Go Slider


With use of Media Categories creating Slide Shows has never been easier!

Go Slider utilizes different approach to media management – it enables categories in media for images. Sliders are created automatically out of Image Categories.

There’s no need to “add” images to the Slider using drag&drop methods or something similar, you can simple skip this step entirely.

Simply specify categories for the images you want to slide and use shortcode to create a slider for specified image category.

That’s it! this process takes just minutes!

There’s many advantages for this method, one for example is that you never need to modify your slider, you can add images to it or substract images out of it simple by managing Media Categories and Go Slider will pick it up automatically.

Go Slider is optimized for speed. Configuration is fast and simple, everything can be done in ShortCode Generator dialog or just by putting Slider shortcode(s) to the page.

Go Slider is 100% compatible with Go Gallery and Image Categories created by Go Gallery. Both plugins can be used together.
