Help!! How do i get a slide show on my home page?

  1. I have the sight theme (http://sightdemo.wordpress.com/ ) I choose it because of the slide show on the home page. But i can't seem to get this with my own page.

    Can somebody explain to me how i can get this?? I tried the explanation on the support page but can't get this type of slide show. I just can find how to add a slide show. But i want the same as on the demo with tekst on the side and when you click on it you get to the page.

    Tnx\!!

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

  2. Have you read the theme description?
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/sight/
    I think you are referring to the featured post slider and it's not a slideshow. Slideshows are embedded into post and pages.

  3. This is the live demo that applies to us at WordPress.com http://sightdemo.wordpress.com/

    This theme has a featured post slider and that's what you see on the demo site ie. on the demo site but I do not see it on your blog.

    Featured Slider
    Sight displays up to 30 of your latest sticky posts that have featured images in a prominent slider on the front page. To add a post to the slider, mark it as sticky http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts and give it a featured image.
    Sight featured images
    Large: 640 x 290 in the Sticky posts slider
    Small: 290 x 290 thumbnails are used on the home, category, tag, archives, and search pages.

    If you don’t see the Featured Image module on your Add New or Edit Post page, please make sure you’ve selected Featured Image in your Screen Options. http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options

  4. Thank you! I have read the theme discription but think i overlooked the explanation giving. I'm going to try this.

  5. I got 1 picture with as a post slider but can't seem to get another picture as a post slider. Any ideas??

    Is the explanation available in Dutch?

  6. See here please Nederlands (Dutch): http://nl.forums.wordpress.com

  7. The explanations are not in dutch :( just the forum.

    I got 1 picture with as a post slider but can't seem to get another picture as a post slider. Any ideas??

  8. It's featured posts marked as sticky posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts that are key here and the featured images you set in them must be the exact dimensions the theme requires (Large: 640 x 290 in the Sticky posts slider). How many featured posts set as sticky posts have you published with featured images of the correct dimensions set in them?

  9. I have tried diffrent pictures and even the same picture but it doesn't work. I followed the steps explained but can get more than that 1 picture

  10. How many posts have you published?

  11. I have posted 2

  12. What is the other URL for the second published post?
    Please post it here.

  13. I have post the both URL's of my published post. Does anybody have an anwer how to get the second one on the homepage?
