    The sidebar is properly displayed on my end, in Safari:

    If you still experience issues, could you please send screenshots so we can better understand the issue?  Please see for information on making screenshots.

    Sorry to hijack someone else’s thread, I’m getting the same issue and as he hasn’t posted back, here goes.

    It happens in Firefox, the image scroll arrow covers the browser scroll bar on the right. Clicking on the scroll bar arrow on the browser actually changes the picture. For me this has been a problem since Carousel was introduced.

    I also find it not ideal that you have to scroll down anyway. Meta data and comments boxes are great but people probably don’t notice them, and if they do, it’s not easy to get to them when the browser scroll bar is largely hidden.

    Here is a screen shot which I hope explains better than my waffle.

    It works better in IE but images are offset to the right which doesn’t look great.

    Yep – I don’t like the scrolling down part either.

    Hi both of you;

    Could you link me to an example of where this is happening for you? Also, can you confirm what browser version you are using?



    Yes, Firefox 26

    If you follow this link, the images in the post should open in Carousel.



    Hi – I put together a post on my ‘practice’ site.

    Using Safari 7.0.1

    Yep, not just me then.

    Mark: I couldn’t reproduce in Firefox 26 or 27 on OSX, but I was able to on Windows 7. What OS are you using?

    Duffy: I was able to reproduce on Safari 7.0.1 as well.

    This issue was previously reported here:

    I have added our findings to the issue. Thanks for the report!

    Sorry, should have said, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

    I’m looking forward to the next release. I really want the option for my visitors to be able to leave comments on their pictures.

    It would be nice if you could also put the comments closer to the pictures. People won’t necessarily scroll down to even see that there is a comment box.

    Duffy: They can always scroll down using the wheel on their mouse, for example, or using the arrow keys. I know that’s a workaround, and hopefully we’ll fix the issue soon for you. ALso, if you want to move the comments closer, you can likely do that with some CSS.

    Thanks. The CSS stuff sounds good.
    I guess I can put that CSS in the JetPack Custom CSS area.

    Any idea where I can get what I need?

    Try something like this:

    .jp-carousel-info {
    margin-top: -30px;

    Of course, the value there is just a suggestion; play around with it until you get what you like!

    SaWeet!!! Thanks!
