NivoSlider

I used NivoSlider and used jQuery components indvidualy prior to my purchase of this extension from DMXzone. Your version makes life a lot simpler and is easy to configure. I am very satisfied with this application and highly recommend it.

Keep up the fanastic work

On first impression I like DMXzone Nivo Slider but I am still exploring all the features of same. My experience so far has been that it is very easy to use, easy to edit afterwards and does exactly what it says on the tin! but then that applies to all your extensions that I have tried so far.What I really like is that the fact that it works on smart phones.

Just the ticket

I was looking for a 'Flash' style image transition plugin for DW and found this. It's clean and simple to use, and the effects are superb. Well done chaps.

Impressed!

There are quite some features that make the Nivo Slider worth its offer. But what I think makes it a very handy tool is its ease of integrating images dynamically stored in a database system. So you can just design an interface for your designers to upload and edit images they want as part of a set of slides and jiffy it is implemented!
