I'm running Drupal 6.13, using the 6.x-2.x-dev dated Nov 6 2009. This is my first bug report, so I'm sorry if I miss any information or give too many details.
I've got a View of an RSS feed that used the Feeds module to pull in the data. I created a block and set the Style to Views Carousel and limited the items displayed to 5. My site's theme is a custom zen theme, so it might be messing up the styles in general. (At least I didn't notice any difference between using the IE7 skin and Tango skin.) However, when I try to set styles for .jcarousel-list-horizontal, it seems to be ignoring my custom.css file, which is located in sites/all/themes/myzen
If the carousel is set to horizontal, and the block is set to display in the header, then it stretches the entire width of my browser window - Screenshot. Each item is set to a specific width, which I can't seem to change. Here's the interesting bit though. I had Firebug open to look at the classes and styles for the section. As the script runs, the width of the containing div grows by an amount which I'm assuming is the width of the items or however many I've chosen to scroll by and the Left position also grows - Screenshot. Visibility is set to ON in the settings in this case, and it's been running for maybe 30 seconds or so.
Vertical carousels do a similar thing. The width of each item is half of the block, and it will show two items side-by-side, and then scroll them vertically to the next set of items. Here is a screenshot where you can see the block on the side, with items overlapping each other (Visibility was set to off) and the height growing - Screenshot. When the visibilty is set to on, then the items don't overlap, BUT the height grows infinitely(?), or at least it grows until the script throws an error - Error screenshot and Height screenshot. As you can see, the height is 1.5663e+7px.
Here's a screenshot that shows the settings I was using. I just changed Vertical and Visibility during these tests - Settings.
I hope this is not a difficult fix, since I really like the demos and screencasts for this module. I'm afraid I don't know any jQuery myself, and I'm still a Drupal newbie, so I haven't looked at the code.
Thanks for all your hard work on this module
