Is this outdated by chance or is the random feature only available for upgraded users? I have the free version installed and do not have a “random” selection to enable in the config section. Thanks in advance, LOVE the plugin!
Your correct, you would need to upgrade for that feature. By upgrading you’d also get a bunch of other helpful features too! Let us know if you have any questions.
Do ALL the paid versions randomize? I’m using ONE slider on ONE website, and that’s all I need. Does the most basic ($19) version have the randomize?
This posts is the worst and most unfair add i’ve ever seen on a plugin
