Posts not appearing on featured slider.

  1. Hi. I just started blogging and i am using the oxygen theme.

    However I can't get the featured image from my stickyposts to apear in the showcase slider thing? I have tried images that are wider than 750 pixels and yet it still doesnt work?

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

  2. What are the exact pixel dimensions of the images and did you add them as the featured image via the Featured Image module in the Post Editor?

  3. Yep, I added them in the Feature Image module. The pictures i tried have been: 2816x2112 and 1499x954.

  4. And, of course, you marked those posts as "Sticky" in the Publish module? (Sorry, still need to ask.) http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts

    If you did, which posts did you mark sticky?

  5. Yes i had marked it sticky in the module, however I un marked it because it would display a large empty area where the slider would be. The arrows for the slider were visible but not the featured post.

  6. The slider in Oxygen will only display an image that has been marked as a featured image if it is at least 750 pixels wide and the post where it is marked as a featured image has to be sticky.

    Without the first two conditions (featured image at least 750 pixels wide and the featured image appears in a post marked as sticky), there will be no slider. I assume there also needs to be more than a single post for the slider to display, but I could be wrong.

    And all the above assumes that you are indeed using the special Oxygen showcase template and not the regular blog template. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen/

  7. Aha, it's working now! You were right I needed more than one sticky note! Thank you so much for your help!

  8. Looking good! Glad we got there. :) Best wishes.
