Knock, knock, no answer...

I bought the pro version, because I like the software and find it very useful for my website. But you cannot upgrade the software because a license ID and key is needed. The developer doesn't deliver that and does not reply my mails. So soon I will uninstall the software because it is a security risk, and ask Paypal to get my money back.

No communication
By , for WP 4.2.2

I have noticed that is seems to have been about 3-4 months prior to this post in May 2015 since the plugin author has replied to any questions on the forum. A very large number of posts appear to be unresolved. Not really the kind of author interaction that I trust in a plugin. I think I will find one that has better communication from the author.

I am assuming that this is probably due to a "Pro" version. I am the type of person who buys pro versions for my company, BUT only after I see that customer service is not sub par.

Sorry Cyclone Slider.........

Cyclone slider 2 pro. Cannot fully install
By , for WP 4.2.1

Have just purchased Cyclone slider 2 pro. I went to settings where the lightbox and easing boxes are now checked, are but it also now asks me for a ID and Key. These are supposed to be accessible from the client area on http://www.codefleet.net who supply Cyclone slider software.

When I go to this area: http://support.codefleet.net/client/login/ I type in my username and password which works on other parts of the codefleet.net site, but in this instance it says
"oops, incorrect email or password"

It's not incorrect at all. I've checked, double, triple, and more.

When I try and install any updates to cyclone slider 2 pro it says 'download failed. Forbidden'

Anyone else having these troubles? Any experience of this type of thing before? Please let me know. I've paid over £23 for the pro extension but can't use it properly because of poor delivery of plugin and failed updates.

Any help at all will be very welcome



Easy to use, very versatile
By , for WP 4.1.2

Love the responsive functionality, very versatile, easy to integrate (with shortcodes or php snippets), plus the various things it can be used for. Have utilised in numerous WordPress website builds.

Only didn't give 5 stars as we couldn't get the custom template functionality working as per instructions on the main website. Perhaps we have done something wrong, but it just wouldn't work. Would love to get this figured out if possible for future usage. Or is it only available on a premium version of the plugin?

Simple and Good

Simple and Easy to work with it...

Great and simple slider
By , for WP 4.1.1

I am using this slider for almost all my projects and it is a good and simple one. Thank you for this plugin.

One note though regarding the last version :

I set it up on a development server with the debugger on and found this issue after upgrading:

You should replace the call to public function render_page() by public function render_page($post) in WpAdminSubPage.php class.

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
By , for WP 4.1

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.
