RSS from Any Source with Smart SlideDecks We built the Smart SlideDeck above in 5 seconds. This dynamic slider for the WordPress plugin will change as the feed updates. You can specify the theme, navigation style, # of posts displayed and more. You can also set logic on the posts displayed based on recent, popular or featured content.

Support For Vertical Slides Allow users to dive deeper into your content by branching intro vertical slides. Think of your horizontal slides as your main SlideDeck story line with each slide considered as a chapter. Vertical slides allow you to create optional subchapters that allow users to go deeper into the subject matter of each horizontal slide. See the example below.
Skin Support Update your SlideDeck design on the fly with the new Skin Library. The current skins were designed by our “Skin It To Win It” contest winners. You can also easily create your own custom skin by modifying a .CSS file.
