Very nice extension, I often use it for news-blocks that need a consistent layout. Especially the image cropping possibilities always give me a good solution.
Setting it up sometimes takes some time due to the large number of configuration options.

Really! Lots of configuration options and it works (almost)very well. Thanks guys, this new tool is the best tool ever. And free!

Small minus: the background color choice was not working

I thought this met all my requirement but I can't get it to display anything. Screen goes white so obviously there's a conflict somewhere.

simply one of the best solutions to use to retrieve items in the module. Complete the very large variations of settings, including all the most common needs. RESPONSIVE 100%. fluid layout and extremely customizable. Hard to find a free extension so complete and powerful. RECOMMENDED.

This could easily be the best News Display module if it wasn't for one fatal flaw. You have no option for selecting how the content will animate, only the speed of animation.

As such, your content will move from right-to-left in the time interval you select.

But...the module does not offer the very simple-but-popular option of fading articles in and out instead of sliding them from right-to-left.

I really hope the good people at Gavick realize this shortcoming and remedy it soon!
