    I want to have a banner ad 300x250 slide into all of my pages after a visitor has been there for 15-20 seconds.

    Can someone recommend a plugin for this.
    I use the theme Nominal and it does not come with any sliders.

    I tried a pop up plugin and it looked garish and would not allow me to have a clickable link in the banner.

    Not clear. Do you want to have a slider (like rotator) or just kind of sliding panel? If sliding panel, search "sliding panel plugin wordpress" in google

    Hi @schleprock.
    I have checked some plugins and you can check the Slider wordpress plugin.
    It contains,
    Responsiveness.
    Possibility of adding unlimited sliders and unlimited slides for each slider.
    Full width slider support.
    5 transition effects for sliders.
    Autoplay.
    Shortcode for easy insert of the slider into post/ pages.
    Possibility of changing the slider orders.
    Possibility to provoide titles for the slide.

    You can also try the premium plugins such as
    Smart slider
    Sangar slider
    Slider plugin

    My suggestion is you can go with the slider wordpress plugin. It's good with its features and youcan get it for free.

    Most of the free sliders I've used just suck. Try LayerSlider or Revolution Slider. Either of them should do the trick.

    I'm not 100%, but perhaps Meta Slider will work for you. It's supposed to be the most popular WordPress slider plugin. I haven't personally tried it yet, but will be testing it on a few of my sites soon as well. https://wordpress.org/plugins/ml-slider/

    I use Avada, you can get it on torrents but i recommend buying it. It has everything you need, and is simple to use.
