I didn’t mean to ‘trash’ the product. If you look at http://soliloquywp.com/features/ you see that you get a lot for the money and for our biz it was worth the $99. But it is NOT worth $99 EVERY YEAR. Adobe can get away with the rental model as can Apple because there are not substitutes for Indesign or OS X if you are making your living as a graphic designer. But if you make your living as a web monkey you have tons and tons of (free/low-cost) substitutes for almost everything you do or use.
I might (but not really sure) have paid Soliloquy maybe $10-$20 a year for updates… but not $99. To me that is just a money-grab. The product has many fine features but at the end of the day, I just need a slider and to save $99 I can easily get by with the Gen Responsive Slider plugin.
Anyway, for me, Soliloquy is ‘broken’ in that it is not working well with Adapt and Gen 2.0. and Bluehost. I don’t know where the fault lies… but the Gen Slider works fine… so I have to say it is somewhere in the Soliloquy code. I put in a support tix this morning so we’ll see what the outcome is. If it isn’t fixed in a few days I’ll move to the Gen Slider when the client site goes live.
