Jquery cycle - unstyled images displayed for a second before cycle starts

Posted on 2009-04-17

I'm trying to implement the jQuery Cycle demo here:

It works, but my problem is that as the page loads all 3 images are shown briefly, one on top of the other. Once the page is fully loaded everything works OK.
I've tried removing all unnecessary CSS in an attempt to get it to load faster but it doesn't help. I'm running this on a Drupal site and have tried with caching enabled and disabled, but neither makes a difference, so I'm thinking the problem lies somewhere else. You can see the problem in action at

Can anyone help?

    I should have searched the knowledgebase before posting the question!
    I just found my question answered in Q 24083051. The solution is to add overflow: hidden to the container div.
