Currently working on a slideshow for this website, and I've used the same code in the past but because I am now working with a wordpress template I'm having some problems.

Link to slideshow

The next image is loading underneath the current image and then moving up, which I need them images to stay in place of course.


Code:
<div id="lookbook">
<a href="http://www.axandapple.com/store/?cat=71" target="_self"><ul class="ppt">
	<li><img src="http://axandapple.com/store/wp-content/themes/eCommerce/images/AxAndApple_WitchingHour_Elza-1.jpg" ALT="Ax+Apple Presents The Witching Hour Collection"></li>
