New Smart SlideDeck Live Demo10 Comments
One of the best kept secrets of the WordPress Plugin is the Smart SlideDeck feature. This feature allows you to create a dynamic and fully automated SlideDeck in about 5 seconds. Since we weren’t properly showing off this powerful functionality, we decided to build a badass demo for you guys to test drive.
Features of the demo:
- See a live SlideDeck in action with some of our favorite blogs
- Change the skin color between light and dark
- Update navigation styles
- Enter and display in any RSS feed content*
That’s right – any RSS feed content. So why stop at blog content, bring in Twitter, Facebook or foursquare feeds – be creative!

Remember, the demo shows you Smart SlideDeck example as if you configured them from within the WordPress Slider Plugin. The functionality of allowing users to specify a custom RSS or change display settings on the fly is not currently included in the WordPress plugin. However, we would consider adding it into the product if you guys give us a good enough reason to do so. For instance, you could give users a blank canvas of SlideDecks and allow them to customize their own news feeds. So let us know how you would use this functionality.
*Note: We are still working on perfecting the display of feed images. It works most of the time, however, we haven’t been able to filter out all the funky ad formats and tracking images.
