Cyclone Slider

Create amazing slideshows with ease. Built for both developers and non-developers.

Why is my slider not working?

Check for javascript errors in your page. This is the most common cause of the slider not running.

cycle not a function

error - most probably you have double jquery (jquery.js) included from improperly coded plugins. Remove the duplicate jquery or deactivate the plugin causing the double jquery include.

Why is there is an extra slide that I didn't add?

Most probably its wordpress adding paragpraphs on line breaks next to the slides therefore adding a blank <p> slide. You can try adding this to functions.php:

remove_filter('the_content', 'wpautop');

How to display it in post/page?

Use the shortcode [cycloneslider id ="my-slideshow"]

How to display it inside template files (header.php, index.php, page.php, etc.)?

Use <?php echo do_shortcode('[cycloneslider id ="my-slideshow"]'); ?>

What are the shortcode options?

[cycloneslider id ="my-slideshow" fx="fade" timeout="5000" speed="1000" width="500" height="300" show_prev_next="true" show_nav="true"]

How can I use templates?

[cycloneslider id ="my-slideshow" template="custom-name"]

Where do I add my own templates?

Inside your theme create a folder named "cycloneslider" (as of version 1.0.5). Add your templates inside.
