A very polished plugin to include highslide JS in Joomla. All the highslide options seem to be configurable from the configuration page. All the options have useful tool tips. Also it has a nice feature to have the css style editor in the configuration page. So you don't have to dig through the file system to find the style sheet if you want to make any style changes. It integrates very nicely with the JCE editor, including toolbar buttons for embedding images. I tried a couple of other highslide components but always seemed to have to enter raw html code to get it to work. This plugin just works, a coupe of button clicks includes the thumbnail and main image. Leave it at that or customise each image as required. The component and plugins installed cleanly. For my set up the plugin zip file wouldn't install directly, but unpacking the file and installing from a directory worked fine. The support from the author is also first rate.

A nice simple app that just works as advertised. You need to read the installation instructions though as it's a 2 part installation. However it's simple to follow the instructions. Install the plugin first then enable it. Then install the component.

It worked straight out of the box, creating an attachment link with the file size next to it.

I think I'm missing something as I can't see how to include attachments in the backend when I'm editing articles. However it works well so I can see me creating a new article in the backend then switching to the front end to add the attachements because it is so simple.

Many thanks Jonathan for a nice clean extension.

The ability to add attachments in the back end was added in version 0.9.5 Beta.
