How to get hero slider showing up?

  1. hero feature slider not showing up. I have added 3 tags, and set the promo 1/2/3 i believe the home promo is already showing up, along with the tagline area and link.

    but the main feature slider is not working. How do i get it up?
    i've set up a static welcome page, and set the template as the front page. i've uploaded a feature image for this page too.

    what else do i need to do? how can i get a few images on the slider, with the different text for each picture?

    thank you.

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

  2. Have you consulted the theme description? http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/hero/
    Post sliders do not display unless the featured images are the exact dimensions required by the theme.

    Featured Content Slider: Use the ‘Featured Content’ options under Settings → Reading to select a tag for your featured content slider. Use this tag on posts with a featured image, and they’ll show up in the slider.

  3. Thank you time thief, for your quick reply. yes i have read a number of threads and also the theme description. i didnt understand what i was reading,but with a little persistence and trialling i did manage to get it working. one thing i took note of, was the exact dimensions required. thanks for highlighting that to me.

    cheers.
