very good

Ease of use

very easy to understand and to use


I just had one question and get a very good answer

Value for money

It worths!

I´ve been looking for a Background Slideshow, which could "catch" the last shown background image and then start with this image, when I jump to another side of my site. "Not possible" - I was told from different developers of background slideshow extensions. But support at Bow Themes replied: "We´ll develop it". And within a short while it was done. GREAT! On the top of all the great feature of the extension, which is easy to use!

I have bought this module quite a while ago for a client who wanted a slideshow for his comany website and it was a pleasure to work with this extension and the options are andless.

Now my client had a little problem updating his Joomla installation because the slideshow didn't work anymore.

I contactd Bow Themes and a very freindly and competent lady helped me immediately in a kind and professional way.

In no time I could send the new version of the BT Background Slideshow to my client and we are all happy again :)

This company is very professional and their extensions are just wonderful.

I recommend Bow Themas and their products to everyone who needs elegant and comfortable solutions.

Excellent extension!

The is the only background slide show we could find that didn't crash iPhone or iPad Safari browsers when finger-pinching zoom-in zoom-outs.

It also seems to run much smoother and faster than the others.

I was limited by other slide-show extensions only allowing a certain number of images. This extension allows you to point to image directories local or remote.

Thanks for an excellent extension!


Good extension, great support

I had some trouble with compatibility with third-party extension. А problem was solved in a few hours with support.

Thanks! Good job! Good luck!

Couldn't ask for anything more from a cool extension! Quite a bit of customization possible for many variations.

Had one adjustment I needed and received fast and detailed support.


Excellent support

Very useful extension with many setting. I had some problem with my template and seller give to me and excellent support.

If you're looking to provide a high end product for your client or simply create a site that sets you apart, you'll want to use this extension.

It downloaded and installed flawlessly in just a couple of minutes, working out of the box.

I had one snaffu which my tired mind produced, and was provided with excellent, immediate support. They truly went above and beyond to help me.

Will be getting other extensions soon.

This is one of the best extensions there is because of its flexibility and features. Using my previous background slideshow was causing site speed problems on my site because the images in the slideshow were large and were hosted on my site. This slideshow gives you the option to use your images hosted on Flickr or Picassa - how awesome is that!

The one thing I definitely have to commend is the support. I had some issues getting the module to work on my site because of other jQuery scripts that were running as well, support helped me resolved them all and promised to resolve the issue and they did. It took a little longer to resolve the issue that I had first thought but they stuck with it and did not quit.

Major Kudos!


This Extension is almost close to perfect,

-installation was easy and works great!

-support was good

but ideally some major functions are missing,
