** The current listing regards the PRO/commercial version of the extension
The extension is one component (with few but precious options )one module with a lot of options (this is where you will work mostly) and one plugin for the ajax calls.
It is fast and works very good.
Remember to check the menu item if you need to change the products in a row number!
I bought from breakdesigns another extension and i can say that I am a really happy customer.
I had some problems in the beginning but got great support. Problems where because I setup my template on a non standard way.
Had some great updates in the time that I use it. Have it running on two websites know.
Far from that feature, the extension is amazingly well developed and its just what VM needed. Thanks!
We required some support, mainly to get custom filter sliders to work properly. The support was perfect. We even received additional suggestions for improving an earlier given solution.
If there is anything to remark it is that it is not possible to use different custom field filters for different parts of the product portfolio. But that does not stop us from marking this plugin as Excellent.
