How to activate image carousel with "STAY" theme option

  1. I would like to use an image carousel on the home page of my site using the theme "STAY". I am unable find that feature to use it on my home page. What do I do to use this feature?

    I would also like to know how to remove the search bar and archive on the side bar of the home page using this theme.

    Please let me know. Thank you.

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

  2. The Stay theme seems to be a difficult theme for a lot of bloggers to comprehend the workings of. Here's a link to the detailed theme description:
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/stay/
    Scroll down to "Home Page Template"
    See also Live demo site here http://staydemo.wordpress.com/

    You will need to follow the instructions to make the theme to look like the one in the demo. The demo is using the "Home page template" which cycles through select top level pages on your site. Create a page called for example "Home" and then set that page as the static front page for your site and create another page fro example "blog" for your posts to appear on.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page. To do that create two pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    Note: The theme has a featured page slider and image size is at least 960 wide. Ideal width for the slider is 1200px.

  3. I would also like to know how to remove the search bar and archive on the side bar of the home page using this theme.

    All themes here will display a default display that appears to contain a sample set of widgets in the sidebar and/or footer when you have not yet added any of your own. Go to Appearance > Widgets and add the widgets you desire and configure them and the default display will disappear.

    Widgets also have visibility settings we can use to determine which ones display on which pages in the blog.

  4. This is very helpful. Thanks a lot for your response. It's greatly appreciated.

  5. You're welcome and best wishes with your blog. :)

  6. Hello again,

    I'd like some help finding out whether or not there is any possible way to create two posts/blog pages using the Stay Theme? I'd to be able to submit posts on separate pages.

    Please help.

    Thank you
