Carousel Pro

The Pro version of the WordPress Carousel plugin is an advanced version of our free plugin that comes with several useful enhancements. Beside the images, this Carousel plugin can rotate your WordPress pages and posts also.

  • slide 0
  • slide 1
  • slide 2
  • slide 3
  • slide 4
  • slide 5
  • slide 6

You can select content that will be included in the carousel by WordPress category, by tag or you can pick posts by entering their ID numbers.

This WordPress Carousel plugin has many options in the widget options page. We tried to represent plenty of them in the graphics that you can see on this page. This plugin is very flexible, so it’s possible to use it as a big rotator of your posts (usually published as a big widget on home page). Also, you can just rotate headings in a small widget. The widget options pane is enhanced with a handy color selector tool. Therefore, beside selecting color by entering their hexadecimal codes, you can also select them visually.
