Free trial now available: Test-drive SlideDeck 2 Lite on your site8 Comments
We have another huge announcement for you guys – we’ve released a free trial of SlideDeck 2 to the WordPress Plugin Repository! Now you can download and try SlideDeck 2 Lite right from the comfort of your own WordPress installation for free – as in gratis, zip, nada, and lots of other cute words that mean $0.00.
So what’s in SlideDeck 2 Lite? Well, for this release, we focused on keeping it a lightweight, yet still powerful slider plugin. Let’s dive into the features, shall we?
With SlideDeck 2 Lite, you get 5 awesome Content Sources included:
Create amazing dynamic photo galleries using images from any public Flickr account, as well as filtering by Tags and Favorites to drill down to the exact images you want to showcase.
Your videos will love SlideDeck. Seriously, how many other video gallery plugins let you build a sweet video slider using search terms or pull content from your YouTube Channel playlists, change the appearance with a single click, and enable auto-pause/resume in-between video slides? Now, how many of those let you do it in less than a minute? Yeah, we could only think of one name, too…
Our newest Content Source is also one of our most hotly anticipated. Tap into the bottomless well of imagery on the fastest growing social network on the Web right now. Showcase all your pins as they happen, or simply share a pinboard that catches your discerning eye.
There are featured content sliders, and then there are Featured Content Sliders. The WordPress Posts Content Source in SlideDeck 2 gives you incredible flexibility in cherry-picking your best posts and visually showcasing them to your visitors. Choose whether to show Posts or Recent Pages, then filter by Categories, Tags and more – all with just a few clicks.
You’ve never seen Tweets like this. SlideDeck intelligently pulls in Tweets from any username, search term or hashtag, and can even show images associated with them in the slide.
As if all these sources weren’t enough, you can create as many SlideDecks as you like, on as many sites as you like. (Seriously, go nuts!)
Also, remember that you can mashup all these Content Sources together in a single SlideDeck, to give your visitors a truly mixed-media experience. I humbly submit that there’s literally never been a better time to try SlideDeck. Download it today!
What’s the difference between Lite and SlideDeck Personal/Professional/Developer?
SlideDeck 2 Lite is a pretty powerful slider plugin for WordPress, but there are a bunch of great reasons you might want to upgrade to one of our paid packages:
All Content Sources
All paid versions of SlideDeck 2 support over a dozen Content Sources, so you can upgrade to get seamless access to your Instagram photos, Vimeo videos, RSS feeds and more.
Make SlideDeck truly your own on your site. All paid versions of SlideDeck appear seamless to your website visitors, with no branding.
Upgrading to SlideDeck 2 Personal or above will let you create sliders with more than 5 slides – perfect for when you have content galore to share.
A Full Set of Lenses
While the Toolkit and O-Town Lenses are powerful, flexible Lenses that can work on a wide range of different sites, you’ll want to upgrade for access to our full suite of Lenses, including Fashion, Block Title and others.
Awesome Customer Support
Personal, Professional and Developer customers get direct email support from the same developers who lovingly built SlideDeck from the ground up.
SlideDeck Personal, Professional and Developer customers have access to gorgeous Covers that allow you to introduce your SlideDeck, and finish with a strong call-to-action.
