    in a Page, I have a gallery that is a slideshow. Can I link the individual images in my slideshow to individual posts?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hello!

    It’s not possible to link the images from the gallery slideshow to a post. You would need to either use a gallery and include the link as a custom URL, however I don’t believe this is possible when using the slideshow.

    The featured slideshow included on the homepage template does give you the option to link to the posts where the featured image comes from if you wanted to look at that alternative.

    Thank you,

    Rebecca

    Hello,

    The use the homepage featured slideshow, you would follow these steps:

    1) Create a new page and assign it to the Home Page Template.
    2) Navigate to Appearance > Customize > Front and assign this page to the Static Front Page.
    3) Create a new category, Posts > Category
    4) Create new posts and assign these to the category created in #3. Make sure you upload a featured image to these posts as this is the image which displays on your homepage slider.
    5) Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options and assign the category created in #3 to the Slideshow category.

    Thank you!

    thank you, worked beautifully.

    one last question: how to add date on posts so that readers can see what date the post was written

    Hello!

    Glad to hear that worked for you. :)

    The date on posts should automatically be added above the posts in the blog roll. Are you not seeing this?

    Thank you!
