This is a greatly needed plugin and I’m happy to see it uses Owl Slider. The ONLY thing that would make this a “5 out of 5” for me is a just a *few* more options. I’d love to be able to chang e the colour of the title and have the ability to hide the title all together since I have the title in my featured images. Great Job! Mel
