    Hello all,
    I am having the similar problem. I can't even see the first image. I installed the cyclone slider and activated it. then i added the images in the slider and after getting the slider ID, which was test , pasted in the main web page.
    But during Preview I cannot see any image. Are there any additional steps I need to do? I did not indulge myself in any php coding.
    Can somebody kindly guide me on that?

    Thanks

    hello hashirkk,

    No additional steps are needed to run cyclone slider. Do you have a link to your site? Try to check if there are javascript errors. Thats the most common cause of the problem.

    regards

    Hello Kosinix,
    Thanks for the prompt reply. well I had few other plugins and I deleted. I am just testing all the stuff on the local computer and have not currently move the stuff to the production site.
    For the testing purposes, I am just using the standard theme which comes with wordpress Twenty Eleven.
    But even after adding the images on the image folder and adding them through slide adder, I can only see the standard image comes with the theme and not the slider.
    I am not a php guy , so can you please guide me if I have to add some code in header.php to make the slider active and remove the standard image.
    Also, how can I verify if there are java related errors?
    Your help will highly be appreciated.
    Thanks
    hashirkk

    Sorry I could not help you with that. For javascript errors install use firefox and install firebug.

    Hello,

    Was the image in the media gallery deleted prior to this?

    hashirkk when you add an image to the slider, make sure you add a link URL to the image in your database (It's done automatically - don't change that). You can link to a desired page later on from the slider options near each image.

    Question
    The slider has arrows to go to the next and previous slide right. Is there any way I could change it from white to black? Since mine's a product review site there's a lot of white backgrounds and the arrows can't be seen at all. Which file should I edit?

    Hello lobobrandon,

    You can override the default css to point to your own image. So in your theme's style.css add something like:

    .cycloneslider-template-default .cycloneslider-prev{
         background-image: url("url to your image");
    }
    .cycloneslider-template-default .cycloneslider-next{
         background-image: url("url to your image");
    }

    I'm fine with the image. That part I explained to hashirkk.

    My question was regarding the arrow in the slideshow to view the next and previous slide. Would I be able to change the color in style.css itself? Or do I need to do something else. Any idea which code I'd have to modify?

    The prev/next arrows use white images. To change it to black create black arrow images and update your style.css. See my previous post.

    Did it :) It was already linked to the image folder and the file was uploaded there. So all I had to do was upload the new ones.

    I just installed Cyclone Slider 2 and getting the same problem as above, first slide shows up then stops. now I have three showing up then it stops. You didn't actually give an answer up there.
    Also, I am not as worried about this as I am worried about the next problem, which is, The page doesn't scroll beyond the slider now.
    can you give me some direction on these issues?
    thanx

    @Ondass, a link to the specific page would be helpful, even if I can't help, others would need to take a look at the site.

    Michael, I see that you already have a working slider on your home page. Why don't you just use whatever you're already using?

    Hi,

    Becuase it is to difficult for my client to use. It requires Photoshop to build the images and the developer who built it, used "Posts" as the slider manager. It's quiteconfusing and difficult for users who don't have Photoshop experience.

    Cycline Slider allows Title, Description and Link. Much easier.

    I can see Firebug has found Script errors, but i'm not as techy as you guys on this type of thing.

    Michael

    I don't use this plugin anymore so not sure if there's a bug or something. But, I'm guessing you haven't added the other pictures to the slider.

    Yes I have. I have added 12 images

    Do you know of a better slider with similar features and less bugs mate?

    Nope this is one of the best out there. The theme I use now has an inbuilt slider feature so I use that. It's the MADE theme from themeforest.
