Works like a charm and was easy to setup! The only improvement I can think of is an option to change the color of the bullets. But this can also be done manually. Thanks for this module!

I can't say enough about this extension -

(And that says a lot about the company & people!)

First, it worked great, has a very straightforward & well-designed interface & parameter-layout, - - But most importantly, when I had a problem that companies who charge big $$ for a less-adequate component, don't-even-respond-to on THEIR forums, - Bowthemes replied to me within 1 hour.

And, amazingly, their forum didn't 'delete' my post after letting me type it in, and the response was warm & smart. - 5 stars all the way.

We've been using this extension on our 2.5 site for some time and it's the best of the bunch we could find. Our site is a charity site so free extensions are our only real choice and this was the best we could find having tested loads. Nice flexibility - powerful yet clean. Well done and thanks.

You can even test out the features of the slider on their website before downloading the slider!

Works perfectly on Joomla 3.2. No errors, no conflicts.

If you are looking for a slider, this is it. Hats off to the developers for this brilliant extension.

You've made it really great. This is so simple to use and yet very powerful. Blends seamlessly in Responsive designs.

I was breaking my head to have something on the Home Page of a fully loaded article (no images) based site and this one truly worked well.

Wish List:
- Option to include or exclude sub-categories when main category is selected.

What a great way to show content.

I was looking for a content slider that was free and could customize a lot of things. When I found BT Content Slider I was very happy that I finally found what I was looking for.

It's great that you can make sure there isn't to much text, it uses the image you have selected for the article which makes it easier. You can make it bigger or smaller, in how many items you want per row or column.

All in all it is just an amazing module that does the trick in the easiest way possible!

I registered, just to say thanks to developers for this one, you need to register on their site, its quick and easy, and get access to all their free extensions.

This Slider is Perfect, I can choose to display Content with Thumbnails Responsively, Ordered by HITS, Article ID Etc

I can customise the thumbnail sizes, display article and or category titles

I can show any number of Specific Articles via ID or hand Pick Category's excluding featured content naturally if you want.

What else? Transition and Navigation Customisation, u bet..

Module Class Suffix... yep of course.

I cant think of anything i didn't get in this magnificent module.

go for it...

It is responsive as it says.
It is fully configurable.
It is simple to use.

Thank you for this great extension!

This is really an awesome plugin!

I was using a plugin which hadn't been updated in a while and then I found this.

The support is really great even though this is a non-commercial plugin!! My doubt was answered in less than 12hours! How good is that?

I am using another plugin from these guys too.. This extension is great with a lot of possibilities in-built for customization..

Excellent module. Have been searching for a module to show images of K2 articles. Tried this free module and it does exactly what I had in mind. There are really many options to customize the module. Thanks!

The Bowthemes website offers user to test-run components before purchase or download!! Once I discovered that the Content-Slider did exactly what I wanted, I downloaded it.
Not only does it work very well and offers many useful options, it looks great in back-and frontend!!
Nice work guys!!!
