The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

This extension is excellent: as soon as it's installed and the plugin is activated, it works smoothly with no additional configuration necessary. I use mootools menus and some article slider modules, and this doesn't seem to conflict with anything, which is also a nice benefit. I use JCE as my wysiwyg editor, and I was glad to see that no extension specific plugin was required.

It would be nice if there were a support forum.

I'm using this extension in a site for a State Park, in which I'm using SobiPro as a directory for the park. Unfortunately, when I add entries via the Sobi editor (also uses JCE wysiwyg), Mavik Thumbs doesn't work. I saw the post below about editing the Joomla 1.5 template to get it to work in categories, and I assume this is the same sort of issue.

I downloaded this and installed it in a matter of minutes, and it works exactly as expected. I haven't done any real modification yet, but I was very pleased at how it looks right out of the box.

It would be nice if there were a parameter in the module control panel to assign whether the menu items in a horizontal layout align to the right or left.

Keep up the good work!

Simple Picture Slideshow
I was looking for a nice slideshow that wasn't just another module, but something that would allow me to quickly create slideshows for article content. This little plugin has been perfect for it! Installed quickly and flawlessly and was running in a matter of minutes.

I did make my own navigation buttons, since the defaults were not quite in line with my site, but that's no big deal.

In the future, it might be nice to have the option to have navigation options appear on hover rather than taking up extra space under it.

Thanks Andreas, a big help and time saver for me!
