    We cannot get the slider to work on the theme we purchased for use on wordpress.com.

    Part of the guidance given by interetinter via this post says “says 2) Assign the ‘Home’ page template”
    However, the page templates on offer are only showing as ‘Default’ and ‘Fullwidth Page’

    We are re-posting this as we never received a response in the above thread.

    As a result we cannot get the slider to work. We now appear to have a premium theme that doesn’t do what we paid for.

    Please advise?

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is: stalbanscommunityassoc.wordpress.com

    Hi,

    The process is as follows:

    1) Navigate to Pages > Add New, and create a new page with the ‘Home’ page template assigned
    2) Navigate to Posts > Add New, and create new posts with a specific tag assigned (this will specify these posts as slider posts), e.g. ‘slideshow’
    3) Navigate to Settings > reading, and set the page you created in step #1 as your static ‘Home’ page. At the same time, set your ‘Featured Content’ tag to the same tag created in step #2.
    4) Refresh your homepage, and you should see the homepage as per the demo.

    The slider / homepage work, because you’re using the same source files that the demo uses (so it’s impossible for there to be disparity between the demo and your site).

    When I look at your site right now, you aren’t using the Organization Theme. Is it possible you have the wrong theme activated, or that you’re asking for help in the wrong theme forum?

    As you can see from this image screenshot we have Infoway activated on this website and not the Organization theme.

    You state “1) Navigate to Pages > Add New, and create a new page with the ‘Home’ page template assigned”

    However, the page templates on offer are only showing as ‘Default’ and ‘Fullwidth Page’. There is no ‘Home’ option displayed.
