The best I could find



Posted on 07 December 2017
Functionality
Lots of functionality, even the free version is very complete. Is able to deal with a lots of module instances on one page.
Ease of use
Very straightforward, lots of settings and customization. I used my own CCS to style everything to my customers' needs.
Support
Never needed any support so can't really comment on this. Paid customers are able to use the forum for help so it seems well supported.
Documentation
I can only comment on the tooltips inside the module editor and they seem clear enough for me.
I used this to: Local News Website in the Netherlands called Assenstad
Owner's reply: Thank you Stefan for the review!
Functionality
Adds modern image and control over latest / newest articles - a lot of options to customize.
Ease of use
Play around a little bit and you learn everything
I used this to: Show the latest and related articles, both on com_content and other pages
Aiming to reduce my bounce rate and increase the time new visitors visit my site.
Note that if you use images it will slightly slow down site due to images. Thumbnails are large according to page insights
Owner's reply: Thank you for the review! I appreciate it.
Thumbnail sizes can be tweaked by using the picture quality parameters.
The heavier the original images, the heavier the thumbnails. If originals are light in weight, thumbnails tend to be lighter also.
Available soon: additional free plugins that will drastically reduce the image sizes by using external services available on the Internet.
Functionality
Sehr gute Funktionalität. Sehr viele Einstellmöglichkeiten!

Functionality
There is nothing else like this available and what it does is amazing. There was another similar module but it has vanished.
Ease of use
This has many options so it takes a little time to go through it but once you do it's fine.
Support
Possibly the best I have experienced since using Joomla since 2009!
Documentation
Just fine
I used this to: Adding custom news for my sites that the default Joomla latest news can't come close to.
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for the review, I really appreciate it!

What a gem



Posted on 21 November 2013
At first it looked a bit complex with all the settings. The extension installed with no issues, it was very easy and straight forward to setup and it worked first time. It has complimented my site perfectly and looks really good - Great work Olivier in the design and user documentation which has been read but was not needed to make the module work. This extension is certainly recommended.
Owner's reply: Well thank you for this review, I do appreciate it. I know that having lots of options can be overwhelming but it is needed to make the module as flexible as possible and to allow multiple configurations. Thank you again.

Very Nice Module

Looks really nice on the page, easy to use, very flexible. Couldn't ask for more.
