Firstly thanks for a very neat theme.
I would like to know if there is a way to allocate images to the slider, but for the posts to NOT appear on the blog.
Basically what I've done is created empty posts (titled 1-5) each with featured images to show up on the slider. But now these posts are obviously being displayed. Setting them to private naturally hides the images to whomever is not registered; if they are, they see the blank posts.
Any other feasible workarounds?
