This is a very satisfying extension, fully customisable, and looks very nice. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because it is a bit hard for newbies to create the tag that creates the slideshow (at least the first time), unless you use the default options, then it is easy. There is very detailed documentation in any case.

Just what I have been waiting for! I needed a slide show plugin that would accept file names rather than a folder so that I could use it to display images whose names are stored in the database and retrieved using ChronoConnectivity. This means I can display all the photos from a specific real estate property or tour operator tour etc and they don't necessarily have to be the same amount etc. I was using a JavaScript slideshow before but this is a much neater solution. The code is also W3C valid. Thanks!
