Place slideshow under parent DIV

I’m trying to place a carousel within the border of thisdiv, I’ve tried z-index on the carousel which did work but it made all of the other items within it not clickable.

I have tried setting the border radius of another wrapper to match but this for some reason doesn’t do anything. Is there a way to place it behind the div that’s solely a border so that the edges don’t overlap.

Thanks in advance.

var slideIndex = 1;
showSlides(slideIndex);

function plusSlides(n) {
  showSlides(slideIndex += n);
}

function currentSlide(n) {
  showSlides(slideIndex = n);
}

function showSlides(n) {
  var i;
  var slides = document.getElementsByClassName("mySlides");
  var dots = document.getElementsByClassName("dot");
  if (n > slides.length) {
    slideIndex = 1
  }
  if (n < 1) {
    slideIndex = slides.length
  }
  for (i = 0; i < slides.length; i++) {
    slides[i].style.display = "none";
  }
  for (i = 0; i < dots.length; i++) {
    dots[i].className = dots[i].className.replace(" active", "");
  }
  slides[slideIndex - 1].style.display = "block";
  dots[slideIndex - 1].className += " active";
}

  1. Add overflow: hidden; to .main-wrap. Updated snippet:

    var slideIndex = 1;
    showSlides(slideIndex);
    
    function plusSlides(n) {
      showSlides(slideIndex += n);
    }
    
    function currentSlide(n) {
      showSlides(slideIndex = n);
    }
    
    function showSlides(n) {
      var i;
      var slides = document.getElementsByClassName("mySlides");
      var dots = document.getElementsByClassName("dot");
      if (n > slides.length) {
        slideIndex = 1
      }
      if (n < 1) {
        slideIndex = slides.length
      }
      for (i = 0; i < slides.length; i++) {
        slides[i].style.display = "none";
      }
      for (i = 0; i < dots.length; i++) {
        dots[i].className = dots[i].className.replace(" active", "");
      }
      slides[slideIndex - 1].style.display = "block";
      dots[slideIndex - 1].className += " active";
    }
