Slider on Fresh&Clean theme, can change automatically?

  1. I was wondering if there's anything I can do to make the slider on the home page of my blog (using the theme Fresh and Clean currently) change automatically so I see one post featured first, and then it changes to the next one, showing the featured image for that second blog. On the theme Skylark works just this way –without me having to do anything. Is there any option I have to click/ way around to work this out?

    Thanks in advance!

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

  2. The slider does not automatically advance.

  3. I have a similar question, but about Skylark. I switched to that theme because it seems to have a slider, but I can't get it to work. Are there instructions anywhere?

    While searching the themes, I saw another (Forever) that also has an automatically changing image. Is there a way to search for these without having to look at all 190 themes?

    Thanks in advance! Hope you can help me. : )

  4. There isn't a way to change the post slider in the Forever theme version at WordPress.com to advance the slider automatically, and CSS editing cannot be used to change how any theme functions. It can only be used to alter appearance. These are the some themes we have that have post sliders http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/post-slider/ Only four themes that I know of have a featured post slider that automatically advances Debut, Currents, On Demand, Modularity Lite. (the first 3 are premium themes) and the last one is a free theme.

  5. Hi Timethief,

    Thanks for the quick reply--much appreciated!

    I'm not clear. I guess I need to make sure I'm using the right terminology. On the "sample" page of a theme in the theme directory, is the changing image called a slider? For example, the Forever theme seems to rotate three images. (I'm guessing it's called a slider because it looks like a slide show.)

    The Skylark theme also changes images. Whatever that function is, I'd like to make it work. So, my first question is: where are the instructions to do so?

    My other newbie question is: is there a glossary of terms somewhere?

    You've helped me before and I've seen you give lots of answers to others--I hope you can help me again!

  6. Hi there,
    Yes those are featured post sliders.
    These are all the themes that have post sliders http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/post-slider/
    Skylark theme description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/skylark/
    live demo site http://skylarkdemo.wordpress.com/

  7. Post sliders--got it! Thanks. I found the instructions and have been plugging away.

    One last question: the Home page doesn't show up in the list of pages. How does one make edits (like renaming it) on the Home page?

    Thanks again for all your quick help!
