I purchased two extensions prior to seeing the demo of 2JNewsSlider. I knew right away that this was the one I should have bought in the first place. Initially, I had some difficulty with the plugin Single Tag and Multi Tag. However, I was persistent with my questions and it was paid off. This is a great extension. I find that Multi Tag offers me the flexibility pick and choose articles from different categories and instances. Even though, I have to do extra work inserting articles, but it is handy later on if I want to exlude/include article, I can easily remove or modify the tag. It is simply outstanding.
