I seem to have the same issue you had regarding the slider defacing the website
I tried Reinstalling it ( the entire Test setup to be accurate running on an unedited theme)
and enabled and dissabled block time cache.
hey man, just wanted to apologize for the post of mine in your thread. I like to kid around sometimes, and I couldn't resist the username analogy. I honestly couldn't offer much of value to help in the thread though, most was already given by Jake and Adam and Adam is still "helping", but I do wish you and your site the best though. :) ;)
