UpdraftPlus acquired MetaSlider in the summer, and this is our first major release…

A few months after UpdraftPlus acquired MetaSlider, we’ve been busy coding and we’re ready to release our first big update with three new features:
  • Allow the background image to be changed – this is fixing something that should have been fixed years before we acquired it.  In the past users had to delete a slide and start again with a new background image.  But better late than never!
  • Ability for you to restore a slide after deleting – like a recycle bin, it can be very handy if you change your mind!
  • A helpful guided tour for new users
Given this last feature on the free version, there’s never been a better time to try out MetaSlider.
