Portfolio Zen
This is an excellent component and I thank the author for this.

But contrary to the author's claim that the external JS has now been integrated with the component, the latest download still has JS being pulled from aolcdn.

Also, the width of the slideshow seems to have been hardcoded (500px). Even when I modified the script to a different width, it resets to 500px when the JS executes.

I hope the author can fix this.
Owner's reply

Portfolio Zen initially shipped with a stylesheet that was leeching from the Dojo project. This was an error I made in migrating from development to production and was what I was referring to by correcting the external links.

Portfolio Zen makes use of AOL's cdn because cdn's are faster for loading javascript frameworks.

Relating to the width issue, I'm currently working on an updated version that will be more flexible in regards to the images sizes. I'm also adding another layout and may include the option of using a local version of dojo vs a cdn. I expect to have it done and on the website by the new year.

Thanks for using Portfolio Zen and taking the time to write your review!
