Jquery Slider

Last Modified: 2012-08-13

I have having some prbolems with my CSS hiding the text with my JQuery based slider.
I am not sure if this is due to the sIFR text replacement I'm using or an issue with my CSS code.
The link is http://www.marisasimoncakes.com/index.php?/sweet_rewards/
Any advice would be appreicated as the page is almost perfect now. Thank you.

Hi jsuissa,
Can you show the original php script instead of check rendered there? what is the CSS problem that hiding text after, sIFR replacement ? Can you clarify further for better understanding?


siFR is text image replacement that uses Flash to get text to be SEO. We want there to be a fifteen pixel dashed border on the ouside of the menu and the same width of 15px of space inside each menu item.  The entire menu should centered.

Below I included the code from our CMS for  you. Thanks.

Please ignore my previous notes except the code sample is correct.
What we want it to do is show the menu centered, where each testimonilal with the two Flash based layers (name and location) appearing to be right justified.
