    Excuse me, I’ve just used your theme, but I cant manage to use both featured slider together with my latest posts. Can you please help me? My site is at What I need is a template like (upper to lower) breaking news – logo – menu – featured slider – latest post – footer.

    If my question needs to know about CSS, can you show me too?

    Thank you in advanced.

    Hello there,
    Thank you for writing.

    Yes, slider could be a bit tricky.

    Everything needs to be ok in order to make it works. Firstly, try to set up the featured content again following the instructions

    1. Go to Appearance → Customize, and set a tag under Tag Name in Featured Content.
    2. Save changes
    3. Tag some posts with your new tag
    4. Make sure to give to these posts a featured image.

    If this doesn’t work, some users have had the following issues:

    1. Some of them have added the tag “featured” – but including the quote marks.
    Solution: NOT to add the quote marks and just add the word itsels.

    2. It looks like some users selected a static front page, but they hadn’t selected *which* page they want to appear on the front page, nor have they selected a page on which your blog posts should be displayed. This is very likely interfering with the slider display.

    See this screenshot:

    If you want to display the slider above your other posts — like on the Rosalie demo site — please try selecting the “Your latest posts” button below “Front page displays” instead of “A static page”.

    Let me know if that gets the slider appearing!

    Thank you again,
