Amazing! Style position by position, row by row, or wrapper by wrapper. Many add-ons such as parallax bgs, center content vertically.

Ease of use

Don't be fooled by it's power - it's easy and intuitive to use.

Support

Best in JED. Ced is not only a great developer, but listens to his customers. He has adopted some of my (non-programmer) suggestions enev!

Documentation

Solid documentation, though it's really not needed as the component is so intuitive.

5 thumbs up!

I used this to: EVERY site! One of the first components I install every time.

Average/good, but could be improved on. I'd share my thoughts with them, but I'm not paying to do so - see Support below.

Ease of use

Easy enough, but lack BASIC features. No return to the main page (as noted below). I added my own, but I shouldn't have to.

Documentation

Adequate for the simple component.

I used this to: This has real promise if only the devs would stop going for the almighty dollar and encourage feedback. Sure it's free, but that doesn't mean it needs to be lacking user-suggested updates. I'd recommend looking at this component, but expert ZERO backup.

Rudimentary and inadequate. Important features not documented.

I used this to: I WAS going to use it for a real estate site. It looked really good in the demo - just not sure how to get it to that point.

An expensive mistake

Tried the free version and it seemed stable. Pro version is not! Bugs and conflicts. They fixed the broken slider and broke the list layout.

Ease of use

Very easy to use

I used this to: A "Before & After" portfolio. It would never work properly. Broken slider (JS issue) fixed, which broke the list layout. They fixed that and it rebroke the slider. Then they failed to respond to a support request for 4-5 days (still waiting). This is a great concept poorly built.

The extension is pretty powerful but lacks styling. So typical of many devs - make a good product but lack any clue how to make it look good

Ease of use

Fairly simple. However, Geolocation fails. Can't find an address in California.

I used this to: Practice uninstalling a component from a Joomla website. Alas, on uninstalling it destroyed the website and I had to rebuild it. ALl I got after uninstalling was a white screen.

Not sure what the previous reviewer was talking about. This is super easy to use and NO dox required.

I used this to: Their demo went to a 404, an issue which was reported to them on their forum over 8 months ago. So, in addition to not being able to see a demo of the product, seeing an 8 month old + post about this problem going unanswered filled me with ZERO confidence.Maybe it's good, but...

Loads of features and easy enough to customize

Ease of use

It has a learning curve. This is a powerful component, not an image slider. There is set it up, then data entry. But fairly simple

Support

Fantastic. They don't nickle & dime if you ask for help to do a mod (yourself). Time delay is a little frustrating, but otherwise great.

Documentation

Extensive, with a good forum and great support via tickets.

I used this to: Single residence rental. Component can handle hotels so a bit of dumbing down was required (refers to "rooms" rather than "house" for instance). But pretty easy setup and implementation. Looks good on the frontend, though I had a few suggestions to make it more user-friendly.

Overall it's a powerful component.

Ease of use

It's quite a complex component and understanding its flow and setup took some time.

Good support. Ticketing system was no ability to edit previous posts so I ended up writing a second post to say I'd found the answer.
