Banner did not display in any position. Though when it was placed in the footer space was reserved but no other indication of anything attempting to display.
Overall impression was good feature set but needs work for OOTB functionality. Not in the mood to sign up for another forum.
1.6.0, 1and1 hosting, nothing fancy installed
Sorry you didn't have a good experience with FlexBanner, we're still working on the 1.6 version which is a beta. If you aren't prepared to engage in a forum about the product perhaps a beta version of a component really isn't for you.
