    Hello,

    It looks like instead of assigning posts to a category, you have added them within the content of your homepage. You’ll need to follow these steps to set the homepage slider:

    1) Create a new page and assign to the Home Page Template.
    2) Create a new category (Posts > Category) which you will assign to all posts in the featured slider, e.g. 'Featured'.
    3) Create new posts, upload a featured image to these posts (image which displays in slider) and assign these posts to the category created in #2.
    4) Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options (you'll need to get to your WP Admin before seeing this option - moonlightmilephotography.wordpress.com/wp-admin) and assign the category you created in #2 to the Slideshow Category.
    5) Navigate to Appearance > Customize > Static Front Page and assign the page created in #1 to the Front Page of your site.

    Let me know if you are still having difficulty after following these steps.

    Thank you!
