Best embeded slider

Posted on 06 February 2018
Very smart and useful, but not responsive and it seems its out of devlopement.
Thats sad because there is no alternate with same functions
Ease of use
Very easy and lot of params
very sad no answer
I used this to: embeded sliders in different articles, very nice and easy. One code including pic path and it works
I really recommend it for people who want a tool which once configurated always works fine.
Ease of use
I love it. Everything is clearly documented, easy to do and it works out wonderful.
Wish every developper did it this way.
I used this to: Websites I want to have a good combination of text and some sample pictures.
I used this extension in 1.5 successfully. After migrating to Joomla 3.3.6, I downloaded the last update that supports 3.x but which is 2 years old. The gallery comes up readily but the first slide caption continues to show in the background. I posted into the Support forum twice and note that no support issues have been responded since 2012. The evaluations show recent implementations with similar problems as mine but no solutions.
So easy to use. Great configurability (Is that even a word)! Awesome results.
I have been using this plugin since 2010. It is truly simple and effective. Just upgraded my site from J1.5 to J3.3 and there were literally NO issues w/ this plugin. Easiest part of my upgrade!

Nice Work!

Works awesome! Just the tool I was looking for. Great work!
This is my first plugin. I hope that they all are as easy to use and configure as this one!

I recommend this plugin.

Just what I was looking for. Simple to install, working in a minute. Congrats! and a big thanks for making our life simpler (the joomla developers are super!) I use it in a site for nonprofit purposes trying to bring a bit more of God into the world. So, Thanks!
I have used the J1.5 version of this plugin before and found it just great. I now have the J2.5 version which, if possible, is even better though I have had a problem with getting the titles and captions to appear but am waiting to hear back from Andreas about this as it's almost certainly something I'm doing wrong.
