Would the Dessky Responsive Slider work in my theme?

The plugin has been tested with more than 40 popular WordPress themes. It should work in yours too.

Does my theme need to be ‘responsive’ in order to use this plugin?

No, not at all. You can use it with any theme.

Can I change the way it looks?

You can easily override the slider CSS in your theme. The fastest approach is to use a tool like Firebug to find the snippet you need to override. Then copy it to your theme CSS file (usually ‘style.css’) and edit it there, using a CSS selector with higher priority.

Can I create more than one slider?

No, currently the plugin can create only one slider.
