Effects

I have been trying to add new effects to the module with no success. I have tried to enter custom code into the Jquery Cycle Plugin settings with no effect. I have cut and pasted from your example site, and it's not overriding the drop down effects. I have tried to link to jquery ui effects, but that hasn't worked either. I would like to use custom java effects but not sure where to place them or how to initialize them. If you could provide some GOOD documentation I would appreciate it.
