    Hi Kamil. I've installed the Slider on my Moodle 2.9.1 site. It works fine on the side blocks. Any chance you can get it to work as a header slider slideshow, spanning the full width of the webpage?

    Hi. The plugin is very versatil, simple and useful. Thank you. But I just have a question: If I configure the plugin as a teacher, and then another teacher wants to reconfigure it (add another image, for instances) he is not able to edit the pictures because filemanager does not show the pictures the first teacher uploaded... Is this supposed to happen? Moodle 2.7

    Nice and simple plugin. Would it be possible to add option for heading and text fields too? So this could be used more versatile e.g. in dashboard page.

    Hey guys!
    Is the download link working properly? I click on that and get error 404. I've tried on different browsers but it's the same.

    The slider block is available to add to courses, but not the front page or dashboard. Is there any way to add the slider block to the front page or dashboard?

    Like the idea, but when I upload images nothing is shown. Any thoughts??? Also I have another slider that I am trying to edit, that was created by another teacher and can not see her images.
