[SOLVED] Smooth Slider and Header

Hi, there! I've added a Smooth Slider widget to my header and for some reason the bottom of the images in the slider are cutting off. I can't tell if it's something to do with the header or something to do with the widget. I would really appreciate any input!

My site is http://www.thebeautythatiseverywhere.com/

Thanks again.

What have you tried? What are the available settings for the slider? Where are the slider images generated from?

Hi, lmilesw, thanks for your reply. You appear to be magic: when I went in to get the details for you of my several hours of fiddling, I tried adjusting the height of the slider from 170px to 200px just to rule that out as the culprit, and guess what. That did the trick. I must have been staying in the range of 180px and not going high enough.

So it leaves a little more space than I'd like between the slider widget area and the horizontal bar, but it looks a lot better than it did so I'm pretty happy. If you have any suggestions on how to decrease the amount of blank space, I'd be very grateful.

Here's my header area configuration:
%bar2 %bar2 %pages %bar2 %logo <?php bfa_widget_area('name=Slider');?> %bar2 %bar2

Using Firebug I see a height of 190px for the slider. If I change that to 160px it get's rid of the space and doesn't cut off the image. I'm not sure how you set the height but you could try adding the following to the CSS Inserts section of the theme options.
HTML Code:
.smooth_slider {
height: 160px !important;
}
