Where can I find Master Slider documentation and user guides

If you have any question about working with “Master Slider”, you can take a look at online documentations

When I preview the slider in admin page everything looks fine, but when I add it to my website the slider looks different. How can I fix that?

It is a known issue with few poor coded themes that can be easily fixed. In fact, some styles in your theme conflicts with the styles in Master Slider. You can simply submit a ticket in support section, our support agents will advice you how to fix the conflicts.

Will Master Slider work with my theme?

Master Slider works with any theme, including the default WordPress themes.

Can you recommend a free theme that is optimized for Master Slider

Fortunately there are plenty of options out there, including the default WordPress themes too. But the one that we recommend most is Phlox theme which is a free, versatile and optimized theme for Master Slider.

I added text to slide (slide info), but it does not appear in slider

You need to add “slide info” control too. To do that, go for editing slider, under “slider controls” tab, select and add “slide info” control

After I’ve removed a slider, it still appears on my website

Maybe you have a cache plugin enabled on your website or Master Slider’s built-in cache is enabled.

Where can I report bugs?

Bugs can be reported in our support forums.


This one does pretty much everything I needed, after trying a bunch of other sliders. Great plugin.
Setiap orang pasti ingin sukses dan bahagia. Namun kesuksesan dan kebahagiaan itu tidak datang dengan sendirinya. Tentu harus ada upaya dan kerja keras untuk meraihnya. Oleh karena itu, kesuksesan dan kebahagiaan itu harus diciptakan dengan kerja keras dan kejujuran. Saya bukanlah orang kaya, tapi saya juga ingin hidup lebih baik lagi. Bersama Wordpress dan Master, saya ingin belajar dan bermitra untuk mewujudkan semuanya untuk anak-anak saya. Terima kasih banyak atas perhatian dan kesabarannya dalam membimbing, Thank You So Much
Master Slider is a top plugin. Great work!!
sustainable, works out of the box, versatile
