Finding the best-featured slider WordPress plugins is the focus of this blog post. There are many plugins available to you. Basically, a featured slider allows you to display images in a variety of ways which can be a slider of images, display affiliate images, or even share your online portfolio. After testing featured slider WordPress plugins, I decided to use Meta Slider on my websites. This one was chosen because of the ease of use, able to create sliders quickly and because I can apply SEO or links to the images.
