What makes a site appealing comes down to a variety of components. When these components are thrown together in just the right way, something special can really happen (and of course by “thrown together” I mean fine tune and nit pick with every last detail).
One of the crucial elements to include on a customized CMS site would be an image slider. These are specific galleries of images that developers place on the home page of a site in order to advertise the very site you are visiting. In order to keep visitors on these sites, designers choose the best quality images along with eye-catching titles and descriptions.
The CMS that I am using in my group project is the almighty WordPress.org Here we have dozens of different types of image sliders to choose from. Our group has decided to develop a shopping site that sells high end shoes and footwear, therefore the appropriate thing to include in our slider would be something with a professional kick.
Looking through all of the different types of sliders together, we decided on using the HUGE-IT slider. It is one of the highest rated image sliders based on the consensus from WordPress.org and from the testing that we went through, it sure looks beautiful.
The HUGE-IT comes with unlimited amount of image space, a drag and drop functionality for easy to update customer service, and automated short-code for the easier process of adding the slider to a webpage.
