Smart Slider 2 comes with a reliable, flexible and intuitive interface for backend, which makes easy for anyone to design beautiful sliders in minutes. Grab a new layer, move it on the canvas, finally drag&drop some items with your mouse and your slide is ready.

Change color, font, background, link, position, size, etc...

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!
Yes! And the Offlajn crew has made this dream come true.
Wonderful extension: does what any other can't do (no other offer so many functionalities), easily configurable through a very cool and functional panel (seriously, you get it working in less than two minutes, without the hassle of all the others), beautifully designed, and the best - there are so many customization options that it looks like you have not one extension, but five or six (if not more).
I suggest everyone who's not sure whether to use this extension to visit Offlajn's site. Don't forget to hold your jaw firmly in place, because after seeing the demos *and* the price...chances are that it'll drop with all the awesomeness ;)
Cheers from a *very* happy customer!
Sorry for my bad English.
It can bring a site to life with minimal effort. It's simply, chic and looks amazing.
This is the 3rd Component I have purchased from these developers and I can vouch for them 100% ... They bring a fresh breathe of air to developing with Joomla. They understand consumer needs and dvelop their products on that basis with great design over the top.
Check out ALL their products, simply great.
If you do need help for some reason, support responds quickly. I highly recommend this extension!
If you are considering a slider, have a look at the demos on their website to get an idea of what can be achieved.
The administrative interface is slick and easy to use.
Support has been excellent, with quick and constructive responses.

So I am happy that we made a slider extension for Joomla, which meets your needs and helps you on your great sites and I am happy that you share your pleasures, your problems and your great ideas with us. Keep up the good work and feel free to contanct us with our support channel!
Most of them let you embed content, articles, code, etc... but all of them will have their restriction at some point (not been able to embed video, pictures, etc...).
Well Smart Slider just seems to have ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES ! It took me so long to find a component that could easily embed videos, pictures, articles, modules and etc...
The back-end is SUPER easy to use, very userfrendly, beautifully design. Do you know a component that let you preview the modification your doing LIVE right from the BACK-END ? Well Smart Slider actually does that !
Really, this component is worth the small cost ! It's time saving and it has endless possibilities to offer !
Great component !
So I was a little anxious to buy a new component. But this has revived my hope for joomla in general.
It works just perfectly, and most importantly in all browsers. It's cachable. And highly customizable.
And to top it off, support couldn't be any better.
Noticable that the developer was working a plenty of time to create a great extension and I see that every piece of the slider was planned.
Personally I think that in these days, Roland has the best sence for designing in Joomla. The themes are also fantastic!
Good luck in the future and thanks again for this great component.
