    Hello everybody,

    I want to use the Sight Theme because it looks very good, and I want to use the slideshow but I don’t know how to do it.

    How can I activate the slideshow ?
    Is it free ?

    Thanks for your forthcomings answers.

    You are saying “slideshow” but in fact I think you mean post slider. This theme has a featured post slider and that’s what you see on the demo site.

    Featured Slider
    Sight displays up to 30 of your latest sticky posts that have featured images in a prominent slider on the front page. To add a post to the slider, mark it as sticky http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/#sticky-posts and give it a featured image.
    Sight featured images
    Large: 640 x 290 in the Sticky posts slider
    Small: 290 x 290 thumbnails are used on the home, category, tag, archives, and search pages.

    Follow the instructions carefully and you will succeed. I know that you will because I used that theme until yesterday when I switched.

    Thank you! That information really helped me just now. I have another problem/question though: is there a way to set it so my sticky posts are also listed below the slider, under “latest posts”? As of right now, any posts I have selected as sticky appear only in the slider.

    Thanks.

    Hi there! This is intentional, to prevent duplication of posts between the slider and the rest of the posts on the home page. It is not possible to Sticky a post and have it appear in both places. Hope this clears things up.
