You can make a single show run from the Module alone, but I worried about what else might be wrong, and our site is too important to risk it. All the other sliders we loaded installed and worked as advertised. It was just a matter of choosing which one had the best attributes.
They don't respond to tickets on the weekend, so we had to move on. Had it installed correctly we may have stayed with this one over a paid version we finally settled on.
Hello, sorry to hear you were unable to run DJ-ImageSlider. This is not a known problem as you can see. Probably this is related to your setup as you mentioned. Please make sure you're using most recent version of Joomla and let us know.
First it installed flawlessly without issue. Obvously that's a biggie!
Secondly, it has the Module side and Component side which allows you to create different shows for different pages. Another plus.
Next, it's FREE. We all love free.
Sadly we couldn't use it for the following two reasons. Our slides are on clear/transparent backgrounds which is what we really wanted, but it wasn't a deal breaker. Unfortunately this program turns transparent backgrounds to a white opaque background. That was ok, as a white background was our second choice. This will make the presentations look like they're on a whiteboard. Unfortunately our sliders must be set so the reader can manually advance the slides as they read them. On this slider, you can't see the nav buttons if the slide has a white background. They blend in, so you just have to know that they're there.
Had it not been for that issue with the buttons, this would have worked well. I liked how it was laid out though, so we bought their Pro version. It won't support clear slides either, but other than that so far we love it. It's was only $12 and well worth it. I'll rate it in the next few day.
If nav buttons aren't an issue for you, this may be a good choice.
