    Hi all,

    Wonder if you can help me. I've worked out how to get the slider working on the Oxygen theme. I'd like to have the featured posts on the slider as my recent articles - any idea how to do that?

    Thanks,

    Claire

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

  2. Hi there! To answer your question, there is currently no option to display more than three "Recent Articles" on the Showcase Page template. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/oxygen-more-than-3-recent-articles-possible?replies=8#post-927072

    In Oxygen you can either have a Home page that displays your posts or a static front page ie. a Showcase template.

    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. ...

    Sticky post thumbnails are 750 pixels wide in the featured slider
    Regular post thumbnails are 450 pixels wide

    "I can't find the 'Page Attributes' module for my 'Oxygen' theme"

    To create a showcase template, you need to go to Pages > Add New. That's the dashboard screen that should be displaying the Page Attributes module. If it isn't, you click Screen Options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ while on that screen (the page editor screen): and include all the Pages and Posts modules. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules each dashboard screen has different screen options.

  3. Note: In Oxygen, there is no way to show posts in both the post slider and the recent articles area. It's been designed to not to have duplicated posts on the page.
