Would highly recommend just taking the time to write a full component on your own and then cut and paste, easier to change a few files in the correct location then to search for oddities.
See great potential over time, and will submit to author the list of glitches I run into.
All fair points. I'm working on these issues. I inherited this project when I updated the 1.0 version and it has needed a lot of work just to get where we are. The banner upload issue is a legacy of starting from the core Joomla banner manager which works that way!
I do want to improve the ID selection in the module as soon as possible because it causes users a lot of grief. I've also had other requests to improve the content filtering to use components and other useful selections which I will be looking at shortly.
Thank you for the feedback. All these improvements will follow when paying work doesn't get in the way too much!
