I've installed your slider using the PHP code. I had some trouble with the pagination buttons overlapping the top blog post as the padding was set to -25px?
I've played around with it and think I have sorted the bottom padding problem so it's spaced to 20px now. The problem I ma having is the slider takes a little while to load and the title of the top blog post is getting chopped in half which looks a bit rubbish. It wasn't doing this prior to me changing the padding of the slider.
Would you be able to suggest how I can prevent this from happening whilst having some padding between the slider and the top post?
