In typical fashion we ran around pulling out our hair and crying like little girls. :( The entire site had been done in a responsive framework, and anyone who has tried to make 15-20 tables responsive by hand will sympathize with our tear soaked faces.
Then we stumbled into this extension. Let me tell you...i is an ABSOLUTE GEM! Simple to use, and better yet responsive!
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE! Now our client has the ability to simply FTP an excel spread sheet (needs to be named the same),Update 1 simple parameter, and BADA BOOM! The tables update dynamically! Because you assign a preset; set of CSS rules (which dont worry they have a generator for that all you non-CSS folks) and you can stop worrying about Styling issues.
We had one small problem where the application was not reading the alt+enter breaks used in our excel xml files. within 48 hours we received an email letting us know that they updated the component to fix the issue. Thats right....no Jimmy rigging or all you need to do it: (input a ridiculous string of code only Mark Zuckerberg could understand)
I just cant say enough about this component. That said I need to stop typing....I have tables to place.
I have been developing high profile sites for some time, and sliders are a reality of web design, and used to be one of the bigger time hogs. This eliminates all of that.
Do yourself a favor and use this slider. It truly should be a community choice month in and out!
I was extremely disappointed to find that there was just no good free options.
Enter Twitter Widget!
I had it running in no time. It worked perfectly in my responsive design, and was easy to style to my tastes!
Cant say enough....great job on this module!
