It was easy to intall and configure and I didnt need to contact support or read the provided instruction manual to get it looking the way I wanted.
I downloaded this primarily to add a featured articles ticker to my homepage which it does very well but its also very versatile and im now using the module as a photo slideshow too.
My only gripe is with the navigation panel, if your trying to present a large number of articles in a small space and want user navigation the only option is numbered selection which takes up too much space, the option to have previous/next buttons instead would have been nice.
All in all its a superb component thats very versatile and easy to use. Highly recommended.
