One of my biggest pet peeves is listening to other programmers claim that a particular piece of source code simply “does not work” when they are seeking debugging help.
Claiming something “does not work” isn’t what one programmer says to another programmer. The phrase “does not work” should be reserved for when you’re taking your car to the mechanic and you don’t have a clue what’s wrong with it. If you’re telling a programmer that a particular piece of source code simply “does not work”, then you should no longer consider yourself a programmer.
Frontpage Slideshow version 4 is coming out in October and it is the first Joomla slideshow extension to support mixed static (image/text) & video content.
Frontpage Slideshow v3.11 is released today addressing an issue related to image selection with K2 items as slide source.
Today we're issuing updates on all our Joomla template Quickstart Packages to support the latest Joomla 3.8.11 release. The updates cover all our commercial as well as our 2 free Joomla templates (Takai & nuModusVersus - which by the way have reached 150,000 downloads).
Additionally, all demo sites have been updated as well.
You know what they say about good wine - it takes time to mature. Although we've been providing responsive layouts through our helpdesk system to customers for some time now, it took a little longer for us to decide andbundle them with the default slideshow templates as in most cases, customers were creating their own unique (& responsive) styles, exactly because Frontpage Slideshow is probably one of the easiest slideshow systems to style (pure CSS goodness).
It's highly recommended that you update Simple Image Gallery to v3.6.0.
It's highly recommended that you update Simple Image Gallery to v3.5.0, especially if your Joomla site is running on PHP 7.
It's highly recommended that you update AllVideos to v4.8.0, especially if your Joomla site is running on PHP 7 and/or using HTTPS by default.
