The Nivo Slider makes displaying your gallery of images a beautiful experience, by using amazing transition effects ranging from slicing and sliding to fading and folding. There simply is no better way to showcase your amazing work than to make the presentation of it looks just as beautiful.
Powerful & Simple Slider Creation
The Nivo Slider WordPress plugin makes it super easy to create and manage multiple sliders on your WordPress sites. Using the WordPress backend you can create as many sliders as you need and include them in your posts and pages using a simple shortcode. You don’t need to touch any code!
Multiple Slider Types
The Nivo Slider WordPress plugin allows you to choose between creating Manual sliders, where you manually upload and order images, Category & Sticky sliders, where post thumbnails from a certain category or “sticky” posts are used as the slider images, and Gallery sliders, where gallery images from a specified post are used as the slider images.
Automatic Image Cropping
The Nivo Slider WordPress plugin can automatically crop and resize your images to a size you specify, so you don’t have to worry about doing it manually yourself. So you don’t need to worry if your images are too big or too small, they will all come out the same size in the slider.
The Nivo Slider WordPress plugin comes with a built in theme chooser which allows you to use some of the awesome pre-built themes with your slider automatically. This means your slider can look stunning without any extra work. Or if you prefer, don’t use a pre-built theme and create your own using CSS.
Small, Semantic & Responsive
The Nivo Slider is also designed to have as small an impact as possible on your page load times, so the packed version only weighs 15kb. We also created the slider using the latest standards and made sure that everything is semantic and as compatible as possible. Oh yes and it’s completely responsive.
Free to Use & Abuse
The Nivo Slider jQuery plugin is open source and released under the MIT license. This means you can use it almost anywhere and for almost any kind of project, including personal and commercial websites and themes you make. It also means you can give back to the community by contributing your own improvements to the slider via GitHub.
Media Manager Plus Integration
Sometimes you don’t want to upload images manually, you would rather pull them from your favorite image service. Nivo Slider integrates with our free Media Manager Plus WordPress plugin so you can automatically pull your latest mug shots from Instagram, get images from Flickr tagged “beach”, see your friends latest 500px shots, etc. You get the idea.
