    Hello –
    I read the forum thread with miltonlauphotography.com posted in February 2017 and I thought I followed the directions exactly, but I am still not getting a slideshow on my home page. I am thoroughly flustered! Like the previous poster – I purchased this theme because of the slideshow and want my home page to look exactly how it is featured, but I am not able to manage this! Please help! Thanks in advance :)

    The blog I need help with is lesixteenth.com

    Hello!

    It looks like you may not have a category of posts assigned for the homepage slideshow. What you’ll want to do is make sure you have posts created which have a featured image and then assign these posts to one specific category, .e.g ‘featured’. Then navigate to the theme options from your WP Admin (https://lesixteenth.wordpress.com/wp-admin/) by going to Appearance > Theme Options and assign a category of posts to the Slideshow Category. Once this is in place you should see the featured images of each posts assigned to this category display in the slider.

    Let me know if you’re still having trouble with this.

    Thanks!

    Hello – I tried your directions and I still could not get the slideshow to work. After many attempts and much time spent on this theme with no positive results, I have decided to switch to a different, more user friendly theme. Thanks.
