The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

I had this installed and up and running in all of 5 minutes, and was delighted. The stylesheets (yes, plural) were easy to modify and it looked great.

unfortunately I didn't have any good experiences from then on. I had a problem with another module, and when I delved deeper, I found that this module was the problem. jQuery is packaged along with this, which adds an unnecessary weight to the module (seeing as mootools comes bundled with joomla.) The problem was that for each image I was loading into my slideshow, the module was loading a full version of my page instead of just the one image. I noticed this if I specified the wrong path, instead of my image, I got a partially transparent version of my page.

Also, the module itself is written by artetics, but the jQuery slideshow is taken from somewhere else. Overall, not impressed.

Thank you for your review.

The module has option to disable jQuery load - this way it will use jQuery library already included on the page.
