Brilliant Extension

August 12, 2008 by Kathleen Donaldson

I started using this extension on my site last winter with exceptional results.   Even for someone with my learn-as-needed skills, it's very user friendly.  I look forward to trying the new slide show feature. 



Great extension

February 4, 2009 by Denis Hoffmann

I am satisfied with this the extension. Easy to use. And makes creat sites a lot easier.

Only 2 small things to mention. If you want to use the PopUp dynamically (?id=<?php echo $id; ?>) you always have to fix it manually after you change something. Second, I dont need any title. It would be cool if the layer just can be in one color without title and without any borders :-)


The way things are suppose to work

Very intuitive extension - giving me the ability to create a much higher level of user experience. One of the best extensions (tools) that I've purchased and one that I use in almost every project I do.

I own most of your extensions and in almost every case, purchasing an extension from DMXzone has made my life easier and afforded me the ability to create complex functionality in far less time than it would take to hand code everything.
