The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

For a free extension, Hikashop comes absolutely packed with features. Support is excellent - I've had to get in touch on more than one occasion - sometimes because I haven't properly read the inline help. Even then when the answer was clear, there has been no feeling that the developer could not be bothered to answer.

I played about with the free version for a few months, but finally decided that the best way to say 'Thanks' to the Hikashop team was to purchase a commercial licence.

It was a small price to pay for the help I have received. Well done guys, and judging from some of the other reviews here, I'm not alone in wanting to say a big thank you!

This was my first choice for my site, downloaded installed and worked great - with a couple of e-mails to and from the developer. (Check the FAQ - I should have done!)

I had a glitch when I then installed 8 instances on my site. While waiting for the developer to reply to my support request, I had a look at a few other slideshow extensions, thinking if the glitch couldn't be fixed, I would use one of them.

Boy, am I glad that ShowPlus was my first choice. And even happier that the glitch was sorted. (Turns out it was a problem with my server, not ShowPlus - developer found this out for me!)

Seems to me that ShowPlus is the simplest, most configurable slideshow extension out there. And support is quite frankly, exceptional. Don't forget though, that the developer has a life, and might take overnight to reply!

Might seem a bit daunting at first (especially to a Joomla! newcomer like me) but it's well worth persevering. Extremely customiseable, and it works. Download requires registration - just do it - you'll have access to the forum, and superb support from Alex, the developer. Thank you!
