No Permission

Posted on 25 May 2016
I cant find option button and I cant set permission to user groups.
Ease of use
It is simple and easy to user
I used the free version and it already has all what's needed to make simple slider : image + legend kind.
Ease of use
The backend is simple and straight forward : create slider, add slides, create a module to put your slider, set it up... it's done
I had a problem after my migration from 2.5 to 3.4 ; the support team answered within hours and the next day the problem was solved...
I used this to: Main big slider on the top of the page
I spent a chunk the day trying different sliders on our sites that will host slide decks that look like whiteboard or PowerPoint presentations. For our application we needed something that the user could manually scroll through the slides at their own speed as they read them. Overall this was probably the better of the free ones I loaded on our test sites.

First it installed flawlessly without issue. Obvously that's a biggie!

Secondly, it has the Module side and Component side which allows you to create different shows for different pages. Another plus.

Next, it's FREE. We all love free.

Sadly we couldn't use it for the following two reasons. Our slides are on clear/transparent backgrounds which is what we really wanted, but it wasn't a deal breaker. Unfortunately this program turns transparent backgrounds to a white opaque background. That was ok, as a white background was our second choice. This will make the presentations look like they're on a whiteboard. Unfortunately our sliders must be set so the reader can manually advance the slides as they read them. On this slider, you can't see the nav buttons if the slide has a white background. They blend in, so you just have to know that they're there.

Had it not been for that issue with the buttons, this would have worked well. I liked how it was laid out though, so we bought their Pro version. It won't support clear slides either, but other than that so far we love it. It's was only $12 and well worth it. I'll rate it in the next few day.

If nav buttons aren't an issue for you, this may be a good choice.
Simple, intuitive, fast loading slider. Thank you!

Crashed my entire site

Posted on 13 September 2013
I installed this module, published it, and my site crashed. I know it was this extension as when I unpublished it, the site came back. I have now uninstalled the extension, but my site is EXTREMELY SLOW. Will probably have to re-build from scratch. Not sure what happened, but it seems to be directly related to this extension. Very disappointed...
Owner's reply: Hi Friend,
I am sorry but your assumption is incorrect since when you uninstall a extension all its files are deleted. This is how Joomla works. If you would have opened a ticket we could have told you this, but instead you are trying to damage our business buy giving us a bad review for now reason.

Great support

It's a fantiastic extension. Simple to install and use!
This is the type of extension that many many joomla sites need, and many joomla extension makers need to achieve; EASY to install, EASY to administer! Keep in mind that I've only had it a week, but based on what i've seen, the programmer must have had people use it a lot before it was released. Sophisticated like expensive software. GREAT JOB!
After upgrading several sites, I needed a new slideshow extension because the one I was using wasn't 2.5/3.0 compatible.

Installed this one on two sites so far, and it couldn't be easier. Installing and configuring is simple and straightforward. Had a problem with image jump on one site. Contacted the developer, and got a quick reply (less than 10 hours!) with a simple fix. Fantastic support for a free product!

Tested on IE, FF, Chrome, Safari, and Opera on Windows 7, Chrome on Android 4.0.4 phone, Chrome and FF on Android 4.2.2 tablet, FF and Safari on Mac OSX Mountain Lion, and Safari on iPad OS6. The slideshow displays consistently on all devices. If you're having a problem with the display, I can confidently say it's your css, and not this extension.

I highly recommend this component and module. You won't be disappointed.

The best of the freebie sliders that I have tried by a long shot. Well organised, flexible, and looks great. You add each slide individually which sounds cumbersome, but is easily the best way of achieving the results you want. And actually, it took less time to set up than many of the other sliders on offer that are 'simpler' in design.

There is a pro version which I haven't tried but if it's better than this free one then it's well worth the 12pounds they're asking!
