    How do I active the main image slider area?

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

  2. Hi. This is explained in the theme's description:
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/forever/ (under "A dramatic personalized home page")

    I read the section containing "Featuring posts in a slider on your home page is easy. You just need sticky posts with Featured Images" and selected sticky notes with a featured image and still no slider in the main image area?

    The featured images need to be 887px wide (or wider).

  5. Was hoping to hear back from someone who's used the theme successfully. Is there a size beyond which the slider doesn't work properly?? Most of my pictures are around 1200 pxls in width, and it has screwed up my entire site. I remove the photos and things go back to normal.

    Wondering how to fix this, thanks!

    I uploaded 1200 pxl size photos and the Forever Theme works perfectly on my blog/website

    Cheers

  7. Oh, Mihir, your website is beautiful!! <3

    Any idea what I can troubleshoot to see if it works? The site works PERFECTLY up until I upload featured photos and sticky them, and the second the slider comes up it crashes :( I've tried with multiple sizes... anything over 900 width causes the site to crash, anything under doesn't make the slider come up at all.

    Thanks niana21 ;)

    True. I think you need a minimum of 900 width.

    Why your site keeps crashing is a mystery to me...

    @niana21:
    a) The blog linked to yuor username is an empty blog using Freshy. Link to the blog in question please.
    b) What browser and version are you using?

  11. my blog is very new and has no content as such yet but I have the slider working I sized my pictures at 890 if that helps
    good luck

  12. I'll try that tomorrow, grump! Thanks you guys for your answers, it's late so I will play around with settings a little tomorrow and let you know!!

  13. I resized random pictures to 890px in width and uploaded to a sticky test post as featured images.

    That is the result. If someone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it. thanks!

  15. Oh okay, thank you! I wasn't able to find a workaround for it so I'm just going to go without the slider for now I guess :)

  16. The bug with only one post and it being featured should be resolved now. Thanks for letting us know about it.

    I read all your comments and believe me it helps. but can someone post the steps to how to get the Slider. please!!

    Featuring posts in a slider on your home page is easy. You just need sticky posts with Featured Images. Every sticky post you have (up to 10) that has a Featured Image (at least 887 pixels wide) attached will show up there. Easy!

    Note that Optimal size for featured images is: width 888px, height maximum 355px.

    ohh okay thanks! :)

  20. You're welcome and happy blogging! :)

    To clarify "optimal": images narrower than 888px won't show up, images larger than 888x355 will be cropped.

  22. themeshaper, I am having the same problem with not having any sticky posts with featured images show up (even if images are the correct 887 px + sizes) - I am using Firefox on a Mac, but I don't think that is the issue....

    Help?

  23. To be more detailed - the are just appearing as the first posts at my site - not as in a slider as the Forever theme describes....

    I will do without the slider for now until I can figure it out with your assistance :)

    Thanks!
