    I would like to have a static front page on selecta theme where a number of sticky posts are shown, all other posts go to an archive page. when i select the archive page to have posts and a static ‘front’ page then nothing is displayed on the front page, the only way i can get the post slider to work on the front page is to select ‘front page displays – your latest posts’ under settings and reading, which then puts a post under the slider and nothing in the archive, how can i have a post slider on a static front page with some sticky posts in it and all other posts on another page please?

    It’s not possible to compel a theme to do what’s it’s not designed to do. You cannot have a post slider on a static front page.

    With a featured posts slider on the front page, a wide, one-column template on image and video posts, and archives and search results displayed in gallery format, Selecta is well-suited for blogs that focus primarily on showcasing videos or images.

    are there any themes on wordpress that will give me a post slider on a static front page with video sticky posts in it with previews of the vidoes and all other posts on another page?

    I actually have been trying to find a theme at .com that has a post slider on a static front page. So far I haven’t found one–does anyone know of one I might have missed?

    The themes that have Showcase page templates are the ones to look at. Oxygen is one of them.
