The key information to your issues are there. Each website has its own conflicting plugins, so be prepared to experiment.

Documentation

More detailed than many other plugins (including paid) I've used.

100
Value for money

I've paid a lot more for plug-ins that provided a lot less value.

I used this to: If your slideshow is blank (even though you saw the loading spinner), it is most likely a script error (Squeezebox being called from Attachments in my case.) I used Disable Mootools by ExtensionBase to resolve my conflicting issues.

Using it on a mobile-only home page with Helix 3 and SP Page Builder. Works like fat man at an all-you-can-eat banquet.

Imagine great detailed documentation - well you don't have to because it 's here and as well put together as a Victoria Secrets model.

Pay a little, get a lot. What the frick else could you want?

I used this to: I use it instead of the heavy slider I have on the desktop version of the site I'm building. In fact, I'm pretty sure I'm going to dump the other one and just use this mobile and desktop. Yes, it's that good, okay? Don't confront me, bro. :-)
