Overview

Flexslider Responsive Banner Slider

Description

Flexslider by Solide Webservices is one of the few fully responsive image slider for Magento that can be easily managed from the backend from Magento. It allows you to add unlimited responsive image and video (Youtube and Vimeo) sliders on any page, category, product page or static block of your choice. This extension uses one of the best responsive slider in the market, the Flexslider2® from WooThemes which is available under the GPLv2 license.

Latest Version

2014-07-23: V1.8.0 - Major release

  • New: deliver a smaller image based on the viewport (makes use of the 'Picturefill' library, a javascript polyfill implementation based on the future HTML5 picture element - if you are upgrading and have a lot of existing slides please allow the upgrade script to run to create the smaller sized images)
  • New: captions now also available for video slides
  • New: loaderbar now also available for video slides
  • Improvement: frontend template code clean up and clean up of the function for conditional javascript loading Improvement: only load hoverIntent javascript and code when a slider with overlay navigation has been added
  • Improvement: only load video javascript if a video slide has been added
  • Improvement: replaced the color picker with a more light-weight one that also allows RGBA input and dropped the separate opacity fields (you will need to reconfigure any opacity on upgrade)
  • Fix: fixed a corner case scenario where a slider group gets added to all product pages

Notes

  • This extension uses the jQuery library. If you have other extension installed that also come with jQuery you can choose to load a jQuery version that does not cause a conflict between the extensions or even not to load jQuery with the Flexslider extension to avoid conflicts between extensions. If this does not solve the issue please refer to the included documentation.
  • Please logout and login again in the admin backend after installing the extension. This is needed to avoid permission issues with the extension resulting in a 404 error. This is a common Magento problem.

We do not offer refunds as we usually help our clients with the installation and provide suggestions for modifications in case any are needed. If for some reason the extension will not work on your installation even with our support you will receive a full refund. Support questions are usually answered within 2 working days.

Flexslider Responsive Banner Slider 5 5 15 15
Easy to use and fully featured After only 20mins, i'm up and running with this slider. A very good investment, compared to the free sliders out there. July 9, 2014
Absolutely Stunning Being a developer it takes a lot for me to be impressed with the ease of use and power of a tool. And to pay for something rather than code it myself is unusual, however this image slider is brilliant. Using MaxCDN this plugin has no issues whatsoever and works great with RWD default and Ultimo themes so this has been really well thought out. Nothing but praise. Cheers June 27, 2014
One of the best In my opinion this is one of the best responsive slider extension. It works perfekty, easy to install and easy to handle in the admin panel. I had some problems with the combination of the extension with my theme. But the developer quickly helped my out of trouble. Thank you Jelger for this great extension and your outstanding support! March 22, 2014
Superb support We purchased this extension for our new magento site. We found this extension to be much better than the free banner extension and the options are extensive. We had a few issues but the developer was on hand to help resolve any problems our custom theme posed. Definitely a must have extension. March 4, 2014
Great support! Excellent extension, but what i really liked is the support! Super fast, kind and accurate. Can't ask for more! February 26, 2014
Excellent Slider & great support really good slider which works really great on the backend, lots of features & is easy for clients to use. Really easy to install. I had a small glitch with it integrating with my theme but the developer got back to me really quickly & sorted it out. October 30, 2013

A fantastic extension at a great price! We are so pleased with this great slider extension, it really enhances the look on our site. The slider is smooth and effective with a bunch of settings available. Easy to use, install and implement. This is all backed up by a superb and speedy support team. Thank you very much for developing a great extension; well done Solide Webservices. June 28, 2013
Great extension, great support Great extension and great support team. I had a incompatibility issue with the JS that came with my theme, and the support team solved it quickly. I'm using it as brand scroller, and is working perfectly. June 17, 2013

Wondering if this will work as a full width slider, or if it could be modified as such? In other words extend outside of div.main

Answer: 
Yes it will. You could achive this by placing the Flexslider in a container that has full width of itself or straight under the body tag using the CMS or template tag or an XML Layout update. The Flexslider will take up the maximum available space which in this case would be the full page width.

Kind regards,
Solide Webservices
