ARI Image Slider is very easy to use and customize to your liking. I've never had any issues with conflicts. It has all the features I could need.
I'm now moving from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 and happy to see that ARI is upgrading their extensions to keep up with Joomla. I'd hate to do without some of them. Sure there are others out there but these suite my aesthetics and work great.
for everyone looking for an image slider I can only recommend this one.
I already tried so many but this is the one with the best functions, most opportunities and so easy to use.
But best of all is the support from Ari Soft if questions come up!
Great tool - great team - I would never use another one.
I had a unique situation using Ari Image Slider with Ari Colorbox. They have adapted the script in double quick time and now both work together in my unique environment, beautifully.
Here is a perfect example of Customer and Service working as if they were one.
You are the best - Many thanks.
The only issue I've had with it so far is the following:
It's not obvious or documented where the "ariimageslider.ini" file for descriptions should go -- I dug through the forum thinking there was a bug as to why it wasn't working, which wasted my time. Please mention this somewhere so future users don't have an issue with it!
Other than that this is absolutely superb... Thanks so much, and especially for making it free! :)
I'm using png files as my photos (only 3 pics total) and it seems that I can't configure the picture to fade OUT appropriately. Image A comes in then the transition begins for Image B but Image A doesn't fade all the way and I'm left with pic on pic for a few seconds which jumbles the text on those images. (btw these pics are like want-ads for my site which means they include text)
SOO... i found that while tweaking the params I could make it do something really awesome, just not what I'm looking for.. So my review is a Buyer/Downloader be-ware review.
Very good ext.!
What I did was in the Module Config. for the images path setting text box was put the correct path (images/slides) but in the process I had added a couple of line breaks and not noticed them as they are not visible, they removed them so that the path was left and that fixed it.
The other issue that is documented, but I missed it. The "ariimageslider.ini" for the captions and links must be in the same folder as your images or it won't work.
Thanks again to ARI Soft for such great products.
