    You know the image that slides across with the little dots underneath? How do I get that in my webpage?

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

    It’s theme-specific and you’re using the Forever theme, so here are the instructions from the Forever theme page:

    Featuring posts in a slider on your home page is easy. You just need sticky posts with Featured Images. Every sticky post you have (up to 10) that has a Featured Image (at least 888 pixels wide) attached will show up there. Easy!

    Once you choose your posts to highlight, make them sticky, and make sure they have a Featured Image assigned to them, they should show up automatically on your home page.

    So, I created a sticky, I put a featured image on, and nothing pops up on the main site.

    Here is what I did:

    1. Uploaded three images to each post (can I do this with a page as well? I don’t blog on this site. I just host a webpage.)
    2. Made three posts, set a featured image to each one.
    3. Made sure that each post was a sticky post.
    4. Published each post.
    5. Set each post to an image.

    What did I do wrong?

    all i see in theme options is link color or show latest posts in columns on your home page… would it be any where else. Also did you add photos to just one post, or all separate posts

    I am sorry, I just realized that you are required to work through plug-ins. That means that you need to download a plug-in off of wordpress.ORG, and follow the directions. If you have any questions, you can go on their forums for help. Furthermore, I think you get free tech support since you are a premium member. Much better than I can offer!
