I'm having a hard time getting this module to work. I've followed the instructions as well as I could but what I get is a black box and the slides below that box. Can anyone please shed some light on this?

Use now the latest version...
i could not get it working to... i use ss3 and it seems theme simple uses in the .ss template directly the call for jquery.
Disabled it in the template and maxskitter shows up in the page.

I downloaded the most recent version from

I am having a similar issue - but only the black box. I have tried disabling maxskitter's jquery in _config.php per the instructions, but have had no luck.

I am using the sunrise theme:

in the theme Simple then
near the bottom of the code

<% require javascript( %>
<% require javascript(themes/simple/javascript/script.js) %>

replace with

<% require javascript(maxskitter/javascript/jquery-1.6.3.min.js) %>
<% require javascript(themes/simple/javascript/script.js) %>

leave maxskitter as it is with no disabling of anything in the config... for me it works now perfectly

so maybe in your template is jquery directly called... so replace and look if it works

To get it working:

copy simple/javascript/script.js to mysite/code/script.js

in simple/templates/ replace this:

<% require javascript('framework/thirdparty/jquery/jquery.js') %>
<%-- Please move: Theme javascript (below) should be moved to mysite/code/page.php --%>
<script type="text/javascript" src="{$ThemeDir}/javascript/script.js"></script>

with this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="mysite/code/script.js"></script>
