Featured Image Slider on Oxygen theme

  1. Hi, it won't let me have a featured image slider on my website.

    Kidospizike.wordpress.com

    The blog I need help with is kidospizike.wordpress.com.

  2. I'm having the same challenge. I followed the instructions for creating a page, setting the page attribute to showcase, and making it the static front page. It's not working.

    And, once it does work, how do you add images? Do they just go into that same page?

  3. Please consult the detailed theme description here http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen/ There are also many threads that explain how the Oxygen theme is designed to operate.

    In Oxygen you can either have a Home page that displays your posts or a static front page ie. a Showcase template. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/#setting-up-a-static-front-page

    Showcase page template
    When you first activate Oxygen, you’ll see your posts in a traditional blog format but if you’d like to showcase your content in an online magazine-like fashion, then you can use the Showcase Page template. ...

    Post thumbnails are 470 pixels wide, unless you make the post Sticky to show off in the featured slider, in which case they’re 750 pixels wide. Keep in mind: if you mark a post as Sticky but the featured image is less than 750 pixels wide, then it won’t display in the slider and will still disappear from the river of posts.

    If you failed to upload and set a featured image of the correct dimensions in each post then until you do upload one into each one the gray box will be there.

    Please be aware that you cannot crop the sticky post thumbnails.

    Sticky post thumbnails are 750 pixels wide in the featured slider
    Regular post thumbnails are 470 pixels wide

    If you don't see the page attributes module then make sure that you don't have it hidden in your screen options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/

  4. @Timethief,

    I want my front page to look likeOxygen Page Example. It's the one from the first link. I read and followed the instructions before posting my initial question.

    No images are attaching to pages unless I insert them into a post. I tried the info re: featured pages, too. I adjusted the pic size, and it still didn't work.

    I thought the larger image was a slider with thumbnails below, but I can't figure out how to put them onto any page let alone the static "showcase" page.

    Thanks for your help. If you have any other suggestions, I'd appreciate it.

  5. I'm sorry but I am multitasking from my business. I have answered this question so many times that I'm unwilling to work through your issues with comprehending the instructions while my phone is ringing here. However, not to worry as another Volunteer or Staff will do that.

  6. @Timethief,
    Thanks. I'm finding another theme. I, too, have businesses to run and can't spend all my time trying to figure this theme out.

    I appreciate your help.

  7. I am sorry I can't work through this with you step by step but making an income is my priority right now.

    @Timethief,
    No worries. I found another theme. It's a temporary thing until I launch the main site in a month or so. And, I know the theme I'm using for that one, so it should be easier!

    Like I mentioned -- I have businesses to run, too.

    Thanks, again!

  9. Best wishes to you.
