How to use it:

1. Insert a list of images into the carousel.

  <div class="box"> 
    <ul class="list">
      <li><a href="#"><img src="1.jpg" alt="Alt"></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="2.jpg" alt="Alt"></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="3.jpg" alt="Alt"></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="4.jpg" alt="Alt"></a></li>

2. Add custom CSS styles to the carousel.

  position: relative;
  height: 264px;
  width: 424px;
  overflow: hidden;
  border: 1px solid #C5C5C5;

.image-slider .box {

  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;

.image-slider .list {
  overflow: hidden;
  width: 9999px;

  position: relative;
  width: 424px;

.image-slider .list li a { display: block; }
