If you would find even some time to add a nice Ken Burns effect to the large amount of nice transitions you have already, that would be great, as Ken Burns is different enough from other transitions to warrant adding one more - I think at least ;)
THANKS AGAIN, WELL DONE !
Thumbs up also for clean markup and fast response to feedback.
One thing I'm waiting for is basic alpha fade transition and hopefully it makes into next version (now using 1.2.5).
Best thing is that you can get pictures from several labaries, by typing the polders name.
I needed a new parameter in the module.
After a request in their FORUM they made 'Link' ...which is used as redirect link. Now i have the possibility to link the guests to a certin URL.
ARI Soft did try to add this functionality after I brought it to their attention but were unable to at the moment, and following on the excellent customer service they have already shown, refunded the cost of the extension when it became clear that it was not suitable for me.
If they do manage to sort the resizing problem, I'll be straight back as everything else about the extension is spot on. Until then, my search continues.
