Featured post slideshow on Trition Lite

  1. Every featured post you want in the post slider must be
    (1) a sticky post
    (2) have a featured image set
    (3) and the featured image be at least 950 pixels in width and 270 pixels in height.

  2. Thank you, now I try!

  3. You're welcome.

  4. I followed the instruction but it still doesn't show.. maybe I did something wrong

  5. 1. Did you presize the featured images in the featured posts so they were the correct size before you uploaded them? Teatured image be at least 950 pixels in width and 270 pixels in height.

    2. Did you set each image in each featured post using this guide?

    3.. Did you set each featured post to be a sticky post? http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts

    Triton Lite Theme Showcase page.
    The theme has a dynamic featured post area (shown just below the site title on the home page) which is a snap to use: just add featured images—at least 950 pixels in width and 270 pixels in height—to your Sticky Posts

  6. Great! Thank you very much, I was skipping a thing in the feature image window!

  7. It's good to hear you have accomplished this now. happy blogging! :)

  8. Hi,

    Great theme..the featured post slideshow is working perfectly. But is there a way to change the order of the posts appearing there? As in can I control which images appear first, which second and so on?

    Thanks

  9. When a post is in the post slider does, does the post no longer appear below it with the other normal posts? Anyway for it to show on post slider and the normal post area?

    Oh and very impt to making the post slider work is to go to themes and customise ur theme, and make sure ur make ur home page non-static.

  10. @lipuster, it is not possible to control the order of the posts in the slider at this time. Posts are arranged in descending order by date inside the slider (so, most recent sticky post first).

    @sarahfrancy, when a post appears in the slider, it will not appear inside the main post listing. It is not possible for posts to appear in both places, because this is how Triton Lite was designed.

  11. I'm trying to set this theme up for a client of mine which is a self hosted site. I have:
    • the featured images set (correctly sized)
    • correctly sized
    • set to sticky
    • with show posts selected as the landing page
    -- so all settings correct.

    What am I missing? Because it's self-hotsed is there a snippet of code I need to change somewhere?
    Thanks!

  12. Should have mentioned, the site is: http://www.limestoneforge.com - he's a blacksmith. Cheers!

  14. Okey Doke. tnx!

  15. You're welcome.

  16. I see the moving slider here: http://tritonlite.towfiqi.com/

    Can I activate that for my blog at http://www.goodlifenoalcohol.wordpress.com?

  17. Hi jazzloonz,

    You can activate the featured slider in Triton Lite by creating Sticky posts with Featured Images that are at least 950 pixels in width and 270 pixels in height.

    Hope this helps!

  18. My 'slider' works. My question should have been stated: Can I make the images automatically shuffle? Am I saying that right? Mine are numbered but don't slide as they do here.

  19. The post slider on our version of the Triton Lite theme at wordpress.com does no automatically advance.

  20. This the the relevant theme description for the WordPress.com version of the theme > http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
    This is the relevant live demo site > http://tritonlitedemo.wordpress.com/

    Can I make the images automatically shuffle?

    No you can't.

  21. @ timethief. Once again you've helped me. Thank you so much!
