News Display, Articles Display

NEW: Now compatible with Joomla 3.x!

AJAX Scroller is a Web 2.0 module for Joomla! that displays and scrolls your site's Articles, Images, Banners, RSS feeds, Tweets, Virtuemart products, K2 items or other content, loaded dynamically using different animation effects.

It can be used to present newsflashes, testimonials, latest news, banners, remote RSS feeds, Twitter updates, web-shop products or any other content with autoplay or manual scrolling in a smart and smooth way.

AJAX Scroller module for Joomla is highly optimized, hundreds of articles can be displayed and scrolled without any additional load on your website. It uses AJAX technology to pre-load the next article in advance so it's ready for scroll without delay. Once all items are fetched the remote requests stop while scrolling can continue. The whole process is performed without page refresh, quickly, smoothly and user friendly.

You can even duplicate the module and show different slideshows on same page. It can be configured to display several articles at once and remember the last viewed item on page refresh. AJAX Scroller is simple to install and use but powerful in terms of configurations.

Value for money
Rapporto qualità / prezzo eccellente
I used this to: Usato per sito commerciale su template Yootheme. Perfettamente compatibile, lo comprerò anche per altri domini.
Easy to set up, real time refresh my twitter feeds. Lack of language support but then it is easy to overcome. I wanted to remove some part of the text added to the feed. Looked everywhere in files and couldn't find it. So i requested code to change to remove the twitter link and got quick respond. Emir went to my ftp and uncommented the code himself. Great support !!!
Overall, I like this extension. It works and is pretty easy to use, but there are a few limitations that you may want to be aware of before you purchase.

The thing that most annoyed me about this is that there is an option to display your slides in a random order, but this doesn't work. On the support forum, they say that the random order is different on different computers, but this is not what most people want when they want a random order. I wanted the order to be different each time you visit the site, but that can't be done with this extension.

Also, be aware that you have to set a specific size for the scroller (in pixels). You can't have it adjust to fit any screen, even if you edit the css. I also don't think there is that much you can do to change the look of the scroller without editing the css.

All that said, this extension has still been useful for me. I'm no expert and have only used it on one site, but I just thought it might help someone out to know these things before purchasing.
I've used Ajax Scroller for some time on older J1.5 sites. The recent Twitter API update meant my site stopped working. The developer not only released a fix real fast to address the Twitter API change, he also did a (legacy) J1.5 fix as well! Who said support was dead? Top marks!
I use this module for streaming a twitter feed on my website. When it broke yesterday... as many streaming twitter feeds did with the the move to Twitter api v1.1.. the developer had a new version ready before I knew that it was broken.

Many modules and components do what they advertise... just as this one does. Most modules are are as easy to set up, like this.

What sets this module apart is the superior support.

After installing the new version, it didn't work correctly. I fired an email to the developer. He responded in two minutes. One can't always expect that kind of help... but it deserves a note on the JED when it happens!

Thank you... and it turned out the problem was a conflict with my .htaccess file, nothing even to do with the module itself.
I'm using the scroller as a one-line horizontal ticker from a couple of articles for my JomSocial site. Works just as I need it to, and was easy to install. Changing the CSS for my custom height and width worked well, because I could use Firebug Inspect in Mozilla to test the CSS changes before I made the final changes.
Easy installation, nice config options and cool transition effects. Thumbs up for the fact that it memorizes the last item it was showing even after page refresh!
AJAX Scroller met my requirements immediately, and the author responded immediately to my comments (even at the weekend!)

I shall investigate other options to see if more of my requirements can be met.

Very satisfied

This is an excellent extension but there are allot of them here.

What made me buy more extensions from this developer was that he were really quick on returning my emails and proved to be very willing to meet my requests.

module not working

Posted on 25 October 2012
the module does not work and the assistance offered no solution to the problem.
Owner's reply: The module does work as many other users can testify. However, sometimes you need to have basic knowledge of CSS to adjust the look according to your needs.
