This is a nice piece of work, easy to use, intuitive and with really nice results. The extension worth every penny.
A couple days ago, I had an issue on my site and somehow my smart slider got affected, I've submitted a ticket with access to my site and they managed to fix the problem within a day! Gentleman's, This is a professional team, I'd stick to them If I were you. :)
Thanks for the support.
What's more, the support I have received from Offlan is amazing - they really went out of the way to help me customise the slider theme.
But a problem, this extension does not work with cck Seblod. Too bad because I need Seblod.
What do you mean under it doesn't under "does not work with cck Seblod"?

Another advantage is that it is easy and pleasant to use, with realtime previews on the slide you're working on. Thus saving time. This slider is absolutely the best I could find. It's not just 'smart' it's 'super smart'!
It has so many options and it`s incredibly flexible that I used it all over my site with great result.
I`m a beginner in Joomla but this slider is very intuitive and easy to use that I got magic result with just few click.
It has an extensive advanced options that allow me to create whatever I want!Great,a suggest to anybody!
Support also get a 5 stars!Any problem I had I got a reply within few hours and everything was fixed just perfectly!
The product is excellent and very intuitive to use so not a steep learning curve but does every thing you could want from a slider with captions.
If you need a flexible slider, do yourself a favor and just buy this one.
Instead of spending 2 hours trying to munge code that I don't understand via ftp, I spent 2 hours playing with the fabulous settings. I will use this on every site I build. It rocks.
Here is why it rocked (for me)
1. Loads fast in all browsers
2. Allows HTML in the captions for linking
3. Super easy to set up with a WYSIWYG console that also allows toggle to HTML.
4. Really nice and smooth effects
An added plus was the preview in the set up so you could see what everything looked like rather than going back and forth from the dev site.
I am going back on the developer's website to see what else they make that I can pay for and not waste time!
Thanks so much!
