Allthough the product and its documentation is really good, I had some questions concerning the usage on mobile browsers. The team of nextendweb offered an outstanding support: very fast, very friendly and really competent! All "problems" are solved! Thank you!

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.

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.
