BE WARNED: There is NO support whatsoever for the free version. You can view questions in the forum, but you cannot see the answers (if they are answered!) without a subscription.
This would not be a problem if the extension works straight out the box, but it doesn't!!
These are some of the major problems I have found;
1) Cannot create a new slider - the button is missing!!
2) Even though it says changes are saved, they are not.
3) Cannot delete layers, the only one you can delete is the one you've just created. Selecting a layer and clicking the dustbin does nothing.
4) Couldn't uninstall the component either due to a manifest file missing, so had to restore my site from a backup.
So, in summary... if you want an extension which doesn't work, cannot uninstall or get support for, then this is for you. It had promise, but the execution is poor.
A1) Cannot create a new slider - the button is missing!!
R1) This is a logic we followed the Joomla article creation guide, where you will need to create a New Category before adding new slide to the component, but we will fix this in the future version where the category will be included.
A2) Even though it says changes are saved, they are not.
R2) Sorry if you have trouble using YESlider, can you give me some insight on how this happen, we are here to help. Even the forum is for support subscription customer only, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or our lead programmer email@example.com
A3) Cannot delete layers, the only one you can delete is the one you've just created. Selecting a layer and clicking the dustbin does nothing.
R3) If you can contact me and give me access to the back panel, and we can have a look and quickly fix it for you. And sorry if you are having trouble with the slider. But we don't see the problem you are having, can we know what browser and platform are you using?
A4) Couldn't uninstall the component either due to a manifest file missing, so had to restore my site from a backup.
R4) We had tried to uninstall in our local and dev site, but both seems working, maybe some file is missing during download or upload? We will have to have a closer look, if you can give us some access we can help you with the fix.
It does exactly what is says on the tin. I had the extension installed and working on J3.2.2 within 10 minutes. The editor 'button' is a nice touch which makes entering the string very easy.
I did have a small problem with the extension (which turned out to be a spelling mistake on their website) but a quick email to the Support Team resolved the problem.
I received a very professional and courteous reply from Konstantinos within a couple of hours of emailing. Can't ask for better than that!
This is a nice little gem of an extension!
Installation was easy and trouble free on J!3.2.2, but I did have a problem with one of the digits not being aligned properly.
Within 20 minutes of contacting the support team, they sent me a 'fix' which has sorted the problem. Excellent all round - recommended!!
The extension was easy to install and configure. I ran into a small problem, posted the issue on their website and I had a solution from Adam within an hour - can't say better than that for a FREE extension!
However, I soon found getting the extension to work was very hit and miss, try it on a non a joomshaper template and you will all kinds of problems.
Support is very patchy, with most replies being along the lines of "try another template" when reporting problems.
This could be a great extension - if the developers put the time and effort in fix the 'bugs'. A great shame.
The extension was very easy to install and configure on J! 3.2.1 and I had it up and running in minutes.
Support is First Class as well. I ran into a problem changing the text in the 'Are you Sure?' dialog message, so popped the question on their website and it was answered in minutes. Excellent.
Thank you so much for appreciating us.
CONS: Raised ticket to report a problem, but was told after 2 days that ticket's are for 'commercial' products only, and have to use the 'forum' - this isn't mentioned in the JED description!
Raised post on Forum as suggested, and after two days, I am still waiting for a response.
RECOMMEND: No. I've now uninstalled it because there's no point if it doesn't work properly!
Why did you not check forum? We have a Topic for the extension there.
You've submitted a ticket on holiday. So we couldn't answer you soon.
Installed perfectly on J!3.1.5 and following the instructions to swap / show / hide 'login' and 'logout' buttons was easy.
Great Extension - Thank you!
I came across a problem and emailed Support, Rajesh was very quick to respond and very professional throughout.
It's transpired that the problem was with me not reading the options properly and nothing to do with the extension - boy, do I feel a wally!
Truly recommended extension!
Thank you very much for the review.
Very easy to install, setup, and connects seamlessly to your OSTicket installation.
Support is second to none, truly excellent! - I had a slight problem with layout so I raised a ticket. Alex replied within hours to offer a detailed solution including the file and field to amend.
I thoroughly recommend this extension!
