    Hello, how can I used Slider on my blog? I can't find it. Thank you very much!!!!

  2. Hi there, to use the slider you'll need to install the free Jetpack plugin. This plugin activates the Featured Content module you'll need to run the slider.

    Once you've activated Jetpack, follow these steps:

    1. Navigate to Settings → Reading.
    2. Scroll down to the section labeled “Featured Content”.
    3. Enter the name of a tag.
    4. Click the blue “Save Changes” button at the bottom.
    5. Create a post with a featured image that’s at least 960px wide. (Note: The featured image will look best at a 2.88:1 width-to-height ratio, and at least 500px tall.)
    6. Give the post the tag you declared under Settings → Reading → Featured Content.

    Repeat the process for the number of featured posts you'd like.

    Let know how it goes!

    Kathryn, thank you very much for this information! My problem is that I dont want to use the feature image because I cant take it off from my post :(

    Thank you!!!

  4. Hi Caroline, I'm not completely sure what you mean here - it might help if you could provide a link to your site, and show me exactly what the issue is, using a specific post as an example.

    Is it that you want the image to show up in the slider, but not appear in the post itself? If you could give me a link to your site I'd be glad to help with this.

    Hi Kathryn, I dont want that the featured image appears on the top of the post =) Now I know if I upload a big image is going to be shown and if I put a small image it wont be shown. Its solved now :) Thank you very much

  6. Glad this is all sorted. If you need help with anything else, feel free to start a new thread.
