Hello all, I am a new Silverstripe user and although I'm not new to CSS I am not a professional designer either so any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Everything shows up correctly on the main blog page but when I click to view the blog entry it completely ruins the theme.

I assume something about the javascript is conflicting with the file. I did not design the java myself. I purchased that code and have implemented into Silverstripe.

Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this? Or is there a way for the blog entry page to use a different page layout? For example, I would actually prefer if the blog entry did not include the big rotating graphical header and instead brought the content up to the top just below the navigation.

I'm not sure what additional information to provide. But any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated. I have started this site over twice trying to figure out what is causing the issue.

This is the CSS controlling the rotating images...

/* ============================= JS faded-slider START ===================================== */

#faded {
width: 960px;
height: 443px;
position: absolute;
top: 46px;
left: 225px;
margin: 0 auto;

#faded ul li {
background: url( repeat 50% 50%;
width: 986px;

#faded ul li div {
background: url( no-repeat 0% 0%;
width: 260px;
height: 173px;
padding: 78px 36px 60px 79px;
overflow: hidden;
position: absolute;
top: 19px;
left: 612px;
z-index: 100;

#faded ul li div em {
display: block;
padding: 0 0 4px 0;
line-height: 1.29em;
font-size: 24px;
font-weight: 500;
font-style: normal;
color: #332623;

#faded ul li div p {
padding: 0 0 0 2px;
line-height: 20px;
font-size: 13px;
color: #888376;

ul.pagination {
position: absolute;
right: 73px;
bottom: 43px;
z-index: 100;

ul.pagination li {
background: none !important;
float: left;
width: 25px !important;
padding: 0 0 0 6px;

ul.pagination li a {
background: url( no-repeat 0% 0%;
float: left;
width: 25px;
height: 25px;
overflow: hidden;
text-indent: -999px;
font-size: 0;

ul.pagination li a:hover {
background-position: 0% -25px;

ul.pagination li.current a {
background-position: 0% -25px;

/* ============================== JS faded-slider END ====================================== */

And thsi is the code

<html lang="$ContentLocale">
<% base_tag %>
<title><% if MetaTitle %>$MetaTitle<% else %>$Title<% end_if %> &raquo; $SiteConfig.Title</title>
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" />

In case anyone else is having the same issue I was able to get it resolved thanks to the help of another forums user. Here is a link to the thread:
