    Greetings. I made some edits ti the plugin's css and replaced the slideshow's left and right nav buttons with ones my client wanted. Is there a way to protect these edits when the plugin is upgraded?

    Thanks.

    It is never been a good idea to change the core files of plugins or WordPress. Always use CSS overriding to accomplish you customization. For example, to remove padding you can put following rule in your theme’s style.css

    .flexslider .flex-direction-nav li a {background: url(URL_TO_YOUR_NAV) !important}

    !important make your style a top priority and it will be applied all the time no matter how many times you upgrade.

    Cheers!
