Superb extension, very flexible, very modern & professional. Also, I think that for any joomla extension, besides the functionality & features, there are 3 things that are very important: support, support and support -- and zentools / joomlabamboo team has provided an impeccable support. Thanks guys.

I don't think I have seen a more versatile and friendly module in my six years of working with Joomla! The Zentools module is an awesome addition to the Joomla! web designers toolbox. I am not sure I could manage without it, or not sure if I want to manage without it! It can be used to created several cool module options to easily include in your website. The designer of this versatile tool, from Joomla Bamboo, is one of the most creative in the business. Zentools is easy to use and contains many super options for versatility including: slideshows, grids, carousels and accordions that make it a pleasure to use. Is this the only image rendering module tool you need? I think it might be. I give this a triple A+!

I use zentool by a couple of years, as well as joomlabamboo templates and extensions. Zentool combine all the feature I need - and many more - coupled with great styling, elegance and excellence in coding and usability.
Its by far the most useful single all-in-one extension I have used.
And, as with all in joomlabamboo, the support is absolutely fabulous.

Highly recommended. A must!

joomlabamboo has created a versatile, easy to use extension for presenting your photos and articles in an elegant way called Zentools. A lot of thought went into the options included, options that are easily understood and combined into a myriad number of presentations you can envision. Well worth having in your extension and component library.

Add the fact that joomlabamboo has a set of elegant templates (they really are, made to accent your content not the template) and the best support going - people who know joomla and the supporting technologies and who apply their knowledge to help their clients succeed in building their visions.

This has to be the most useful extension available for content presentation. It seems like there are no limitations to the kind of layout you can create with this superb extension. I am even able to create selectable content via category triggers - bypassing the (ridiculous) need to create endless menu items. It's a paid app, but well worth it. (If you use K2, there is a matching Zenkit template-within-a-template system.)

I've been using JB Zentools and Joomlabamboo templates for several years now. I have also used others. I have learned the hard way that I can use any code I want, but it's value is measured by the support I get when things don't go just right. I have never had better support than I have had with Joomlabamboo. And when my customer depends on me getting it fixed, that's where the rubber meets the road. I cannot afford NOT to use JB.

This code is spectacular. The developer really has an eye for composition and good UI. Support is also exemplary. Their templates are also quite beautiful!

This tool has so many configuration options, and many different layouts. This one module can be used in so many different ways. The administration interface is easy to use, and the options are intuitive. It's good to use the demo site to help guide the layouts, but it's a tool that will keep surprising you by how clever it is.

We are currently upgrading a site to 2.5 and I am using this module at least 3 times on the home page and once on an inner page.

It is a slider, gallery, news reel +++++ all in one, and it looks fantastic.

And by a great Aussie team.

Ok, love fest over :D

I join Joomlabamboo just for this module! The flexible it gives you is unbelievable. And when it came to creating my responsive gallery to adjust to my users device (Tablet, iPhone or desktop) it just works! But Zentools allows you to do so much that it hard to believe its just a module and not a component! Since finding this module I have placed this module in everything. Rarely do you find a module or component that just works without keeping you up at night when it comes to the developers that post their extension here, but trust me this baby works! And if you run into any problem Anthony or "A" Man is there to shoot you an answer for any problem you may have. But once you get the hang of how this module works you are going to put it in every new project you start! Just logon to to see this baby in action!

Plus they have the most Responsive Templates for Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 on the market: Platform, Lifestyle, Colourshift, Responsive, Epicure and Vintage that have my clients thinking I am a Joomla Website Building God!

Every now and then when you log-on to you come across something special and this just happen to that something special!

I've been using Zen Tools for a while now and am glad to see it finally appear in the JED. It's a great tool - easy to use and versatile. I find it particularly handy for portfolios.
