This is the first review I am writing for any extension I have ever purchased for a good reason.

Their support was so efficient I did not have to wait for responses and fixes. Extremely professional. I would recommend this to anyone looking to purchase a slider for their website.

Ten out of ten!

I don't usually review plugins, but this one was definitely worth my time and money. I looked at about a dozen different sliders and in terms of functionality and versatility, smart slider definitely came on top. It just gives you a much wider range of things you can do - accordeons, multiple layers with different animations, cool background animation styles, etc. I bought a lifetime subscription. Support is great, they even log into your website and fix things for you sometimes.

Great that there is a demo version so you can try before you buy. Loads of options - your sliders can be as simple or as complex as you want them to be, very customisable, and - compared to a lot of other extensions - some clear and thorough documentation. Recommended.

The best slider on the market for Joomla. It allows you to do pretty much anything - there are so many possibilities. More importantly support is great. These guys know what they are doing :)

exept this being a very high end product, that means I got to do exactly the type of slider I wanted even with some very specific interactions . easy to customize and yet a lot of good templates.

And the support? Just amazing, fast reliable, professional, and at least with me had a lot of patience :)

I just wanted to make a simple slideshow with captions. But the interface has thousands and thousands of options and I'm finding creating a custom slideshow very difficult to navigate. Sometimes less is more, and that's how I feel with regard to smart slider 2.
