    I have tried marking a post ‘Sticky’ and even though it is marked ‘Sticky’, it won’t show on the front page in my featured slide bar

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

    What is the URL starting with https:// of the post you refer to please? How many sticky posts have you placed in the slider? The maximum is 6. And did you set a featured image of the exact required dimensions in the post in question?

    Featured Slider
    The Showcase Page template offers a featured slider for up to six Sticky Posts that have a Featured Image at least 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.

    Here is the direct link to the post I am referring to. I only have 6 posts, this one included, marked “sticky”. The featured image size may be the issue. I’ll look into that.

    The featured image size may be the issue. I’ll look into that.

    The featured image dimensions are critical to display.

    Image size was the problem. Thanks!
