your hard work. Make sure you pick a plugin that would look as good on your phone as it would on a desktop.
