Content Grid Slider uses custom post type for slides.
This plugin allows you to add a carousel type grid slider with posts containing text and a custom link to redirect on a custom page by using custom posts.
You can make different groups of posts depending upon your requirements.
You can add custom page URL’s to your posts where you want to redirect users. You can use this on pages(recommended), widgets and even in your template files via shortcode.
You have full control over their grouping and their sort order.
A new feature of preview in color settings page has also been added.
You can also see the live preview of slider while changing colors without actually saving it.
