Slideshow on the theme sight

  1. I've finally figured out how to make it a slide, but now I can't get it to actually slide. Only the featured picture shows up. None of my other pictures that are part of the slide actually show up. How do I get them to show up???

    Thanks!

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

  2. How many featured posts marked as sticky posts with featured images did you create? I'm asking because I use the Sight theme myself and it will auto-advance.

    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.

  3. I only have one post that's marked as sticky. And I'm still trying it out so I only uploaded two photos onto the gallary then uploaded the slideshow with only one photo marked as the featured photo.

  4. @nutritionisteats,

    It seems that you are misunderstanding what the slider does. The slider does not act like a picture gallery in a post. As timethief referenced, each slide in the slider is different post and you can show up to 30 posts. Each post can only have one Featured Image as a representation of the post.

    Hope it clarifies how the slider works.

  5. Ok I finally figured it out. Thank you so much!
