    Does anyone have a recommendation for a slideshow carousel that has a widget for inserting a slider into the home slider. I tried soliloquy but you have to purchase the developer lic. ($99.00) to get their carousel.

    Jetpack offers a carousel which works with the native WordPress gallery but its not the same as Soliloquy.

    You can also drag out the Carousel module from the Jetpack download and install it as a separate plugin.

    How would you do this…I’m not too good with codes.  Would I still need soliloquy or does this work alone.

    You can also drag out the Carousel module from the Jetpack download and install it as a separate plugin.

    I also downloaded the cycle 2 slider plugin hoping that would work but then found out there is some coding that has to be done for the carousel to work. Problem is I don’t know how to do the coding.  I would do it if I knew how and am afraid of trying it without guidance. Went that route before and created bigger problems. Thanks for any help.

    What about the Genesis Slider plugin?

    The Genesis Slider plugin is good if you want a slideshow. I always suggest the Genesis plugins first but i thought you asked for a Carousel?

    Do you want a slideshow or Carousel?

    You could also have a image gallery with carousel. That would look different.

    Don’t worry about the codes as you won’t need to touch them.

    I do want a carousel. Several images displayed together side by side. Looking for something simple since I am nit too familiar with coding.
