Perfect Extension for a Simple Location Map using OpenStreetMap instead of Google Maps


Posted on 29 June 2018
100
Functionality

100
Documentation
The comprehensive User Manual adequately explains the installation, configuration and administration of the extension.

Fast Loading and Responsive Slideshow


Posted on 17 June 2013
This slideshow module is perfect for a recent project because it is responsive, has unlimited images, linked images and image captions, and most of all (and not mentioned in the description), it only seems to load the first image when the page loads initially.



This means you can include as many images as you want in the slideshow without affecting the initial page load speed.



Thanks very much!
