Re: Smooth slider on home page
In case you haven’t yet figured out the problem with Smooth Slider “vanishing” your other widgets, here’s why (I think):
The overall page width is 960px with 20px padding (.padder div) = 920px for content.
Your sidebar (first-section div) has a margin-right of 560px which results in a width of 360px for the widgets.
Oops! The Smooth Slider widget is 380px wide – 20px too much – so, if you put it at the top of the section, it throws everything else out of whack.
Reduce the width of the widget to 360px, or edit the first-section div to have a margin-right of only 540px and things should work.
The Firebug for Firefox addon helps zero in on problems like this. I installed it a few days ago and am loving it!
Hope this helps!
