    I like this theme too so I tried it to see how it did pic for the slider and if u activate it next to it is says :

    'To display the Featured Slider in homepage, go to your post, set the Featured Images and add category name ‘Featured’. If there is no post in Featured category, the slider will not appear. Open readme.txt (included in the zip file) for more documentation.'

    Some themes have a "theme options" menu item under Appearance but not this one.

    Hope it helps u!

    Hi I have a question too about the slider.
    The slider shows the featured images from posts, but if the post is shown,
    I can see the image twice, what is not really nice.

    Does anybody know how to solve this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards, Koen

    Sometimes if u make a photo the "feature image" (not as category) and "insert" photo into post it can show 2x. Try to insert into post the one u want there and then only use category selection of "featured". There is a "featured image" on right sidebar near bottom of the edit/new post page unless it is hidden by the "screen options" tab on top next to "Help" tab. I think the slider will take from the featured category not the "Featured image" on right sidebar bottom.
    Oh and if u use the "featured photo" from sidebar it wont show in post automatically , u have to "insert" it. (most themes but not all) Most times the "featured inmage" is used for the thumbnail too and still not show in post unless u "insert it". I guess so u can have diff thumb than one in post if u want to.

    Hope this help, good luck and dont give up!

    My slider home page images also show up on my blog page. I would like the front page to be static and blog page for blog posts. Since the slider works with post featured images, how can I have a separate separate blog page with blog posts? HELP!

    @wacosta your site looks amazing! I would try to make the photos files size smaller so the will load in page faster. There is plugin to make them smaller all at once! tried to find in the plugind dir but cant remember the name of it. Maybe someone will comment w/the name of it and i think there is more than one to do it. Or just do the old way w/paint and re-upload using ftp.
    As for the slider I would try to take a look at the php and try to find the part that puts the slider on post/page and remove it from the page.php or single.php.
    Nice site and good luck.

    @givesuccess thank you for your tips. I will check the php although with a quick view I did not see the slider call out on the page.php or single.php. I'll try and figure out. cheers.

    1 thing make sure u r not using a "featured image" in the "new post" section on the bottom of rightsidebar. This theme uses featured categories for the slider but featured images are the ones that will show as the "thumbnail" for the post. It mentions thiis in the read me file in the themes dir. I cant find how the slider shows on the post pages either in the php. I am no pro tho.
    Is it the actual slider or just 1 picture showing on the post? Maybe u r seeing the "featured image" witch is not related to the featured category for the slider. Add 3-4 pages/post to the featured category then look at one of them post.. is the photo at top show slider w/all the featured categories or just the photo for that post (1 non sliding photo)

    Wow it can get confusing to write about this stuff...lol plus what aI wrote u may already know. I downld the theme and will add some random stuff to a demo site tomarrow. I like the theme too and I may want to use 1 day so I can try to figure it out for us all (maybe...lol) b4n

    @givesuccess. Yes, I need to use featured images for the nivoslider which then also shows up in the blog. For some reason, the blog page is picking up all the front page items (slider and widgets.)

    It's confusing because the images that go into the slider have to be featured images and inserted into posts.
    In my WP settings I want my posts to display in the blog with a static front page. HOW do I EXCLUDE the 4 images for the nivo slider from showing up in the blog? Anyone???

    I tried to get the same prob to happen on this site:
    http://cellphones.newcastle19720.com/ but it wont show the double photos as yours.
    Try to delete the theme files and start ovr w/new to see if maybe it got broken somehow or maybe it easier to just try different theme like: pandora 1.3.2 (demo here http://wigs.newcastle19720.com/ ) the default look might be to "busy" for you but It may work with a bit of tweaking ...and luck...lol. I like the slider with it better than brightpage's.

    Or get slider plugin and put hard coded in them removing the nivoslider php from the index page.

    If u want to mess w/the cell phone demo of brightpage theme just ask and I will give uname and pw to u can compare with yours and maybe get it to work the way u want. Or if u allow me into yours I would be happy to give it a shot to try to fix what is there.

    Best of luck 2 u !

    Wacosta, i saw this theme is new today! It has a nice slider and looks close to the brightpage one. It is free but has a paid pro version. You prob wont need the extra stuff tho.

    Hi - I changed the banner on my website to a custom image, but am seeing a white disk shape over the banner where the title used to be. How can I get rid of this spot over my banner?

    What is the url of your site? Try to remove the txt from the title and tagline from the settings page. It may be the prob but not sure. What theme is it brightpage?

    I already removed the title & tagline. The URL is http://www.squashblossomkitchens.com/blog and the theme is brightpage - thanks for your help!

    @katyandchristine

    seems to be the site title in your settings.

