    and
    Show Latest Posts row on the front fage -Clicked Yes

    iternet- Heading shows & Latest Post Row is still white blank w/ titles underneath
    Google Chrome- heading does not show-has an error tile & Latest Post Row is still white blank w/ titles underneath
    Mozilla- Heading is totally missing & Latest Post Row is still white blank w/ titles underneath

    @mcantwell75, I apologize, I clicked on your username before and that leads to a separate blog. :)

    The “latest posts” boxes will appear empty or only display text unless you add a featured image to your posts. When you assign a featured image to a post, the image will display inside the box. Here is our documentation on adding featured images: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

    Also, you mentioned that your header image is not appearing in some browsers. It is loading fine for me when I visit your site. Can you try uploading your header image again to see if that makes a difference?

    Hope this helps!

    @wortsplitter – Slideshows should now display properly with the Selecta theme.

    Just noticed today when replying to a comment that the “rounded corners” effect is applied to the comment box as you type, cutting off the first letter. Fortunately, it doesn’t publish that way, but is a bit weird if you’re not expecting it as you type.

    Hi foggyphils,

    I’ve had a look and I’m unable to reproduce the issue. Can you post a URL of a page where this is occurring? Which browser are you using?

    Thanks!

    I’m using chrome. It happens as you are typing a comment in reply to any post.

    as the background.

    Not sure if that’s a bug, but not exactly something most people would want to happen…your name just going, “poof… and haha gotcha I didn’t really write these posts” kind of thing ;)

    @foggyphils Thanks for catching those rounded corners! The comment form should be working as expected now.

    I feel like a total idiot because I cannot figure out how to get the Featured Posts Slider on my homepage… please help!

    ntadee: For the featured posts slider to show up in Selecta, you will need to mark at least 2 posts as Sticky. I hope this helps!

    How do you do that? The hotlink didn’t work… : (

    That’s not a “hotlink”. To hotlink means to steal someone else’s bandwidth by linking to their images. That is an active link in anchor text.

    General link model:
    Type your anchor text first, highlight it with your mouse, then create the link
    <a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>

    sorry!!! I’m kind of new at this : \
    I have “Show sticky posts in a featured slider on the front page” and “Show Latest Posts row on the front page” both checked under Theme Options, how do I mark a post as sticky?

    I am vlad to see it is not me. I just go a web host, iPage, and transfer the wp files.
    Had to install the theme and I am having the following issues:
    1)Main headline says “selecta” not the name of the site
    2)Headline is not including pages
    3)Images are showing double on postings
    4)Contact form is not available

    What I don’t understand is how come this works on one environment and not the other. Look at the differences on these sites:
    Clubdelasdiosas.wordpress.com
    Clubdelasdiosas.com

    Can anyone help? I am not too tech savvy

    Anyone knows up to how many sticky posts are featured on the front page?

    anyway to limit it to the latest 5 everytime or have to unstick it manually?

    THANKS!!!!

    This site . clubdelasdiosas.com is not being free hosted by WordPress.com it’s a self hostwed WordPress.ORG install which runs on different software, has different features, and has a different version of the Selecta theme than we have here for free hosted WordPress.com blogs. The correct support forum for that blog is http://wordpress.org/support/
