Great Product!

Posted on 17 December 2014

Provides all the features I was looking for and is a huge improvement from the original version which was great as well.

Ease of use

Setup takes a little effort but once you're started and comfortable anyone can edit and update the slides with ease.


Found a minor bug and within an hour of email conversation they had identified and corrected the issue for both my site and their code!


Can find the answer to every question I've had quickly and easily.

Value for money

Excellent value!

I used this to: I have announcements for news and a calendar on the homepage of a nonprofit site I manage.

I have worked with Smart Slider 2 component already for a few months and I have to say that this component is the best and most advanced Joomla slider component I have ever seen.

Thanks to the developers!!!

I was looking for a way to display price tables in a cool way and I found this amazing component. I bought the cheapest plan because I thought I could set all by myself and it is actually quite easy to use the extension but I couldn't get it to work on my website. Even though support was not included in my subscription plan i contacted the guys from Nextend and wanted to pay for help. I got reply in minutes time by Gabor. He was really helpful. I gave him access to my site and he explained all the problems abd fixed them even though the problems were not by the component. I am really really impressed with Smart Slider 2 and the wonderful support by their professional team!

Totally recommended!

I've made a lifetime subscription and already the high quality of the product had justified the purchase. The extraordinary, timely and professional assistance of mr. Gabor Racz was a pleasant surprise. He not only answered me within few hours but he also created for me a code to fit a couple of functions I needed but that were not present in Smart Slider 2. This is a product that I recommend to all, not only because of everything I've written above but also for the high code quality, for the high customization and the large compatibilty with the most famous components for Joomla!

I cannot speak highly enough of the support regarding this extension. Great extension that does everything it says it will and Gabor's support is AMAZING.

That is a great component. If you are looking for a reason to unleash your imagination... Here it is !!!

Gabor gives excelent support.

this product give you too many options to create awesome sliders, almost everything you can imagin

and the support is more than awesome, almost instant and they do everything you ask for very very fast.

I totally recommend this product because of the very good support and i created the slides i wanted to create, i looked for other extensions but this one gave me what i needed and more

I am building a new site and was looking for a slider to showcase my images. I tried a lot of sliders and none of them come close to what this slider offers. This is a great product with so many options, there is something for everyone. Just turn on the settings that best suit your needs.

I have to take a moment to point out that the support for this component is simply amazing. They are prompt in following up and you don't have to wait forever to get your issues addressed.

This is what ALL extensions should be like. Very robust, well planned and executed with customer support that is second to none.

Thank you for a great product.

I use Smart Slider on almost all of my clients' websites. Yes, sometimes troubles arise but Nextend's great support is second to none. The ability to develop a great slider on Joomla and then export it as an html file makes the Smart Slider a piece of software that is more than just a Joomla component--it is a tool that you can use across all your html websites, Joomla or not!

Great work guys! Look forward to you next release!

I have smart slider on two J2.5 sites and its not a good experience as it does not work all the time. If you are first time user the slider loads perfectly and if you refresh the page its gone...., I have contacted support team(WPC140221-3721-82168) regrading the Jquery conflict but they could not solve it either....

Its a great Product for sure, I see a beautiful slider as soon as I clear the cache but otherwise its a point less extension.

Owner's reply: I'm sorry that you have bad experience with Smart Slider 2. Nowadays almost every extension and template use jQuery, but not every updated often. It means that some of the extension stuck on older jQuery-s or the template is not updated also. It can result in jQuery conflicts, between the different versions. (The most usual is that an old extension try to use the jQuery.browser which is depreciated since 2009). Smart Slider's jQuery tries its best to avoid these conflicts, this is why it works fine when our jQuery enabled. To be able to make Smart Slider work without its own jQuery, you should solve the issues in your other extensions and template (or contact with their support to fix those conflicts). Also jQuery Easy plugin is a great deal as most of the times it work great. You can find it on JED.

If you still feel that our extension is the faulty one, please open a support ticket on our site and I will take care of this issue for you!
