I wonder why I was not able to get 1 carousel working on drupal, joomla and wordpress, after 3-4 weeks of effort. I some how dont understand how frameworks like drupal, joombla and wordpress allow such crappy horrid and unprofessional plugins in their folders. They have no way to filter out the new, in development and mature plugins. Its really sad to see how these CMS’s have ignored quality, for quantity.
I mean how hard can it be to setup a “visit site” page for your plugin with some screen shots, install, configure and usage. Just get a simple getting started people.
I searched for carousel in the Add New plugin search page. All highly rated plugins were just a piece of shit. Too complex to get it working, too complex to find its documentation, would not work after trying out all their recommended steps. Some like Genesis also had a whole FAQ for coding to get it right. That sucked big time. The best of rated, were really bad.
WP Carousel worked like a charm. Just out of the box, within 5 mins it was working. Also the UI is not polished, it does the job really well.
Ok, WP Carousel also sucks. Not as bad as the others, but its ok.
The best until now is Graphene. Man, it ROCKS the party. So well done and free.