    Also could try to remove the background color in the css .sitetitle which is currently white and showing up.

    maybe givesuccess has other ideas.

    Maybe you can remove the code that generates the title/tagline from the header.php file. (MAKE A BACKUP OF THE FILE FIRST )In there you will see:
    <!-- BEGIN HEADER -->
    <div id="header" class="clearfix">
    <div id="header-box" class="clearfix">
    <h1 id="site-title">/" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>
    <div id="site-description"><p><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></p></div>
    </div> <!-- end div #header-box -->
    </div> <!-- end div #header -->
    <!-- END HEADER -->

    Try to remove :
    <h1 id="site-title">/" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>

    If that dont work take out the description code:

    <div id="site-description"><p><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></p></div>

    If that still dont fix, remove all between the <!-- BEGIN HEADER --> & <!-- END HEADER -->

    That is what puts the txt there (I think...lol) If all else fails just find another themes similar. I mentioned a few above. I had issues w/this theme too but I just found anopther my client liked better :)

    I like the tweaks you made to the theme. I had to look hard to recognize it. I saw a plugin for Recipes you might want to try with special templates for them. Look here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=Recipes&sort=

    Good luck with the theme issue.

    Glad 2 hear!

    u might wish to put this

    <title>Your title here</title>
    <meta name="description" content="your site description here " />
    <meta name="keywords" content="your keywords here" />

    above where u took out, in where the other "<meta" stuff is in header.php. Fill it in w/your title desc. and keywords. The title and desc. will what searches use to show your site in them. The desc can be i think up to 160 chars.
    If u use "All In One SEO" plugin it will put for u!

    Hello,

    Does anyone know how to make the image actually appear or if any weird details that are needed to have the main slider image appear?

    I've got the theme up and working with the slider appearing when I create a post with a "Featured" category. I've got it all set with relation to everything said in this thread but still no image will show up.

    If I fire bug it where the image should be it says
    "background: url("undefined")"

    Can anyone help? Thanks

    Vinx

    try to make 5 demo post with 3-4 in the featured post and last nes in another cat. besides uncategorized. some slider need more than 1 post/photo and not to be in uncat.

    I really like this theme and wish the maker of it would stop in to give the right definite fixes so we have to just mess with it. Check out he other themes i mentioned above bc they have nice sliders too but u might have to still tweak but may be easier than fixing this Brite page theme.

    Oh leave a url to your site too so we can see the problem.

    yea i can't get the slider to work either, not even show up. I created a category called Featured, added a post and added the pics i want in the slider, marked it with the Featured category, but nothing. Anything i'm doing wrong? Maybe i need more detailed steps. I'm new to this.

    My site is fundacionchimborazo.org

    Also, I uploaded a header image, but the default text is still showing on top! Sigh. Any ideas would help me out a lot.

    Thanks

    Try to make more than one post in the "featured" category bc some take more than one to work right IT MIGHT work!
    The prob w/ header pic not removing the title read above katyandchristine had that prob and fixed by removing some code from the header.pfp file.

    Good luck. If all else fails find another theme...lol

    thanks, got the header fixed. no luck on the slider, i wish i could at least get it to show up. Have 5 posts with Featured category but still doesnt show up (fundacionchimborazo.org).

    Also, does anyone know how to increase the text area in the right sidebar? it only fills up the left half with text, and the right half is empty. is there some part of the code that i have to change?

    Thank you

    Ok goto post(s) and add an image as a "featured image" and see if it will show the slider with it as featured image. There should be a section in right sidebar at bottom when u write/edit a post/page.
    If U dont see it ...look on top right of page for "screen options" then in the drop-down check off "Featured Image". Then it should be section in (edit page) rt side bar for u to try adding slider photo as "Featured Image". I think it does say it should be featured category but it worth a try. My cell phone demo site will remove any slider photo i DONT have as "Featured Image" so it might help.

    The sidebar thing i hope is simple:
    Look here: http://cellphones.newcastle19720.com/ i put random txt to show the diff side bar location and look. It seem u have yours in maybe the "sidebar Left" widget. To make full width try putting it in "SIDEBAR TOP" in the appearance > widgets. I hope it is simple anyway.

    I can still see "Ayudanos a Ayudar" in your site's header photo (i use firefox). Try to remove this:

    <div id="site-description"><p><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></p></div>

    from in netween the <!-- BEGIN HEADER --> & <!-- END HEADER --> in the header.php in the editer or ftp. It is the code that puts it there.

    Good Luck

    ^^ exactly what I think/want to say. This is so frustrating. I've tried every single fix in this thread and still can't get the image in the slider to show up. It shows me a single nav button so I know its finding the slider with the image, but its just not displaying it? any chance we could see screen shots of your backend setup that has it working givesuccess???
