    For my Sight theme I cannot get the slider to work or even appear. I read other forums and the options they are giving to help are not even available to me. There is no “enable slider/slideshow button” on my screen and I have looked everywhere for answers. Is this option not available to me because I have the free account? If you log in to my account maybe you will see what I am talking about.

    The blog I need help with is theprorev.wordpress.com.

    Never allow anyone to login to your account ever. I have used this theme and if I had $10 for every time someone has said it does’nt work when it does I would be rich.

    Theme description: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/sight/
    This is the live demo that applies to us at WordPress.com http://sightdemo.wordpress.com/

    This theme has a featured post slider and that’s what you see on the demo site ie. on the demo site but I do not see it on your blog.

    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.

    Setting a Featured Image http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/#setting-a-featured-image
    If you don’t see the Featured Image module on your Add New or Edit Post page, please make sure you’ve selected Featured Image in your Screen Options. http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options

    I did that…followed all those directions. My image is 436×290. I read some things where people said go through the theme option and select enable slider or something like that and that option is not even available to me….like I feel like I’m at the point where I should just change themes.

    I tried to make my image those exact dimensions but it will not let me, like it always adjusts itself
