I tried literally every free slider I could find. They either didn't work in one browser or weren't flexible enough or got some weird jQuery conflict. Finally, I decided to buy one and liked the reviews for Smart Slider. *This was the best $30 I ever spent on an extension.*

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!

I wonder why you have to be administrator to use this component. Other controlpanel users don't have access (the menuitem disappears). And why you have to paste the whole flash-code to make flashfiles work. Should be as easy as selecting the flashfile. Or at least there should be a choice between code and select. The other thing it's a bit hard to see the logic where the slides belong for some people.

"Have you ever dream about the perfect Slider extension for Joomla?"

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!

Completely agree with my colleagues, one of the best extensions for Joomla. The price is ok. In its category, the better. Complete and very flexible. The support service, spectacular. Required a small modification to my website and within 12 hours I have solved the problem. Totally recommended. Kovács Jenő thank you very much.
Sorry for my bad English.

This product is simply amazing.

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.

This extension is really useful because it is so flexible. You can easily change the look of your slideshow by customizing colors, fonts and effects. For what you get, the price is very reasonable.

If you do need help for some reason, support responds quickly. I highly recommend this extension!

I bought a licence about two months ago. Although I have yet to try every feature, I am so far very pleased with it and it has met the purpose for which I bought it.

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.

There is a lot of Slider/Tab component out there ! And some pretty good one too (Gavick Pro, the Yoo-Carousel, etc...)

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 !

I've been having a hard time finding any good joomla components lately. And the same goes for sliders, I've been going back and forth between 2 sliders for the past year. Both had major issues.

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.

There were a couple of hiccups getting this installed, but the support was fantastic to get it going correctly. I really like the setup of the parameters and the most amazing thing is that you have a preview in the configuration area so that you can see every change immediately without having to save then view your actual website. The default templates are great for picture and text. These guys did a great job.

It is the best slider in this page, like a toy for the Joomla users. I mean, I didn't feel that I work during the editing.
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.
