Nice News Box
Installed on Mage 1.9 - had a couple issues with the image feature. Generated an error (unsupported image type) if an image wasn't included with the news post. For now I'm making sure to include an image with each post. Also tweaked the css to get the news window to use the left margin better. Overall, I think it's fine, and very useful. A few minor adjustments and this would be great.

EXCELLENT - and works with multistore on 1.81 CE
I've been using this extension for about 6 months now and I love it. I just installed a second store and read a review here that stated that it does not work with multistore setups. However I found out how to get it to work (in case anyone else needs to do this#.. just make sure you copy the SAM review related folders from default/default/template and place into the new stores theme #i.e. default/newTheme/template/).
All works great!
Thanks for this great extension!

Not workable for multistores
Upon installation it stopped functionality of switch from one language to another as well as currency switching and also the account options all freeze.

needed to show al of my reviews on a single cms page and this does that without any setup. just create a page with the url key: reviews
and this automatically shows them on that page

Works with v1.8.1 - Great addon!
Works with v1.8.1 and custom theme. Just needed to change the default folder to the custom one.
In my particular case the java script was interfering with my custom template so i had to delete all the .js files except samreview.js That took away the scrolling functions but i was after the slide show look, and that works.
The only problem i am having with it right now is i can't get it to show more than 2 reviews. I have the setting in the admin to show 5.
I also tried adjusting the height in the css and tried adjusting the loop count in the .js file but still cannot get it to show more than 2 reviews at a time.
If anyone knows how to fix this, i would appreciate it if you replied here. Thanks alot and many thanks to the author for giving us the great addon for free!
