    Hi all!

    I have been scouting around worpress theme for awhile and am a little overwhelmed. I am looking for a theme which supports a slideshow header, and displays posts below that header as such (seinnagausman.com/wordpress) if you click the link that is my testsite and the theme being used is photoria.

    The problem I am having with this theme is that it includes every single post on the front page and I do not want it to, for as the site grows, that would be visually unappealing in my opinion. I just want to feature 6 at the most, and I dont see anything which makes that possible within the theme.

    It also displays a little differently every time i refresh the browser window which is a big "nono" !!!

    the layout of the theme is whats importan, the sliding header and the featured posts in little boxes below (thats what the client wants)

    is there a theme that will better accomplish this and allow more control over which posts appear on the home page?

    any help is much appreciated:)

    Check out this theme: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/eclipse

    Is it close enough to what you are looking for?

    You should use Good News WordPress Theme, its magazine theme and supports all the features you mentioned.

    thanks guys!

    i have checked out both examples and both have things that i like, and things i dont. the magazine site has alooot going on while the client wants a very un-overwhelming approach (but i also know that all of the modules/widgets do not need to be used and that will clean up the look) i dont want the little thumbnails below the slideshow however, and i also dont want the featured articles to be "listed" on atop the other, rather i want them in little squares, 3 to a row. but i may be interested in that theme for another project so thanks:)

    and the eclipse one i like the slideshow header, but again the posts are stacked on atop of eachother.... :(

    the client wants a layout "just like" this: http://www.ecoliteracy.org/

    do you think this can be achieved with either theme? and if not, any other suggestions? i really appreciate your suggestions...thanks!
