Extension works great and installs easily. Configuration isn't too bad either.

However, if you are at all concerned about SEO look elsewhere. The extension will create a duplicate url for every article on your site. In some instances 3 urls.

If you want to use this one then you will need a SEFurl extension like SH404 or AceSEF and manually change each url as you add content to your site.

Configuring this module is a breeze. Look no further if you need a news ticker. I tried several other solutions but this one is by quit a margin the best available.

Installation/configuration was a breeze. Definitely a nice looking product. I am having issues with mosets tree with it, so I can't use it on the site I got it for, but either will figure it out, or use it on other sites. Great Job!

This is not the first module I tested for news flash. The major advantage of this module is that it works perfect on all modern browsers. Other modules I tried to use had visual problems in some browsers.

I rated this extension as just average because it doesn't support K2. Now, that wouldn't be an issue, except that they include it in their K2 native templates. Why would you include a news display module in a template designed for K2 that didn't work with K2 ? If you have a non-K2 template, I think you'll like this extension.

This extension is working fine.
If you could have any option to choose which page title should this extension present, it would be Just Perfect.

I use sh404sef and i have custom page titles created by this extension and unfortunately News Highlighter GK1 is displaying Joomla page title.

Nevertheless is great.

This is what all Joomla extensions should be. Simple to use but with lots of well thought-out parameters.

So often an extension is almost right if it only had one more parameter to suit the specific need - this one has more than you need but you can pretty much ignore the ones you don't want. I had this up an running in minutes.

Love this extension and it does exactly what it says. Wish they would make the same thing for Twitter tweets. :)

I just have to say.. thanks! I did had a minor issue asI got some kind of conflict so I had to enable the function that is added so content will rotate if there is a script issue (i dont rememeber the name of the function), i believe is force mootols (again, not sure) but at the end the result was the expected. so easy to use

I don't know what the last reviewer was talking about; I had my highlighter up and running in less than 5 minutes! Works like a charm! PLUS the developer has a great sense of humor which adds to the enjoyment of using a great FREE product.

I would love to have given this a good review.

However, I found it quite impossible to do in the absence of ANY PERFORMANCE WHATSOEVER, good bad or indifferent, from this quite glowingly advertised module.

In short the software proved incapable of retrieving date from the db, so, while its display was highly configurable, its interface nothing short of beautiful, despite the fact that it caused no problems whatsoever with other JS driven modules/components on my Site, it was a pointless waste of four-and-a-half hours of careful, by-the-book, installing, 'configurating' and troubleshooting.

If it can't retrieve data for display, it is useless, a grievous waste of my time, and seems rigged to do nothing more than coerce a 'subscription' to a plan that gives access to their 'experts' via forum.

I would love to have had a chance to actually try the product before having to spend money on it.

VERY POOR public relations strategy -- only thing it got me to do was UNINSTALL THE CLUNKER and submit this BAD REVIEW.

I've been involved in Joomla for a couple of years now, building websites for myself as well as my numerous clients. Although the majority of code provided is free I rarely come across an extension that, right "out of the box" provides so many configuration options and ease of use as this module. Not only that, but the results it produces from the start immediately transform ANY website. Congratulations and thank you very much GAVICK for providing a FREE module (with almost the versatility of a full on component) which works so well (I've only been using it for literally 10 mins)

6 stars

Aside from me not unzipping first, this extension is great - I use it for news alerts on my community sites.

The extension is free after registration and if you change the color of the link text, the link text changes - kinda simple. The documentation is very professional.

Good work!
