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.
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.
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.
Thanks to the authors.
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.
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.
