Hot Newsflash

Do you need some posts or pages of your WordPress based website to stand out from the others? Our fully configurable, featured articles rotator, based on jQuery can help you to achieve that. In the widget options, you have control over the widget’s output. You can change widget’s width, height, border, all colors… You can add internal or external link to each image from the rotating set. So, you can link any part of your site (such as wooCommerce category), not just WordPress posts.
