Its a nice module that i'm working with on over 15 websites.

It does what it says with a clean and easy way. The only minor problem is that if you have SEF enabled it searches for /undefined. User dont see the problem (the problem is visible if you search your site with firefox console mode) so there is nothing wrong with that but it would be good if they fixed it.

I found this module to be reasonably straight forward to set-up and use. However, it is missing some polish.

Solution for "linked article appears beneath the module": This occurs because your article is not associated with a Joomla menu item. (This actually occurs with a number of modules, and is not unique to LOF Article Slideshow.) This can be resolved by creating a new menu with the single articles or category list as menu items. If you don't want to display the items in a menu, publish the menu, but don't create a module for it.

Very good extension for showing front page news and articles! After having paid for another extension that drove me crazy with its difficulty to customize, i found this one and could not believe i could do exactly what i needed and totally free!!! Show articles from multiple categories, only show featured articles, images resized automatically to fit, different color options!! Thank you for this excellent extension!

Was searching for something eye-catching to put on the homepage of my site. This module looks great and is easy to use, I immediately knew that this was a keeper.

I've seen multiple bad reviews concerning bad support. However when I opened a support ticket, I got my question answered in about a week. This is great support for a free module in my opinion.

I've been searching for days to find an article slide show and this one does the job. So many don't seem to and I don't know how they produce their demos, but this one produces exactly what they demonstrate. I've also learned a lot about Joomla from it.
Thanks to the authors.

The extension is good, works nice for a lot of sites and articles. Easy to install and setup.
The proble is the support, is zero.

This could be a superb extension, if only the developer would answer the many many questions on the support forum all about the same issue (even if he only said he didn't know the answer would be better than no response at all). At present when you attempt to open an article from the slideshow it puts the article underneath the slideshow instead of opening it on a new page as you would expect. Until this is resoled it is completely unusable.

This module is simple to use, and to customize if you're an advanced user. I like that it offers the features of some commercial modules for free. And also ease of use is very important, with it I thought my client to use it in a matter of minutes.

I must say that I cannot agree with the previous comment as I found the module very intuitive and had absolutely no problems setting it up. It is very flexible in terms of what options are available and I would recommend it to anyone needing to display content in this manner.

I have hit one problem and that is with a Responsive template where the module doesn't reduce gracefully but I would be surprised if this issue isn't resolved very soon.

Do NOT install if you want it to work more specifically so that it meets your exact needs. Or if you don't know how to use article id's.

The extension looks fanky but the developer has made NO documentation on how to make this work and you have to find it out yourself. Yes, even though that he CLAIMS there is documentation, in reality there is NO documentation. I personally lost 3 hours looking everywhere. And don't consider asking the developer, he doesn't even reply to customers with PAID versions or in forums.

He (or they) works hard for making many many plugins but there is no real care for his customers. Compare a super-duper documentation such as the Akeeba Backup with this non-existent trash.

Dev, I 'm sorry for the hard critic, but someone should shout truth about Joomla's sake.

Works as intended, though there are still some bugs with current version (e.g. when using custom class name).
Customization and usage are excellent!

I like the way this module works, but i have several errors in IE. I posted to the landofcoder forum where it says "I'll answer you in 24h", but never got a response. It has been four weeks now.

The same problem than the second comment of this review. When I make a click on a new, the new appears at the bottom of the module. It matters that I wanna that the module can disappear

I like this module so much that i tend to use it on all my sites so I thought I ought to write a review. Very slick and customizable but most importantly, super easy to use!
