Don’t Panic

The Carousel looks something like the below out the box (shown mid transition).

There are options for choosing different pagers and customizing the overlay, but for full control of all the options provided by Cycle2 you will need to override the template (easily achievable using technology such as collective.jbot) and make CSS tweaks.


To enable this package in a buildout-based installation:

  1. Edit your buildout.cfg and add covertile.cycle2 to the list of eggs to install:

    eggs =

After updating the configuration you need to run ‘’bin/buildout’’, which will take care of updating your system.

Go to the ‘Site Setup’ page in a Plone site and click on the ‘Add-ons’ link.

Check the box next to covertile.cycle2 and click the ‘Activate’ button.


This package provides an uninstall Generic Setup profile, however, it will not deregister the Cycle2 javascripts from the JS registry dependencies as they could be used by other addons. Feel free to manually uninstall these if you are sure that you no longer use them.


You should read the below in conjunction with the collective.cover documentation.
