On www.lactivist.net I have the rotating posts plugin doing what I want it to do and in the right place but it looks terrible.

Please can anyone help me with getting it so that it does not overlap at the bottom all the time - If I change the style of the title and content etc it just defaults to the style I am using overall.
Huge thanks!

Lisa

You seem to have a lot of plugins. My suggestion is to deactivate them all but the rotating posts plugin and see what it looks like

Does that plugin have any configuration of its own? Have you tried using the #rp_frame selector and playing with settings? An example is below where I added some padding and increased the height.
HTML Code:
div#rp_frame {
    border: 1px solid #C35817;
    height: 170px;
    margin: 5px 0 0;
    padding: 5px;
}
You can also limit your excerpt length so that too much text doesn't throw things off.

Thank you, the whole site is very slow so I have deleted some unused plugins and deactivated some but I need to keep the rotating ads there in the hope of making some money!
I haven't tried the frame thing yet, I'll try later, thank you!
