The Maintainers

The module is developed and maintained by Philip Blaauw.

I like to thank all who found bugs, made suggestions for improvements, made issues to improve the documentation and who made reviews of the module.

Support and development of the module is made possible by selling new custom theme layouts and by paid services like installations and customizations of slideshow solutions.

Paid services
For paid installation, configurations and customization of the module and slideshow themes, you can contact me via my contact form. I also do a wide range of drupal development, configurations and theming for Drupal sites.

Note:
There are several other Drupal slideshow / carousel / rotator / tab modules available. Have a look at this comparison to find out what suits you best.
