My slides are not advancing on my front page, nor in the preview pane from the Views settings page. When I enable the slideshow controls, the previous or next functions do not work.

I successfully installed jquery.cycle.all.js in sites/all/libraries/jquery.cycle. There is no error showing in the Views format slideshow setting.

When I inspect the front page, I don't see jquery.cycle.all.js being loaded. The only scripts being loaded related to Views Slideshow are located in drupal7/modules/views_slideshow/js and drupal7/modules/views_slideshow/contrib/views_slideshow_cycle/js.

I am very stuck. Any guidance would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

While I try to resolve this issue, I have successfully setup a slideshow using Views jQFX: Nivo Slider. Hope that helps.

Same here

I had the same issue. What i did was to change the permission of jquery.cycle.all.min.js in the libraries folder to 0775.

Wow that took me way to long to figure out! The plugin that the main tutorial points you to doesn't work, the one here does: https://github.com/malsup/cycle/blob/master/jquery.cycle.all.js

jsanchez13 - Could you explain how to check/change that permission?

melissjs - Thank you for the message. I also discovered that the original file location of jquery.cycle.all.js was no longer functional, because I kept getting an error in Views slideshow settings. I installed the github version of the file and it removed the Views error, but I still have the original issue of the slides not advancing. I'm glad you got yours working; it gives me hope!

I'm using hostgator. "Change Permissions" is on my menu bar in cpanel. If you can't find it, call your hosting provider.

I have the same issue. Slideshow works when I have Aggregate JavaScript files off in performace settings (admin/config/development/performance) , however, when it is turned back on the slideshow stops.

starbucksguy’s picture

jsanchez13 - I was able to change the permissions to executable, but I had no where to enter a numeric value.

I recently transferred my site to a live server, but when I enabled the slider block and viewed with Internet Explorer I received the following errors:

Does that shed any new light on the situation? Thanks.

Same problem here.
Changed the permission / downloaded new file without any luck.

solodky - you're raising a different issue. This discussion involves the slider not functioning on any browser. Please establish a separate issue.

Same issue here. My slideshow doesn't cycle. I've tried various versions of the jquery.cycle js file but can't get it to work.

Any resolution on this?

I updated views to 3.1 from one of the release candidates, and views slideshow stopped cycling as this issue describes.

Is there something in views 3.1 that's causing this problem?

Scott McCabe’s picture

Scratch that. I got it working.

Given that the cycling was working when I started working on this project, and given that a jquery.cycle directory existed in the libraries directory of the site, I assumed this had to do with updating views.

However, I since learned that the jquery.cycle directory is empty.

I placed the requested JavaScript library file in there, and everything works fine now.

After spending more than 3 days trying to figure out whether I had configured something wrong, I could get it to work by disabling javascript aggregation.
Go to yoursite.name/admin/config/development/performance and uncheck "Aggregate Javascript" and save configuration.

Check this issue.
There's an important setting for multiple value fields..

laura s’s picture

Encountering the same problem. I've tried various suggestions here to no avail. This is not a file permissions issue, or a minification issue.

What I've determined is that rewriting the field output (on a slideshow displaying fields) within Views will disable the slideshow action. If the rewrite is disabled, then the cycle will happen (although it cycles only once then disappears, whatever the settings set in Views).

Next I think I'll try rewriting the slide output the way I need via tpl and see how just displaying a node does on the slide actions.

#21 Make sure you uncheck "Display all values in same row" under Multiple Field Settings. This fixed it for me.

So as you can see from this issue there are a myriad of reasons why this wouldn't work. And a myriad of ways to fix it. Hopefully one of those will fix it for you. Marking as fixed. If you still have an issue post a new issue with steps to recreate it. Also make sure you view looks correct if you don't have slideshow enabled.

Automatically closed -- issue fixed for 2 weeks with no activity.

I had this same issue and it took me 2 hours to figure it out - issue #1290676

Basically the json2.js file I downloaded was the cause, I had download the HTML page the file was on instead of the actual json2.js file.

batdesign’s picture

Same issue for me, but different cause. Chrome console was telling me the slideshow module css and module js file permissions were denied. No amount of permission changing fixed this.

I had installed Views Slideshow using Drupal 7's admin module install interface. I tried deleting the module folder and uploading by ftp instead. Worked straight away.
Second time recently I've had issues with the admin module install. Time to stop using it I think.

Hope this helps someone.


Title:Slide images do not cycle, prev/next controls do not work» Slide images do not cycle, prev/next controls do not work in IE but does in Firefox using denitto theme in wordpress
Priority:Normal» Critical
Status:Closed (fixed)» Needs review

Hello. I am using the Denitto theme in wordpress for my website and my slider no longer slides in IE but does in firefox. I updated my wordpress version to 3.5 a few days ago, but it worked fine up until last night. Any suggestions on how to get it to work again?

@MRSWALTERDEUCE As far as this forum (and this website) is concerned, one suggestion might be to start by rebuilding your website in Drupal ;)

If you then install this module and still have a problem with it not working, your post will then be valid.
