I have been experimenting with the slider and have two requests/concerns/issues.
1. Is there a way to change the location of the slider from the Home Page to the Posts page?
2. Is there a way to hide the thumbnail of the featured image on the actual post and have only the 960×300 image appear in the slider?
Unfortunately the answer to both 1 and 3 is no.
Re 1: that’s very unusual; on all other themes that support a posts slider, the slider shows on the main posts page (so if you set a static page as your front and another page as your posts page, as in your case, the slider would show where you want it).
