Ok, but buggy.
By , for WP 4.1.1

It works ok if you just need basic slider options... But once your needs get more exotic, this slider fails to deliver what it promises. I chose this slider specifically because it has youtube and custom html capabilities.
The youtube video slide is nearly useless though as it just grows as big as its container. We just want the original youtube video size, as it being as huge as it is just.... doesn't fit.

Secondly, the custom HTML functionality works... as long as you dont need styles. They get removed at random. I don't understand why. If it somehow breaks the slider, we, as designers/developers will find a way around it. Why is html and styling removed at random?
Plus it doesn't allow iframes either(tried to embed youtube video that way).

I am really discouraged from opening a forum support thread about these things because I saw they have already been addressed with no response from the developer.

Works as expected

I just needed a basic image slider. So I tried about 4 different slider plugins and was mostly disappointed for 1 reason or another. The nice thing about Cyclone2 is that it's simple and intuitive. And they don't skimp on the free features.

Also works well with Thrive Content Builder, which is a big plus for me.

Easy to use and customize
By , for WP 4.1

Works great. Very easy to understand and configure. The default templates are fine but I needed something different. I had no trouble creating my own template and customizing the CSS to put the slide show caption in a box on the left and the image on the right.

Great Slider

One of the best slider plugins out there.

Exactly what I needed, and top support
By , for WP 4.1

Creates sliders with ease, and very flexible. Support appears to be first class - I reported a bug via WP Support Forum and the NEXT day there was a fix implemented. Have tried several and this worked best for me.

Excellent

Finally found a slider worth its weight in gold (without having to purchase the "pro" version).

Excellent support

I have the Pro version (after using the regular version). Excellent support. Much thanks!

Problem
By , for WP 4.0.1

First of all, this is the best free slider out there.
But I have a problem.
After update, thumbnail template is not working properly. It is showing code instead of thumbnails.
Second problem was there in older version. After importing slider in my page, when I click on previous/next button slider is skipping two images.

I'm using carton theme, and wordpress 4.0.1.

Good but i found bug
By , for WP 4.0.1

In my environment happened the following error: Slider not found ... When inspecting the code I saw that on line 60 of the / src / CycloneSlider / Data is being received the id instead of slug

$slider = $this->plugin['data']->get_slider_by_slug =($slider_slug);

//$slider_slug receiving ID

Then added the following check before:

if (is_numeric ($slider_slug))
{
    $post = get_post ($slider_slug);
    $slider_slug = $post->post_name;
}
Great slider, fast support

Excellent slider, exactly what I needed. Problem with version 2.9.0 was fixed quickly and effectively in 2.9.1. Great job. Thank you!
