Looks like it is on it's way to be a good extension. Would be nice to be able to edit tooltip text in module BE, maybe a universal text field, and/or possiblity to turn tool tip off completely. Would also be nice to be able to turn off slide link requirement too. Not always needed. Option to load all images from a given folder would be the last request. I think with a few tweaks it could be a nice rotator with a lot of functionality.
I have listened to you and all the other opinions here and made a GoboSlidePro. Its available at joohopia.com.
I have all the features you wrote, except "random image” and choice the image folder. I will work on those when it’s possible. Thanks for all the wonderful input.
