    I am trying to use the FOREVER theme word press blog but when I activate it it doesn’t give me the same options like the front page with the slide show or the 4 pictures on the bottom and I was wondering if anyone could tell me why or how can I do it so it comes exactly the same :)

    Do I have to pay extra for that?

    I just activate it on mine but it looks just like a simple blog without the slide and the other picture :S please feel free to look at my blog :)

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

    You simply have to read the theme description and follow what’s there.

    To show only your four latest posts (with a Featured Image above each one, of course) in a neat grid on your home page just visit Appearance → Theme Options and click the checkbox there.

    Please go here > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/forever/

    Featuring posts in a slider on your home page is easy. You just need sticky posts with Featured Images. Every sticky post you have (up to 10) that has a Featured Image (at least 888 pixels wide) attached will show up there.

    Note that Optimal size for featured images is: width 888px, height maximum 355px.

    It’s not a slideshow. Its a featured post slider.

    The instructions above are correct and I can ascribe to that because I have used this same theme. You need to go over the instructions step by step to locate what you are doing wrong or not doing.

    They post slider will contain featured paosts. It will not automatically advance. The visitors have to click to advance the post slider.

    Hi Timethief,

    You seem to know a lot about the Forever theme. I changed the background color for a slideshow to “white” from “black” but it still shows up as black. Do you know why?

    Thanks,
    Ed
