I contacted the developer about this numerous times and had a good conversation through emails. Providing them access to the administration panel to the website to ensure i was not doing anything wrong and giving them a shot to fix it like they offered.
It seems once they realized that the script would not run on my website due to the Full Ajax plugin, and abandoned the issue. Without receiving any replies to my latest emails and no reimbursement like their policy said should be applicable in this situation, I decided to post here to warn any other Full Ajax users of the issue and so forth.
Again, great extension, but unfortunately poor service in my experience.
It also comes with good documentation. I'm now looking at other 2J extensions: I've been impressed.
I had a little problem when I installed it. I opened a support ticket and had a response almost immediately! This has to be the most prompt support I have ever received from any extension. Very impressive!
Support is simply great. We submitted a support ticket earlier this morning, and expected to wait 3 or 4 days for an answer.
To our surprise the 2joomla team responded within 15 minutes and had solved the issue after another 3 minutes of work on our joomla installation.
That's what I call value for money ;)
Thank you for your kind words! We're almost finished with new update for our extensions compatible with Joomla! 1.6/1.7. We had implemented alot of new interesting features requested by our customers. We're almost finish with testing of new version and planning to make release in close future. Keep watching for updates. We're really appreciate your attention.
I like ability to build "matrix" slider when slides moving by diagonal. Looks really awesome! Looking forward for Joomla 1.6 version!
I'm using different extensions in my projects and for the last site I was try to use more then 5 different sliders and every one of them have some kind of the issues with custom designed template, but it's not about 2jnewsslider.
When I install it was up and running in few min. and most important that I didn't get any conflicts or another mismatches in CSS or something.
Really in love with this component and now even more.
Thank you 2joomla team, planning to buy another 2joomla extensions in future!
Due to time I have spent troubleshooting other sliders, it was so nice to buy this one and have it work out of the box. It's worth the money because it saves your time.
Support was really fantastic! I was have couple of questions about settings and plugin usage. This guys reply me really fast. They was make me some samples directly on my server and explain all details. It's really great tool!
Keep up a great job!
