    Hi

    I am doubting if I have the theme installed correctly.

    My Theme Options area does not look anything like the one in your video. Mine is just a vertical list of Logo & Header, Layout Options, Blog, Hero Slider, Featured Content, Footer, with their boxes.

    Where do I see what version I have and how do I make sure that it is appropriately installed?

    The blog I need help with is: affectiveaction.com

    It sounds like you were looking at the theme demo on Press75.com. The Debut theme is slightly different for WP.com (WordPress hosted) vs. Press75.com (self-hosted). You are using WP.com, so you should be looking at and referencing it’s demo and content.

    Ok Thanks,

    My site is AffectiveAction. I am having a really hard time getting any images to appear in posts or anywhere. I have read and followed the steps in the instructions but somehow the images I upload show up on the library and in the page/post creation pages of the Dashboard, but do not show up on the site. Any thoughts?

    If you are wanting to show a image Gallery, you can follow the information for creating and inserting WordPress Galleries:

    To get images to show as thumbnails on the site, you will need to set a Featured Image. You can read up on how to add a featured image here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/#setting-a-featured-image

    Hi Luke,

    Last night at around 2AM I finally made the Featured Image breakthrough! In case others have the same problem, think that I was doing everything except clicking the Add to Post button. I was thinking that that was only for adding an image in the post rather than setting it as the Featured image. Once I pressed both, the images started to show up.

    I have one more question but I’ll add that as another inquiry so it is visible in case it is helpful to others.

    Regards,

    Taia

    Featured images are set by clicking on “Set as Featured Image”. Once that is done, the image is set and the option disappears. From there, you can also choose “Insert into Post”, which does just that.

    Hi! like many others, I’m trying to get my ‘home’ page to look like the Debut home page. i cannot figure out how to do the grid format to display all of my posts. i have figured out how to create a gallery within a post but not how to have my recent posts displayed on a home page in grid/gallery style. hope this makes sense.
    thanks!
