Derrick – Home – Rotator (aka Image Slider)

Note: This uses a premium plugin called Soliloquy. A license for this is already included in your theme at purchase. You do not need to purchase a license unless you want direct support from the plugin developer. Thomas, the developer, is really good with support so we encourage buyers who have advanced needs to consider purchasing a their own license so they can receive direct support. If you do not have advanced needs which would require support, you are good to go with our included license.
