WordPress Speed Up Service | WordPress Website Maintenance Packages There are a ton of slider plugins for WordPress. One of my favorites (which I currently use for one site) is Cyclone Slider. However, in order to add a picture, you should upload it first. I want a slider plugin that allows you to just hotlink an image and then display it in the slider. That would be much easier and would take up less space on my website. I've seen a slider plugin that does this but it's not free. Do you know of any that's free?
