I wanted to try this extension, it looks promising. However it does not work in Joomla 3.2. You can install it, but that is as far as I got.

Many thanks for your comments. We've actually started rebuilding NSP from the ground up, so if you're after the latest, feature-rich version of NSP that's compatible with the newest Joomla releases you should download the main 'News Show Pro' release, available via our site (just follow the download link on this page).

News Show Pro GK4 is still available for download and we will continue to provide support for it via our GitHub repository, but the general News Show Pro release will be the main version.

My experience with all gavick items has ended the same - I felt like I was paying to be a beta tester with their versions of Joomla 3.x

Newspro was the greatest example of this. As soon as I'd find a way to fix one bug, I'd run into two more.

When I'd ask for help on the forums, I'd either get more questions than answers, or I'd get adnauseum requests for the URL of my site instead of possibilities of the error.

I do not wish to give my URLs. I've included screen shots and documented examples of what's happening, I should not need to give out my personal sites in order to get to the bottom.

Minus this, I'd have rated their products 5 stars.

As it stands, Fair is the best I can give.

Unclear if the production version is V4 or V5? Also no instructions on how to upgrade, if in fact, that is necessary. So far - on a demo J3.1, I've found numerous inconsistencies (ie bugs) on V5. The forums are paid subscription only. Maybe for their non-commercial extensions developer should consider open-forums?

I found a bug in this module when using limit of word count. It allows additional images to flood into the display where thumbnails are supposed to display one image. I spent hours trying to figure this out. When I contacted developer, they closed my ticket and told me that I have to pay for support.

Our ticket system is available only for the owners of the Developer Membership - other users get the AUTOMATIC information about this fact. That automatic message also contained an information that for the free products (like this module) users should use the issue section on the official Github repository:

And the most important - reported problem wasn't a bug but a problem with the wrong module configuration.

This module is exactly what I needed, and pleasantly surprised by how detailed it has been made for non-commercial version.
One thing though, I am having problem applying "Portal Mode," as it does not show any contents whatsoever, where I would have absolute no trouble with "Normal Mode." Unfortunately, I could not find any solution in their forum. ("Use default CSS" to be enable didn't resolve the issue, neither.)
FAQ would have been nice, but I shouldn't ask too much. :-)

Very good and flexible. We have also used it for a scrolling "Testimonial" module. My only complaint is that it does not take to custom HTML very well but overall we are satisfied.

To all who are looking for the best module for displaying article in front end. Listern up

I have spent a week downloading, installing, testing, then uninstalling various news slideshows and extensions. This is the first one that worked correctly, does everything I need, and reads formatting correctly. I almost have to use free extensions because my site is on a non-profit budget. News Show Pro GK4 saved my site and my budget!

I used this extension on Joomla 1.5 sites with no problems, but this was my first time on a 2.5 site. Sadly, the module fails to show any of my content no matter how I set it.

Turning to the developer's website, you soon discover that to merely ask a question on the forum will cost at least $51 and given all the complaints on the forum, getting a prompt answer seems dicey at best. For anyone with an issue similar to mine, the developers seem to respond no better advice than "RTFM." Well, I did RTFM -- many times -- and it's not helping me. Bad attitude all around.

It seems like a fine extension, but it is not worth $51.

I had version 1.3 of this component come with a template I purchased. I decided to update the module as I needed K2 support. The module that was functioning but without the feature I needed became completely broken. Choosing K2 as a source, caused the site to fail to load with an error from this module. Choosing Joomla as a source let the page load but with multiple errors. googling found nothing much on these errors, and there is no way to contact support on a "free" extension without paying for it. Documentation said nothing about these kinds of errors. It's almost dishonest to provide these kinds of things for free and not even allow basic access to a user to user forum for support, even if the devs don't want to directly handle your support requests.

It looks you have some cache issue to figure out. The preview articles show up everywhere as soon as I display the page where its supposed to appear. Not functional then. Looks like a good extension though

First, I like this extension, it does almost every thing I need it to do. One flaw, you cannot use a dollar sign ($) in an article title or intro text (if displaying intro text). If you do use "$" it will not display it or the next 2 characters. (This used to be a larger Joomla issue, but no longer). With this being a free product understandably there is limited to no support, however, there isn't an obvious way to report bugs such as these (posting to the forum is locked to paid support accounts). I reported this bug through the sales contact form, as it was the only open door I could find. It has been about a month and a new release has been issued without a fix. Again, I get that support is for paying customers, but there should be an open forum or form to report bugs and a "known bugs" page to know that the developer is aware of bugs.

Item Order doesnt work in redhop, i tried all the options but nothing changed i shows only the first products that i have added. And unfortunately no support in their forum for free members.

Very good extension, free and highly customizable. Maybe perfect if also the other options over the first one are cutomizable, for example a multicolumns order for every kind of display.

Thank you so much for this component!
