    Default Faster slider than the widget

    What is a faster slider to use in xara than the one it comes with? Even though I have crunched down the size of my images,
    it takes a while to appear (assuming it is hosted with xara).

    I hear Sliders are a bad thing for SEO but they are still being used and requested.

    behzad, I think the trick is to be able to separate all the images from the Xara design file and store them within your domain.
    That way, you do not rely on Xara servers throttling download speeds or having to accommodate a widget where it does not know the size of the slider.

    Now I use WOW Slider but this costs that I modestly recoup from my customers.

    I was about to look into Sudo: http://webbies.dk/SudoSlider/help/#Designers%20guide, which does not seem to come with much baggage.

    You would load a slider with a single image (e.g. <img src="[SitePathUrl]/images/01.jpg" alt="image description"/>) and then when the DOM has fully loaded (i.e., everything done to act as a very quick rendering) then after DOM complete, a means to use the insertSlide method for the remainder of your slider content.

    If you include the ALT parameter then SEO is less likely to complain.

    @Acorn about wow slider, do you have 2 variations for mobile and desktop or every variant?

    behzad, I go to the extreme of putting the slider into a separate design file and using Embed a website widget for each Variant.
