Finally a slider/carousel block that doesn't try too hard and is still easy and fun to use. It just needs a few additional sidebar settings (like slide gap and maybe custom icons for the prev/next navigation) and it would be perfect. Thanks, i know i will be using this plugin A LOT in future projects - and for that it has definitely earned a full 5 star rating!

It would be great if it was possible to change slide width or justify vertically contents in slides. Thanks anyway.

I've tested all the slider/carousel plugins. This is the simplest and easiest to use. Does what it should. Only one that works with Gutenberg blocks and WP editor properly. (many of the others have awful settings pages or extra pages which were you have to go off an compose the slider) The only improvements would be for menu options to change design of buttons, dots, but this can be done with CSS code from menu panel already.
