Attempting to create a horizontal scroller using post_thumbnail's.

I've made a filterable portfolio section using this tutorial: http://www.wearepixel8.com/blog/filterable-portfolio but my attempts to make it a horizontal scroller have failed, i've tried several different jQuery image scroller plugins to attempt it but none have worked.

Can anyone give advice on how to achieve what i'm looking to do? Thanks!

I did it on a few sites. An example is below. If you want the jQuery code for it, I can give it you. It is a list of post thumbnails with their post titles shown below them. paragonhondainfo.com

That would be awesome! You'd think someone would of made a tutorial on how to do this for wordpress already. Thanks for your help. – jetDL Oct 13 '10 at 15:57
Loop code - pastebin.com/NzJX5G4R, scroller function - pastebin.com/5aqDHA74, and the call to the function - pastebin.com/1qWBGFwr. – moettinger Oct 13 '10 at 16:02
here is the original which I modified to fit my wordpress needs. jqueryfordesigners.com/jquery-infinite-carousel – moettinger Oct 13 '10 at 16:04
Sweet, thanks. I'll let you know how it goes! – jetDL Oct 13 '10 at 16:31
Works wonderfully after a little finessing (which is expected). Now to figure out the glitch in the filtering! Thanks for the help! – jetDL Oct 15 '10 at 13:22

Scrollable is quite usable: Good examples, clear documentation. You have to move some CSS rules into your script tough to keep everything working for people without JavaScript. I did that just last night. :) Took more time than expected, but the result is really smooth.
