I am been using this module for some years now. I would like to upgrade to the 1.0.5 version but I can't find it anyware.

For the rest is this a very good module.

Thank you for you kind comments regarding SFS. You can download the current version (1.0.5) by clicking onto either the Joomla 2.5 or Joomla 3 logos next to the word, Download. I just checked and both Joomla logos are pointing to the v1.0.5 release.

I uploaded the module and it appeared in my module list. I published it and set it to appear on the front page only. Sadly that's as far as I got.

The problem is that the general options don't appear so I can't configure the module any further and as such I can't use it.

Nice idea and looks good on your site though.

(Joomla 2.5)

SFS was easy to set up and use. Works great with Joomla 2.5. Make sure you set an interval. I left it out by mistake and it caused the slideshow to not display.

Product support via email by Mr. Hathaway was fast. He responded to my question within minutes. I was very surprised since this a non-commercial product!

agpollock, thank you for your kind comments and I'm glad we were able to assist in a timely manor. Your issue prompted me to make a slight code adjustment so others won't experience this. Thanks again!

I installed and was looking forward to the ease - all I get is "Loading script and Flickr images" - nothing shows up. No documentation to help resolve.

Tylee23, I'm able to get SFS to work on both J1.5 & J2.5 without any issues. Make 100% sure you are using a 'correct' Joomla version (J1.5 or J1.7+) and a current Flickr photoset ID#. Finally, make sure this module is published and assigned to a working module position and menu item. If your still having issues please go to my website and send me an email and we'll get it working in no time!

Love this module, did just about everything I needed for it to do. Is there any way I can change the number of images to more than 10?

Thanks for a great add!

sushant, Thank you for your kind words and for giving me the time to correct/fix the code error and to add a new feature. It's comments like yours and from others that makes SFS simple and fun to use and program for!

This is an elegant solution for feeding Flickr displays to your joomla? website. I've installed multiple modules on various sites and it works a treat. Easy to install and configure. My only problem with it is that it seems a little difficult to place in an exact position on a page. Also, I don't seem to be able to stack one on top of the other. Nevertheless, it's a nice tool for a simple gallery and reduces double handling.

I'll keep a keen eye open for upgrades.

rsjb, Thank you for your kind review and suggestions. They are most welcomed. I just released a new version (1.0.1) to correct a flaw in the jQuery script. Download is now available!
