I really like this extension because it has a wide range of different parameters, and most of all it looks good.
However, this is not rated 5 - as I am missing a few more transition effects. I am not that impressed by the "only slide to the side" effects.
Overall a good product.
What do I mean by this? It's the only one with a decent component/module setup that allows my clients to easily and simply manage their slides.
It's easy to setup, works out of the box and supports template overrides.
Plus, it uses Joomla's MooTools framework, so no additional libraries are added to your site's overhead.
Plus: intuitive admin interface
Plus: highly configurable
Plus: smart slide management
Plus: easy to customize
Plus: perfectly predictable behaviour
Smarter than some commercial components and certainly the best of the free options I evaluated
Thanks to the developers !
Actually signed up for an account just to leave this review.
There are ofcourse always room for improvements and enhancements in most cases, but with this one, I can't think of one as of yet.
And yes, you can set the speed and delay.
Thanks for a great module and component.
Have fun with it!
