on my page httl://www.cavsworld.com I am using the scrolling image block for the XCGallary module. I just noticed the right half of the picture is clipping. I think I tracked it to this line

scroller1 = new scrollerObj(0,0,125,<{$block.wh}>,"center","holder");

of xcgal_block_scroll.html in /modules/xcgal/templates/blocks

My thumbnails are actually 200 pixels wide. I tried changing htat line to

scroller1 = new scrollerObj(0,0,200,<{$block.wh}>,"center","holder");

and do have "Update module template .html files from themes/your theme/templates directory?" set to yes, but the images continue to clip.

Anyone know what's going on?

What is your themes column width?

I don't know - where do I look for this?

If it makes a difference, the images do not clip in the main picture library, only on the scrolling images block

you would look for this in your theme folder

likely in style.css, but could be in theme.html or r_block.html(your block.html)

The column is ok it is the block that is doing it.

I tried to see the actual image to compare, and they are linked to the wrong images also.

Good luck.

Well ya now that I look at it you mean that they are freezing at every image.... yes that is a function of the module.

Sorry I define clipping as tearing on forced altercation of an image.

I believe you will find this calibration inhttp://www.cavsworld.com/modules/xcgal/js/dw_scroller.js

Quote:

// defaults
this.pause = 4000; // how long to pause on messages
this.spd = 55; // frequency of calls to scroll
this.inc = 3; // how much to scroll per call
this.fontFam = "verdana, helvetica, arial, sans-serif";
this.fontSz = "12px";
this.fontClr = "#000000";


I would imagine that the pause function is causing the frame freeze

the freezing is fine - it's good to pause at each image. What I'm concerned about is the right 30% or so of the images are missing - compare a picture in the home page to the same picture as a thumbnail in the picture library. In some cases an important part of the picture is missing.
