    Hi,

    I am a beginner to this so these questions are most likely rather simple. I am trying to initially set up the homepage like the demo except single column with sidebar.

    The feature content slide show is not appearing on my home page. I have followed the steps in https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/tdeditor/support/
    and set up the static home page and blog page. I used the tag “featured” and tagged two test blog posts.

    Also I was wanting to set up the Display recent category posts on the home page. I cant find “appearance – widgets” but when I go to “customize – widgets” I only have widget options for the sidebar and the footer.

    I assume you want access to the site to see what is going on, will that require changing the site visibility setting? It is currently set to private.

    Thanks,

    Colin

    The blog I need help with is twohandsmagazine.com.

    Hello Colin,

    “The feature content slide show is not appearing on my home page. “
    – Could you please set your site to public for a moment. So, I can see what’s the problem.

    “cant find “appearance – widgets””
    – It should located in your Dashboard: https://twohandsmagazine.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    Hello Colin,

    When I visit your homepage, it looks like the page is using a default template. In order to display Featured Content and Homepage widget area, you need to set a custom Homepage template. Please see “Setting up Your Pages” @ https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/tdeditor/support/
