News Show Pro GK4 is still available for download should you be using an earlier version of Joomla or require legacy support, and we will continue to provide technical support for it via our GitHub repository as normal.

doesn't work in 3.2

Posted on 04 January 2014

I wanted to try this extension, it looks promising. However it does not work in Joomla 3.2. You can install it, but that is as far as I got.

Owner's reply: Hi!

Many thanks for your comments. We've actually started rebuilding NSP from the ground up, so if you're after the latest, feature-rich version of NSP that's compatible with the newest Joomla releases you should download the main 'News Show Pro' release, available via our site (just follow the download link on this page).

News Show Pro GK4 is still available for download and we will continue to provide support for it via our GitHub repository, but the general News Show Pro release will be the main version.

My experience with all gavick items has ended the same - I felt like I was paying to be a beta tester with their versions of Joomla 3.x

Newspro was the greatest example of this. As soon as I'd find a way to fix one bug, I'd run into two more.

When I'd ask for help on the forums, I'd either get more questions than answers, or I'd get adnauseum requests for the URL of my site instead of possibilities of the error.

I do not wish to give my URLs. I've included screen shots and documented examples of what's happening, I should not need to give out my personal sites in order to get to the bottom.

Minus this, I'd have rated their products 5 stars.

As it stands, Fair is the best I can give.

Has potential but...

Unclear if the production version is V4 or V5? Also no instructions on how to upgrade, if in fact, that is necessary. So far - on a demo J3.1, I've found numerous inconsistencies (ie bugs) on V5. The forums are paid subscription only. Maybe for their non-commercial extensions developer should consider open-forums?

I found a bug in this module when using limit of word count. It allows additional images to flood into the display where thumbnails are supposed to display one image. I spent hours trying to figure this out. When I contacted developer, they closed my ticket and told me that I have to pay for support.

Owner's reply: Our ticket system is available only for the owners of the Developer Membership - other users get the AUTOMATIC information about this fact. That automatic message also contained an information that for the free products (like this module) users should use the issue section on the official Github repository: https://github.com/GavickPro/News-Show-Pro-GK5/issues

And the most important - reported problem wasn't a bug but a problem with the wrong module configuration.

Just what I need

Posted on 06 April 2013

This module is exactly what I needed, and pleasantly surprised by how detailed it has been made for non-commercial version.

One thing though, I am having problem applying "Portal Mode," as it does not show any contents whatsoever, where I would have absolute no trouble with "Normal Mode." Unfortunately, I could not find any solution in their forum. ("Use default CSS" to be enable didn't resolve the issue, neither.)

FAQ would have been nice, but I shouldn't ask too much. :-)

Very Flexible

Posted on 26 March 2013

Very good and flexible. We have also used it for a scrolling "Testimonial" module. My only complaint is that it does not take to custom HTML very well but overall we are satisfied.

I like this extension, one of the best to display news and individual articles.

thanks alot

Best of the best!

Posted on 26 January 2013

Thank you very much Gavick team! This is the best news showing module ever!

I have spent a week downloading, installing, testing, then uninstalling various news slideshows and extensions. This is the first one that worked correctly, does everything I need, and reads formatting correctly. I almost have to use free extensions because my site is on a non-profit budget. News Show Pro GK4 saved my site and my budget!
