After searching for hours over the past several days for the "perfect slideshow module" to satisfy a client request, I finally found it. I have a folder of 37 slideshow modules that I downloaded, configured and then uninstalled. I was just about to give up and call it a night but decided to give one more a try.
SlideshowCK is exactly what my client wanted on his site. It was easy to install and configure and did EXACTLY what I needed it to do. I am now his hero.
