I have actually fixed it by uninstalling the reactive slider I formerly used and installed the widgetkit plugin with the style folder you gave us. Works beautifully.
On a side note, I wanted to keep some of the items from the original, so I am just going to add them to the child theme CSS and hope it works. hah. If not, could provide a tutorial at some point that goes deeper into retaining these snippets, be they from the past theme or the reloaded version through those files you gave us? I would really appreciate it.
