Thank you for your review. The extension works "Exactly" what we say and don't have other features that anybody might expect. We would have tried to improve it if you would have clearly mentioned about what you really expected.
However, be aware that the module is currently not compatible with K2 because it does not recognise K2 categories.
My Config = Joomla 1.5.24 + K2 2.5
There is however a work-around - if are using K2 this means you have to:
1. Create core Joomla sections and categories - the module only feeds articles from categories ... i.e. you cannot select the articles you want there - well except by unpublishing those you don't
2. Create core Joomla articles with the content you want to display - i.e. not K2 "items"
3. Then these will be published in the module
I have submitted these observations to the support team who told me they will work on a proper fix to this issue.
But I must say the support team were very responsive to my questions on this - so full marks there.
I must also note that something missing from the rather poor documentation provided is the need to - if you want to use the module more than once - after install, go to Extensions/Module Manager and create a copy of the module ... and enable it and then rename it to the specific purpose. That way you have the original module available for another copy and use.
Using their tech support chat box, I contacted them minutes after purchasing the extension. I got immediate assistance from the support team, and they actually helped me to set up the extension within my website. I wanted to show the popups upon click within articles and they showed me how to do it.
I was very impressed with their friendly and super fast support!
