Hello Superhero themers! I love the Superhero theme and have been trying to implement it on my new WordPress site. I followed the instructions posted elsewhere in this support to add Jetpack, and then added the tag "featured" to Settings > Featured Content. I've added the "featured" tag to several posts, and on those posts, also set the banners I created (each are png files and greater than 1200px wide) as the "Featured Image" for those posts. For whatever reason, the featured content slider will not display on my home page, though the "featured image" is displaying full-width in the posts themselves. Can anyone help with this? It looks like I'm not the only one having issues with the slider, but so far I've followed all of the instructions I could find.
When I edited the original theme example posts, two of my tests displayed temporarily. But I deleted the sample posts and have not been able to "bring the slider back" since. I can't find any other options for managing the display of the theme's Featured Content via the home page slider, or any way to specify that the slider should be there. Does it matter whether your home page is set to a static page or list of posts? (Well, I've tried it both ways with no success, so i'm guessing that isn't it.) I am new to WordPress but comfortable with code edits and FTP, if that helps my case!
Here's my web site:
I chose this theme primarily for the slider, and am really hoping someone can help!
