Need help with the Oxygen slider…

    I’ve had a look at this page http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen/

    but when i go into editing a page to create a sticky I can’t change the template for the pages I want to use in the slider to showcase and the “page attributes” aspect of the editing settings isn’t anywhere to be seen.

    anyone have any ideas why the “page attributes” part isn’t anywhere to be seen and how I can get it back up?

    Greatly appreciated.

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

    Oxygen Theme Description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen Live demo site http://oxygendemo.wordpress.com/

    In Oxygen you can either have a Home page that displays your posts or a static front page ie. a Showcase template. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/#setting-up-a-static-front-page

    Showcase page template
    When you first activate Oxygen, you’ll see your posts in a traditional blog format but if you’d like to showcase your content in an online magazine-like fashion, then you can use the Showcase Page template. …

    Post thumbnails are 470 pixels wide, unless you make the post Sticky to show off in the featured slider, in which case they’re 750 pixels wide. Keep in mind: if you mark a post as Sticky but the featured image is less than 750 pixels wide, then it won’t display in the slider and will still disappear from the river of posts. Please be aware that you cannot crop the sticky post thumbnails.

    If you don’t see the page attributes module then make sure that you don’t have it hidden in your screen options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/
    Modules to unhide:
    Post – Likes and Shares, Format*, Categories, Tags, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments**, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper
    Page – Likes and Shares, Page Attributes, Featured Image, Discussion, Comments**, Page Revisions, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper

    So, I found page attributes for the page part but not the post… I’m struggling to find how I can change the lay out of the homepage to accomodate the slider?

    If you want the slider then you have to create a static front page and choose the Showcase template. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/#setting-up-a-static-front-page

    I’ve read all the links above, I have set-up a static front page as my home page, created sticky posts with featured images that are at least 750 pixels wide, but still nothing is displayed on my home page.

    my site is http://davidackerman1984.wordpress.com/

    Any thoughts?

    I am in the same situation as “ackers1984.” I have done all the necessary steps from all the other forum posts regarding this theme and for some odd reason, I am still coming up short.

    From what I gather all I have to do is designate certain posts to be sticky and it should work for me, right?
