Showcase Template on Oxygen
I have uploaded my new template of Oxygen, but I can’t get the showcase template to appear in my page properties… I think this is why the slider with sticky posts won’t work… if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. my site is: http://www.momentscapturedyoung.com
The blog I need help with is mcyphotography.wordpress.com.
The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page “Welcome“ for your site and a “Blog” page for posts. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/
Showcase page template
When you first activate Oxygen, you’ll see your posts in a traditional blog format but if you’d like to showcase your content in an online magazine-like fashion, then you can use the Showcase Page template.
The Showcase Page template offers a featured slider for Sticky Posts. To use the template, create or edit a page, and assign it to the Showcase Page template from the Page Attributes module. If you’d like use the Showcase Page template on your front page, go to Settings → Reading and set the Front page option to Static Page. Select the page you just assigned the Showcase Page template to as your front page and then choose another page to serve as your blog page.
Oxygen featured post slider:
Sticky post thumbnails are 750 pixels wide in the featured slider
Regular post thumbnails are 450 pixels wide

How do i get my posts to show under recent articles and more articles?
Thank you timethief, however unfortunately the option for “Showcase” does not appear in my Page Attributes Template… I can only see: Default, Archives, Bookmark, Front Page, and Full Width.
Did I do something to turn this off by chance?
I truly appreciate your patience!
