This extension is simple to set up and use. The support, however, for a free extension, is superb and rare. My thanks to the team for providing this extension.

I tried several slideshow modules before this one and they all were complicated with features I didn't need. All I wanted was a simple display to show photos in rotation with the ability to link from each image. This module worked perfectly. I did get an error when I first opened the module, but once I created the image folder with the name and path indicated by the error, the error disappeared when I saved the module. If you want a very simple image rotation module with a nice selection of transition effects, stop wasting your time and download this one.

In search of a (relatively) simple image rotator module for one of my websites, I tried several extensions. They all had flaws, for example the fading-out and fading-in being not really smooth.

I stopped my search with VIK Slider: It worked out of the box, after a short period of puzzling about the unorthodox requirement to create a folder named "vikslider" to keep the images, instead of having the opportunity to assign just any deliberate folder (which would be the well established standard).

VIK Slider produces a nice, smooth transition from one picture to the next, and I will use it on this site.

I am giving not five but four stars due to the following problem: As far as I see, there is no opportunity to assign a deliberate folder keeping the pictures. Therefore, obviously, only one instance of the Module can be put in use on the site; it seems impossible to employ multiple copies of he module, each with its own folder keep the pictures. If one employs multiple copies of the module, they all would refer to the same "vikslider" folder...

A workaround might be to hack the php files of each copy and make it refer to a differently named folder. I have no tried, yet, but it shouldn't be too difficult.

Anyway, the lack of an option to choose the picture folder is a certain downside of this extension.

I've been searching high and low for an out-of-the-box image slider that works perfectly with the latest versions of Joomla... VikSlider really is the best I have found.
It's easy to set up, comes with a variety of cool effects built in and, most importantly, when I had a small issue and contacted the developers, they got back to me straight away with a solution.
If your looking for an Image Slider, stop here, you've found one!
Thanks :)

After downloading nearly a dozen image rotators and image sliders, NOT ONE, was able to accomplish the task except VikSlider! I run joomla 2.5.3 website and needed an image slider that could EASILY link external and internal URL's and this did it 1-2-3! I use this in a module on home page and it is very easy to upload and set-up. The only thing I had to do was create a folder in my images folder entitled vikslider (/images/vikslider/image1.jpg) and it worked like a charm. A good variety of slide effects to work with as well left-right button navigation if you want.
