    Hi, I am new to WordPress, so my apologies for a probably obvious question.

    I am having trouble assigning a category to the hero slider in order to make an image display as a hero image on the static front page.

    In the dashboard appearance/theme options/, I see the dropdown menu to assign a category to the Hero Slider, but the only option is “uncategorized [1].” I tried creating a blog entry and giving that the category “home page” in the hopes that the dashboard would learn about the category, but that didn’t work.

    I’d appreciate any help!!

    A category will show in the list of available options if there is at least one published post in that category. I’d make sure the post in the category you are wanting to use is published. If so, that category will show as a select option.
