I just installed the slideshow and I deactivated jQuery.

When I had a look in the sourcecode of my website, all the libaries from wide slide were still there

So my jQuery was loaded twice. Not really good.

I know that this module it for free, but I still can expect that things are working properly

Please ask for help before leaving a bad review. It does unload jquery. It still loads the needed scripts to run the slideshow. Does it work as expected?

I've wanted an extension to put in the header of my site to slide some images with overlaying text and links.
This extension did the job for me with ease in just a few minutes.
Thank you very much.

I have tried many sliders, WideSlid is the best. WideSlid really responsive generated jpeg images, works perfectly with Joomla 3.x together, invites infinite number of images from a folder and is easy to set up. Fantastic!

It realy work easly and to me seems also responsive.

It is good that you have to set only a directory and not any single files path for make a Slide Show.

Very simple the setting.

Why Not 5 stars? I can find instruction about caption and descripition: there is a demo on site, but i can't set Caption&Descripion for more that one graphis (the first). I'm sure that the setting need a symbol for indicate the new "line" but i can find it.

Tested on 2.5.x and two sites
