I spent a good deal of time working with views carousel in Drupal 6 yesterday. There is a great screencast at Mustardseed Media to help you hit the ground running. Before starting, please remember that you need the jcarousel module if you want it to work at all.

There is more to maintaining a blog than writing stuff to share and hope someone reads it. The time involved, the technology to make it happen, the not to mention the shameless promotion. This blogthingee is about the tech behind the drop that gets some of the work done for you.
For any template that uses fields, the fields will be in array. In order to use this effectively, you will need to understand enough PHP to fetch data from an array. This is a place where the devel module can really help you, because you can use its dsm() function right in your template to see what variables it uses. There is an alternative to dsm() that works without devel module, but it's a bit longer to use.
For example, I placed the following code inside views-view-table.tmp.php.
First example shows the ($nid) that needs to be replaced for use.

I spend the majority of my time around Drupal in the areas of website building and in the theme layer. Anytime I can find things to make my theming life easier in either... I take it.
One of the 'limitations' (using that friendly) is the options for theming. IMPORTANT to note... Drupal 6 ROCKS!! THEMING!!. One of the important 'additions' I try to create when working in the theme layer is to improve my ability to use CSS. Some sites require fancy, creative, and/or custom stuff revolving around menus.
