I bought a lifetime developer’s license on the last day of the “limited-period” offer for only $100 and this is one of the best investments that I have made for a plugin.
This responsive slider plugin is built by Thomas Griffin. I have been following him on Twitter for over a year now and that’s where I came to know about his wonderful work with Soliloquy.
To be true, I have never looked at any other slider plugin after finding this one. And here are some reasons why I use it for all my personal and client sites:
1. User Friendly:
It’s extremely user friendly. You simply need to follow the standard WP approach of uploading files as you do in a post. Thumbnails make it easy to put the slides in desired order. And not to mention you can embed it with a simple short code in any post or page.
Built on top of FlexSlider, nothing could be better than Soliloquy for adding a responsive slider to your site. It works perfectly even with touch screen devices.
3. Fast and SEO Friendly
Soliloquy understands what files it needs to use and when. It won’t add bunch of extra HTTP requests to your site or create a bad impact on the loading time. Essential files are loaded only when a slider exists on a page or post. When you don’t use it, it will sit quietly in a corner, as if it never existed on your site. You get all, sweet SEO love while using this plugin. You can add alt and title tags to slider images.
Soliloquy doesn’t flood you with hundreds of configuration options. With it’s addons you can pick up exactly what you want. At present, there are Basic and Premium addons. Basic addons come pre-packaged with Developer version of Soliloquy. Whereas Premium Addons are built and sold separately. Premium addon acts more like a bridge between a third party plugin and Soliloquy.
Get Dynamic Premium Addon for Soliloquy let’s you build sliders from NextGen and WordPress Galleries.
Soliloquy offers three versions : Personal($19) and Developer($99) and Life Time Access ($299) for a one-time fee and a 30-day money back guarantee. There are no recurring charges. Instead, it follows a new approach of “Support Tokens”. A complimentary support token is offered with every purchase and you can use it once for creating a support ticket. If you need more, you can purchase additional support token from your membership area.
