  • New: Additional option to scroll one item at a time (though the number of items visible in the slider are more than one).
  • New: Option to change the Slider in Preview. Now you can preview any slider before embedding to the page i.e. you can preview Slider with ID 2 or 3 or you can preview the Category Slider or Recent Posts Slider. By default the Preview section will show the Recent Posts Slider.
  • New: Option to enable the ‘SliderVilla’ custom post type, so that you can create custom slides that can be added to Roster. This is very useful when you do not want to add Post/Pages to the slider.
  • New: Fonts compatible with all major OS.
  • Fix: For each post a custom field named roster_slider_style was created which had a specific necessary value. Removed this addition of the custom meta field as there are some themes which show the custom meta fields for the post on the front-end. This field is for internal use and no need to be displayed on the front-end. So corrected this issue. (For new posts, this field will not be created, please delete this Custom Field for the old posts if your theme template shows the Custom Fields on the front-end).


  • New: You can delete the created settings set through the Roster Slider admin panel.
  • New: When you opt for ‘Randomize Slides in Slider’ , all the template tags using that set will show the slides in random order on every page load.
  • New: Display the CSS generated through the settings on the admin settings page. A new Settings tab named ‘Generated CSS’ for this purpose. You can use this CSS in your ‘custom’ stylesheets if you use other than ‘default’ value for the Stylesheet folder.
  • New: Now you can specify the ‘offset’ parameter in the template tags and shortcodes in case you need the Roster Slider to display the posts / pages from certain offset. For example, if you are using the ‘Roster Slider Recent Posts Template Tag’, by specifying the ‘offset’ parameter, you can skip the first 15 posts in Roster and then display the next 10 posts in the Slider. Please read the ‘Roster Slider Usage Guide‘ for more details on how to use the offset parameter.
  • New: Two new shortcodes viz. [ rostercategory ] and [ rosterrecent ] added. Now to display the category specific posts or most recent posts in Roster Slider, you do not need to use the template tag in posts (using exec PHP or Shortcode generator plugin). These new Shortcodes can be easily used in Post / Page content to get the necessary content in Roster Slider. Please read the ‘Roster Slider Usage Guide‘ for more details on how to use these shortcodes (shortcode parameters).
  • New: New option for a settings set to add the attributes to the ‘link’ (anchor element) to which the slide is linked to. Now you can specify the attributes like target=”_blank” or rel=”nofollow” or both to the slide link.
  • Fix: When the slide was not linked to any url, the ‘content’ and ‘title’ settings like the font color, size etc. were not applied to the elements of the slider. Fixed the issue
