Why doesn't Homestead make it EASY to add an image slider to a website?

Note: This topic was created from a reply on the WOW Slider slideshows in an Intuit website topic.

Thank you for adding this topic to the Ideas section. Many websites (including www.homestead.com) have images sliding or fading to the next image. SiteBuilder should make it easy to add those effects, without having to add html coding. If not, I think Homestead should remove that image effect (and any font or feature not available on SiteBuilder) from its own website because it appears to misrepresent the functionality of SiteBuilder.

Yes, I'm pretty sure that you can get rid of watermark, but that's illegal.
On their webpage (on download site) says that WOW Slider is free for non-commercial use. So you need commercial license.
It seems fair to me.

Has anyone used wow slider with Sitebuilder plus yet. I'm finding it impossible to add the folders to the root file manager.

Hi Billy Fishback,

I might understand now. Are you trying to drag a folder to the file manager? If so, use the file manager to create the folder, then select all the files from your computer in that folder and drag them to the folder. If that isn't the problem, what are the folder names?

Ive tried this also and when it is complete it shows only text with the bullet points someone also mentioned..WOW slider only works when I revert back to desktop to build this type of design. So unless you try this yourself I have been using ComSlider but it is by far inferior.

I have used wowslider with Plus before, but not in sometime. When I get a chance I will do so again and see if there is a change. I'm sorry but it might not be until later in the week.

Thanks George7467, in my opinion image sliders are the one of the greatest enhancements to any site under today's minimalist design standard. I'll be sure to follow because I'd like to see where this conversation is headed. ~ Regards

Hi to all,

I'm using comSlider: www.comslider.com online slideshow maker.
Very easy to create fully customizable slider with numerous transition effects...

Simple integration into homestead page:

Insert -> more -> HTML and insert comSlider HTML snippet code
