Featured Slider Missing

  1. So I am setting up my site right now under the SKYLARK Theme, and for some reason I can not figure out how to add the featured slider in.

    I have already completed the following steps
    1. Created a page and selected "Showcase Template"
    2. Set front page option to "static page"
    3. Set the new page w/ the showcase template to the "front page"

    I have also created a few posts and made them sticky w/ featured images (you can see this in the blog section) but for some reason, there is no slider on the home page.

    Site: http://giantstepfilm.wordpress.com/
    Skylark Theme: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/skylark/

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

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

  2. The Showcase page template offers a featured slider for sticky posts. If you’d like a post to appear in the slider, mark it as sticky and assign it a featured image that’s at least 500 pixels wide.

    sticky posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts

  3. Thanks so much! The I just had to press the "make featured image" button as I was choosing an image. I thought by default all images added were featured because the button you press to add an image was "add featured image."

  4. You're welcome and best wishes for happy blogging. :)
