Tried to ask a related question on the old thread, but that's now been closed.
So, I can set up a blog template page but need to a slider plugin. Can I get the same slider as the one in the original Leaf theme? Or do I have to go through all the available ones here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=slider
If I download a plugin, how do I add it to the blog template page (and not the other pages)?
