    I can’t get the Untitled Theme to work — the front image slider instructions (here: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/untitled/) do not work. I have followed them all step-by-step. I would like my site (see above – it’s hosted by WordPress) to look like the demo site http://untitleddemo.wordpress.com/.

    I’ve done this several times (to make sure I didn’t do anything wrong):

    To set up Untitled’s Front Page Slider:

    Navigate to Settings → Reading.
    Scroll down to the section labeled “Featured Content”.
    Enter the name of a tag.
    Click the blue “Save Changes” button at the bottom.
    Create a post with a featured image that’s at least 1024px wide.
    Note: The featured image will look best at these dimensions: 1440px wide, 400px tall.
    Give the post the tag you declared under Settings → Reading → Featured Content.

    What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this? It looks not so great right now!

    Help!

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is nuslblogs.org.

    @desabendung: Study the instructions more carefully. Your featured image is large enough, so your problem is probably the tag business. Did you enter a word in Settings → Reading → Featured Content? Did you add the same word as a tag to your post?

    Yes, I did. I’ve followed the instruction written on http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/untitled/ but it’s still not working.

    What’s the word you’ve entered in Settings → Reading → Featured Content → Tag name?

    Hey, it’s really the tag name after all. I messed the post tag, that’s why it didn’t appear on the slider. Thank you for helping me! :)

    You need the Jetpack plugin installed in order to see these options.
