    Hey, i just purchased the Magazine premium theme for wordpress.com and already assimilated that the carousel feature is not available. The demo I’ll relate to is the next one:
    http://magazinedemo.wordpress.com/

    Been trying for several hours and read ALL of the post on this page, but still can’t manage to do the next things:

    1.- In the demo version of the theme you have 4 features (celebrities, music, movies and sports), even in the 2nd feature you used sub-categories. How can I manage to do that? I mean, I do not get how to make that page within a page thing, is it on the widgets zone? is it on the pages? menus?…need a detailed info please.

    2.- In the main page you have like a short version of each one of those features like in columns. How can I do that?

    3.- I just checked the next blog: http://majedsblog.wordpress.com/ and it’s something like Im trying to do. Can’t manage to do it. A little advice?

    Please DO NOT send me to read the sticky post at the top of the page since I read it over and over and still don’t get how to make my page actually look like the demo you’re showing. I’m not an english born speaker or reader so I guess that makes it difficult for me, but Im a fast learner, just not a web designer at all. Please Help!!

    Thx in advance.

    The blog I need help with is musickness.net.

    Plus, I bought the theme from wordpress.com and not from your site, then I discover that for $4 more bucks i could’ve get the genesis framework, what can I do to get it and what kind of benefits will I get with that. Thx

    Hey! Since I’m answering my own questions (hehe) I managed to do the Menu thing and it was pretty easy, so I’m sorry to bother you with that Im-too-lazy-to-look question.
    There’s a topic that’s causing me troubles thou. In the Main Page (home) how can I put the “More of that stuff…” thingy like in the demo version. I mean, so that the last post is the one visible with a thumbnail and the rest of the post in that “Home Left/Right” section shows a “read more news (ie)”
    Unless I discover that myself in this afternoon, ty in advance.

    The genesis framework is working in the backend with the Magazine child theme. :)

    Make sure you were looking here at wordpress.com and not at the self-hosted information.

    1.- In the demo version of the theme you have 4 features (celebrities, music, movies and sports), even in the 2nd feature you used sub-categories. How can I manage to do that?

    You need ot have a bunch of posts created and categorized. Then you place the Featured Posts widgets in the home page areas and pick the categories of posts you wish to show.

    All the rest of the questions relate to the settings on the Featured Posts widgets. :)

    Just drag one in place and try the options.
