After reading the description many times over and the existing threads, I've all but given up on this template. I now have 2 posts that are both published and sticky with featured images that are larger than 888px but there is no image slider on home.
I originally had many posts but I read somewhere that all posts with sticky had to have that featured large image, so I removed all but 2 posts to isolate the problem. Still nothing.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
The blog I need help with is ann-n-dave.com.
