Slider post, sticky post,... I'm giving up

  1. Hi everyone! I recently opened my new blog. There is nothing yet and I have been trying the whole day to do the same layout that I have seen on the demo of the FOREVER theme. That is Text in the header, the menu below, the slider post with 3 or 4 pictures and a 4-column for my posts.
    I have tried everything, using sticky posts, setting pictures as featured, reading everything, forums, youtube, and there is no way I can do it. I would appreciate if someone could help me out here. Thank you so much in advance.

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

  2. The size of featured image is critical to display.

    Please go directly to the detailed Forever theme description page and follow the instructions you find there http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/forever/

    There you find instructions for "A Dramatic Personalized Home Page". http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/forever/ Live demo site. http://foreverdemo.wordpress.com/
    You need sticky posts with featured images for the slider to display.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts

    The featured image size is critical. Featured Image (at least 887 pixels wide and height 355px)
    http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/08/23/featured-images/

    To show only your four latest posts (with a Featured Image above each one, of course) in a neat grid on your home page visit Appearance → Theme Options and click the checkbox there. Thumbnail on 4-column showcase for recent posts. Width 195px, maximum height 124px (cropped if larger).

  3. The four latest posts are you four most recently published posts so they will change when you publish new posts.

    Lastly, note the Volunteers cannot view private blogs.

  4. Hi timethief, thank you for all the info. I had checked some of the links you have provided before writing in this forum. I will check again for if there is something I have missed. I am still new to this site and blog, so I will check the privacy settings.
    Thanks again!

  5. Suffice to say that what I posted is correct and if you work through it slowly step by step you will succeed.

  6. Oh I'm sure all the info you have provided is correct. It's just me that
    I'm not good at it

  7. It finally worked! Thank you so much timethief! how can i set it up as resolved?

  8. Hooray! I love happy endings
    Go to the top of this thread and select "resolved" there.

  9. Gotcha! :-)
