Problem with homepage moving to Sight theme

    Hi there,

    I’m trying to change theme from Oxygen to Sight, however, when I preview, and actually activate this theme, the homepage does not display correctly (just a blank page with ‘home’ as the title, as opposed to showing the slider and selection of widgets and articles etc).

    Does anyone have any idea why this might be and how I could go about using this theme correctly? I should say that the theme appears to work in all other aspects, EXCEPT the homepage.

    The site is http://urbankulturblog.com

    Many thanks in advance
    Steven

    The blog I need help with is urbankulturblog.com.

    You’ve probably forgotten that the special Oxygen homepage requires creating a blank page, selecting the showcase template for it, and setting that page as your front. Sight doesn’t have the same template, so when you preview or activate it you see a plain static page. In contrast to Oxygen, Sight displays the posts slider on the main posts page. So after activating it you need to go to Settings > Reading and set you front to display your latest posts.

    perfect thanks for your help!

    Is the carousel at the top selecting certain posts to display? I know oxygen displayed the ‘sticky’ posts, but not sure how its selecting them on this theme…

    thanks again!
