    Hi! I was having this issue earlier, and it continues to happen. No matter what word I choose to tag the featured posts (to make them appear in the slider), every few days a few of the posts stop showing up on the slider. When I check on them, I discover that the tag I used has also removed itself from that post. How can I resolve this? Thanks!

    Hi Amanda,

    I’m not quite sure how this issue is related to the theme, so I suspect it may possibly be an issue with WordPress. I will look into this further, but in the meantime I will check with WordPress support to see if they have any insight as to why this is happening.

    Hi there – As Emily suspects, this is not a theme issue. There is a known bug, where the featured-content tag can go missing. Unfortunately, it’s been very challenging to pin down fix, though we do have a developer working on it. We’ll keep you posted here. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Ah, ok, thanks for the update! We’re actually looking at doing a whole theme overhaul in the next few months – is this an issue that’s happening on multiple themes then?

    Yes, it is affecting sites running a cross-section of themes, both free and premium – it’s a database glitch in the tag taxonomy itself. It’s affected a couple of dozen sites across WordPress.com, regardless of theme.

    This issue should be fixed on your site. All posts tagged “featured” should be appearing in the Featured Content area.

    Just let me know if you notice any other issues.

    Glad to hear it, Amanda! I will mark this thread as “resolved” for now :)

    I am still having this issue, when I tag a page as “feature” it will disappear after awhile.

    aimeebaerg – sorry about that. We still need to work out a fix for pages (as opposed to posts) and apply the fix to sites running plugins. We’ll keep you posted.
