FREE TRIAL: http://www.nextendweb.com/wiki/smart-slider-2-free-trial/
Smart Slider 2 trial is NOT made to use on live site, it is tech demo, which allows you to try most (but not all) of the features of Smart Slider 2.
Smart Slider 2 comes with a reliable, flexible and intuitive interface for backend, which makes easy for anyone to design beautiful sliders in minutes. Grab a new layer, move it on the canvas, finally drag&drop some items with your mouse and your slide is ready. You can choose from a range of items (text, image, video, iframe, flip, caption, fade, tag, HTML etc.), and customize them without HTML or CSS knowledge. Change color, font, background, link, position, size, etc...

We still have a month or so to release our website to the public and the more we dive into this component the more we realize the amount of development this has gone through! Sleek, Professional and Robust!
The developers of the extension are always there for you, to help and answer any questions you might have. They also helped us with some other issues we had not directly related to their component and we are truly grateful to them! 5 star plus support is what you get with this extension.
Thank you very much for all your help and patience!
We will definitely co-operate with you again in the future.
You can truly build a slider as you imagine it.
And then there is the customization on the slides. I'm talking about creating layers upon layers if you want and filling them with buttons headings images etc. The layers are all movable, resizable have a z-index value, you can write custom css on them and also select in which devices they are shown or hidden (desktop tablet mobile).
But for me the biggest plus is the level of support.
The minute I found out about this component and saw the demo, I bought it for a website I'm designing.
It turned out that something that I wanted to do was not supported from the slider (which is truly unlucky as this component can do almost everything)
Keep in mind that I bought the cheapest subscription (starter) which does not include personal support.
So I've send an email to their support asking if what I wanted to do was achievable. I got a response back after about 30 minutes and we did some back and forth so I could better explain what I wanted exactly.
Next day I receive a mail with a modified version of the component tailored to my needs! I was simply speechless!
Next time I'm building a side I'm going to get a Lifetime subscription.
I recommend this component to everyone that wants sliders
Very beautiful and has great design.
And also my suggest, when u'r planning to buy or use some extentions, the important one is the support team. THE TEAM of NEXTEND is so great, fast, and also friendly.
Thank you Nextend for the slider.
Their support was so efficient I did not have to wait for responses and fixes. Extremely professional. I would recommend this to anyone looking to purchase a slider for their website.
Ten out of ten!
