I just got done setting up a slideshow using that latest plugin and it would not rotate my content at all... I downgraded from 2.9999 -> 2.99 and it works flawlessly.

Has anyone else noticed a problem with the cycle plugin v2.9999 not working for them?

After digging into v2.9999, I realized I needed jQuery 1.3.2, so... I downloaded jquery_update which updates Drupal's jquery to... 1.3.2 Still nothing. I ran the database update against jquery_update, I checked the status report to verify that I am running 1.3.2 and still nothing.

I am going to throw out a bitchfest that the v3.x installation documentation says absolutely nothing about v2.9999, nor that if you decide to download v2.9999, you are going to need jquery_update and even then, it's still probably not going to work... This one factor alone is probably why so many people have a problem getting this module to work out of the box.

Throw v2.99 at it and it works awesome! The fun fact about v2.99? You can't download it from http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle/download.html and if you try to find it at https://github.com/malsup/cycle ? The latest you will find next to v2.9999, is 2.88

I noticed a v1.1-lite was uploaded sometime in 2011 and it has a usage requirement of jQuery 1.3.2, but I have no idea if it was labeled incorrectly or what... There also is no v1.1-full meaning the extra fancy effects probably aren't available with the v1.1 version.

For those of you having problems getting the latest v2.9999 to work, I have kindly attached v2.99! Cool thing about v2.99? It says you need jQuery 1.3.2 (implying jquery_update) but I *think* it will work fine with the core jquery version. (don't quote me on this...)

I did not see this reported on the front page and killed a few hours troubleshooting it. Is it possible to re-add this to the front page again? I can 100% confirm that this is an issue in Drupal 6.x with Views 3.0 and Views Slideshow 3.0. It will not work without the jquery.cycle-2.99 javascript that philsward provided (great job and thank you by the way).

I did add a note about this issue to the documentation page at: http://drupal.org/node/903244

Had the same problem. Used the cycle plugin found in this thread and now it works.

This issue is registered under version 6.x-3.x-dev but I experienced the same problem under 7.x-3.0. Thank you so much!

I am still not able to make it work.

I am using
Drupal 6.22
Views 6.x-3.0
Views Slideshow 6.x-3.0

Jquery UI 1.6
Jquery Update 1.3.2

I have downloaded the v2.99 from the zip folder and added the three min.js files in /sites/all/libraries/jquery.cycle but still it is not rotating at all. I have Flushed all the caches from drupal settings and also cleared my browser cache. It is still not working.

I am trying to make it work with fade transition. Any other solutions?

Hi shenagard, would it be possible for you to update to Drupal 6.28 from 6.22? I think that might help solve your problem. Also try deactivating jquery update. All you should need in the jquery.cycle folder is one of the .js files, try jquery.cycle.all.js.

Thanks for posting version 2.99, philsward! It worked great for me.

I updated a very old Drupal 6.18 site yesterday and once again ran into this problem upon updating the modules. I guess the Drupal 6 version of this module will rely on jquery.cycle 2.99 forevermore.

updating v2.99 & jquery info

Is there a particular version of jQuery needed also?

I am having a problem with a Views Slideshow, where the slides/images are not rotating/sliding on the page.
However, they are sliding when I look at the view in the Preview Mode.

I'm thinking it's related to my jQuery plugins or version...

Any help greatly appreciated as I have trying to resolve this for weeks now...

I had the same problem: Nothing happend with the latest version (which is now 3.x). Using the 2.99 version makes it work. I can't see any hint to this on the module page though.

ecolcar’s picture

Hi yan,

Will try that. Any idea's where I can find 2.99 version?

ecolcar, it's attached to this issue:

The note on the project front page:

Unless you use jquery_update module the latest version of jquery cycle won't work for Drupal 6. I recommend you download version 2.88 which you can find here: https://github.com/malsup/cycle/downloads

goes to a dead link. The download in not available. Consider linking instead to this issue where people can download version 2.99. Or better yet just provide a link to the zip so they can download the zip directly.

jquery.cycle version 2.99

My request is actually not a bug report, but a documentation task, but I am not going to change the category as the main issue is the bug.

Actually if no one is planning on fixing this soon can we also add this info and the download link for version 2.99 of jquery.cycle to the README.txt file too? That is where I went first to see how to set it up and lost some time on this because of that.

God Bless!

Perfect! I almost started to tear out my hair because I couldn't find the right version of the cycle.js …

[2015-06-16] I ran into this issue about 4 days ago and it stopped me dead in my tracks. I thought that it might be some odd configuration on my machine or some issue with the Windows Operating System. After I failed to get Views_Slideshow to work on my MackBook-Pro, I started to look for some kind of "update-causes-broken-software-problem". I knew that Views_Slideshow was working about a month ago before other issues caused me to completely eviscerate the previous version of my Drupal development site.

This fix, fixed my problem. When you try to use Views_Slideshow the Library that goes with it is no longer download-able (from malsup), instead you have to fiddle with [Windows] Cntr+C copying a huge kleg of code and then pasting it back into the "text-editor-of-your-choice". Maybe something went wrong there, but Drupal did not feel that it deserved any kind of error message.

I just hid away the previous file and extracted the Library that philsward [jquery.cycle-2.99.zip] so kindly made available and everything now works!! This was a huge time-suck.

Is it possible that Drupal 7.37 did something to break cycle-2 or is it more likely that the copy-paste is to blame? This issue is still an issue. By the way I was using views_cycle-3.1 on Drupal 7.37.

Support for Views Slideshow 6.x is mostly deprecated (ie bug fixes and major errors may be looked at and security issues, but not really anything else), so closing.
