change to jquery effect

I downloaded a jquery template effect and I'm trying to make one change to it and can't get it to work. There are 3 buttons and links that appear when you roll over the buttons which are called Subitem. Instead of links I just want a small paragraph. Everytime I put in the paragraph and there is either a lot of space at the bottom or it scolls off the page. It seems to need the ul and li and links. Below is the sample.

<ul>                                                
<li><a href="#">Subitem</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Subitem</a></li>                              
<li><a href="#">Subitem</a></li>                                    
</ul>

Have you tried to just do it like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <title>Sliding Background Image Menu with jQuery</title>
		<meta charset="UTF-8" />
        <meta name="description" content="Sliding Background Image Menu with jQuery" />
        <meta name="keywords" content="jquery, background image, image, menu, navigation, panels" />
		<meta name="author" content="Codrops" />
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/style.css" />
		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/sbimenu.css" />

		<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=News+Cycle&v1' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />

    </head>
    <body>
		<div class="container">
	<!--    <div class="header">
		
		
			</div>-->
			<div class="content">
             <div class="sbi_container width lightRed"></div>
				<div id="sbi_container" class="sbi_container">
					<div class="sbi_panel" data-bg="images/1.jpg">

					<div class="sbi_panel" data-bg="images/3.jpg">
						<a href="#" class="sbi_label">test</a>
						<div class="sbi_content">
							<p>
							    Small paragraph 3
							</p>
						</div>
					</div>
			  </div>
			</div>
			<div class="more"> </div>
		</div>
        
        <div class="sbi_container width bottomPiece"> <img src="images/video.png" width="875" height="460" alt="video"></div>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.easing.1.3.js"></script>
		<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.bgImageMenu.js"></script>
		;
 
    <script type="text/javascript">
			$(function() {
				$('#sbi_container').bgImageMenu({
					defaultBg	: 'images/default.jpg',
					border		: 1,
					type		: {
						mode		: 'seqHorizontalSlide',
						speed		: 250,
						easing		: 'jswing',
						seqfactor	: 100
					}
				});
			});
		</script>
    </body>
</html>

The .sbi_content div is the one to be animated, just put your paragraph there.

Nice try, I didn't think of that but it still scolls way up for some reason. You can't seem to put more than one or two lines of copy. Maybe it's a lightheight or something somewhere in the jquery but I haven't seem to be able to find it.

maybe this somehow?

$content            = $el.find('div.sbi_content'),

Oh sorry. some errors in my code. It is the sbi_container div that is animated. I tested it locally and it doesn't scroll up. Here is the cleaned up code:

 
<!DOCTYPE html>

sorry, I'll check that soon. I've moved on but want to see if this works without it scrolling up.

It doesn't work when you put more than one line of copy. I ended up not using this design. Thanks for your help anyway.
