Smart Slider 2
Ok, YES the learning curve is a bit more with this extension than most slide shows. However, once you have it figured out it is awesome! It works fantastically, and you can create your own slider styles. Tired of looking for a slider that looks just like you want? Search no more. With this slider you can create that look you want. No more multiple extensions for slide shows that act or look differently on the same site. One extension, multiple possibilities.

I LOVE that the placement of the arrows and such can be set right in the admin panel instead of having to dig through css styles. Multiple similar slideshows are no problem with this extension. Simply duplicate the slide show and change the slide images, or whatever else needs to be changed and done. Duplicating slides is also a great benefit. Kudos to the developers for a well thought out extension.

Thanks for your review! We're glad to see that you're satisfied with our extension. :)

Because the Smart Slider 2 is a non-stop playground for us we're going to release a ton of new feature in the next year: new slider type, animations and extra demo sliders to export into your site and so on. So stay tuned. :)

Cheers,

SJ Content Mega Slider
After reading the meager reviews here I was a bit concerned about this extension. However, it is pretty much one of a kind in the type of presentation presented and not overly expensive so I decided to give it a try. I was not happy when after almost 24 hours after purchasing the extension, I still had not received the product. After a couple of emails, support tickets, and finally a dispute through PayPal, I received the extension. Overall I am pretty happy with it. The css wasn't too bad to modify. However I did have some issues. The first was when I didn't want the content image to link to the article. I had to find and modify the code in the in the default.php file for this. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, I had no access to the slide transition parameters in the module. I had to look at the xml file to determine the options and then modify the database to get those parameters set as I wanted. I do like the look of this product, but feel that this extension would not be useful to someone that isn't experienced in code enough to do these things. If there was better support available I would have rated it much higher.

I found this extension pretty easy and intuitive. The css file was nicely laid out and easy to modify. There is another extension almost exactly like this one, that I downloaded first. That one had text shadows and other undesirable css elements.
