Sight Theme Slider?

  1. For my Sight theme I cannot get the slider to work or even appear. I read other forums and the options they are giving to help are not even available to me. There is no "enable slider/slideshow button" on my screen and I have looked everywhere for answers. Is this option not available to me because I have the free account? If you log in to my account maybe you will see what I am talking about.

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

  2. Never allow anyone to login to your account ever. I have used this theme and if I had $10 for every time someone has said it does'nt work when it does I would be rich.

    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

  3. I did that...followed all those directions. My image is 436x290. I read some things where people said go through the theme option and select enable slider or something like that and that option is not even available to me....like I feel like I'm at the point where I should just change themes.

  4. I tried to make my image those exact dimensions but it will not let me, like it always adjusts itself
