Can't get YOOcarousel Joomla! extension to work

Can anyone help with getting the Joomla extension YOOcarousel to work?

I can give admin login (this is a test site) and you can see why the extension/plugin won't work.

It is installed OK - just can't figure out how to use it. I've watched video tutorials and read tutorials, but
still no go.

Can you post a link?

That should suffice I can analyse without admin access.

Here is link to homepage -

Click on left link "Carouselled".

As I've never used this extension I cannot say for sure however Joomla plugins similar to this do not like.

The snippet { loadposition content6 } did you input it so that it is not using ''BOLD'' text, as generally plugin syntax must be placed normally with NO text formatting.

If this remains an issue for you send me the admin data and I'll get it sorted for you:

''I worked out how to do it myself''

How did you do it then, the page you describe is showing a 404.

Sorry, I deleted that page.

You don't have to use any code in a page unless you want to put the module into content. If you look at the top of the site the carousel is there working - the 3 tick images sliding across.

You load the module into the position you want (in my case, "top"), pick a category you wish to display, and adjust the parameters according to how you want to display the module.

I also have the YOOaccordian working on the left navigation:

I got rid of the bold and loaded it into a front page article (the first one  - "Welcome to Joomla!", no bolding, and it's there.

Sorry - should have tested the no formatting you suggested. Points r yours.
