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...)
