If you use SlideshowFx plugin, please post a rating and a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.


Functionality

After some pre-sales discussion the developer was able add extra functionality that allowed me to use the plugin with my Kunena forum.

Ease of use

The plugin is pretty simple to use even though the manual looks quite complicated

Support

Great support from the developer, brought new functionality to my Kunena forum like GPS maps and slideshows.

Value for money

Very good, would be nice if the subscription covered multi-sites

I used this to: Kunena forum

Fantastic product!

This extension was exactly what I needed an more. I needed an extension that could integrate my clients many Flickr albums within their Joomla website. The SlideshowFx extension was able to do this and much more besides. The comprehensive configuration panel very useful and user-friendly. The fact that it will enable me to integrate Facebook, Google and other Albums too makes it very good value for money. I was also particularly impressed with the support I received. Thanks again Joel.

Excellent support for SlideshowFX and a great module for Google, Flickr, Facebook and Instagram


I agree with other reviewers: SlideshowFX is a fab extension that works well, represents excellent value for money and is very versatile, furthermore Joel's support is second to none. Highly recommended!


Hi,

I purchased the plugin to display Picasa gallery on my site, configured in 5 minutes, I had a query regards the mobile view, support came back to me with the solution in an hour, couldn't recommend it more!

I have just upgraded to the latest SlideshowFX and ... again - fantastic and quick support to help me deal with the change from Picasa to Google+ account. Many album slideshows in articles on my website and working a treat now!! Thank you Joel at Oopstouch - recommend this as the best of its kind.

Works out of the box

I use SlideshowFX for several years now and its the ONE add-on to manage private albums on google+ (or former picasa). Help is fast. I always got 24hr responses, even when the developer was on holiday.


I have tried quite a few (payed and free) Slideshow extensions that get the photo material from Google Plus albums. I cannot say I have tried them all, but this one is the best I came across. For a lot of reasons, one is the ease of installation (within minutes) up and running). A second reason is the wealth of configuration options, although I have to say the default options are very well chosen. So after trying quite a few, I found myself back to the default again.

Last but not least, I did not have one single problem installing and configuring it. Still I ran into a big issue with a complete blank website, caused by the deinstallation of the previous slideshow component. I wrote to the developper and within a few hours, he had pointed me into the right direction and I was able to solve the serious problem myself.

So I can say out of experience that the developper is very responsive.

Certainly recommended and certainly worth the money.


Best choice I could find

This extension worked perfectly!! It has a really nice appearence and at first I had some trouble displaying more than 500 pictures from the same album from Flickr but I contacted the developper and he even changed the extension's code for me!! After that I can display as many pictures as I want in each album.

Thank you very much for the extension. It is really worth it paying for it

This product worked very well with my Joomla 2.5.6 install. I had little trouble embedding Picasa/Google+ and Flickr slides into my art gallery site. Right up there with the best slideshow/gallery extensions. ( I have a few things on my wish list, which I hope they will implement in the future)
