Views Slideshow with JQuery Cycle had been working successfully for a long time, displaying a cycling set of 8 photos with cross-dissolve transitions. Now it's displaying a blank screen between each content item, for the same duration specified for those items in Views>Slideshow>Settings. All content is being displayed, nothing skipped, and transition is correct. But it acts as if a blank item is alternating with the intended content. I tried going back to earlier versions of Views and JQuery but there was no improvement in this problem.
Suggestions on why this might happen and how to fix? Thanks.
