    You don’t have the Showcase Template set on http://dunkdad.wordpress.com/ yet.

    First, you need to set a static front page. Then, edit that page and choose the Showcase Template from the Page Attributes box to the right (this is seen when editing the page).

    If you do not see the Page Attributes box, open the Screen Options tab near the top-right (while still editing the page) and check “Page Attributes”.

    Okay, I’ve set a static front page. I went to reading and chose static page. I then chose the page with the 750 pix wide image as the featured image. Then I chose the page attribute box to showcase template and hit save…

    Then, I logged out and visited my website…

    No featured slider, no showcase template. Just all my posts messed up on the page.

    You have not set the desired page as your front page.

    Also, please don’t bump your threads. With the amount of users around who need help, we usually need more than 7 minutes to leave a reply.

    Ok, sorry. But what does bumping my threads mean… And thanks, I will try the method and update this string later.

    But what does bumping my threads mean.

    I’m referring to the reply with simply the number 2 that you added 7 minutes after replying.

    This is a common tactic to bump your thread up to the front of the line (which is actually the back of the line since we work from oldest to newest), and it is not allowed here.

    I’ve tried that and still won’t work. Isn’t there a way where I can just choose which posts to put on the featured slider and they just show up. Why so complicated??

    You still have not yet set the page as a static front page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    Once you do, the Showcase page will appear in front. Then, Sticky posts with Featured Images that are at least 750 pixels in width will appear in the slider.

    Once you have set the front page to your About page, see this for further details: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/oxygen/
