Why do “Experts” not recommend the use of Sliders for WordPress Projects

The first thing they claim is the performance hit, yet there are around 3 sliders that I know off that have minimal impact on website speed.

The next point is they claim, that, sliders confuse people and that they lead to bad design and it is so 1990”s

I am about to leverage them heavily on one of my main projects and I just don’t want to be in a position where the site takes a hit because I am not aware of some WordPress best practices.

Any thoughts ?

  1. I’m not an expert, but there are some situations where sliders ate much more efficient and elegant than having many images on the same page.

    That said, I’ve also seen gratuitous use of sliders, and distracting, resource-hogging effects.
