MMM-Carousel positional behaviour



  • Hi all

    What’s the expected behaviour when using positional mode?

    I have two modules with the same position, but Carousel isn’t rotating them. The two modules both appear on screen (stacked or located as you’d expect with two modules sharing the same position).

    Should I expect them to appear like that at first, then end up rotating when the first rotation time period has taken place? Or should they rotate right from the start when MM is restarted?

    Obviously they should EVENTUALLY rotate but it would help to know what the expected behaviour is.

    config.js follows; any tips very welcome!

    cheers
