buttontextBrowser Info Environment
Most probably you have some other css rules that are taking priority over the rule set in view.css.
The actual html output would be:
<a class="btn btn-default cycle-link-hidden" href="http://www.foo.com">buttontext</a>
so it follows that you must have a definition of btn or btn-default which sets display:block or display:inline overriding the cycle-link-hidden display:none.
I have added !important to cycle-link-hidden which may fix the issue. Please update to version 1.0.0
