This module is cross-browser compatible, tested on IE6+, Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Safari.
Simple and easy as 1-2-3!
New in version 1.1:
* added fade transition effect with duration control
(See EasyjQuery), then HOT IMAGE SLIDER worked exactly as it is supposed to work.
All in all, this is a great looking extension that does exactly what I want and will not make updating content a chore.
Well done guys and thank you for making it free!
1) Didn't want a text description and couldn't get rid of the black bar on top.
2) The way the slides reverse is unusual and unnecessary. My clients will ask why does it do that and can you make it stop.
Nearly : Had to scan the support forum and tweak the php for the background to appear correctly...
Quite : Seems to interfere with other modules, doesn't work with the modules anywhere plugin...
If you can live with the limitations, fits the bill for the occasional local slider.
I see that it has been updated a long time ago, but I hope that developer are still working on it, and we will be able to use this extension on Joomla 1.6 websites. I've tried the migration to 1.6 and it seems kind of easy as this extension was written following Joomla extension development guidelines.
Fantastic support for a free product.
Highly commended and recommended.
Does EXACTLY what it says it will.
EASY to install and configure!
Had this puppy loaded up and rocking out on my site in apprx 10 minutes.
How anyone could gives this slider less than 5 Stars is beyond me.
A SUPER COOL, KICK BUTT EXTENSION!
Easy setup and configuration.
I had one issue with the images covering up the dropdowns on my menu. I submitted it on the support forum and received a response within an hour!
Took a bit of playing around, but I had to update the code in the module to use jquery 1.4.1 (modules/mod_hot_joomla_gallery/tmpl/default.php):
The script source in there kept giving me an error in IE8 for some reason.
I don't know why it did it to me, because very few others seemed to have this problem!
This component works really well and it does what its supposed to. I would like to thank the developer for creating this module and offering it for free. It works really well.
I think 2 things that keep this component from being "perfect" are:
1. not being able to add more images
2. not being able to randomize the display of the images
Other than that, this module rocks!
Personally, I'm a Firefox guy, but not everyone else is, so it HAS to work in IE.
I'm presently using IE8 with compatibility mode on.
the menu tabs are falling far below the bottom of the block and won't sit right. (snug)
It's a shame, too, because it looks and works good in Firefox, but i can't use it and have already spent an hour trying to do so.
Thank you anyway.
Your efforts have not gone unnoticed
This is not true, you can open our demo site with IE7 (or IE8 compatibility mode) and see how it works. It works in IE6 as well.
If it's not working on your template, there's probably some kind of CSS conflict between your template and this module.
