Great plugin BUT
By , for WP 4.5.3

Since the last version, the developer added an "updgrade to pro" link to the post submit box in the backend.
I really can understand that developers who release their plugin in a free version experience problems with selling the premium, paid one. Also, I often buy premium versions of plugins if I really like the features or to support the developer.
But this politic of adding annoying upgrade links in our backend is unacceptable.
Especially when you add those links to places such as pages, posts, media, etc. What the hell?
Besides, not selling your product is your problem and not ours. If you want us to buy your premium version, improve it instead of littering our site with ads.

Sorry about the one star and the rant, but you developers have to stop this.

Took down my site
By , for WP 4.2.4

As soon as I activated this plugin, it took down my entire site. I couldn't access the admin panel or the main site.

The fix was to delete the plugin files.

Do not touch this plugin until it is fixed.

Knock, knock, no answer...
By , for WP 4.2.2

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



Not Work for me...
By , for WP 4.0

I have WordPress 4. I installed this plugin, but when I try add a image to create a slideshow, the image doesn't appear. For me, unfortunately, useless.

Cyclone Slider 2 and Cyclone Slider Pro
By , for WP 3.9.2

because of good experiences with Cyclone Slider 2 I purchased Cyclone Slider Pro. Not cheap

Unfortunately the program has bugs. When you have entered the URL to an image and by chance you swith the select option for Links to "Lightbox", the URL will be deleted

the lightbox does not show image title and caption

and more points

Unfortunately the author does not respond, even when support is promised for the paied version. He also does not give support here in the forum of the plugin

I would like to have my money back, I am disappointed

Didn't work in Firefox 25 or Internet Explorer 8
By , for WP 3.8

Didn't work at all for me using Firefox 25 or Internet Explorer 8 on Windows; it was just stuck on the first slide. Seemed to work fine in Chrome, though. Switched to Soliloquy Lite instead.

poor support
By , for WP 3.5.2

The slide change icons not visible in Firefox when the slide is a video, the video playing does not stop the slide from changing and stopping the video.... slow response, bad support.
