I got a slider to work, and it was pretty easy (finally). I haven't coded in a long time so I am lost. I found many nice sliders and had them functionaing, but ever time I would put the code into my X.ss file, they would no longer work.
So, as stated above, I got one up and running in its own html file, I used the SS html editor in the GUI and used an iframe tag to call the page. I now have a slider without butchering code.
