The slider worked exactly as described and when I wanted to use it in a way not shown in the demos Gabor provided a test slider, pictures and html assistance to achieve what I needed. The responses were clear, worked and timely. Many thanks as I can now get on with the real job of populating the website and sliders.

By now Smart Slider 2 is the most powerful and flexible Slider solution available for Joomla.

In the very sophisticated and user friendly component administration you can design unique slideshows, showcases, galleries and animations within minutes.

Works perfect with Joomla content, image folders, social media sources like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr or YouTube. And also 3d party extensions like Cobalt, K2, ZOO, JoomShopping, MijoShop, Phoca Gallery, Ignite Gallery or VirtueMart 2. can be sources for your slides and showcases.

You just have to take care not to use too many image layers, this may cause jquery errors and very slow performance. This happened to me in my first experiments. But the more you learn about the structure and workflow logic the faster you will be able to create stunning slideshows and animations.

Support is very good, the documentation also. So Smart Slider 2 is worth every cent and one of the very best and most flexible Joomla extensions available.

Thumbs up!

This is a very powerful and beautiful slider. I purchased the $99 PRO version right out of the gate. As an inexperienced user of CMS and Joomla in general, yes I was like a deer with the headlights on. Daniel was really, really wonderful to work with and helped me get my training wheels off. The beauty is if you see a slide you like in their demos, they have these as sample sliders which helped me get up to speed after playing around duplicating, clicking around and getting comfortable. I received caring and GREAT support and am looking forward to working with NextEnd. Thanks for reading and I think you will be happy you got SMART Slider 2 if you do.

I've been impressed at how efficient and speedy the support has been - both pre-sales and post-sales. I had a problem caused by another extension and got a solution in minutes.
Installation was simple and the included examples are really useful for learning how everything works.

I'm very satisfied with the features and flexibility of this extension, can build various type of sliders and responsive as well.

I came up with an issue with a specific slider type on mobile, and the guys at NextEndWeb took care of it. Even tough it was a conflict caused by the template used instead of pointing me in the direction of the template provider, they provided me with a fix, this was not an obviousd fix, far from it.

I've got a lifetime membership, and don't regret it at all.

Thanks to Gabor & Roland at NextWebEnd, for the great & pro support.

I don't know how to start to put all my positive emotions into this review! I'm used to buy a component, and if there are problems, I first try to fix them myself, because support normally takes days to fix the problem. I'm comming more from the coding scene than the webpage building, and all I can say this component is really stunning!! Clearly coded, fast and reliable!! There was a slightly optically bug, ony visible on ipads under very rare situations. I was not even sure if I should contact the support about this, since it was hard to explain, reproduce and not a real problem. I gave it a try and contacted the support team. I got a response within MINUTES!! No auto reply, a real person caring about my problem! The best thing, it was fixed within hours (and it was really hard to find and to reproduce) and fixed on my page! As I already told you, I'm from the coding scene, and normally if there is a bug, a bug ticket is raised, and it takes weeks to month for such a minor priority problem to fix (if it will ever be fixed). This guys take their business serious! It's really the best support I got during the last 20 years in business, and that for such a small price. This component is not only worth the money, it would be worth 10x the money!

An incredibly powerful slider and excellent support!

Really you can do more with it than just normal sliders. The included tools are very powerful once you get used to using them and understand how they work. SmartSlider2 even includes packages you can import to instantly set up slider like the examples on their site...a huge time saving feature and also great for learning what's what in the back-end configure/control panels.

If you're looking for a slider which allows a high degree of customization and animation, this is pretty much it!

I installed Smart Slider 2, because the Extension, that came with the template, had some bugs. Smart Slider 2 fits in perfectly and is easy to configure. I had a litte problem which i could not fix - the programmer's support was very fast and competent. Thank you very much!

Wow, this slider surprised me with the variety of possibilities that can be utilised. I am looking forward to implement more of it. The support by the way is excellent too!

This is an amazing extension! I've been working with Joomla for a long time, and this is by far the best slider I've worked with.
The support is the best I've seen. (probably the fastest reply I ever had).
Highly recommended!

I've tried quite a few sliders in different projects, but I must say that Smart Slider 2 is by far the best. On one hand you have an integration with all the popular content providers (including e-commerce!) and on the other a fully customizable, powerful, sleek and visually stunning presentation. Lots of integrated layouts, support for html, video, iframes and more on slides, layers with parallax effects and pre-built animations. And all this wrapped in a great backend control panel. You just can't go wrong with this one.
And I haven't even mention support yet. It's fast, effective and professional.
5 stars and my slider of choice.

This component breaks the mold - no longer are we limited to restrictive templates and modules. With this system (which is so much more than a "slider" we have a whole new set of interactive tools that are only limited by our imagination.

The backend is amazing...the latest versions offers so many examples, tutorials, options. They should be an example to every other third party developer.

Oh, and did I mention their support is amazing!

By far the best extension I have worked with.
