Thesis 2.0 Box for the Revolution Slider

 

We’ve been pretty stoked about the new release of Thesis 2.0, as you can tell from the Thesis 2.0 First Look article I wrote at WPMU.org.

In just a few days tooling around with the new framework we were able to come up with a custom Thesis Box for the very popular WordPress slider plugin Revolution Slider.

Revolution Slider is a responsive image and video slider that packs so many features it will make your website spin – literally. We didn’t develop it – though I wish we did – it’s really neat.

Usage

It’s fairly easy to use, has a great interface, and a very interesting layered slider panel which makes for cool animation/image effects.

Of course, for the Revolution Slider Thesis Box to work you’ll need the Revolution Slider plugin, which is a premium plugin – but worth every penny of the $15 that developer is currently charging for it.

And now you’ve got a shiny new box to use the Revolution Slider anywhere you want with Thesis 2.o.

Revolution Slider box can be added anywhere in your layout editor and multiple instances of the slider box can be added too – even on individual pages.
