Thanks to this forum, the slider is working! I'm close to getting everything just right, but I can not get only the static post to appear on the home page. It keeps leaving the static post, PLUS one more on the home page.
Anyone know how to get rid of this? I've tried selecting "Front page displays > Static Posts page (chose post because of the slider).
I've also selected "Blog pages show at most" to 1 and 0, but it still shows the most recent one.
I've come a LONG way with this template, gave up, came back again and again... If someone can help me with this, I think I can make the rest of it work! Thanks in advance!
