to your comments:
"my designated blog page"
what do you mean with that? not your homepage yeah?
"When I publish a post, it screws up my slideshow completely."
This issue is just reported and will be fixed!
Then you said:
"The slideshow to only appear on my home page."
Go to Appearance -> Theme Settings -> Slideshow -> Enable Slideshow
and set this option to "home".
** Then make sure, you set your latest blog posts as home page
and not an individual page. **
"The slideshow images to come from my gallery, weddings, events, & blog pages"
You mean several custom post types and blog posts?
The only possibility would be to use the options and choose the different post IDs.
But I am actually not really sure you can mix different post types in one slider. I think we made this working, please try it out and let me know if it works! :)
"The published posts to only appear on the designated blog page."
In this case you should maybe think about a custom homepage. means just create a page, and make it your homepage (in settings -> reading)
There you can:
- write custom content
- list posts from a certain post type or category and achieve this
- via shortcodes or
- via the list post settings when editing the single page.
Hope this helps, let me know what issues are left an if everything worked out as you wanted it.
*** Another tip: think about what is easy possible, some things need 10 times more work and often is best to just think about the content you want to present and which possibilities you got.
